Meet Steve and share his Unloader Moment

Meet Steve, a company director who has been using the Unloader One for some time after knee pain began to affect him physically and mentally. Steve describes how the psychological effect of the limits on his activities were impacting his wellbeing and the improvement in his lifestyle after he was prescribed with an Unloader.

Steve 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.
