Description
 

Unloader Express Knee Brace

The Express is the most popular brace for Arthritis. Primarily due to it's the unique hinge system. The Unloader Express is contoured at the factory to accommodate either a medial or lateral compartment patient.

Using the proven 3-Point Leverage System, the Express combines an Adjustable Dynamic Joint with a Dynamic Force Strap to unload the affected compartment, reducing pain.

Best Osteoarthritis (OA) Bracing Technology.
The Express works by reducing weight-bearing pressure on your knee joint and the way it separates the bones when the cartilage or ligaments are damaged. This action not only reduces pain but can also prevent further damage to your knee.

Reasons to choose the Unloader Express:
  • Best solution for most Arthritic patients
  • Light weight, low profile design
  • Breathable CoolFlex material provides excellent wicking and drying
  • Removable, washable sleeve

Not recommended for:
  • High contact sports
  • Patients with excess soft tissue
Caution:
For patients with peripheral vascular disease, neuropathy, and sensitive skin, close supervision of the practitioner is recommended.

Unloader Express is ideal for patients who don't require a custom orthosis. As with the custom model, this lightweight brace preserves the clinically-proven Ossur Unloader 3-Points of Leverage design by incorporating Dual Dynamic Force Straps that are easily fine tuned via a Dynamic Force Control System.

Compartments:
Available for Medial or Lateral compartment. Choose appropriate style when ordering.

Indications & Usage:
  • Mild to severe unicompartmental osteoarthritis
  • Proportionate height-to-weight and thigh-to-calf girth
  • Mild cognitive and/or manual dexterity deficiencies
  • Low activities of daily living
Product Features:
  • Dynamic Force Strap (DFS) applies a counteracting force to the adduction moment, considered to be the root cause of knee OA
  • The single upright on the affected side combines with the Dynamic Force Strap to create a 3-Point Leverage System
  • Adjustable Dynamic Joint (ADJ) allows the clinician to easily control the varus or valgus force for optimal pain management
  • Adjustable Tibial Strap (ATS) captures the tibia and allows adjustments in hinge depth for a more customized fit
  • Combining a CoolFlex sleeve with a semi-rigid frame, the Express offers a unique variation on the Unloader theme
  • Removable, washable sleeve allows for easy and accurate brace placement

Warranty:
Ossur warrants the frame and hinge components to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for 2 years.
