Standing on right barefoot without
e3 grip (10 seconds)
two images are from a Tekscan Pressure Measurement System.
They show the amount of pressure generated by the right foot of an
individual without and with the e3 fitness grip.
The colored bar graph at the top the page
corresponds a color with the amount of force generated. (Purple
being the least amount of force and moving to red being the most
amount of force.)
The white and red square depict the starting point and the white
and red line depict the weight shift pattern.
The first illustration is without the e3
grips. Most of the weight is being exerted upon the heel and the
outside edge of the foot. The weight shift pattern (the red
and white line) moves randomly over a wide area.
Standing on Right Barefoot with e3
grip (10 seconds)
The second illustration shows the same
individual with the e3 grips. Here the weight is
distributed more evenly throughout the foot, and the weight shift
pattern is in a much tighter formation.
This indicates that the body weight is
brought more to mid-line of the body as well as the foot, meaning
that muscle recruitment is more efficient
throughout the leg, and body control is increased by using the e3
grips. This also
indicates an increase in stability for the foot, ankle, knee, hip,
