"I am now back with ease!"

"I never thought that the nagging pain in my back could be due to my knees. Due to the pain and discomfort I had to use the wall to help me get around the house. My posture was bad and I could not walk or stand for long periods. After 4 months of wearing the brace, I am now back to my daily activities with ease. "

"The Unloader One has changed my life, period!"


Steve Peterson used to think he was invincible. He participated in all levels of sporting activities from as far back as he can remember. But a skying accident more than 20 years ago put a halt to his then active life.

He went on to have surgery on his knee, but it didn’t give him the relief he had hoped for. Together with the surgeon he then decided to try some bracing. That helped give him back what he thought was lost. He is now hiking, biking and doing all the things he loves.

"After my initial surgery the goal of the surgeon was to get me to 55 before my first knee replacement. Well, I am 63, wearing an Unloader One, doing everything that I want to do.”

"I didn´t think a brace could help"


His first knee operation was in high school - a football injury. His second surgery was ten years later - a karate injury. Several months ago, doctors showed Bill Bielmyer the x-ray of his ailing left knee, and he saw the bone-on-bone osteoarthritis that was causing him the deep, aching, joint pain that was slowing this fitness enthusiast down to a crawl.

But when his doctor told him he needed total knee replacement surgery, Bill objected. "I said, ‘Doc, I’m 64, I don’t want to go through another knee operation and have all these restrictions. Are there any other options?’"

After several months with his Unloader One knee brace, Bill has resumed his golfing, is enjoying pain-free walks with his wife and feeling great.

"At first I was skeptical. I didn’t think a brace could help me with the type of pain I was feeling. I turned 65 in August but feel like I’m 45 again. ‘The One’ has been a saving grace. It’s given me my life back."
