The AirShift OA Knee Brace uses the power of air to comfortably relieve pain for those individuals with uni-compartmental osteoarthritis.
Air Bladder System
Inflatable air bladder allows you to adjust the level of unloading. Double layer air bladder consists of an inner vinyl layer and outer nylon layer for greater durability. High quality air valve prevents leakage. Movable condylar gel pad is now larger to more comfortably distribute the air bladder’s unloading force on the knee. Air bladder system and single upright hinge are applied opposite the affected side of the knee.
Spiral Strapping System
Padded spiral straps work in concert with the air bladder to unload the osteoarthritic compartment of the knee using a 3-point leverage system. Distal spiral strap and inner Skinloc™ material capture the upper calf muscle to resist distal migration.
Wraparound closure allows for ease of application and an optimum fit. In addition, this design enables you to inventory fewer SKUs yet still fit a wide range of patient sizes.
