In 2020, I experienced my worst ever injury by fully rupturing my Achilles Tendon. At the time, I had no idea how serious the injury was, and I kept asking myself how it just suddenly happened. There was no sign of pain or inflammation around the tendons. During the two years of rehab and physical therapy sessions, I have seen so many patients at the clinic who are on the same boat as me and some are worse on crotches. I started wondering what are the deep root causes of these injuries and how can we prevent them? Is there a way that we could reduce the risk of injury?
I then start asking my friends who are professional athletes and nine out of ten of them have experienced medium to high-level injuries like rupturing their Achilles, ACL, hamstring, and twisting ankles. So, I thought, what if we can reduce the risk of these injuries happening if we proactively create products that give the wearer a strong stable base to express themselves with?
