Dr Narelle Wyndow has extensive experience with arthritis and knees. Her PhD specialty was the use of foot orthotics to prevent ACL and knee problems. She is looking for Hobart participants for this national study, which assesses the health of people's knees. Narelle Wyndow will utilize appropriate footwear orthotics designed to your needs, to better support your knee function. She is gathering important data to ensure greater foot health for all.
