The Science of AFX
AFX is often described as ‘simple’ and ‘easy to use,’ which a great because ‘simple’ means that people understand it and ‘easy to use’ means that they will use it! But don’t be fooled, there is a lot of science and engineering packed into each AFX. Check-out our ‘Science of AFX’ graphic.
AFX By The Numbers
Here is an infographic featuring the latest statistics on AFX taken from clinical trials, in-clinic testing, and our customer satisfaction surveys. We are particularly proud of our Customer Satisfaction numbers because the majority of customers who use AFX for ailments such as plantar fasciitis, shin splints, Achilles tendinitis, etc., are long-term, chronic sufferers who come to AFX as a “last resort”. Helping them get back to doing what they love makes it all worthwhile. AFX By The Numbers.

2nd United States Patent Issued for AFX
One of the comments that we get most often about AFX is ‘Wow, this thing isn’t like anything else on the market’. AFX is definitely unique and the good people at the US Patent & Trademark Office feel the same way. On March 26th, Progressive Health was awarded a second US Patent (US 8,403,817) for our AFX technology. At first glance, AFX might seem like a simple device (which is good, the best devices are simple!), but once you use it you quickly realize that there is a whole bunch of science behind every feature.
Canadian Running thinks AFX is “Gear you should know about”
Nice piece of coverage of AFX – Ankle Foot maXimizer in the latest edition of Canadian Running Magazine . Running is an industry dominated by information (and marketing dollars!!) on running shoes, fancy watches and tech clothing. Don’t get us wrong, good shoes and good gear are important, but they don’t amount to much if you can’t run because of plantar fasciitis, shin splints, Achilles tendonitis, ankle instability, etc.. Thanks to Canadian Running for helping us get the word out there that strong feet and ankles are important! <download image here>
