The problem with walking abnormalities

Walking abnormalities can make simple activities such as walking, sitting and climbing stairs difficult and frustrating.

Without addressing them properly, the problems can tend to get worse, harming one’s posture and ability to carry oneself in a healthy way.

To compensate, the body can develop movement patterns such as limping and shortened strides that can further exacerbate the problem.

The problem with knee, hip, ankle & lower back conditions

Living with pain is not easy. Neither is losing the ability to function normally. Conditions of the knee, lower-back, hip, and ankle, make simple activities such as walking, sitting and climbing stairs painful and frustrating.

Living with pain is not easy. Neither is losing the ability to function normally. Conditions of the knee, lower-back, hip, and ankle, make simple activities such as walking, sitting and climbing stairs painful and frustrating.

Without proper treatment, these conditions often tend to get worse, harming your posture and your ability to carry yourself in a healthy way.

To compensate, your body becomes dysfunctional, your muscles move in an abnormal fashion, your walking patterns become misaligned and the pressure on the affected joints increases, causing even more pain – a vicious cycle. Medications get involved. Surgery may already be on the cards. However, there is a way out…

How
AposHealth®
works

Using a personalized footworn device AposHealth® improves:
  • Biomechanics – redistributing pressure away from the affected areas and temporarily reducing knee pain42
  • Neuromuscular systems – retraining the muscles45, and correcting the abnormal gait patterns, even when not actively wearing the device42
This dual-action process is what makes it possible to significantly improve one’s gait (walking mechanics).

How
AposHealth®
is unique

AposHealth® helps people with knee, lower back and hip pain live well by improving their gait42 (walking mechanics) and quality of life43. This is done by:

  • Redistributing the weight on the painful areas
  • Re-educating the muscles, and ultimately correcting the walking patterns

This dual-action process is what makes it possible to improve function and live better with painful conditions without invasive procedures.

Clinically proven results

A 2020 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that 92% of patients with knee osteoarthritis who were treated with AposHealth® reported more than a 30% reduction in pain while 83% reported more than a 50% reduction in pain42.

Clinical studies have also shown improvement in function42 and quality of life24,43, as well as a significant reduction in pain medication use among patients with chronic knee pain3. According to a patient satisfaction survey, 98% of patients said that they would recommend AposHealth® to friends and family1.

Full plan and pricing

The AposHealth® program includes ongoing clinician care for a full year as well as cutting edge technology. Select insurance companies cover the costs of the program and in some cases, co-pay and deductibles may be included. In case you are not covered by insurance you can start AposHealth® with a self-paid option.

AposHealth® is available through a network of selected private physical therapy and multidisciplinary clinics that are qualified to deliver AposHealth®. The program is administered and monitored by specially trained AposHealth® clinicians.

The reason AposHealth® has helped so many people is that it is personalized to each one’s specific needs. The process begins with a full, in-depth clinical consultation of the patient’s problem joints, pain levels and day-to-day restrictions. This evaluation forms the basis of a personalized one-hour-a-day treatment program, which blends effortlessly into the patient’s daily life.

The AposHealth® program includes a personally-adjusted, footworn, biomechanical device that includes Pertupods – convex sole attachments under your forefoot and heel. Your clinician selects and positions the most suitable Pertupods to distribute pressure away from the painful areas of your joints and retrain your muscles.

AposHealth®’s unique approach is supported by the AposIQ unit, which combines innovative technology, data science and over a decade of experience in gait modification to determine the optimal way to adjust patients’ gaits over time.
