how does the Unloader One work

Osteoarthritis occurs where there is wear and tear (degradation) of the cartilage (soft tissue protecting the ends of the bones in joints) leading to bone on bone contact. It is this process which results in pain and inflammation of the knee and can affect your lifestyle.

The Unloader One knee brace is designed to reduce the load on the affected side of the knee and recent research demonstrates a reduction in pain, a reduction in the use of medication and improved function. The Unloader Hip offers a unique approach to hip OA and are proven to improve activities of daily living.

What do Unloader users say?

Clinical research has demonstrated the following results for patients with unicompartmental osteoarthritis using the Unloader One ® knee brace:

  • Decreased pain
  • Improved function
  • Reduction in usage of pain medication
