Motion-control footwear features fail to decrease knee adduction moment

By Emily Delzell Two studies e-published in October found medial arch supports and motion control shoes have no significant effect on knee adduction moment (KAM), regarded as a surrogate measure of medial knee compression. Researchers from University of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia, evaluated the immediate effects of medial arch supports on medial knee joint loads (KAM and knee adduction angular [KAA] impulse) and knee pain during walking in people with medial knee osteoarthritis (OA)
