Designed for moderate to severe, unicompartmental Osteoarthritis. The OAdjuster is recommended for ligament instabilities and post-operative rehabilitation.
The OAdjuster offers an off-the-shelf solution to osteoarthritis pain with its revolutionary "Progressive Loading System", providing an integrated patient-controlled load adjustment. The Bi-Axial hinge allows for a double upright design to contour to the leg and fit comfortable, without migration. The Load Sensor, a DonJoy exclusive, helps to determine the forces being applied by the brace.
Medial or Lateral refers to the affected compartment.
Arthritis refers to more than 100 diseases that affect the joints and their surrounding tissues. Osteoarthritis, or OA, is the most common form of arthritis. The statistics on OA are staggering:
The joint most often affected by osteoarthritis is the knee. Knee OA is caused by the degeneration or breakdown of articular cartilage that covers the ends of the bones that meet at the joint. Cartilage serves as a cushion between the bones, providing a smooth surface for the bones to move against each other. When the cartilage deteriorates the bones may actually be rubbing together. Your physician will often refer to this as “bone-on-bone” osteoarthritis.
Knee braces are available that are specifically designed to treat OA. They stabilize the joint, reduce pain and help to build stronger muscles, which allows patients to return to the activities they love. Load redistribution and joint alignment Through a process called “off-loading” or shifting, OA braces relieve pain by redistributing the weight bearing load on the painful or affected compartment of the joint to the healthy or unaffected compartment. Increased function Studies have shown that wearing an OA brace can increase daily functions and decrease pain. Patients diagnosed with OA who wear a knee brace will generally feel better in the morning, be more active during the day, and rest more comfortably at night.
