Naboso™ Technology was founded by Podiatrist, and Human Movement Specialist Dr Emily Splichal of New York City. Naboso’s innovative texture activates the nervous system, establishing foot to core stability – from the ground up.

The skin on the bottom of the foot contains thousands of small nerve mechanoceptors which are sensitive to different stimuli – including texture, vibration, skin stretch, deep pressure and light touch. These nerves play an important role in how we maintain upright stance, activate our postural muscles and dynamically control impact forces.

One of the key features of Naboso™ Technology is the evidence-based texture. Several studies including 2011 study by Hatton et al, demonstrate that specific textures can improve balance and stability by reducing medial lateral sway. Naboso™ Technology matches this evidence-based texture shape, height and distance to ensure that the most optimal stimulation of the nervous system.

Another feature of Naboso™ Technology based on evidence, is the hardness of the material. Research indicates that harder surfaces stimulate the nervous system more effectively, and provide increased proprioceptive input from the ground up. A 2012 study by Iglesias et. al., demonstrated that the harder the insole studied, the greater the reduction in medial lateral sway


Research studies have demonstrated the power of textured insoles for patients with neurological conditions. Naboso Insoles match the research to provide postural and movement benefits. Their unique patent-pending textural design uses evidence-based design parameters to achieve optimal stimulus.


Something as simple as a textured insole can have a profound impact on these individuals’ movement patterns and quality of life.

We have seen incredible, immediate results by putting the Naboso™ Textured Insoles into the shoes of some of these sufferers. The power of the foot cannot be overlooked and neither can the impact of Naboso™ Technology.


Research has shown that a very effective way to stimulate the skin on the bottom of the foot is with texture. The research behind textured insoles and textured surfaces has demonstrated enhanced postural control, reduced risk of injury and a faster return to sport after injury.


Naboso Education courses are designed by Dr Emily Splichal, founder of  EBFA (Evidence Based Fitness Academy) and leader in barefoot training and “from the ground up” training principles.

Client Testimonials

I’ve been wearing my Naboso insoles for about 8 months now and just like the first day I put them on, I still find it amazing how they “wake” my feet up and create an awareness I never had before

There isn’t a day goes by when I don’t wear my Naboso insoles. It’s amazing the difference they make. It’s very difficult to put into words but with the Naboso insoles in your shoes it’s like taking earmuffs off your ears. Your feet seem to “hear” better what’s going on under them despite the fact they have shoes on. Cannot recommend them highly enough. Fantastic product!
