Balance Pro


Mission Statement

Focusing on delivering practical and innovative solutions, BalancePro has a simple vision to achieve: a world with no falls that are preventable. We are a Canadian healthcare company that strives to prevent falls and improve balance for millions through accessible innovation and cutting-edge scientific research.

BalancePro features an insole technology that has been clinically proven to reduce falls by 44% in older adults.

Background

BalancePro insole was jointly designed and developed by researchers at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centers, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, University of Toronto and Wilfrid Laurier University, with support from the Canadian Institutes of Health and the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

BalancePro features a specially designed ridge around its perimeter to stimulate and enhance foot plantar-surface (sole) sensation and therefore, enhance one’s balance and reduce possibility of falls. Such stimulation and enhancement have been clinically-proven to be effective for older adults and individuals with Parkinson’s.
