Osteoarthritis Knee Braces

Osteoarthritis Bracing, commonly called unloader braces, help patients with knee osteoarthritis by reducing pain and providing stability and support. In many cases unloader braces delay the need for total knee replacement surgery and provide an effective alternative to injections. Reduced pain and increased activity through use of the OA knee braces adds up to a better quality of life – speak with you doctor today about prescribing an unloader brace for you.

Unloader One® Plus OTS

Unloader One Plus OTSFor a variety of reasons, many sufferers of OA knee pain are overweight. For these patients, containing excess soft tissue is essential if they are to be braced effectively and comfortably. That’s why our new Unloader One Plus model is equipped with a wider thigh strap than the standard version, plus a gastroc strap that helps secure the brace in place.

Extra large support

Bigger legs require bigger support. So, for the new Unloader One Plus model, we included a sturdier upright with an Adjustable Dynamic Joint that provides clinicians with additional leverage for optimal pain management. Multiple, peer-reviewed clinical and biomechanical studies have proven the efficacy of this technology.
