On average, nurses walk about 9,000 steps during their shift which can lead to backaches, negative arch support, foot pain, decreased blood flow, and increased swelling.
"For optimal foot health, it's important to distribute weight evenly while allowing the foot to flex and move. Experts believe putting rigid support under the arch inhibits the foot from flexing naturally and can actually cause irritation and pain. We heard a lot about this irritation which leads to our non-rigid, dynamic arch support".- BALA Footwear
