Delay the Progression of Knee OA!
- Unique air bladder system to upload knee joint
- Corrects abnormal OA gait
- Strengthens quadriceps muscles over time
- Designed to delay OA progression with routine use
Suggested L-Code: L1845 (custom) 888.07
The pathological changes in OA gait biomechanics are directly linked to the progression of knee OA. The OA-LP
Rehabilitator Knee Brace corrects abnormal OA gait with routine brace use. With 90 days of daily use, a clinical study
has demonstrated that the gait correcting features of the OA Rehabilitator re-facilitates neurological excitation of
the affected quadriceps muscles leading to increased un-braced dynamic support of the knee joint. Patients on
average added 3/4 inch of quadriceps muscle mass, demonstrated significant reductions in un-braced knee pain
and increased functional capabilities. Most importantly, the knee adduction moment was shown to be reduced by
48% in the un-braced knee compared to a 14% reduction in patients completing 90 days of a supervised exercise
Thus the use of the OA – LP Rehabilitator is believed to be more effective than exercise alone in the
conservative treatment of knee OA.
