Unloader One® SmartDosing
Unloader One
Össur's Unloader knee braces offer an effective treatment for the symptoms of osteoarthritis by unloading the side of the knee affected by osteoarthritis. A gentle force is applied to lift the affected bone away from the surface which is causing the discomfort, resulting in a reduction in pain and an increase in the wearer's mobility.

Many people choose to treat their OA symptoms, such as pain in the knees when walking, stiffness and swelling of the knee joints, with oral medications, injections and surgery. However, there is another option. Knee bracing for knee OA is less invasive and can be less costly than these other treatments. It is simple, safe and clinically proven to work. SmartDosing, powered by Boa®Technology, provides patients with a simplified, single-hand dosing dial for on-the-fly adjustability of the dual Dynamic Force Straps (DFS), helping them better manage their unicompartmental OA knee pain. By utilizing the new SmartDosing dial, users can easily adjust the dual DFS tension right through their clothes. Liners are coated with Össur Sensil® Silicone Technology to eliminate migration. The flexible perforated shells conform easily to patient anatomy, giving Unloader One OTS an excellent out-of-the box fit.
