Abstract (en)

This invention relates to health care shoes characterized in that the sole is higher in the front and lower in the rear, higher in the outer and lower in the inner. When a user wearing the shoes stands on a horizontal floor, the half sole of the foot is higher than the heel of the foot, so that the barycenter of the body is forced to move backward to the inner-rear end of the foot. Consequently, the tension of the lumbar muscles and the dorsal muscles may be adjusted, so that the backbone will stretch straight naturally. Wearing often the shoes may help rectify unhealthy standing or walking posture, strengthen the lumbar and dorsal muscles, prevent, romit and cure the chronic lumbago and cervical spondylopathy, with the curative effects stable, and the disease not recurrent. The shoes also have some effects to the weight reduction of adults, and have more remarkable effects in the matter of postpartum restoring of bodily form and teenager's bodily form rectification. <IMAGE>
