The Solution to Understanding Arthritis
Lies in Engineering:

Engineering Model:

Stabilize the Foundation to support
the superstructure.

BioEngineering Model:

Stabilize the Foot to Ground plat-
form to eliminate Arthritis in
the weight bearing joints.

Three clinical studies have been
published demonstrating the
effectiveness of this approach:

[1] 1988: 97 cases - Pelvic Tilts [JMPT]
[2] 1994: 108 cases - Arthritic knee pain [AJPM]
[3] 1995: 208 cases - Arthritic back pain [AJPM]
