The Breg DUO (Dynamic Unloading Osteoarthritis brace) is the only dual-upright dynamic OA brace on the market. Unlike traditional braces that apply a constant unloading effect, this brace creates a load across the joint when the knee is extended and reduces the load as the knee flexes. Thus, when the patient is bearing weight, the brace is actively unloading. The DUO reduces force when sitting, making it ideal for patients who need to wear a brace for daily activities.
The DUO is ideally suited for people with active lifestyles wanting support and pain relief from a dual-upright brace. The brace actively unloads the knee during the extension phase of walking or standing and gradually tapers as the knee is flexed during the swing-through phase during walking or while sitting. This makes the DUO OA knee brace is a great solution for everyday wear.

How Does The Brace Work?
In extension, the hinge bar on the side of the affected compartment becomes longer while the opposite hinge bar can be shortened to create bowing in the frame. This creates three points of unloading force to the knee. The affected compartment is gently offloaded with each step.
Which DUO Knee Brace Version Is Right For Me?
You should choose the Medial type to treat a bowlegged (varus) look caused by medial compartment osteoarthritis, and you should choose a Lateral type to treat knock knees (valgus) look caused by lateral compartment osteoarthritis.
