During your initial evaluation, AposTherapy Certified Physical Therapists use a computerized gait analysis to study your walking patterns (identifying weakness or misalignment). If you are a candidate, the foot-worn device will be calibrated to your specific needs. Youíll take the AposTherapy device home with instructions from your Certified Physical Therapist as to how long you should be wearing them each day.
Youíll wear the AposTherapy foot-worn device around the house or at work generally about an hour each day (depending on your physical therapistís assessment). Itís as simple as putting the shoes on for an hour after work while youíre walking around the house or cooking a meal. The device comes with a convenient carrying bag so you can easily bring them with you to use around the office.
To optimize your results and re-calibrate the device as necessary, your AposTherapy Certified Physical Therapist will ask you to visit their office about five more times over the course of a 12 month period. This allows your physical therapist to take you through the computerized gait analysis again to compare your reports and examine your progress. The follow-up visits also give your physical therapist the opportunity to alter or change the pertupods on the bottom of the mounting rail for various levels of convexity, height and more.
When used over time, AposTherapy is designed to help you better manage your knee discomfort, as part of a healthy lifestyle. AposTherapy can help you get back to doing the things you love. By living a healthy lifestyle you may be able to reduce the impact of osteoarthritis and other chronic conditions that cause knee discomfort.
