SOLE RUNNER® Barefoot Shoes 2nd time winner of the Innovation Award for Ergonomics 2022

With the 4th awarding of the Ergonomics Innovation Award, one can almost speak of the establishment of a tradition! What pleases us is that the topic of ergonomics is on the rise and is always being rethought.

This is also reflected in the many new subject areas that we encountered when reviewing the applications. Which is also a reflection of the upheaval in which we currently find ourselves.

Wherever people are, they encounter products and solutions that make life healthier and more sporty, or simply give them pleasure. Successful ergonomic concepts are characterized by ease of use and high utility value. The range of this year's award winners is wide: whether at home in the bathroom, with shoes, comfortable seating furniture or for restful sleep on ergonomic reclining systems, on the road on a bicycle, at school with satchels suitable for children, or on construction machinery in the tough world of work. All award winners were able to position themselves as exemplary companies in terms of their overall ergonomic orientation.
