Shoe Inserts for Treating Osteoarthritis of the Knee
This trial will test shoe inserts for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis, the most common form of knee arthritis. Those with disease on the inner (medial) aspect of the knee will be studied.

A SYNOVIAL CYST located in the back of the knee, in the popliteal space arising from the semimembranous bursa or the knee joint.
This trial will assess the ability of shoe inserts to relieve pain and disability in people with knee osteoarthritis (OA) in the inner (medial) aspect of the knee.
The overall objective of this 3-year project is to determine whether the provision of realignment therapy in patients with medial knee osteoarthritis (OA) relieves knee pain and improves f...
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease and is the most common form of arthritis. This study will evaluate the effectiveness of customized shoe inserts in controlling and relieving...
It is hypothesised that laterally wedged insoles will result in reduced knee pain and cartilage volume loss after 12 months of wear, compared to control insoles. People with symptomatic kn...
The five-year goal of this project is to investigate the effect of in-shoe wedged orthoses on lower extremity function in patients with knee osteoarthritis. In general, our aims address t...
The management of knee osteoarthritis includes the use of wedged shoe insoles to unload the affected knee compartment. Although the biomechanical effects of shoe insoles on the knee joint are known an...
Variable stiffness shoes that have a stiffer lateral than medial sole may reduce the external knee adduction moment (EKAM) and pain during walking in patients with medial compartment knee osteoarthrit...
Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee is associated with alterations in gait. As an alternative to force plates, instrumented force shoes (IFSs) can be used to measure ground reaction forces. This study eva...
OBJECTIVE: Aseptic loosening of artificial knee joints induced by wear particles from a tibial polyethylene (PE) insert is a serious problem limiting their longevity. This study investigated the effec...
Since footwear is commonly used every day, its influence on knee joint loading and thereby on the development and progression of osteoarthritis may be crucial. So far the influence of footwear has bee...
