The article talks about proper foot care in the workplace. The work environment can be hell on one's feet. While one is working, the feet absorb up to three times the body weight. And working feet can travel up to 24 kilometers in a day, according to an Australasian Podiatry Council brochure. Causes of the many problems with the feet, ankles, lower legs, knees and back pain include poor foot posture and the way the foot impacts the ground when one is standing, walking and running. Formthotics' @work insoles are soft foam insoles for the working feet.
