AposTherapy offers a new approach for the treatment and management of knee conditions based on the latest scientific evidence regarding the central role biomechanics plays in the pathophysiology of knee OA and other knee pathologies. By combining optimal body alignment with controlled perturbation while walking as part of daily routine, AposTherapy restores neuromuscular control, instilling desirable patterns of motion for significant reduction in pain, and improvement in function and quality of life.

During your initial consultation at an AposTherapy Centre your AposTherapist, a specially trained physiotherapist, will conduct a clinical evaluation, including pain, function and quality of life questionnaires, in order to develop a personalised therapy programme that responds to your unique treatment needs. Utilising state-of-the-art computerised equipment, we obtain an in-depth analysis of your: Step length (knee pain can cause shorter steps); load distribution on each leg (less weight tends to be placed on an injured leg); walking velocity (injuries often make people walk slower); and gait symmetry (which can assess any limping). This gives the AposTherapist a clearer picture of how the way you move may be causing your pain, and how AposTherapy can provide a long-term solution to treat it. Based on the evaluation you’ll receive your personally-calibrated foot-worn biomechanical system to help relieve pressure from your knee, and re-train the muscular system around the joint. close

AposTherapy blends into your everyday life, for around an hour a day, making treatment easy to comply with for the best results. AposTherapy transforms your ordinary daily routine into a positive, highly effective rehabilitation process. You decide the time and place, fitting therapy in with your lifestyle, as opposed to having to fit your life around therapy. As you continue with your everyday routine activities such as walking from room to room and getting up from a chair, while wearing your biomechanical system, your body is learning, without you even noticing it, correct movement patterns as the joints perform hundreds of repetitions. With every step, in your own environment and following your typical daily schedule, AposTherapy is instilling optimal walking patterns for long term pain relief and improved mobility. close

AposTherapy is a dynamic treatment, constantly appraised and adjusted to ensure optimal success throughout your pathway of care. In addition to follow-up consultations scheduled by the Patient Liaison Centre, your AposTherapist regularly initiates phone check-ups to personally monitor your progress more closely. During follow-up consultations at the AposTherapy Centre your therapy programme is reassessed. Your AposTherapist will conduct several examinations similar to those performed during the initial consultation, such as repeating the computerised gait analysis test, as well as pain, function and quality of life assessments to provide an objective and subjective reflection of your progress. Throughout the process, wherever necessary your biomechanical system is adjusted and your personalised therapy programme updated to ensure you reach your treatment goals. close

Independent surveys in the UK show that 85% of AposTherapy patients experience pain reduction following treatment, most of them in just over a month. In some cases patients tell us their pain relief is immediate during their very first consultation. With AposTherapy, every step you take with the system relieves the stress on your painful joints. In parallel, your muscles are trained to become more synchronised so that they correctly control your movements, even when you are not using the device. Treatment has minimal interruption to daily life and maximum rehabilitation. In fact, you won’t feel like you’re working your muscles at all. You’ll just stop noticing the pain so you can move with confidence and be yourself again. close
