Abstract

The apparatus comprises: (a) a sandal element, including: a sole element having inflatable chambers 4, 6, 8, 10 for selectively and independently applying pressure to distinct portions of the user's sole, each of the inflatable chambers being located at a specific portion of the sole element; and a shell element for fastening the sole element to the user's foot; and (b) an inflating system for independently inflating and deflating the inflatable chambers, preferably in a periodical manner. The inflating system may include: a pump; a valvular system for controlling the flow of fluid into and out of the inflatable chambers; a pressure sensor; and a controller. The user may specify the chambers to be inflated and deflated and the sequence of inflation and deflation, as well as the frequency of inflation and deflation and the operating time of the inflating system, thereby simulating any motor activity of the foot, including standing, walking and running.
