A 3,000 year old Egyptian mummy foot with a prosthetic big toe. Made from wood and leather, it is one of the oldest prosthesis to ever be discovered.⁣

The foot with the amputated toe belonged to a woman who was approximately 50 to 60 years of age when she died. The prosthetic toe was designed with a nail divot, which likely signifies that aesthetic was an important factor in wearing it, especially since Ancient Egyptians often wore sandals. The prosthetic also helped the woman with her balance when she walked.⁣

According to Andrea Loprieno-Gnirs of the University of Basel:⁣

“By using a sophisticated way of fixing the individual parts of the prosthesis to each other, the artificial limb had a balancing effect and gave, to some extent, a freedom of movement."⁣

“Based on our scientific examinations, our team was able to verify at least four materials used for manufacturing the prosthetic device. We could also determine two phases of refitting of the prosthesis during lifetime and identify signs of longer use.”⁣

sore feet from all this house sitting? wear shoes.

sore feet from all this house sitting? wear shoes.

Happy Friday!

A good slice of advice: Being barefoot in your house is very hard on your feet, and most foot injuries happen when you are barefoot. Health is a topic at the forefront of most people’s minds right now, so why not at least take care of your feet?

I grew up in a house with a dad who was NEVER barefoot in the house, and I have totally followed in his footsteps (ha!). The 2 pairs of shoes I wear non-stop are my New Balance 990’s and my Haflinger slippers. Every day, the second I get out of bed, I put these slippers on. Nothing beats the feeling of your arch being perfectly cradled in a cozy felt shoe. And if I am leaving the house, the 990’s are on. I am obsessed!

What have you been wearing on your feet lately? Have you been barefoot all day inside your house? We hope you are all staying healthy, and are taking care of your feet!

xo, Erica

How to alleviate foot, knee pain with custom orthotics

We have an article published in the Hamilton Spectator, please feel free to check it out. You may find answers to your foot and footwear issues.

A good supportive shoe can be every bit as effective as a simple orthotic. If moving to a more supportive shoe does not relive foot pain, then an orthotic or orthopedic adjustment may be required.
