Movement Strategies adopted by individuals with medial knee OA in response to pressure-based auditory feedback gait reraining

Purpose

Structural progression of medial knee osteoarthritis (OA) is associated with an increased knee adduction moment (KAM), a surrogate measure of the compartmental knee loads. The KAM is thus a target for mechanical intervention. Based on real-time pressure data and individualized training thresholds, the use of plantar pressure-based auditory feedback to shift weight medially was found to reduce the KAM in individuals with medial knee OA. However, its potential mechanisms remain unclear. Thus, this study aimed to elucidate movement strategies adopted by individuals with medial knee OA in response to pressure-based feedback gait retraining and compare movement strategies of substantial and partial responders of the intervention.

Wireless Data Transmission


The wireless data transmission from OpenGo Sensor Insoles to the mobile device uses intelligent handshake technology to avoid the loss of data packages, even when the connection quality is below 100 %.

Typical wireless range of the Bluetooth Low Energy connection in indoor settings is ≥ 10 m, in in-field settings up to 20 m.
