GROUND REACTION FORCE TESTING
The benefits can help you wether your Standing, Walking, or Running. At work, life, or Play.

If you have feet, you probably need this...

Discover if you are part of the 90% of people have issues that are caused by their feet.  Most have not connected the dots and can't believe that their hip, knee, or back pain could be triggered by how your feet meet the ground.  Take this quick self test to see if you are one of the 90%.

GRF TESTING


Ground reaction force alignment , will change the way you understand your feet forever. Both pronation and supination are accounted for in this deceptively simple testing process. 



What is the Ground Reaction Force Alignment™  Or  GRF-A?

  It measures and neutralizes all the forces involved in creating and sustaining one footed dynamic balance. GRF™ is created by all the complicated automatic and conscious movements and reflexes that occur in our bones, nerves, and muscles between our feet and the floor or ground. Less than 10% of people are born with great feet, and are blessed with a foot and ankle structure that makes it easy for them to move seamlessly from foot to foot. They look like they could be one footed all day and their GRF™ #s are always very low.  But the other 90% of us struggle. Many find it so hard to be one footed, usually two feet are needed to have any stability.  If your GRF™ # is really high.  Your ankles will tilt, and toes will grip, and the fight will rage on for balance while you bending your knee on one foot.  At Foot Foundation we are all about conserving and minimizing the energy it takes to live, work, and play, one foot at a time! GRF™ - Ground Reaction Force Suppressing Technology does just that. On a custom angled GRF™ Reduction Foundation, those who initially struggled, after installing GRF™ Reduction, look like THEY could stand there all day!


This process reveals, independently, which custom angled foundation neutralizes the effects of both, pronation and supination. 

YOu Can Test yourself!!

In the photos below you can see how it works

We test you, or you can test yourself by purchasing your own "testing kit" or you can call us and have a half an hour Skype session to get tested, and better understand how your feet work for you.


The Bottom line: BALANCE AND ALIGNMENT ARE CRUCIAL TO PREVENT any OVER USE INJURY!  Most People don't connect the aches and pains in the ankles, knees and hips to a problem that could be coming from biased "Ground Reaction Forces" that travel up AND DOWN through the body due to mis-alignment of the foot tripod. The patented, Foot Foundation process, is completely unique,  making it a VERY DISRUPTIVE, emerging technology. The first Ground Reaction Force™ Symmetry focused technology. Creating symmetric neutral Ground Reaction Forces for each foot, at work, life, or play! 


OUR MOBILE LABS:  We are Here, There, Anywhere!

Foot Foundation's Mobile Lab can bring our ground breaking foot technology to you, wherever you are In the Roaring Fork Valley, or Colorado. We are road ready and looking for the next event, clinic, or show.  contact us with ideas.

What makes this approach so different?

It provides a custom position for each foot

It is deceptively simple, and extremely powerful

Instead of supporting the arch it changes the angle of the world beneath you.

Foundations come in 12 different angles and in 3 different densities.

We also offer 3D printed totally custom foundations.

Test results include input from bones, muscles and the brain. These are the key ingredients

for fundamental balance.


What is the root of the problem?

  • Man has made the world flat everywhere we live.
  • Every foot reacts differently to the continually flat ground.
  • Depending on the severity of your foot's problem, there is a equal and opposite amount of compensation.
  • Compensation causes repetitive, over use injuries.
  • If you are functionally footed you will not have these problems.

GRF™ testing makes the ground come up and meet your feet equally. Effectively filling the void under each foot. The custom angled foundations become an extension of the ground beneath your feet. At precisely The right angle, every step of the way. Continually allowing your feet to land on the ground in a symmetrically neutral position.


For the tech heads:

INSTEAD OF SIMPLY "SUPPORTING ARCHES". FOOT FOUNDATION, MEASURES AND NEUTRALIZES GROUND REACTION FORCES. WHICH ARE THE RESULT OF ACTIVELY PRONATING AND SUPINATING WHILE CREATING AND SUSTAINING DYNAMIC BALANCE. SINGLE FOOT TESTING IS THE KEY TO UNLOCKING THE 3 MAIN INGREDIENTS IN BALANCE. THE STRUCTURAL, MUSCULAR, AND NEUROLOGICAL ACTIVITIES. BASED ON THESE TEST RESULTS, OUR UNIQUE CUSTOM ANGLED FOUNDATIONS CHANGE THE WORLD BENEATH YOUR FEET, PROVIDING A CUSTOM POSITION FOR EACH FOOT INDIVIDUALLY. WHICH CONTINUALLY MAINTAINS EACH FOOTS MOST NEUTRAL PLACE, FROM INSIDE THE SHOE, BOOT, OR SKATE, RELATIVE TO THE FLAT WORLD. MINIMIZING THE DYNAMIC GROUND REACTION FORCES.



How it Works - Why you NEED it now - When it matters most

Neutralize Ground Reaction Force (GRF™ )!

  • We provide a patented GRF™ measuring, protocol.
  • Like prescription glasses focus your vision, our system brings illusive Ground Reaction Force™ into an angular focus.

  • It quantifies the Ground Reaction Force™ movements and puts your foot into its most functional range of motion relative to the flat ground. Your G-TAK™ Axis becomes ALIGNED.

  • The end result is that the user has a neutral foot for any sport, day to day use, or standing activities.

  • Most world class athletes enjoy a functionally neutral foot from birth. We can level the playing field.

  • Most severely biased feet end up injuring their owners over time magnifying the symptoms of over use symptoms caused by the natural foot tripod biases.

Misalignment is costly...

  • Pronation is a structural inward collapse of the foot. Causing your reactions to the flat world to be biased. Requiring certain muscles to intervene and control this collapsing structure. All these muscles tendons that run from the leg and ankle into the foot to be hyper-tense.
  • Usually left untreated by ordinary orthotics and foot beds, the muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissue structures that hold the bones together at the joints become inflamed, and overused. The usual litany of symptoms follow: fallen and arches, shin splints, Achilles Tendonitis, generalized tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, ball of the foot, heel spurs, hammertoes, muscle fatigue, muscle aches, vague pain, cramps, frequent ankle sprains, knee, hip, lower back, and reduced muscle efficiency.
  • Obviously, endurance, accuracy, and strength are the first to feel the results of a biased ground reaction force (GRF™ ).




Most people don't realize they have this normal foot problem!

  • Over 90% of people pronate and supinate moderately or excessively. Creating biased ground reaction forces™ .

  • This problem is easy to measure, and suppress. with GRF™ Testing. You can either DIY manually, or with our new Digital GRF™ spectrum analysis.

There are 3 times a day that you need Foot Foundations...

At WORK, IN LIFE, AT PLAY

Save your money, time and health!

Don't waste time or money on expensive or cheap "arch supports". That just don't addresses the root problem. Almost every orthotic made focus on supporting the arch of the foot. Which proves to be counter-productive during dynamic balance testing. Usually causing more problems with performance and comfort in the end. G-TAK Alignment™ is the new school of "measured foot positioning" and that is the critical issue.


  • It is possible to start feeling better now!
  • It is possible to prevent costly surgeries!

Figure Skaters can for example, edge, spin, turn, jump and land better!

Listen to this skater describe how she felt after using the FootFoundation Ground Reaction Force ™ Neutralizing Foundations in her skates during a practice session at Adult Nationals (AN) recently in Marlborough, Mass!

We had great success at Adult Nationals discovering so many skaters attending the competition who balanced better through GRF™ Alignment !!

Watch the difference biking ---

Pedaling on a stationary bike before and after brings the problem into clear focus using Ground Reaction Force™ Neutralizing foundations. The results are clear! Notice the internal rotation of the knees in the before video on the left. Notice the knees come into view when using the custom foundations on the right. Now the foot knee and hip are  aligned and the knee travels in a more straight line up and down instead of moving in a circle. This if more efficient and less stressful to the knees!

By simply using our custom angled foundations, you can see powerful results that are clear and concise!!
