Medial compartment knee osteoarthritis (OA) plagues a large portion of the population . The disease process is often initiated by changes in knee joint motions and loads, such as following anterior cruciate ligament or meniscal injury. Since overloading of the medial compartment in particular has been hypothesized to play a critical role, many treatment approaches have made reduction of medial contact force during gait their primary target.
