How do Unloader Knee Braces Work?
A common cause of knee pain is osteoarthritis (OA), the slow deterioration of cartilage between the joints. For patients suffering from osteoarthritis, Unloader knee braces are designed to unload the affected, painful side of the knee using a 3-Point Leverage System.
The thigh and calf shells account for two points of leverage, while the Dynamic Force Strap (the diagonal strap above the knee) provides the third. This system is designed to "unload" the pressure from the affected area.
HOW DOES UNLOADER HIP WORK?
Unloader Hip is designed to reduce load on the affected joint surface through rotation and abduction of the femoral head. The brace is designed to optimize Hip OA treatment. With its breathable materials and integrated elastic sections, Unloader Hip provides a comfortable and snug fit - allowing the brace to be worn discreetly under clothing. Watch how »
