Osteoarthritis' What it is and how bracing can help.

An osteoarthritic knee corrected by an OA knee brace. Osteoarthritis is often a by-product of overuse, trauma, an injury or just genetics. It occurs when the joint surface wears and tears, deteriorating the cartilage within the joint that allows the bones to move freely against each other. In OA of the knee, the result can be the painful rubbing together of the femur (thigh bone) against the tibia (shin bone). DonJoy OA braces alleviate pain through the application of corrective load against the knee joint. Simply put, the braces apply an opposing force against the knee, causing the joint to realign, thereby decreasing or eliminating the contact between the two bone surfaces. The result is decreased pain and increased mobility.

Note: The left medial hinge brace (Med - L) is for the patient with valgus OA in their left leg. This also fits the patient with varus OA in their right leg... right lateral hinge brace (Lat - R). The brace hinge is on the opposite side to the affected compartment.

Indications

DonJoy OA LITE Osteoarthritis Knee Brace is specifically designed and modeled to fit the patient with mild unicompartmental osteoarthritis (Grades I & II) and the individual who either does not want surgery or has complications that prevent the surgical option.
