Össur Goes Blue for Arthritis Awareness Month 2017!

Arthritis Awareness Month is coming to an end, but Össur and its employees have been hard at work fundraising and spreading awareness.

Osteoarthritis (OA) affects up to 30.8 million Americans and is the most common cause of disability among adults. Approximately 14 million adults have symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. To learn more about arthritis, please visit the Arthritis Foundation at arthritis.org.

In order to raise awareness of the prevalence, symptoms and available treatment options for osteoarthritis, Össur leveraged social media to spread the word. This effort reached over 2000 people during the month of May! Follow #ÖssurGoesBlue for more!

Not wanting to stop there, Össur Americas employees raised almost $2,000 for the Arthritis Foundation and participated in the Arthritis Walk at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, CA on Sunday, May 21. Over 20 Össur employees came out to show their support (with families and dogs in tow).

Össur’s commitment to improving mobility for the millions affected by knee OA goes beyond supporting the Arthritis Foundation and honoring Arthritis Awareness Month. Our Unloader One® knee brace is the industry standard for unicompartmental OA knee bracing. Based on 18 peer-reviewed studies, Unloader One® is clinically proven to provide pain relief, reduce medication intake, delay surgical intervention and improve quality of life.
