Detailed Description

The Original Osteoarthritis Knee Brace


If you are suffering from knee stiffness in the morning, knee pain that intensifies when you go up or down the stairs, restricted range of motion or a crunching sensation in the knee, knee weakness, or knee swelling, then you might be suffering from osteoarthritis (OA), the most common form of arthritis. The unloader one knee brace can help, as well as being lightweight and easy to put on and wear under everyday clothing. This brace is also ideal for more active people such as hikers, warehouse/consturction workers, farmers, and athletes. View all of BraceAbility's knee OA braces.


It is unfortunate that a permanent cure for osteoarthritis has yet to be found; fortunately, though, there are ways to manage this illness and the symptoms that come along with it, which are the following: stiffness, limited range of motion, pain, and localized swelling of the knee. The best way to manage osteoarthritis (aside from hot and cold therapy, therapeutic massage, painkillers, and—the most extreme option—surgery) is knee bracing with an osteoarthritic support like the Unloader One OTS.


The Ossur Unloader One OTS Osteoarthritic Knee Brace is a knee support brace specifically designed to help treat mild to severe unicompartmental osteoarthritis as well as a host of other knee conditions. A new design of this Ossur unloader knee brace for arthritis incorporates color-coded buckles, more intuitive strapping, and denser Sensil lining for increased patient comfort. In addition, it features flexible, perforated shells that conform easily to individual anatomy, giving this knee brace an excellent fit, right out of the box. This Ossur Unloader brace also combines a streamlined, flexible upright with Dual Dynamic Force Straps to generate more unloading leverage than any knee unloader brace to date. The proprietary dual Dynamic Forces Strap System provides rapid pain relief and can easily be adjusted by means of simple SmartDosing Dials. Lastly, quick-fit buckles and breathable liners help ensure better patient compliance.

Need one for my other leg too

"

I got a right leg one to keep my driving leg in shape, and it really cut down on the pain and swelling. I tried it on my left leg because it is in bad shape too, but it didn't feel right. Thank you, I've tried others that didn't work half as well.

Used the brace yesterday for a round of 18 holes of golf.

Felt it helped a lot to relieve pain. Did nothing to improve my game!
