Patented DAMPS (Directional Axial Magnetic Propulsion Systems) TM is the worlds first shock mitigation technology, utilizing opposing super magnets in the outsole of footwear, to reduce conventional dynamic biomechanic motion shock.
In testing with Special Operation Forces (SOF)
DAMPS Technology Smart Boots recorded a reduction in heel strike of over 68%. That means a soldier, anyone wearing DAMPS can walk 10 miles and save the shock of 7 miles.
Plantar fascitiis is the number one injury seen by podiatrists. Low back problems are the number two cause of employee downtime. Currently DAMPS is a 510(k) exempt medical device. Our plan with Phase II-III DOD program testing is to gain 510(k) medical device status for the prevention and cure of plantar fascitiis, and impact related back and lower extremity injury.
There are no industry comparables that can come close to the shock mitigation demonstrated by DAMPS Smart Boots.
In addition to superior shock mitigation, as the wearer moves forward in the motion gait, the DAMPS system returns to it's unloaded position and adds real time propulsion. You can feel it in every step!
How does DAMPS Work? DAMPS utilizes opposing super magnets with a biomechanic compression array in the heel of footwear to provide an active suspension/propulsion system.
Anyone on their feet all day and/or night will benefit from this advanced shock mitigation system.
In addition a by-product of the opposing super magnets, 3 joule watts of DC current is produced, providing a platform for Energy Harvesting.
