- Change in Knee adduction moment [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 3 months ]
- Change in Knee pain [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 3 months ]A 20-cm visual analog scale (0-100) is used to assess pain.
- Change in Spatiotemporal gait parameters [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 3 months ]Test of the gait symmetry with the gait phase duration and step length.
- Change in Gait velocity [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 3 months ]
- Change in Knee adduction angle [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 3 months ]
- Change in Knee brace comfort [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 3 months ]A 20-cm visual analog scale (0-100) is used to assess comfort.
