Glastonbury, CT USA – November 15, 2021
Today, Zaneez® Health & Fitness announced the official launch of AnkleSTONE®, an appliance designed to improve athletic performance, reduce foot and ankle injuries, and accelerate recovery following an injury, surgery, or other ailment.
According to the company, AnkleSTONE® is revolutionary in its simplicity and effectiveness – providing pain relief and improved mobility and health to feet and ankles with regular use. Following an injury, it speeds recovery and helps avoid future injuries. AnkleSTONE® is equally as effective for professional athletes, fitness enthusiasts and active seniors. AnkleSTONE® creator Dr. Marien Zanyk, PhD added, “The problem for our active population where foot and ankle injuries are all too common is there haven’t been truly effective options for improving foot and ankle flexibility and providing relief from injury. People resort to professional physical therapy, steroids, or a host of ineffective home remedies. The keys to conditioning and therapy are proper stretching to improve flexibility and range-of-motion and tissue massage which stimulates muscles, improves circulation, and can reduce pain. Both are exactly what AnkleSTONE® is designed to do.”
Its many uses and capabilities include:
- Injury recovery
- Muscle stiffness
- Flexibility deficit
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Ankle joint restriction
- Surgical procedures
- Diabetic peripheral neuropathy
A 2014 study by the American Podiatric Medical Association of 1,000 U.S. adults 18 years or older found that 77% of Americans say they have experienced foot pain. For those that experience chronic pain, the number jumps to 83%. Whether it’s diminished athletic performance, loss of balance or the inability to take a pain-free run or walk, ensuring our feet and ankles are well-conditioned and healthy is imperative.
Dr. Zanyk, a noted specialist in Clinical Pathology and Musculoskeletal Recovery with degrees in Genetics and Orthopedic Physical Therapy, has distilled the results of decades of research and practical design experience into the creation of AnkleSTONE®. She believes it will not only improve the health of our most fitness-conscious athletes and enthusiasts but of anyone young or old who desire healthy, vigorous, and productive lives.
“I want to help people take control of their health and live more energetic, pain-free lives.” says Dr. Zanyk. “Foot and ankle health affects your entire body. They’re our foundation after all. Unfortunately, they’re often overlooked. That’s why I decided to design AnkleSTONE® to be extremely easy to use, lightweight yet rugged and of course effective. Virtually anyone can use it right out of the box with a few simple instructions provided with the product.”
