severely restricted for some people suffering from multiple sclerosis, stroke,
arthritis or orthopedic injuries, due to spasticity or joint involvement which
makes ankle and knee movement difficult. This
is a critical loss, as the ankle is the transport mechanism that moves the body
weight over the foot, allowing forward movement.
Thanks to a chance
discovery by Mrs. Carolyn Clawson who has MS, the CLAWSON ROCKER SHOE was found
to act as a substitute for this loss. By means of a rigid sole with a special
inner contour and bottom sole dimensions, this unique shoe becomes the transport
mechanism of the body. With the use
of this unique device, walking becomes possible with less ankle/knee involvement.
As a result FATIGUE and in many cases PAIN, are lessened considerably.
CLAWSON ROCKER is not a panacea for all walking problems.
Persons who have a sensory loss, severe muscle weakness or constant
equilibrium imbalance will not benefit from this shoe.
Also, this is not considered a corrective shoe for foot problems, per se,
but rather a therapeutic device that enhances the ability TO WALK!!!!
