2012 marks the 24th anniversary of the first pair of Sneakers that were cooked up in our kitchen oven. Over the years we have made various improvements in the shape and in the durability continuing to make the Sneaker the best performance and therapeutic shoe anywhere in the world.
These photos are of a study done to correlate the mechanical sequences of the hoof flight with high speed videography and a computer analysis to compare the parity of the techniques. Sneakers were fitted with micro switches to give a mechanical record of the footfalls, breakover and liftoff. Lights were activated by the switches and recorded by high speed video. During this study the computer proved so sensitive it was able to detect the tread compression of the Sneaker! At the trot, it was measured that the tread compresses several mm during each stride.
