The non-invasive AposHealth® 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.
The AposHealth® 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 musculoskeletal conditions such as chronic low back and hip pain.
