Unloader Spirit Knee Brace

The Unloader Spirit knee brace is an adjustable, lightweight and low profile brace for mild to moderate OA. It is the top-of-the-line Arthritis Knee Brace from Ossur.

The single upright on the affected side combines with the Dynamic Force Strap to create a 3-Point Leverage System. 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.

The Unloader Spirit is ideal for patients with proportionate limb shape wishing to enjoy their normal daily activities.

The Spirit 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.

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

Indications & Usage:
  • Mild to severe unicompartmental osteoarthritis
  • Unicompartmental knee conditions requiring load reduction, such as Articular Cartilage Defect Repair, Meniscal Cartilage Repair, Avascular Necrosis, or Tibia Plateau Fracture
  • Proportionate height-to-weight, moderately proportionate thigh-to-calf girth and moderate varus/valgus angulation
  • Thigh circumferences of 13.5" (34.3cm) to 26.5" (67cm) at 6" (15 cm) above mid-patella
  • Low to moderate 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
  • Enhanced comfort in an adjustable, lightweight and low profile design.
  • 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
  • Flexible Triax shells conform to patient's unique anatomy for an excellent fit that improves comfort and compliance
  • Lightweight and easily worn for extended periods of time
  • Extension stops for partial ROM control

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