Discover PigaOne - World's First Foot Gear for All Barefoot Activities

SAN FRANCISCO (rushPRnews) 05/09/17 — - Making its impact one step at the time in the wearable tech industry - 

Piga, a wearable tech startup in the fitness industry,  has announced the impending Kickstarter launch of PigaONE© a uniquely supportive foot-based balance activation footwear designed to suit all barefoot activities.The patented PostureForce™ plantar arch-support technology is designed to provide comfort and support suitable for barefoot activities such as yoga, dance, martial arts, barre, fitness training, crossfit surf, and stand-up paddleboarding. PigaONE©is suitable for all low-to-moderate impact barefoot sports activities.

 

"Our objective was to create minimalist footwear sporting an attractive design that met the unique needs of barefoot sports enthusiasts for whom support and balance are essential", said Sandra Tremblay, President and founder of PIGA Inc. "Integrating a flexible arch-support system into a second skin slipper capable of strengthening the feet by neuromuscular activation, whether before, during or after training, is totally unprecedented".

Created from ultra-light amphibious material, the handmade footwear is designed for superior quality and durability. The material is washable and will be sold in a breathable carry-bag for easy portability to suit any active lifestyle

 

The Montreal-designed PigaONE© went through extensive testing throughout the prototype development process, with clinical trials verifying that use of the footwear during barefoot activities improved balance in 90% of trial participants. PigaOne's pioneering design is intended to reduce fatigue and improve blood flow to the feet, as well as strengthening muscles and tendons while still providing free range of motion. The wrap-around heel strap also straightens the foot into proper position to reduce the risk of injury.

 

It's estimated by a research group that the global wearable technology market size was valued at more than USD $18 billion in 2014 (1). The industry is forecast to continue its substantial growth rate in response to an increase in demand for specialized apparel equipped with technology to monitor and improve health.  The North American wearable technology market accounted for more than 49% of overall revenue share over the forecast period, due largely to the increase in health awareness. The industry is anticipated to continue growth at a CAGR of approximately 32% in the years from 2015 to 2022. Yet despite the increasing demand for fitness and health wearable products, major players in the industry, such as Adidas, Nike and FitBit, have failed to focus on the importance of stability and balance in athletes training for barefoot activities. 

That’s where PigaOne comes in! Review the technical sheet here.

 

Piga's primary focus on the PigaONE© barefoot active gear gives the company the opportunity to develop a leading design that will carve a niche in the expanding market. The company is now poised to leave a definite 'imprint' on a global industry.

 

At this time, PigaONE© foot gear is not available through local retailers, but the company has made special offers available during their crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. After the campaign is complete, thePigaONE© foot gear will be available for purchase through the company's online store, with plans to extend distribution through various global sales points as their distribution network expands.

 

The company has received financial support to assist with the research and development of the innovative footwear design in the form of an invaluable contribution from a doctor of podiatric medicine and from the Collegial Center for the Transfer of Apparel Technology, VestchPro.
