Pressure-based auditory feedback to reduce knee moment in subjects with medical knee osteoarthritis

Purpose The knee adduction moment (KAM) is a surrogate of medial compartment load during gait and is a target of conservative therapy for medial knee osteoarthritis (OA). Gait modifications have been shown to achieve KAM reduction, however, there has been limited experience with gait retraining methods outside the laboratory. In a previous study, we demonstrated […]

A novel tool for continuous fracture aftercare – Clinical feasibility and first results of a new telemetric gait analysis insole

Background Weight bearing after lower extremity fractures still remains a highly controversial issue. Even in ankle fractures, themost common lower extremity injury no standard aftercare protocol has been established. Average non weight bearing times range from 0 to 7 weeks, with standardised, radiological healing controls at fixed time intervals. Recent literature calls for patient-adapted aftercare […]
