Össur Unloader Hip OA Brace

Össur announces the launch of the Unloader Hip, a unique brace intended to provide relief for patients with mild-to-moderate hip osteoarthritis (OA). The Unloader Hip is designed to improve mobility by using compression to encourage external rotation and abduction of the femoral head during gait, which helps reduce load on the affected joint. Compression of the affected area also provides proprioceptive support. Made of breathable Lycra and elastic, the lightweight brace features the company’s SmartDosing system, which allows patients to adjust the fit to best suit their comfort and activity level.
