The plantar fascitiis treatment market is mature, in the billions and growing as baby
boomers get older and begin experiencing foot problems. The prevention side of the
market is also growing as social media and the internet educate us about our health
concerns and options.
Waterstone Capital LLC is our underwriting partner and is providing bridge funding to
support the management and marketing of this offering. Larry Hudson Managing Partner.
With our military POC (Point of Contact) and contact administrator SAIC (Science
Applications International Corporation) here in San Diego, DAMPS Technology Smart
Boots have completed successfully Phase I contract user field and combat tested in 2010-
2012 with Special Operations SOF (Special Operation Forces), SORSE (Special
Operations Research Development, Test & Evaluation) and AFSOC (Air Force Special
Our continued plan is to add 2013 Phase II contract award to include two hundred fifty
user ninety day, double blind field testing data to support DAMPS Technology as a
510(k) FDA medical device for the prevention and treatment of plantar fascitiis (heel
strike injury). Currently DAMPS is a 510(k) exempt medical device, as instructed by the
FDA allowing us to market the amount of shock mitigation but not the direct benefits.
DAMPS testing included F-Scan pressure surface testing and recorded over 68% increase
in heel strike shock mitigation when compared to conventional footwear. DAMPS has
also been independently third party accelerometer tested at 1G 3G and 5G load levels
with outstanding results in comparison with current shock reduction technology footwear.
DAMPS BIOMED I LP will ramp up management, marketing and CNC machine a
minimum of nine (9) production molds and manufacture and assemble five hundred pairs
in three to four sizes of DAMPS Technology Outsoles and DAMPS Technology Inserts
(DTI), with varied working, walking, medical and athleisure uppers. The manufactured
footwear samples will be utilized to support 510(k) testing and to demonstrate DAMPS
Technology to designated medical license manfuacturing partners and trade shows.
DAMPS Management Statements
Dr. John A. Ciccone DPM
“At this point in time, I am addressing the potential marketing of the DAMPS system of
shock mitigation footwear. As the only tested and proven system to decelerate the impact
of heel strike and then assist the propulsive phase of gait, DAMPS is on the verge of
coming to market. The testing by the military and the results of independent
quantification of its efficacy will allow the marketing of the system to the military, the
public sector and also the growing segment of the population able to access shoes through
the federal Medicare system of DME (Durable Medical Equipment), where therapeutic
shoes are prescribed by physicians and podiatrists for eligible baby boomers. At this time
when the fifty five and above segment of the population is retiring but not giving up any
activities including high impact sports, i.e. running, tennis and softball, the incident of
injury us well into double digits.”
As the year progresses we are ready to come to market on the up slope of this trend in foot related problems and the need for this type of shoe.
Ed Stone President of Boot World
I like the idea of making footwear better and improving shock mitigation is an area of
great importance. There is no better technology to reduce shock mitigation then Damps
Technology and it does not wear out! Its performance can be relied on for the life of the
shoe or apparatus. This in itself is an amazing feat in this day of smoke and mirrors and
fad, “throw away gimmicks”.
Jon Nussbaum Military POC SAIC
“It is the right time for DAMPS in the US military. The shock mitigation properties which DAMPS uniquely provides has been needed by all branches of the military for over a decade, but is need now more than ever due to a spontaneously shrinking budget, an emerging smaller peace time professional all-volunteer force, with continued dependence on an older per capita Reserve and National Guard. The DAMPS boot is needed to protect recruits from lower extremity injuries (approximately 30% sustain these injuries during basic training), Line units which are carrying heavier and heavier combat and basic loads than ever before, and reserve forces which are getting older and more prone to injuries then the regular forces. The DAMPS boot, as tested by all branches of the military and special forces (Army, Navy/Marines, Air Force and US Special Forces Command, is the only identified solution to ease extensive shock experienced by dismounted troops/Marines, enhance the wearers tolerance and endurance while sustaining readiness and alertness. This product protects the force and reduces the life cycle cost of the soldier while maintain force readiness and preparedness.”
Bill Walton NBA Hall of Famer
“If your footwear doesn’t work for you, you are simply dragging around a logo. Please be smarter than your shoes. There’s a reason why I am a DAMPS I LP Investor.”
Founder General Partner Jeff Brown
“We are very excited to be able to offer the medical markets the benefits of a proven
shock mitigation technology. Our F-Scan pressure mapping testing and user field testing
with Special Operation Forces (SOF) along with independent third part 1G 3G & 5G
accelerometer testing, secure DAMPS as the leader in shock mitigation footwear for the
military, medical and commercial work/professional markets.”
