Stryker Sneakers Lawsuit Helpline Launched
Class Action lawyer Network has launched a Sketcher Lawsuit Helpline. The helpline is moving ahead with a national campaign to locate all people injured by Sketcher sneakers.
Dec. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- When you think sneakers you usually think jogging, running, aerobics at the gym and general balance and stability. Sketchers had a different idea. They thought a magical sneaker that would offer a better body with very little effort. All you had to do was walk and wear their sneakers which would help you tone by creating a balance challenge. According to our rehabilitation counselor "Unfortunately many people were injured and many of them seniors who have balance issues to begin with""These sketcher toning sneakers created a balance challenge which, in theory, would make the wearer tone up by creating the need for the muscles to react to the challenge. "Unfortunately the brain muscle connection did not follow thru for many people"
"Sketcher claimed a patented design which has a rolling bottom that changes the way a person walks. The design utilizes different muscles in the body and firms them up. However people are suffering serious injury."
