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 osteoarthritis (OA). However, the mechanism by which EKAM may be reduced in the OA knee with this intervention remains unclear. Three hypotheses were tested in this study: (1) The reduction in EKAM during walking with the variable stiffness shoe is associated with a reduction in GRF magnitude and/or (2… CONTINUE READING
