Lightweight, comfortable and easy to get on and off, the new one Unloader knee brace is the ultimate in pain relief for osteoarthritis (OA) sufferers. New: The Unloader brace is now available as an off-the-shelf (without cover) brace. Drawing on twenty years of clinical studies and user feedback, Orthomen has completely redesigned the legendary Unloader brace, incorporating new technologies for unrivalled performance. Biomechanical understanding and materials expertise have contributed to a holistic approach that addresses the pain and immobility caused by OA. The Unloader brace has 30-50% more unloading power than the original Unloader, with only HALF the weight. This low profile device has a new kind of breathable padding coated with silicone that virtually eliminates migration (slipping or rotation). Not one, but two Dynamic Force Straps work in conjunction with an easy-to-adjust control system which allows patients to better manage their knee pain. The buckle and strapping design makes it easier to apply and remove the brace, repeatedly achieving a snug fit without having to adjust it. Even patients with arthritic hands will find the brace easier to apply.
