The Unloader One® remains one of the most innovative and successful products on the market for patients suffering with osteoarthritis of the knee. Designed with patient compliance in mind The Unloader One X builds on the existing strengths and over 20 years’ experience of the Unloader One. This clinically proven* OA Knee Brace incorporates a host of new features designed to improve patient comfort, ease of use and aesthetics while maintaining the same pain relief for a wider range of patients.

According to Arthritis Research UK, approximately 8.75 million people seek treatment for osteoarthritis in the UK. Common symptoms include painful joints, stiffness, reduced participation in daily activities and poor quality of life. As well as being a cost-effective method to bridge and delay surgery in uni-compartmental osteoarthritis (BMJ Journals), knee bracing is also recognised by NICE Knee OA Guidelines as a non-invasive alternative to surgical intervention.

Sharron Davies MBE is an Olympian, BBC sports presenter and mum to 3 sporty children. Sharron leads an active life and serves as a patron to many charities. She is also an osteoarthritis ambassador for Össur, following many knee surgeries and a diagnosis of osteoarthritis. Reluctant to have any further surgery, Sharron looked for alternative options until she found some much needed pain relief in the Unloader One Knee Brace, which has had a huge positive impact on her day-to-day life.

“Immediately after the Unloader brace was fitted, I was able to walk without pain for the first time in years. I have even started running again” – Sharron Davies, MBE and Sports Presenter

Coming in 2020, Össur will be offering the Unloader One X in vibrant customised colours. This gives patients the opportunity to personalise and actively choose the aesthetic of their osteoarthritis knee brace.
