Together with the established comfort shoe brand Avena, we were able to develop an innovative comfort shoe that combines freedom of movement and joint protection. The intelligent integration of our Betterguards Technology ensures comfort by providing providing effective protection in daily use.
“Betterguards has developed a technology that prevents ankle injuries in an absolutely convincing way. Following their conviction, the team not only offers a product but a very professional and comprehensive marketing package: from excellent technical advice and support during the shoe development to the supply of very good informative material to support the marketing, everything is included. I wish Betterguards all the best for a rapid worldwide market breakthrough -
The system is well worth it!”
Avena GmbH & Co. KG
Every year, approximately 100.000 employees in Germany suffer an ankle injury (DGUV 2019).
While injuries in leisure time are covered by statutory and private health insurance, employees are covered by statutory accident insurance. This results, among other things, in a claim to individually constructed shoes with built-in ankle protection.
In other countries such as Austria or Switzerland, a large number of patients or private payers are supplied with individually constructed shoes by orthopaedic shoe technicians.
With our two partners REHA aktiv 2000 in Germany and the DAVID Institute Krems in Austria, patients can count on Betterguards Technology in the future. For this purpose, the responsible orthopedic shoe technicians from our partners' network will be provided with so-called "kits" by us, which allow easy integration of our technology into individualized shoes.
