Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine research study
The research study conducted by the Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine in 2004 has provided modern scientific evidence of the health benefits of the Kenkoh Health Sandals.
The premise of the study was that the Kenkoh Health Sandal can ease or prevent fatigue.
Tiredness is a serious problem for people in our stressful modern society. Various alternative treatments and health products are gathering attention for relieving tiredness and associated complaints and illnesses. There is however little research on how such sandals affect tiredness. In this research, the health benefits of massage sandals were examined, a simple health product anyone can use, to see its capability in preventing and easing tiredness.
The findings of the study concluded that after wearing the Kenkoh Health Sandal, participants had:
- more energy
- a pulse rate that remained significantly lower/improved circulation
- reduced swelling (in the feet and legs)
- reduced foot pain
- a warmer, happier mood
