The Unloader One X knee brace is your companion for everyday activities and adventures. It is designed to reduce the pain associated with unicompartmental osteoarthritis of the knee. The Unloader One X’s patented 3-Point Leverage System and dual DFS straps biomechanically unload your affected knee compartment, which may result in a reduction of pain due to knee OA as well as degenerative meniscal tears. Brand - Ossur.
Wearing the Unloader One X may help improve mobility and function by generating unicompartmental unloading of the knee joint for people with knee osteoarthritis and degenerative meniscal tears.
Multiple peer-reviewed clinical and bio-mechanical studies have investigated Össur’s unique 3-Point Leverage System and Dynamic Force Straps, which are easily fine-tuned using the SmartDosing® system, to provide unloading of the knee joint
Evidence Based Intervention
Treating Knee OA Biomechanically
An innovative solution that addresses knee pain caused by unilateral osteoarthritis at the source and may provide relief without the use of medication or surgery.
3-Point Leverage System consisting of two Dynamic Force System (DFS) Straps, rigid shells and a single upright hinge contribute to a unicompartmental unloading of the knee joint.
The unloading is effective only when needed, no condyle pressure during sitting or swing phase.
A slender, perforated frame with soft edges, which contours easily to individual anatomies and remains discreet whether worn over or under clothing.
Skin-friendly liners and pads as well as a smooth inner surface of shells reduce the likelihood of pressure points.
The gastroc strap is positioned over the thickest part of calf to help prevent slipping.
Tool-free SmartDosing® dials enable the patient to be in control of their pain level by fine-tuning the strap tension.
BOA® Fit System- Dial in to fast, effortless, precision fit.
Colour coded touchpoints and Quick-Fit buckles make it easy to use.
Alignment guide on hinge facilitates correct positioning on the leg.
Entire brace is machine washable (washbag included with product).
Easily adaptable to individual needs and anatomical shapes.
– Moderate to severe single compartment knee osteoarthritis (OA)
– Degenerative meniscal tears
– Other unicompartmental knee conditions that may benefit from unloading, such as:
Articular cartilage defect repair
Condylar bone marrow lesions
Tibial plateau fractures
Sizing and ordering is based on Size (knee circumference), side ( Left or Right) and Compartment to be unloaded (Medial or Lateral)
