What is a Off-loading Knee Brace?

A thigh and calf shell connected by either a single (positioned on one side of the knee) or double (positioned one on each side of the knee) jointed strut(s). The shells are secured by velcro fastenings. One strut is adjustable to apply either a valgus (pushing the knee inward) or varus (pushing the knee outward) corrective force.

What does it do?

By virtue of the adjustable strut/strap design, the brace applies a force across the knee joint in an inward (valgus) or outward (varus) direction to reduce the loading to the knee and reduce pain associated with osteoarthritic changes.
