Meet Caroline and share her Unloader Moment

Caroline works actively in countryside management and has been experiencing knee pain and inflammation for some time. The pain has prevented her from exercising, with doctors even suggesting a half knee replacement as a means of managing the condition, something she is not comfortable with. Find out more about Caroline’s story and her experience of using the Unloader One for the first time.

Caroline is one of eight participants in a study into the ‘Unloader Moment’ carried out by Dr Sheila Strover. Dr Strover had been told about the moment a patient first wears the Unloader One and that their face lights up with amazement due to the pain reduction. She was interested to see this for herself challenged Össur to demonstrate the knee brace in action. A series of eight videos have been published on which show the participants experiencing their own ‘Unloader Moment’ with the brace.

We invite you to share in the ‘Unloader Moment’ on Facebook and twitter using #unloadermoment to share your story and view others.
