TODAY’S PATENT – SHOE INSOLE
The SHOE INSOLE was invented by Walter Mauch (Dusseldorf 31) on the 28th of July 1998 , bearing patent number US5784811A.
The present invention relates to an insole for a shoe with a flat base-sole made of an elastic foam and corresponding to the shoe contour, said base-sole also comprising on its upper side several integral, cushion-elevations also made of foam and located in the area of the foot-sole reflex zones. The solution of the invention provides that the base-sole and the elevations are uniformly made of a foam with a shore hardness A of 30.degree. to 45.degree. and in that the peak regions of the elevations project by the mean thickness or twice the mean thickness of the adjoining base-sole areas above the upper side of the base-sole.
Each peak region includes a flat plateau area which forms a rest surface upon which a foot sole can rest. The peak regions project upward from the base-sole by a thickness which is up to twice the mean thickness of an area of the base-sole adjoining the elevation portions. One of the objective of the invention is to create an insole both suitable for massaging the reflex zones of the foot-sole and simpler to manufacture than heretofore.
