An Excellent Knee Brace for Osteoarthritis
Patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis have to endure grueling hours of joint pain. A lot of these patients choose to treat their arthritis through injections, oral painkillers, or perhaps the most extreme option—knee surgery.
While these approaches can effectively help alleviate the suffering associated with osteoarthritis of the knee, these treatment options, unfortunately, can also have serious drawbacks. Good thing that there's a far more effective solution for knee arthritis—knee bracing.
The Ossur Unloader Express knee osteoarthritis brace is a cost-effective, easy-to-fit option for those less-active patients who are suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee. Using Ossur's proven 3-Point Leverage System, the Express knee support combines an Adjustable Dynamic Joint with a Dynamic Force Strap to unload the affected compartment, thereby reducing pain.
Features of the Ossur Unloader Express Osteoarthritis Knee Brace:
- A single upright on the affected side that combines with the Dynamic Force Strap to create a 3-Point Leverage System
- One of the few knee braces for arthritis featuring an Adjustable Dynamic Joint (ADJ) that allows the clinician to easily control the varus or valgus force for optimal pain management
- Adjustable Tibial Strap (ATS) that captures the tibia and allows adjustments in hinge depth for a more customized fit
- Combining a CoolFlex sleeve with a semi-rigid frame, the Express arthritic knee support offers a unique variation on the Unloader theme
- Removable, washable sleeve that allows for easy and accurate knee brace placement
The Express Ossur Unloader Knee Brace is ideal for
- Mild to severe unicompartmental osteoarthritis
- Mild cognitive and/or manual dexterity deficiencies
- Low activities of daily living
- All non-contact activities
