Apos® for ankles & feet
Ankle pain explained
When we walk, the foot and ankle bear the full weight of our bodies. Not surprisingly, they are prone to injury. When not addressed sufficiently, injuries such as ankle sprains can result in long-term pain and reduced function.
Apos® and ankle pain
Apos® is designed to help you live better by working with the body’s natural biomechanics.
The non-invasive Apos® device is used for about one hour a day, and works around your schedule – you can wear it at home, at work or outside. Specially customized for each patient, it is designed to redistribute the weight with minimal effort on your part.
Apos® is FDA-cleared for treating knee osteoarthritis and can be for general wellness to support conditions of the hips and lower back.
