Why Become a Tester?

The INSITE Proven Comfort™ method is a series of biomechanics and psychometric tests administered by our research team that allows us to gather and interpret critical data about our insoles. These data include everything from plantar pressure to muscle activation, and our goal is to improve the insole prototypes we create for brands.

As a tester, you’ll be helping us implement the findings from our Proven Comfort tests, and you’ll be providing valuable feedback that will shape our future insole designs and the future of footwear.
