Flexyfoot was invented by product designer David Goodwin, whose design team has over 25 years of experience in creating innovative, stylish and commercially successful products.
The idea for Flexyfoot came about after David’s sister, an MS sufferer, complained to him about the difficulties and discomfort of using her walking stick. She found that rubber feet wore down too quickly and were very difficult to change. His mother at 95 refused to use any sort of walking aid, even after a fall, because she thought it made her look ‘old’. Realising there was a need for walking aids of all types to be sporty and smart, David developed a flexible, safe and comfortable alternative to the humble walking stick ferrule. And so Flexyfoot made its debut.
Flexyfoot aims to transform the walking aid sector by offering real solutions to the real problems faced by those who need, or prefer, to have a little bit more stability. Flexyfoot assistive products not only look good and work well, but also have proven medical and therapeutic benefits, helping to challenge the stigma of walking aids and give safe, flexible support to those who need it.
The Flexyfoot ferrule is the result of three years of extensive research, design and development and has been created with the help of a leading orthopaedic surgeon. The Flexyfoot ferrule has been tested to the latest ISO standard for endurance and slip resistance and has had extremely positive feedback from medical professionals and the ATcare trails. Flexyfoot meets CE marking regulations, a process overseen by Dr Jed Place of Medical Device Consultants.
Proudly made in Great Britain!
When you are doing something new, working with local companies is so much easier than going overseas to manufacturers in, say, China. Development is an evolutionary process, you try something, test it, modify it, try it again until you get it right. Jumping in the car and going to see the supplier face-to-face means that they understand what is needed and that is faster, easier and better for the environment and local jobs than jumping on a plane to Hong Kong. And so Flexyfoot is not only designed in the UK, we are also proud to make it here using quality British suppliers.Buy Online
