Ossur Unloader One® X knee brace

Based on more than 18 years of patient and practitioner experiences, the Unloader One® X is a medical device with biomechanical properties that is clinically proven to provide pain relief and functional improvements for people suffering from uni-compartmental osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee and degenerative meniscal tears.

Ideal for those suffering from moderate to severe uni-compartmental knee OA, degenerative meniscal tears and other knee conditions that may benefit from uni-compartmental offloading. Also ideal to help delay or prevent knee joint replacement surgery. 

Main key features of the Ossur Unloader One X knee brace:

  • ● 3-Point Leverage System consisting of two Dynamic Force System (DFS) Straps, rigid shells and a single upright hinge contribute to a uni-compartmental unloading of the knee joint.
  • ● The unloading is effective only when needed, no condyle pressure during sitting or swing phase.
  • ● A slender, perforated frame with soft edges, which contours easily to individual anatomies and remains discreet whether worn over or under clothing.
  • ● Skin-friendly liners and pads as well as a smooth inner surface of shells reduce the likelihood of pressure points.
  • ● The gastroc strap is positioned over the thickest part of calf to help prevent slipping.
  • ● Tool-free SmartDosing® dials enable the patient to be in control of their pain level by fine-tuning the strap tension.
  • ● Colour coded touchpoints and Quick-Fit buckles make it easy to use.
  • ● Alignment guide on hinge facilitates correct positioning on the leg.
  • ● Entire brace is machine washable (washbag included with product).
  • ●Easily adaptable to individual needs and anatomical shapes.
