The Breg Freestyle OA Knee Brace is designed to take the pressure off (unloading the joint) the medial or lateral compartment of the knee for patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis (OA).
The knee has 2 compartments, the inside (medial) compartment and the outside (lateral) compartment. Most of the time, when you get osteoarthritis of the knee, you wear down one compartment more than the other. In a majority of the cases, the inside of the knee wears down more, leading to a bowlegged appearance of the knee in extreme cases (medial compartment OA). Other times, the outside (lateral) compartment of the knee wears down leading to a knocked knee appearance of the knee (lateral compartment OA).
The Breg Freestyle OA brace is designed to take the pressure off the compartment that is more severely worn down. For this knee brace to be fully effective, It is important to figure out which knee compartment (medial or lateral) is worn down more before deciding which Freestyle OA Knee brace is right for you. One of our physiotherapists can help you make this decision. Feel free to contact us for help.
Patients love the simple wraparound design which allows the application and removal of the brace with ease. Comfortable, breathable material provides focused compression around the knee joint to address swelling and promote blood flow. The single-sided low profile hinge encourages patient compliance, while the innovative thumb-wheel dial allows precision unloading adjustments without the use of a tool.
