PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 13, 2009 /PRNewswire/ -- The latest game-changing tactic in the Philadelphia Eagles and
76ers playbook is military-grade technology to protect the player's feet. "Current insoles were just not working,
resulting in muscle injury, joint pain, foot fatigue and soreness. So we literally needed to step up our game," says Dr.
Lee Cohen, team podiatrist for both the Eagles and 76ers. Unequal Insoles, which according to a Villanova
University study block up to 80 percent of harmful shockwave impact to reduce the injury and fatigue that player's
experience. The insoles are also the first product ever in the sporting goods industry to use the bullet-stopping power
of Dupont Kevlar as a shock suppressant. The Eagles and 76ers now join other athletes already wearing unequal
insoles, a list that includes PGA golfers, Olympic athletes and marathon runners. All have benefited from Unequal's
decade of university-partnered research ( Villanova University, The Rothman Institute ) that has
cost millions of dollars and resulted in 50-plus patients. Speaking specifically to his work with the Eagles, Cohen
said:" With the trend of turf and the ever-increasing speed of play, football has more of an impact on the human foot
than any other sport. I knew Kevlar was lightweight, pliable and the best shock blocking material, so we tried the
Unequal insoles. The players felt the difference immediately." Cohen went on compare technology to his own
$200 specialty insoles. " Unequal's insoles are truly injury eliminators, reducing the stress unlike any technology I've
seen before, even in my own products." Completing his notes on his work with the Eagles, Dr. Cohen relayed player
feedback, citing that many of the players could " no longer feel the discomfort of cleats through the shoe's sole" with
Unequal insoles. They also reported that the lightweight, custom fitted insoles kept the shoes light, and helped them
run longer - all while giving them greater rebound.
