How insoles reduce pressure on knee joints while doing various activities

Active people will understand that different movements place various levels of strain on the knee joints. The knees will take force from both above and below. A person’s total body weight will impact the downward load, and the surface that the feet are walking on (along with the activity being performed) will impact knee pressure from below. Although studies use various techniques and it is difficult to record accurately, the studies carried out to date suggest that significant pressure is applied to the knee during everyday activities such as walking, running and exercise. Forces transmitted across the knee joint during normal walking range between 2 and 3 times body weight. This is in part due to the kinetics of acceleration,...
