Hi-Tec have undertaken some advanced research to examine the different forces applied by the bare foot during the running gate, and from this have developed the 4:SYS technology.
For 2 years Hi-Tec worked with SATRA to examine the dynamics of the foot in a variety of sporting contacts. The basics of the approach, utilising the latest pressure mapping technology, was to assess and evaluate the high-pressure areas of the foot during the respective sporting movements.
Vibram® soles are always produced with three objectives: to guarantee the best performance, the maximum level of comfort and long lasting quality.
The running / walking study has revealed that there are four critical phases to the running gait. Heel strike, mid-foot stance, forefoot and toe off. The new insight here is the high pressure that is driven through the big toe and the critical role that plays in balance, stability and forward propulsion.
