Bledsoe DUO Arthritis Knee Brace Information

A completely new design from Bledsoe, our DUO (Dynamic Unloading Osteoarthritis) Brace is the only double upright "dynamic" OA brace in the market.

This brace creates a load across the joint when the knee is straight and reduces the load when the knee is flexed. Thus, when the patient is bearing weight, the brace is actively working. DUO is active when the patient is standing and relieves pressure when sitting.

  • Low-profile frame
  • Dynamic loading hinge
  • Incremental arm adjustments
  • Available in both custom and off the shelf
  • Picture shown is custom color
  • Off the shelf color: Black
  • Unique strapping prevents migration
  • Requires the brace for all-day use
  • OK for patients with redundant tissue
  • OK for low activity levels like golf, bowling, etc.

Indications

The New Bledsoe DUO Arthritis Knee Brace is indicated for medial and lateral unicompartmental gonarthrosis to help relieve symptoms of pain and inflammation, to aid in delaying osteotomy or total joint procedures, to increase daily walking time while increasing activities, and to aid in slowing the progression of the condition.

Also indicated for post-operative or post-injury application following lateral and postero-lateral injuries to the connective tissues of the knee to help relieve stress on these healing structures.
