VPECS will preserve blood flow to the toes in down-hill ski boot, thereby increasing temperature in the toes
VPECS will reduce pressure on important nerves in the foot, thereby reducing pain
VPECS respects the anatomy of the middle foot making the shoe more comfortable
VPECS have benefits in many types of shoes as the basic principle is the same regardless of footwear
VPECS improves grip and control as it secures the middle foot by a three-point fixation
VPECS works well in shoes where a tight fit is important
The Problem

Footwear is the interface between the feet and their environment. Human feet have evolved to become mechanical wonders, with 26 bones and more than 30 ligaments providing resilience both for strain over time and extreme strain during short periods. Shoes and footwear have aimed at facilitating resilience without sacrificing function, and they have achieved this through innovations focused on the underside of the foot. The upper side of the foot, the dorsal aspect, is where shoes or boots are tightened. This, however, is also where arteries and nerves are located, and pressure on these structures can lead to cold feet, pain, and reduced control.

The Solution

VPECS (Versatile PErfusion Control System) is a system that takes the anatomy of the dorsal aspect of the middle foot into account. VPECS respects and protects important anatomical structures and reduces nerve and artery pressure as well as increases grip and control.
