Meet Julie and share her Unloader Moment

After injuring her knee on an urban assault course Julie has been suffering from knee pain. This has prevented the teacher and keen runner from pursuing the active lifestyle she craves. Julie is fitted with the brace and you can see how much confidence it gives her in using the stairs, previously a difficulty due to the knee pain.

Julie 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.
