Not only do we test each production batch of TerraMater Footwear® Material, but we also test and validate every manufacturing run of Get Grounded Footwear™.
Above: An Earthing Connection tester, which is used to verify the continuity of Earthing products, puts a pair of our Groundals® to the test. A green light confirms Get Grounded Footwear™ is performing properly, and ready to reconnect you to the Earth!

We did an experiment to show the benefits of Grounding a living organism. The results were absolutely amazing and the visuals above speak for themselves!
Above: We used 3 identical conductive metal bowls and placed each on top of a properly connected Earthing mat. We then placed 3 bunches of West Indian Jasmine flowers from the same bush in each bowl with an equal amount of water.
From left to right (see the images above): The first bunch of flowers is insulated using a plastic container lid, which stops the flow of electrons from the Earthing mat. The second bunch of flowers is placed directly on the Earthing mat, which allows the flow of electrons. The third bunch of flowers is placed on a pair of Get Grounded Footwear™ which is then placed on top of the Earthing mat.
Each of the flowers was left untouched for 8 days in normal sunlight, with no added water or interference. You can clearly see the benefits of being grounded and that the insulated bunch of flowers wilted much quicker than the grounded, or earthed, bunches of flowers.
In conclusion, we clearly demonstrate that Get Grounded Footwear™ allows the flow of electrons to pass through the footbed and into the body to help reduce the free radicals created by the environment. Does this show that Grounding can help slow the aging process???
Get Grounded Footwear requires a Grounded surface in order to transfer the Earth’s energy to your body. Unlike Earthing/Grounding sheet and mats, which are attached to a grounded source (the third prong of an outlet or directly to the surface of the Earth using a rod), our shoes simply need physical contact with a natural Grounded/conductive surface. Typically, most building materials insulate and will not allow for the transfer of the Earth surface energy. This is also true with regards to your bare feet.
Good grounding surfaces include:Sand (beach)Grass (preferably moist)

Although cement and concrete are two different materials, in the context of Grounding they are interchangeable. So that means standard city or neighborhood sidewalks will Ground you perfectly. The only time cement or concrete will not Ground you is if they have been sealed in some way, usually painted or coated with some form of water sealant. Often people are surprised to find that wood flooring is also an insulator; this is due to the fact that the wood is dead, dry, and mostly likely has been treated.
