Do you have osteoarthritis of your ankle? If so, we want to hear from you

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common condition affecting thousands of New Zealanders.

We are currently undertaking research exploring problems with balance and walking in people with ankle OA, and whether an ankle brace can help these problems. Participants will attend a single testing session of 1-2 hours at AUT’s North Shore Campus.

It is hoped that findings from this research will help us better understand balance and walking problems in people with ankle OA and give us new ideas about how best to treat these.

To participate in this study you must be over 18 years of age, have been told by your doctor that you have ankle OA, and currently live/be able to travel to Auckland.

For more detailed information or to contribute to this study please contact Kendyl Roodt on 027 951 1494 or email kenkat@netz.co.nz

Do you have osteoarthritis of your hand? If so, we want to hear from you

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common condition affecting thousands of New Zealanders.

We are currently undertaking research exploring the effectiveness of two different types of strengthening exercises for the treatment of hand OA, including the ability of exercise to reduce joint pain and improve a person’s ability to perform important activities of daily living.

It is hoped that findings from this research will inform the design of better treatments for hand OA.

To participate in this study you must be over 18 years of age, have been told by your doctor that you have hand OA, had hand pain for 3 months or longer and currently live in Auckland.

For more detailed information or to contribute to this study please contact Nico Magni on 09 921 9999 ext6581 or email nico.magni@aut.ac.nz
