The main benefits of the Unloader One

Decreased knee pain – for a more active life

The support provided by the brace allows you to take up the activities you may have begun to avoid because of the pain and stiffness caused by OA. Start enjoying your favorite sports again or simply enjoy your improved mobility for everyday life.

Reduced reliance on pain medication – with no unwanted side effects

As your pain decreases, with use of the Unloader One, so does your reliance on painkillers. While they certainly have their uses, the stronger painkillers can sometimes have unwanted side-effects. Several scientific studies show a 60-70% decrease in pain when a brace is included in the overall treatment of an OA patient. The results also show increased activity levels, decreased pain and less usage of pain medication.

Improved knee function – helping to avoid or postpone surgery

For some people, the Unloader One can mean surgery is no longer a necessity, as their mobility is increased and pain is reduced. For others, the brace is used as an interim measure, postponing the need for surgery until they feel both mentally and physically prepared for the procedure.
