Vibrating insoles for wobbly/numb feet
Where can I get vibrating insoles for my father's feet ? Researchers in January issue of the Annals of Neurology reported that vibrating insoles allow diabetics with numb feet and stroke victims with uncertain balance to stand quietly without swaying or losing their balance. The random fluctuations effectively stimulate the neurons on the bottom of their feet. There is a picture of the insoles with 3 signal points per foot and obviously some sort of power supply. I do have electronic copy of newspaper article if it helps
