Meet Mike and share his Unloader Moment

Mike is a Warehouse Supervisor who was a keen walker and DIY enthusiast prior to the onset of knee pain which reduced his overall mobility. After 6 years of using painkillers to help manage the condition Mike was looking for a different way of managing pain and ultimately improving his mobility. Find out more about Mike and his Unloader Moment.

Mike 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 and 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.
