Single hinged functional knee brace for the relief of uni-compartmental osteoarthritis of the knee.

The BraceID® OA varus/valgus Orthosis provides the perfect balance between structural correction and patient compliance.
Frame and hinge is always applied laterally, and corrects either medial or lateral compartment depending on the correction direction of the hinge.

Features and Benefits

  • Strong, light weight frame and hinge construction with low profile
  • Laterally applied frame and hinge avoids contralateral limb contact during gait.
  • The hinge technology changes the overall valgus/varus angle of the brace for optimal correction leverage of the knee. With the ability for fine tuning the corrective forces during fitting, it ensures a clinical compliant effect for the patient.
  • Provides the perfect balance between structural correction and patient compliance.
  • A unique buckle system eliminates the need of adjustments each time the brace is being applied or removed.
  • Numbered buckles ensure a simple fastening sequence of the straps.
