Meet Tina and share her Unloader Moment

Tina has been using the brace for a number of years and recalls the sharp pain her knee was causing her. The pain was impacting her at work and her sporting hobbies but following the fitting of the knee brace her pain levels were reduced and the progression of the arthritis was halted.

Tina 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.
