'Unloading' the damaged area of the knee

The 'bone-on-bone' friction in an untreated knee

Untreated, the cartilage will gradually wear down. The increased pressure on the underlying bone is the cause of the pain experienced by most osteoarthritis (OA) sufferers. The wear and tear on the cartilage will gradually cause the knee to become painful and feel stiff when moving.

Unloading a damaged knee affected by osteoarthritis

The Unloader One applies a gentle force design to reduce the pressure on the affected part of the knee, resulting in reduction in pain and thus allowing the patient to use the knee normally and more frequently.
