The usefulness of knee kinesiography in treating arthritis of the knee in primary care: a randomized controlled trial

On Friday, May 24, 2019, the CRCHUM Conferences will host Nicola Hagemeister, researcher at the CRCHUM and associate professor in the departement of surgery at the Université de Montréal.

Abstract

According to general practitioners, a major clinical shortcoming in the management of patients with arthritis of the knee is the lack of validated tools to help them make decisions about treating their patients. The conference presents a major study involving 446 patients that aims to determine the impact of adding to current medical care a knee kinesiography exam, a technology developed in Quebec that makes it possible to evaluate biomechanical risk factors related to arthritis progression. We will present the clinical results of this six-month randomized comparative trial and will elaborate on strategies for knowledge transfer to clinical settings and patients.

This conference will be presented in French.
