Unique roller shoes help fight arthritis pain

May 23, 2007

Assaf Harofeh Medical Center in Tel Aviv has developed unique footwear, which helps relieve the pain of arthritis patients.

These are fabric boots with two large rubber spheres in the sole, one at the front, and one under the heel, which can move in different directions. This technique has the ability to adjust to suit individual’s needs.

Study shows that arthritis patients who used these shoes for around two months, experienced significantly less pain.

Researchers beamed that several patients had improved so much that they ditch surgery plans.

"This is an interesting development as knee osteoarthritis is one of the more common types of arthritis, and historically has not been particularly well treated except in its later stages with joint replacement," a spokeswoman for the Arthritis Research Campaign says.

Statistics reveal that more than 550,000 men and women have moderate to severe osteoarthritis of the knee and around 30,000 knee replacements take place in Britain.

This product will soon be widely available in the UK and the US.

Developers, researchers and other experts are now praying and hoping that this shoe gives similar positive results. If it is successful, this will be considered as one of the most important steps to cure arthritis
