MERRITT ISLAND, Fla., Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Vibrations Shoes Inc. (OTCPink: GVSI), announces that the company has acted on a key segment of its marketing plan to introduce its unique patented products, vibrating shoes, to the U.S. Government Services Administration (GSA.)
The GSA accepts, reviews and approves schedules (contracts) for all governmental services including the Veterans Administration. Good Vibrations Shoes Inc. views the V.A. as an excellent venue for its vibrating therapeutic shoes. The V.A. maintains 153 hospitals and 773 clinics.
According to the 2010 census of the Office of the Inspector General, there were 82,305 patients in the V.A. that have Diabetes and are at risk for lower extremity amputation. The prevention of amputation is a major indication for the use of Good Vibrations Shoes since the shoes can help stimulate improved circulation and are designed for a roomy fit.
Another major indication for Good Vibrations Shoes is fall prevention. Each year, more than 1.6 million older U.S. adults go to emergency departments for fall-related injuries. Among older adults, falls are the number one cause of fractures, hospital admissions for trauma, loss of independence, and injury deaths. Patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) are most susceptible to falls. 40,000 patients with Parkinson's disease visit the V.A. every year. Scientific studies have demonstrated that vibration applied to the feet can improve balance. By vibration stimulation to the small nerve endings in the foot, it is possible to stimulate improvement in balance, and thus help prevent falls. Good Vibrations Shoes Inc. will soon be funding and conducting its own study to benchmark the positive properties of its line of therapeutic vibrating shoes, and the enormous impact it can have on peoples' lives.
For these reasons and more, Good Vibrations Shoes Inc. is extremely optimistic about securing its own GSA schedule, opening a huge market and demographic for the company's products.
