When looking for a non-surgical approach to pain and stiffness from medial or lateral unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis, the Agilium™ Freestep may be the solution for you. Manufactured by Ottobock, the Agilium brace consists of a foot component with stirrup that's cut to size and connected to a lower leg component with moveable adjustable ankle joint.
This specialized brace corrects medial pressure for patients with this condition often referred to as bow-legged as well as lateral knee osteoarthritis, often referred to as knock-kneed, when knee cap rubs to the outside of the knee joint. Agilium Freestep uses ground reaction force (GRF) to off-load or shift the center of pressure away from the affected region by focusing on the foot rather than the knee. It reduces pressure from the knee cap without wearing a bulky knee brace. The design of the Agilium Freestep is slim and lightweight to be virtually undetectable underneath slacks or jeans. It also slips right into your shoes making patients more willing to make it part of their everyday routine.
Heavier patients have found typical off-loading knee braces to be bulky. The Agilium doesn't add extra weight or bulk. In fact, it maintains its minimalistic design because GRF naturally increases with user's weight creating optimal off-loading effects.
For additional pain relief, you may be interested in applying Point Relief Pain Relieving Gel around the knee.
