Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is the painful inflammation of the tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. It affects more that 3 million people in the US each year and is the #1 reason to visit a podiatrist. Chronic cases can last more than a year.

Our Mission

We are developing a non-invasive treatment aimed at speeding recovery. Whether your goal is to resume your favorite sport, work a full day on your feet, or simply get out of bed pain free, we hope our technology will get you there quickly.
