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 (U.S. Patent Number US7954261) 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, Ill., 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.
Flex-OA shoes for men include styles: GARY Flex OA in colors black or grey or ROY Flex OA in colors Black or Brown.
Flex-OA shoes for women include styles: AMY Flex OA in colors black or taupe or SANDY Flex OA in colors Blue or Grey.
