Who Needs a Ovation Game Changer?
- People with unicompartment knee osteoarthritis (OA)
- Off-unloader braces are mechanical intervention designed to reduce pain
- Improve physical function
- Possibly slow disease progression
- Universal Sizing
Pain relief is thought to be mediated by distracting the involved compartment via external varus or valgus forces applied to the knee. In so doing, tibiofemoral alignment is improved, and load is shifted off the degenerative compartment, where exposure to potentially damaging and provocative mechanical stresses are reduced.
