With an ageing population and increased trend to delay retirement worldwide, the number of people in the workforce affected by knee osteoarthritis will increase(1). There is a paucity of research examining the burden of work disability among people with knee osteoarthritis(2). Previous population and patient-based surveys have mostly been limited to evaluating absenteeism and have all required lengthy recall periods(2).
