The Bledsoe Thruster RLF Knee Brace is clinically proven to provide effective pain relief. The unique design of this single-upright OA brace creates relief by pulling the straps to open the joint space vs. pushing against the opposite side of the knee. The Thruster knee brace hinge is designed to provide up to 36 degrees of brace angulation compared to a typical unloader design that allows between 3-10 degrees of varus/valgus thrust capability. This allows the brace to unload knee joints that have excessive tissue. The adjustment dial easily adjusts the amount of varus/valgus unloading to the knee, and is capable of unloading knee joints for people with excessive soft tissue. Ideal for people with unicompartmental OA and meniscal instability injuries.
