Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint condition characterized by the gradual breakdown of cartilage within the knee joint, resulting in pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.
Affecting millions of people worldwide (OA) is a prevalent and debilitating condition. It occurs when the cartilage that cushions the knee joint gradually wears away, causing the bones to rub against each other. This friction leads to pain, inflammation, stiffness, and a decreased range of motion.
The LEVER system allows users to walk or run with reduced impact on their joints, making it an excellent tool for those with knee OA who are looking to maintain or improve their fitness levels while minimizing pain and discomfort.
