Gel Melbourne OA White
$180.00 $135.00
Some time ago, ASICS Oceania ventured into a collaborative research project with the University of Melbourne* to see if a shoe could be designed to help those suffering from knee osteoarthritis (OA) or those at risk of the disease. While most sports and walking shoes are made to resist the inward roll or over-pronation at the foot, this new GEL-Melbourne OA is the opposite and encourages the foot to roll inwards. This is an ideal shoe for both everyday wear and leisure activities and has been designed specifically for:

- People with knee osteoarthritis

- Those at risk of developing knee osteoarthritis: including people who are overweight, aged over 50 years or who have a past history of knee injury.

Given its special design features, it is not recommended for people with 'knock knees'.


*Research supported by an Australian Research Council Linkage grant with ASICS Oceania as the industry partner.
