Unloader One X Stories

Dr Klaus Vedder, Orthopaedic Surgeon

“I’ve been using the Unloader One X for nearly a year and I’m happy to say that I have been able to continue doing all the activities I enjoy. In fact, I went to Nepal in September 2019 as planned. It involved three weeks of trekking between 4-8 hours per day carrying a 13kg backpack. I can say that it was fantastic trekking and a great experience. To realise dreams beyond the ordinary…that’s my #lifewithoutlimitations.”

Unloader Hip Stories


Paul Tolcon

"Some years ago I found out that I had Osteoarthritis in my left hip, causing me ongoing pain during exercise. I hadn’t tried anything like a brace in the past, but since my fitting with Simon from Össur in 2018, the Unloader Hip, has enabled me to continue my sports and other passions to a high degree without the same pain. I was on the verge of quitting tennis, but I particularly like the support from the brace and its ability to straighten me up without putting too much stress on my left side during sport; for tennis and golf, this is very good. The Unloader Hip has allowed me to keep going and kept me in a physical and mental positive state. I will eventually require a hip replacement operation, but in the meantime, the Unloader has bought me time and comfort. I will likely use it after my operation for continued support and comfort. Many thanks to Össur and Simon Boyd for his consultation, fitting and ongoing service."
