Bracing Options for Prosthetics Patients

Össur supports a wholistic approach to patient care with bracing options for the contralateral limb, or over the socket. A specific selection of orthoses includes Unloaders (for OA), as well as AFOs. Prescription for prosthetics patients is now easier than ever with often the ability to incorporate bracing into funding applications.

Causes of Knee OA in Unilateral Amputees
