Does Your Patient Have Osteoarthritis of the Knee?
Living with knee pain can be hard. Simple activities become difficult. Before recommending knee replacement or injections, some patients may benefit from a conservative approach like AposHealth.
What is AposHealth?
AposHealth uses a personalized foot-worn device to offload pressure from joints in the lower extremities and low back — leading to improved neuromuscular control, coordination and gait.
The AposHealth foot-worn device is FDA-cleared for treating knee osteoarthritis, to help temporarily reduce knee pain and improve lower extremity function during activities of daily living. It is also a non-FDA cleared wellness device which can improve quality of life in patients with other gait-related conditions such as chronic low back and hip pain.
The AposHealth Program
A specially trained AposHealth clinician assesses the patient’s condition and gait with the help of a computerized walking analysis. Based on the results, the clinician custom-calibrates the AposHealth foot-worn device.
The patient will wear the AposHealth device while going about their regular activities, generally for about an hour a day.
AposHealth Delivers Proven Results
