Ortho Pro OA Knee Brace

OrthoPro OA Rehabilitator
Delay OA Progression of the Knee

  1. Adjustable air bladder unloading system allows the patient to tailor the corrective fource to match patient activity.
  2. Dynamic conform ability prevent brace migration.
  3. Patend pending sing assist promotes heel to toe gait to increase quad firing.
The Orthopro OA Knee Brace is an off the shelf product that not only unloads the affective compartment of the knee to relieve pain but also will help to rehabilitate quadriceps that have atrophied as the disease progresses. This ability, to increase quad strength, is accomplished by correcting the abnormal gait of the patient which, when routinely used, will delay the progression of OA.

Clinical studies show a link between OA progression and abnormal OA gait. As OA progresses, the patient incrementally changes the way that they walk to avoid pain in the affected compartment of the knee. This change in gait alters the firing of the quadriceps muscles resulting in reduced quad strength and muscle mass in the affected leg over time. Loss of quad strength reduces the dynamic support of the knee joint, leading to more force on the affected compartment of the knee and a progression of OA.

The Orthopro OA air uploading system provides an adjustable corrective force to allow the patient to move quickly and easily adjust the corrective force necessary to comfortably unload the knee depending on the level of patient activity. The patent pending swing assist mechanism encourages heel to toe gait which is necessary to maintain or improve quad strength.

The unique brace low profile design incrementally corrects gait over time to improve muscle firing sequence memory to assist in normalizing gait. After wearing the brace several months, many patients report increased leg strength, improved gait, and significantly reduced pain when walking without the brace.

Simply unloading the OA knee and providing a corrective force to improve joint space balance can lead the patient to become dependent on the knee brace for pain relief. By correcting gait with hell to toe facilitated gait, increasing the recruitment of the quadriceps muscles, and normalizing muscle firing sequences, the Orthopro OA Knee Brace provides rehabilitative benefits not found with OA unloading knee braces.

For patients that would benefit from delaying the progression of OA, the Orthopro OA knee rehabilitator provides an alternative to injections and imminent total knee replacement surgery to manage OA of the knee.
Product Features:
  • Double upright offset design provides superior unloading.
  • Multiple fulcrums provide adjustable corrective forces.
  • High power elastic provides dynamic swing assist.
  • Contour air bladder positioned mid-knee provides either corrective valgus or varus force.
  • Second contour air bladder aids in lower leg alignment.
  • Medial hinge to control both flexion and extension motion when necessary.

Thigh circumference: measurement A is taken 4.5" up from middle of patella.
Calf circumference: measurement B is taken 4" down from the middle of the patella.

Varus Offset (feet together/knees apart):
Select the Varus Offset if, when standing with your feet together, your knees slope gradually apart. This is also commonly known as being "Bow Legged". Order by Thigh Circumference measured 4.5 inches (11.4 cm) above the middle of the knee cap and Calf Circumference measured 4.0 inches (10.2 cm) below the knee cap.

Valgus Offset (knees together/feet apart)
:
Select the Valgus Offset if, when standing with your knees together, your feet are separated. This is also commonly known as being "Knock Kneed". Order by Thigh Circumference measured 4.5 inches (11.4 cm) above the middle of the knee cap and Calf Circumference measured 4.0 inches (10.2 cm) below the knee cap.
