Description

Description: 

The innovative Czech start-up company in cooperation with physiotherapists and home accessories designers has developed solution simulating natural uneven floor surface for indoor use.
The idea was motivated by outdoor barefoot walk, what is generally recommended by physiotherapists and orthopaedists.

The feet become more sensitive and better inform the central nervous system about the position and nature of the surface. Surface diversity forces users to engage different muscles in different positions, thereby developing muscle coordination. If users regularly expose its feet to inequalities that not only stimulate them as well as circulation, there are positive changes such as lower blood pressure etc.

Walking on uneven surfaces has long been recommended by orthopaedists and paediatricians as a basic prevention of flat feet. Also, by walking on an uneven ground the vestibular system of the inner ear is trained, thus improving body balance.

The solution can be used as single carpet or set of carpets designed for various home premises; e.g. for living room, hall, child’s room, etc.
