Helping Those Who Sacrifice For Us

Community Need

Nurses, doctors, surgeons, speech pathologists, physician's assistants, custodians, and many many more healthcare facility employees have been showing up at our hospitals and clinics in the midst of the greatest health crisis our lives. They show up to take care of us when we are at our most vulnerable despite the danger they put themselves in every day. And while their aches and pains from standing on hard floors all day are not new; they are being pushed to new levels of stress, exhaustion, and sacrifice. At Protalus we have been supporting our employees to work from home as much as possible but we realized we could do more for our local community. 


Special Delivery

Protalus is located in West Linn, near Portland, Oregon. This past week Protalus donated over six hundred pairs of our high quality insoles directly to three local hospitals so that those who are showing up for us can get a little bit of relief themselves. Ally Chan, who is part of the e-commerce team at Protalus, delivered the insoles to Legacy Emanuel Hospital, OHSU/Doernbecher Children's Hospital, and Kaiser Permanente Sunnyside.

While we know that this is nothing compared to the work that the staff at these facilities is doing, we hope that it can be a gesture of thanks and that we can, in some small way, relieve a few of those aches they battle. To every single person, every delivery driver, every electrician, every EMT, mechanic, cook, care giver, and to all the others showing up at risk to themselves to get us through this difficult time, thank you.

If you’re looking to move to a city that’s easily walkable, a walk score is an important metric to pay attention to. It takes into account the proximity of business areas to residential areas as well as the infrastructure available in the city to accommodate pedestrians. Walk Score ranks major US cities by walkability; below is a list of the top ten walkable cities in the US.

The Benefits Of Insoles For Work Boots

by Anna Heston • April 10, 2020

Standing and walking on hard surfaces for long periods of time can lead to injuries, discomfort, and fatigue. That’s why a lot of people turn to safety shoes and work boots to provide comfort and support. A pair of work boots is the only thing that stands between workers’ feet and hard surfaces, so workers are not only relying on their boots for protection and safety, but for physical support as well.
