BEST SHOE DESIGN FOR KNEE PAIN

Women have twice as many knee replacements as men. However, it took the original research of Harvard Medical School graduate Dr. Casey Kerrigan to suggest a link between footwear and knee arthritis. The conclusion – high-heeled shoes abnormally increase knee joint torques by 23% and the typical running shoe increases these same knee joint torques by a whopping 38% during running compared to barefoot. Being perfectly flat in all directions, OESH Shoes work as a synchronized spring, following a design based on Dr. Kerrigan’s research discoveries. OESH gently load and unload forces when joint torques detrimental to the knee are at their peak.

WORLD-WIDE ACCLAIM

Dr. Kerrigan’s 1998 study was broadcast on all the major news outlets around the world and was the subject of this ABC 20/20 segment.

OESH SHOES HAVE FEATURES THAT EFFECTIVELY MINIMIZE JOINT TORQUES AND LOADING THROUGH THE KNEE.

Being perfectly flat in all directions, the OESH Sole works as a spring, loading and unloading in synch with when joint torques are at their peak.

DR. KERRIGAN'S PAPER CAME AS A SHOCK TO MANY. FOR YEARS, ATHLETIC, COMFORT AND ``HEALTHY`` SHOE COMPANIES HAVE BEEN MAKING SHOES WITH ELEVATED CUSHIONED HEELS.

shoes for knee pain

Knee pain and knee osteoarthritis is very common. It causes more disability with respect to mobility than any other singular disease in the elderly. But women suffer from it nearly twice as often as men and undergo nearly twice as many knee replacements. Dr. Kerrigan believes the difference in shoes we wear explains much of this gender difference. Your dress shoes and “comfort” shoes have substantial heels on them – more so than a typical men’s dress shoe – even if you don’t think of them as “high heels.” Then you put on running shoes, which still have (hidden) high heels and other “support” type features that are typically exaggerated in women’s athletic and comfort shoes, which further increase knee joint torques. Meaning, that all day long, your knees are placed under abnormally increased stress.

READY FOR A MORE HEALTHY SHOE?

Imagine, if you have knee pain, wearing shoes that are uniquely designed to minimize loads on your knee joint. Dr. Kerrigan’s published research on human movement and the effects on the body of high-heels and other common features in women’s shoes became the scientific foundation of a better shoe design, now found exclusively in OESH footwear.
