AposTherapy New York
Apos Medical and Sports Technologies Ltd. was founded in 2004 by medical doctors coming from the fields of Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine following 10 years of research.
The company successfully developed and commercialized AposTherapy – an innovative medical technology with applications in orthopaedics, neurology and paediatrics, with our current focus being knee osteoarthritis (OA) and other conditions within orthopaedics.
10% of the population of OECD countries suffer from Knee OA making it the 5th leading cause of disability burden worldwide.
There is a massive gap in the current pathway of care between pain killers and total knee replacements. Utilizing a proprietary biomechanical foot-worn device this innovative therapy uniquely combines concurrently two essential therapeutic actions
First by bringing the body to a proper alignment thereby relieving pain. Second by promoting micro-instability as the patient walks for about an hour a day within their daily routine to re-educate muscles that control the joints, instilling optimal patterns of motion for improved function.
AposTherapists, specially trained physical therapists, administer the treatment and develop a fully personalized program based on complete scientific assessment including computerized gait analysis. Continuous patient monitoring and re-calibration of the device at regular follow-ups, provide optimal therapy outcomes.
