Video: Research Overview

Emily Bishop at 2020 AOPA National Assembly


In this recorded presentation, Dr. Emily Bishop discusses research findings on Levitation’s assistive moment and effect on pain at the 2020 AOPA National Assembly. Dr. Bishop, along with other researchers at the McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health (University of Calgary), examined the biomechanical effects of the Levitation Tri-compartment Offloader (TCO) in patients with multi-compartment knee OA. The results of the study showed that wearing a TCO improved knee support during key actions and movements, and significantly reduced pain scores compared to other bracing conditions.
