What is Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee?

  • OA is a degenerative condition in which the cartilage structures fail due to excessive loads or injury and are progressively worn away.
  • Mechanical factors, such as mal‐alignment and high torques, drive the wear process.
  • OA often has a silent onset so early detection is difficult limiting corrective interventions.
  • Early detection is a key factor in managing knee OA
