I want to inform all who reads this letter MEGAComfort did arrange an experimental test with their anti-fatigue insoles. We had employees from all three tours sample the mega insoles. We handed out surveys how employees felt before they used mega insoles and another survey after two weeks. The outcome/results were great, employees were very happy with the insoles. Those who were complaining about back, hip and foot problems said they felt a difference by using the insoles.

I have feet problems , Plantar Fascitis, and standing , walking was painful when I was at our Orlando show this year . Though I had prescription innersoles it was very uncomfortable and painful , could not wait to return to my hotel at the end of the day to take my shoes off and relax my feet.
When I visited your booth I was provided a sample and really did not think your innersoles would provide me any relief as I have tried so many innersoles and none worked. To my surprise yours was great ! . I was able to walk and stand with far less pain and fatigue on feet and ankles, wearing your innersoles was like walking on air.
Your innersoles was really a life saver for me during the week at our Orlando trade show – highly recommended for those who stand or do a lot of walking each day . And yes a lot safer because you’re not tripping over mats.
I look forward in working with you for the Guam market as I see great success!

Just wanted to follow up with you concerning the distribution of your insoles to our employees. Just a little history about this project though. During one of our ergonomic team meetings, one of our employees asked if there was anything that could be done to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with walking on the cement factory floor. We never gave it much though as no one had ever complained and after interviewing several employee, we found that no one complained because no one though complaining would help- after all it is a cement floor, what could possibly be done.
A few weeks after this ergonomic team meeting, I was attending the Eastern Ergonomics Conference in New York and happened to run into Professor Pat Carley who, years ago, was our fist on site Physical Therapist. We discussed our employees request. With management’s approval, we decided to try the insoles in one of our production departments. Pat conducted before and after comfort surveys and, to make a long story short, based on this, we received management approval to purchase 3,200 sets of the insoles.
It should be noted that part of the justification of this project was the fact that by placing the insoles in the employees shoes, we would not longer have to purchase expensive anti-fatigue mats. Every day, I ask an employee how e or she likes their insoles and 90% of the time they tell me that they could not walk the floor without them and that they don’t know how they did it before receiving the insoles. Not only do their feet feel better, but they experienced much less knee, hip, and back pain. Our thanks to you, Barb, and Pat for helping us to make this a very successful project.

Our operating room nurses and the ones in the pre operative area stand for up to 12 hours per day. They were having a lot of trouble with their legs. We tried the mats and they were very cumbersome as we never stand still very long. then after trying these it was a complete change. Thanks so much for letting us experience your great product.

We began testing the insoles in the beginning of 2004 as part of our Industrial Ergonomics Program. We then went on to test them with a variety of workgroups who use safety boots on a regular basis and who stand on hard surfaces for at least half of their day. We collected positive data and received great feedback through the C.L.U.E. surveys. We now include them as part of our Safety Shoe Program; employees with receive one pair of insoles a year (paid for by the company).
I have had employees come to me and say that they appreciate the insoles and that they feel less discomfort in their lower extremities and back. As one employee stated on his C.L.U.E. survey: “These things are great! I love them! Now I have to get them for all my other shoes. The difference was very noticeable the first time I wore them. MEGAComfort insoles offer great quality for the price, particularly when you are a large company and need to supply them in large quantities. I highly recommend them to enhance any organization’s efforts in providing a safe and comfortable work environment. I look forward to more innovative and effective products from MEGAComfort Inc.

I came into contact with Dr. Orvitz an his product while doing some investigation on anti-fatigue insoles. There had been a movement in the facility and corporate wide to do away with ergo matting and use wood flooring instead. Throughout the move to wood flooring a number of workers raised serious concerns with the state of their flooring and complained of sore feet, ankles, and knees. As a trial MEGAComfort supplied me with close to 20 pairs of insoles which were distributed to workers who signed up for the insole trial.
The response was overwhelmingly positive and this sparked increased interest in the product. Workers claimed that these were the most comfortable insoles they had ever used on the job. The requests have continued to mount and I am in the process of trying to have these insoles available in our general stores area so that they can be more widely distributed. The MEGAComfort insoles are durable, light, washable, elastic and most important effective. They are in high demand because of their superior design and comfort. I high recommend them.

Every department is required to have an ergonomic project submitted and completed each year. Late in 2004, our Medical and Safety Departments decided to try the MEGAComfort insoles in the areas where the employees were required to stand on concrete most of their shifts which sometimes lasted 12 hours. We had distributed another brand of insole earlier in the year and the employees were asked to let us know which insole they preferred.
When the verdict was in, all those participating liked the MEGAComfort insoles over the other brand. We then ordered the insoles before the end of the year. By the time January came, we were getting request for the insoles from other departments so we ordered again. The feedback was very positive. I think the requests for replacement insoles and the feedback speak highly of your product. One more thing needs to be mentioned about you and your company. I always received fast, courteous service. Whenever I had a question or called your company, I always received a quick response which is rare in these days of high tech.

I have been a MEGAComfort insole customer for the last two years. In my work area, operators and maintenance staff are on their feet most of the day. We have some ERGO fatigue mats for operators to stand on but we needed greater coverage. MEGAComfort insoles offered us our best solution. We tried the MEGAComfort insoles all last year and had major improvements in foot and muscle fatigue. Operators continue to request the insoles for their shoes and work boots. MEGAComfort has been very accommodating to our needs and quickly re-fills our orders. I recommend them highly to people who have foot problems or have jobs that require them to stand constantly. They are reasonably priced and offer a low cost solution to many foot and back problems.

I am that heavy set bald guy that kept coming by telling you how well they helped my broken foot. I have used inserts for years; many types have been in my shoes But your inserts have by far been the best. I never thought one type to another would be so different. That you
Seven months later and I’m still wearing them! Because they still work great. I absolutely love them. And with size 15 feet I can’t exactly go buy something off the shelf at most stores. Thankfully you have that size. I find them extremely comfortable. They really take a lot of stress off my joints.

I am assigned as the maintenance supervisor for a Blackhawk Medivac unit deployed to the Balkans. My duties at work consist of performing maintenance on the aircraft, which makes for long hours on my feet in a shop environment. In addition to working in the shop, I walk a few miles a day just getting from my barracks to work and the dining facility. Since I have put the MEGAComfort insoles in my boots I have noticed reduced lower back pain and my feet do not seem tired at the end of the day. A few months back I did a fifteen mile force march with a Forty pound pack. The day after the march I put my boots on to go to work and the insoles had maintained their shape and felt as good as the day I put them in my boots. Thank you for a great product.

I wanted to personally thank you for your outstanding service and product. I’m a 75 year old man. If I don’t have these under my feet, I’m in trouble. These insoles are the most comfortable thing you can step on. I need them because I can’t live without them. Thank you again.
These are best things you could put into a shoe. I use them in several pairs of dress shoes, tennis shoes and more. I really believe in the product. I recommend them whenever I hear someone talking about foot problems.
I just wanted to say thank you for everything that you and your crew did to insure Volkswagen received those insoles in a timely manner. That really means a lot to us when vendors will go out of their way to help us out, especially at such a short notice. We are forever grateful for you and your staff!
Again, thank you so much!!!

They are so comfortable! I use them in all my shoes. What I actually do is change them from tennis shoes to work shoes, work shoes to running shoes etc. It’s a wonderful product! I’ve enjoyed it so much. I highly recommend them.

Thank you for developing the PAM insoles, they have provided the only relief for the foot pain caused by structural and nerve damage that I have been living with for the past ten years. By reducing the pain in my feet they have also greatly increased my mobility, as a front line supervisor for a large corporation (GE) I am required to be in many different locations within our plant at various times during the day, your insoles have made what used to be an ordeal for me turn into a manageable task. Thanks again.

I bought a new pair of expensive safety shoes but the insole was no good. I spend a lot of time on concrete floors so I needed something for my feet. I was going to throw the shoes away but then I found your insole and put them in the shoes. Well the difference was night and day! I really liked them because it made my shoe more comfortable. I was really impressed. They supported my arch, the front of my foot and the palm of my foot. I threw the other insoles out because they were so hard, I think they were just a piece of cardboard. But I’m keeping these! They saved my shoes and my feet!

I received my sample Person Anti Fatigue Mat Insole – PAM 6 M89/W1011 and have just placed them in my shoes. I wanted to thank you so much! I am standing at my desk to work and experience a big improvement in comfort when standing wearing my athletic shoes. I have been searching for something this comfortable to recommend to my customers who are sitting and standing to work as this is much more practical than having a mat that has to be moved out of the way.
I appreciate the free pair and I will definitely recommend these to my customers!

I like the insoles so much, I just bought 8 more of them at Industrial Safety Shoe Company in Los Angeles. As the regional manager for a workers’ comp company, I recommend these insoles to my clients in the warehousing, distribution and healthcare industries – anywhere employees have to spend the day standing or walking. They are great!

Fourteen thousand steps per day is a lot of walking while trekking from one end of a very large convention center to the other attending safety session after safety session. After day one, my feet were ready to revolt and I knew days two and three were going to be a challenge. The best stop in the exhibit hall was the MEGAComfort booth where my after market insoles were replaced with a pair of MULTI-Thotic insoles. Suddenly, days two and three were much better than day one even after thirty two thousand more steps. Upon my return from the conference, I purchased two more pairs. Highly recommended!

I am really impressed by the Personal Anti-fatigue mat insole. The first worker I gave a set to was at the stage of considering cortisone injections for plantar fasciitis and this plan is now on hold. I will be starting a trial with a second worker within the next week, and she spends even more time on her feet on concrete surfaces, so I’m eager to receive her feedback as well. I’m wearing the third set, and I’m super-impressed at the difference it makes on concrete.

I must say out of all the out of all the free materials and displays they had at the ASSE show your product the (Anti fatigue Insoles) was by far the best. They feel great in my work shoes. I am an inspector and always on my feet. To top it off I’m a diabetic! My feet are very important and need the best care. I am interested in your product for myself. Please send me your product info.
Thank you very much.

The Anti-Fatigue Mat insoles have reduced foot and lower back discomfort that I experience while wearing steel toed work boots. Our company requires steel toed boots while performing field operations or working in the warehouse. After standing and walking around on concrete, asphalt, and dirt all day my feet become sore and tired. The Anti-Fatigue Mat insoles have reduced this discomfort and make steel toed boots more comfortable over extended periods.

I work for a large fire alarm company. I do a lot of walking in hospitals, college campuses, manufacturing plants etc. I own a pair of the anti-fatigue insoles and I love them. Your insoles make a big difference, even in my steel toe shoes which I wear sometimes. When I first put them in I thought, ‘This is Paradise!’ And so I now put them in my running shoes too.
