The DonJoy OA FullForce knee brace off-loads the affected compartment of the knee while reducing ligament strain, allowing active patients to go more miles with less pain.
3-Point Off-Loading mechanically shifts the painful joint loads from the degenerative compartment to the healthy compartment, while the hinge allows the ability to fine-tune the load.
4-Points-of-Leverage is clinically shown to reduce ACL strain by keeping the knee in a stable position to minimize further cartilage damage.

What to expect from a Osteoarthritis (OA) knee brace
Braces cannot cure OA and may not be right for everyone. However, it is a viable solution for many people. The ideal candidates are typically active people who are motivated to strengthen their muscles and willing to wear a brace to realize the benefits of this form of treatment.
Discuss treatment goals with your doctor and others on your health care team before you get a brace. Don’t expect a brace to feel good from the start. It may take from a week to a month to get used to how the brace feels on your leg.
Be patient. It took a long time for your knee OA to develop. Bracing has come close to eliminating pain for some people with knee OA, while others experience moderate relief.
