This Osteoarthritis (OA)/Arthritis Knee Brace provides excellent support and targeted pain relief
This Osteoarthritis (OA)/Arthritis Knee Brace provides excellent support and targeted pain relief.
The unilateral hinge and strapping system work together to apply a corrective force to the joint - creating space in the joint where cartilage has deteriorated.
Stress and load on the affected side of the joint is transferred to the unaffected compartment, allowing the joint to realign.
The "off-loading" reduces bone on bone contact and the associated pain.
Wrap-around design is quick and easy to apply to tender, swollen knees, and support straps allow for adjustable compression.
Neoprene material provides therapeutic warmth to soothe the aching joint.
Available in medial and lateral designs for left and right knee applications.
Interchangeable condyle pads for day-to-day adjustment.
Color: Beige. Measure around leg 4" above center of knee.
Definition of Medial
Medial:1. Pertaining to the middle; in or toward the middle; nearer the middle of the body. Medial is as opposed to lateral. For example, the medial side of the knee is the side closest to the other knee whereas the lateral side of the knee is the outside of the knee. 2. Within a multilayered structure, the center layer. The medial layer of the aorta is the middle layer. For example, necrosis of the medial layer of the aorta may lead to aortic rupture.
