Pinellas Park, FL (PRWEB) October 23, 2008
Ongoing Care Solutions, Inc., an international manufacturer of rehabilitative orthotics and medical equipment, is pleased to introduce the OrthoPro™ OA Knee Brace for patients suffering from painful osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. The patented design of the OrthoPro OA Knee Brace was borne from the needs of over 10 million U.S. patients that suffer from the debilitating pain of osteoarthritis of the knee. As one of the leading causes of disability in the U.S., osteoarthritis of the knee is widely recognized as a major, growing healthcare issue with far reaching socioeconomic impacts resulting from decreased worker productivity, disability compensation claims, and insurance costs.
Osteoarthritis patients frequently adopt an abnormal gait to minimize knee pain while walking, and recent studies have suggested that this modified gait can actually accelerate the progression of osteoarthritis. The novel design of the patient-ready OrthoPro OA Knee Brace can correct gait issues by gradual, gentle realignment of the knee while permitting rehabilitation and strengthening of the surrounding musculature. At only 11 inches (28 cm) in length, the lightweight OrthoPro OA Knee Brace is approximately 40% shorter than comparable hinged knee braces, and its low profile design means it will fit conveniently into the lifestyles and wardrobes of osteoarthritis patients.
The OrthoPro OA Knee Brace is the only knee support designed specifically to rehabilitate the knee and leg musculature to repair osteoarthritis-induced abnormal gait. In doing so, this brace can significantly decrease the progression of osteoarthritis in the knee, giving the patient less pain and improved physical capabilities in as little as three weeks.
