Cool Bad Knee Question

My sister has very bad Knees, and at present she's a poor candidate for Joint Replacement.

The Doctor that she works for, told her that Every Pound that she lost would take Three Pounds of Stress off her Knees.

Can this possibly be correct?

I can see that if she were Duck Walking, doing really Deep Lunges, Sprints—Whatever.

She can barely walk and she rarely bends her Knee even 15 degrees when walking...

{With a Cane and Very Slowly, I might add.}

The leverage/multiplying factor doesn't seem to be there.

We're just curious.

Anyone?
