Brave soles? Study looks to prevent foot pain in standing workers

People whose jobs require standing all day have a greater risk of plantar foot pain. Researchers at SFU’s Surrey campus are working with WorkSafeBC and Kintec, a Surrey-based footwear and custom orthotics company, to develop a new insole that will differentiate worker’s weight-bearing behavior. The research is aimed at better understanding whether standing is a risk factor for foot pain.
