D. Riva and his research group have studied foot interaction with the ground and human interaction with gravity for the last 20 years.
They have discovered that single stance stability based on proprioceptive control is a key indicator of safety and effectiveness of human movements.
Based on this discovery, they have developed a system and expert methodology (Riva Method) that unlocks the power of proprioceptive training.
Specific tests define the proprioceptive profile and establish baselines
High-frequency proprioceptive training is selected based on the proprioceptive analysis
High-density and HF proprioceptive training improve the endurance of proprioceptive control and stimulate structural adaptation of ligaments, joint capsules and tendons
Continuous monitoring of key indicators leads to optimization of proprioceptive training
