Inability or unwillingness to wear study shoes for at least 6 hours/day for 6 days/week
Knee flexion contracture of > 15 degrees or inability to ambulate without assistance.
Presence of clinically significant OA of the hip or ankle or pain greater than 20 mm at these sites (WOMAC).
> 3 degrees valgus or >12 degrees varus deformity of either knee, defined by the mechanical axis (hip-knee angle).
Predominant lateral compartment OA, defined as narrowing of the lateral joint space in excess of the narrowing of the medial joint space in either the index or the contralateral knee.
Concurrent systemic inflammatory arthropathy,
Prior knee or hip arthroplasty, or surgical arthroscopy of either knee within previous 3 months or history of fracture of either lower extremity within 6 months of study entry.
