“I injured my medial menisci 18 months ago; a decision was made by my Orthopaedic Surgeon to treat the injury conservatively. Remaining active in the mountain ranges is very important to my wellbeing and the brace allows me to return to any of my chosen discipline. Whether it’s a family outing on relatively easy terrain, a climbing trip with friends, or a multi-day mission to the greater range of South Africa, the (Brace) is an integral part of my kit. I have put it through its paces, and so far have not been disappointed. I can highly recommend the Unloader One X when the injury or Arthritis is diagnosed well and fits the parameters of treatment.”

Richard Schmidt, Orthotist, Cape Town
“As an orthotist, I have fitted numerous Unloaders for my patients through the years, so, when I got diagnosed with OA of my knee, I got myself an Unloader from Össur. What a change it made to my life. From the moment I put it on I could walk with almost no pain. I even went on an overseas holiday, where we needed to walk up to 10km a day. I would have missed out on so much on that trip if I did not have the Unloader. I will definitely recommend the Unloader to anybody who has OA of the knee.”

Estelle Baker, Orthotist, Cape Town.
“The Unloader FIT, and the Unloader One enable me to do all the things I love to do. Skiing, wake surfing, wakeboarding, biking, golfing, and hiking in the Rocky Mountains are all possible with the use of the braces. They allow me to live my life without limitations!”

“I want to tell you how grateful I am for this Unloader One brace. My knee had become so painful, I feared I was facing a knee replacement. With this brace, I am PAIN FREE. I do everything with it, including walking, biking, and Pilates!”

Joan W., Pilates and Hiking
“Staying active is a huge priority in my life, and I am able to do so much more by wearing this brace. When I had my microfracture surgery almost 2 years ago, my orthopedic surgeon told me that my running days were over. When I wear this brace, I am able to get on the treadmill and run for 6 miles.”

“If I’m going to be on my feet all day, I make sure I wear the Unloader One so my knee won’t bother me. Since the Unloader One is working for me, surgery on my left knee could be delayed forever.”

Lawrence F., Boxing
