AposHealth®’s 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 help patients live well with other gait-related conditions such as chronic low back and hip pain.
By improving body mechanics and muscular coordination, AposHealth® has shown in clinical research that patients can achieve significant pain relief as well as an improvement in their daily physical function.
