Special shoe for Parkinson’s patient


Johann Brülisauer from Teufen in Switzerland has been suffering from Parkinson’s disease for years. He wears a special sole to help minimise the various symptoms, which include stiffness, immobility and instability of posture.

Thanks to the unusual surface, the Parkinson’s patient must constantly balance himself, which means he keeps moving and avoids a stooped posture. In addition, the ‘miracle’ sole also reduces the pain in his knees and dampens the impact on his joints with every step.
