The Donjoy OA Lite is a comfortable, prefabricated osteoarthritis knee brace designed for treating mild to moderate osteoarthritis. The lightweight unloading knee brace is designed to reduce pain commonly experienced with daily activity and is best suited for active, non-sedentary individuals.
The Donjoy OA Lite is made from Drytex - a breathable, neoprene-free material that provides both greater comfort and breathability in hot environments. The nylon-based fabric provides support and compression without trapping heat inside encouraging osteoarthritis knee patients to remain active. The easy-to-adjust medial hinge design shifts weight from the affected side of the knee to help provide effective pain relief.
Regular activity has been recommended for years as an important treatment approach for arthritis and maintaining good knee health. Off-loading braces like the OA Lite relieve pain by redistributing the weight bearing load on affected compartment of the knee joint to the healthy or unaffected side of the joint. The lightweight brace helps return to their activities of daily living with knee support and less discomfort. It's suitable for people with mainly mild to moderate arthritis, osteoarthritis and mild patellofemoral malignment issues. The short brace length, low profile design, and patient-friendly features make it convenient to put on\take off, and wear underneath clothing.
