DJO Global has unveiled a new ultralight knee brace intended to help people suffering from osteoarthritis. The off-loading knee brace weighs only 14.2 ounces (400 grams) thanks to nanoMAG TTMP, a metal used in the frame that is as hard as aircraft aluminum, making it the lightest brace of its kind.
It helps relieve pain in the joint by essentially acting as a second knee, taking much of the weight off the real knee. The device requires a prescription and has to be carefully adjusted for proper alignment on each patient.
Material science collides with innovation to create high-tech functional comfort in a lightweight design. The flexibility of the magnesium frame allows for an intimate fit while the revolutionary nano MAG material provides strength to off-load and provide pain relief. OA Nano, for mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis (OA), is designed for people to stay active and move freely, making patient compliance a reality.
