What is an Unloader Brace?
Unloader Knee Braces: Unloader Knee Orthoses are similar to functional knee braces except they utilize multiple force systems to reduce pressures on the medial (inside) or lateral (outside) compartment of the osteoarthritic knee. They often have a dial to fine-tune the amount of offloading applied. They are beneficial for reducing bone on bone rubbing and help provide support for daily activity. The orthosis facilitates increased patient activity and replaces or delays surgery. We have multiple options available in order to find the right orthosis design for you or your patient.
