Study Indicates Bionic Knee Brace Designed for Osteoarthritis Reduces Joint Load Across the Entire Knee Offering a New Non-Surgical Option for PatientsZiad
A recent study by researchers at the University of New Brunswick (UNB) indicates that tricompartment unloader knee braces are an effective option for reducing forces throughout the knee, giving hope for a new non-invasive option to the 14 million-plus people across North America affected by knee osteoarthritis.
The study modeled various configurations of Spring Loaded Technology’s knee braces, examining their effect on the forces experienced in all three knee compartments. The findings will be presented publicly for the first time this week at the Biennial Meeting of the Canadian Society of Biomechanics in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Read more >>
