How do Unloader Braces work?

Unloader knee braces unload the affected, painful side of the knee using a 3-Point Leverage System. The thigh and calf shells account for two points of leverage, while the Dynamic Force Strap (the diagonal strap above the knee) provides the third. This system "unloads" the pressure from the affected area, providing a reduction in pain. Unloader knee braces feature a lightweight, low-profile design, which is barely noticeable, and fits discreetly under clothing. Utilising the SmartDosing® dial with Boa® technology, it provides you with a simplified, single hand dosing dial for on-the-fly adjustability, helping you better manage unicompartmental OA knee pain.

Unloader Hip is designed to reduce load on the affected joint surface through rotation and abduction of the femoral head. The brace is designed to optimise Hip OA treatment. With its breathable materials and integrated elastic sections, Unloader Hip provides a comfortable and snug fit -allowing a discreet fit under clothing.
