Researchers at Griffith University in Queensland, Australia got the idea over a cup of coffee, while watching a young woman stumble past them in heels. “She looked quite uncomfortable and unstable,” Dr. Neil J. Cronin, a postdoctoral researcher at the university’s musculoskeletal research program, told The New York Times. “We began to consider what might be happening at the muscle and tendon level.”
