A new footwear collection called Flex-OA has just been introduced by Dr. Comfort, a global provider of therapeutic footwear. The patented new footwear design was based on clinical research to help reduce the load on the knees, a major cause of knee pain associated with osteoarthritis or OA. Studies conducted by rheumatology experts at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, indicate that people who wear the shoes experience an average knee load reduction of 20 percent. The studies also include evidence suggesting the patented design can actually help achieve beneficial gait alterations that may help reduce pain and slow the progression of osteoarthritis.
