Dermott Brereton testimonial

“I wear the brace when I go on longer walks and play golf and have found that it really reduces the strain and pain in my knee,” he says. “It also gives me a sense of security and protection over that joint. The overall positive effect the brace has had on my life has been very positive.”

Tony's Story

After wearing the Unloader FIT ®* knee brace, Tony felt the benefits.

Meet Tony – an active man whose cartilage was damaged after a skiing accident. His knee developed osteoarthritis over time, limiting him from taking part in family activities and maintaining his active lifestyle. After wearing the Unloader FIT ®* knee brace, Tony felt the benefits. He is now able to play a full round of golf and participate in activities with his family.

*Unloader FIT ® has upgraded to Unloader One Lite

Some years ago I found out that I had Osteoarthritis in my left hip, causing me ongoing pain during exercise. I hadn’t tried anything like a brace in the past, but since my fitting with Simon from Össur in 2018, the Unloader Hip, has enabled me to continue my sports and other passions to a high degree without the same pain. I was on the verge of quitting tennis, but I particularly like the support from the brace and its ability to straighten me up without putting too much stress on my left side during sport; for tennis and golf, this is very good. The Unloader Hip has allowed me to keep going and kept me in a physical and mental positive state. I will eventually require a hip replacement operation, but in the meantime the Unloader has bought me time and comfort. I will likely use it after my operation for continued support and comfort. Many thanks to Össur and Simon Boyd for his consultation, fitting and ongoing service.

Paul Tolcon,

Unloader Hip user

I walked 96 km along trails of intense ups and downs under the most extreme underfoot conditions. It was tough that’s for sure! However, without the braces I don't think there’d be a chance I would have completed the trek, as they helped my knees incredibly. Prior to the trek, going about my usual daily activities, the braces helped to reduce my knee pain. Now that I’m home again, it’s a relief to get through all my normal activities comfortably. The overall effect the braces have had on my lifestyle has been amazing.

I am loving the brace it has reduced my pain, and given me more movement, I am able to do things I haven't done in a long time

I walk a lot on using stairs at both work and home. I was really struggling, and the brace has taken the edge off. I travel well with it. I have 4 young active kids, I need to keep up with them, and the brace reduces the stabbing pain, which allows me to move around, kick a ball and be active. I played indoor cricket for about 25 years, I stopped playing 1 year ago, however I have now started filling in, which was not able to do at one point because of my knee pain.

Both my knees are stuffed. I bought one for each knee and they really do work. I wear mine at work all day. I wear them everywhere. I'm much more active now. I would recommend them to anyone.

I can't speak for everyone's experience as everyone has different problems with their knees but it made a huge difference to me while I had it on, it made my leg feel normal again.

My Unloader brace has helped reduced the pain in my knee, giving me the ability to train harder and be more active in my day to day. I work out regularly and train others as well, including weight lifting and kickboxing, and the brace has really helped with these activities for me.

When my doctor advised me at 41 that I had high grade Chondromalacia to just stop running forever I wasn’t prepared to accept his advice. The only options at my age were either stop running or an injection that costs $600 a shot and could possibly give some pain relief and depending on how the body reacted to the injection how long the might be (approx. 6months) and I am too young for knee replacement. After finding Össur and having been fitted with an Unloader knee brace, I have been able to continue as if I had 2 good knees. The braces are comfortable and unobtrusive, and I can wear them for long periods of time while working or playing sport
