The human foot is an amazing piece of engineering consisting of 20 muscles, 28 bones and 33 joints all with unique functions. The foot performs a number of complex and opposing functions during each step. After heel strike the foot needs flexibility to adapt to uneven terrain and attenuate loading forces, while during push off the foot needs to transform to generate and efficiently transmit power to the ground. The performance requirements of the foot and ankle are the foundation of our design process. Workplace specific requirements and design features to minimise injuries are overlaid with the performance demands of the foot and ankle. This unique design philosophy is epitomised in our SYST - M ® stamp.
