Chicago: Moticon to Help People with Knee Arthritis
A study at Rush University Medical Center is testing whether Moticon sensor insoles can help people with knee arthritis!
The progression of osteoarthritis can be slowed down by putting less strain on the affected joints. By using the Moticon sensor insoles, researches from Rush University are monitoring the patients’ walking in their normal shoes and a pair of flat, flexible shoes that allow for natural foot movements for a six-week period. The patients will also be interacting with the sensor insoles’ data using a smartphone. After six weeks the researches will be able to see if and how participants changed the way they walked and if this led to improvements in their condition.
