Description

F.L.A. OA/Arthritis Knee Brace


The F.L.A. OA/Arthritis Knee Brace provides excellent support and targeted pain relief.

The unilateral hinge and strapping system work together to apply a corrective force to the joint - creating space in the joint where cartilage has deteriorated.

  • Stress and load on the affected side of the joint is transferred to the unaffected compartment
  • Allows the joint to realign
  • The "off-loading" reduces bone on bone contact and the associated pain
  • Wrap-around design is quick and easy to apply to tender, swollen knees
  • Support straps allow for adjustable compression
  • Neoprene material provides therapeutic warmth to soothe the aching joint
  • Available in medial and lateral designs for left and right knee applications
  • Interchangeable condyle pads for day-to-day adjustment
  • Color: Beige
  • Available in 7 sizes
  • Note: This is a single hinged brace
  • The hinge is located on the same side of the affected compartment
  • If knee pain is on inside of the right knee, then a medial right/lateral left brace is to be ordered

Best use of my money

After my Dr suggested a off loading brace that cost $800 I decided to do some research online. Skeptical at first but this turned out to be the best decision. I wear it every day and it has almost done away with knee pain. I am able to get around while at work with a little pep in my step. Not bulky comfortable. I love it.

Great Product

I'm on my feet all day at work and this has made it so much better. The staff was very helpful in helping me select the right brace. I told them the problem and they told me which brace I needed. I ordered one to try. It helped so much that I ordered another brace for my other knee. Customer service is outstanding.

This brace is not only comfortable, it provides stability & helps ease my OA knee pain. On those days where I really swell & hurt...this will help. I recommend this to anyone with OA knee pain!

Outstanding

Both of my knees are collapsed and bone on bone making every step a painfull challange. These braces have made me mobile once again. They align my knees and offer the support needed to allow me to walk and move like other people. Nothing short of amazing! The service given by the Brace Shop people goes above and beyond. Thanks guys for your help

i ordered the large and needed the medium. The Brace Shop helped me get the right size and they were great.

The brace itself is great, My knee does feel better when i walk with it on. I may need more than a brace however to handle my particular knee problem. The brace shop provided outstanding service.

Excellent

My rt. knee is trashed and I need a TKR. I just don't feel like going through all that crap any time soon. Your brace is keeping me out of the OR. Thanks.

Excell

Light weight and easy to put on, serves me as a second brace for light days

An average product

Product fits as advertised. However, the straps don't stay in place, the top one specifically slides down over the kneecap constantly. Maybe it should have a longer Velcro piece to make adjustment easier. I would investigate another brace if I needed to purchase another one.

Erica, on 12-13-2016
Too bulky

After reading the reviews, I thought this would be a good buy. I was looking for something that was too noticeable, but this brace is way to thick and bulky for me.

Archi, on 12-13-2016
Tiny pain reduction if any. Kind of bulky, easy to put on.

Disappointed, very little if any pain relief.

Eagle, on 12-13-2016
Easy to put on and take off and comfortable

Purchased this for my 96 year old mother who wears it daily and gives her support of the right meniscus she needs.

Dino, on 12-13-2016
Good follow-up support brace

An excellent 2nd stage for support and healing after usage of a rigid ACL / MCL brace

Al , on 12-13-2016
Relieves stress on knee

easy to put on, relieves the stress on the bone-on-bone, and allows me to participate in my regular physical activities

GREAT SUPPORT

Much better than the hinged brace. I feel it supports my knee well. No knee buckling since I got it. Now have to see how hot it will get in the warm weather.

Christine, on 12-13-2016
Excellant

I am ordering my second set of braces in the next smaller size. The first set fit me perfectly when ordered. I have had such success with regard ot reduction in swelling of my knees by wearing my braces for all hours that I am up and around, that I need a smaller size. I have been amazed and thrilled. I am able to return to an active life again as i wait for double knee replacement. I am certain my surgeon will be delighted also that my swelling is very minimal.. Thank you, I am looking forward to my new braces. these are a bit bulky, but i am more concerned with pain and welling than fashion or inconvenience.

Effective for pain relief and comfort

This brace helps get me around when I have my most severe trouble. Well worth the purchase price.

Sandy, on 12-13-2016
lifestyle saver

started out using this brace on my old knee that's waiting for replacement. ordering another for the knee that was replaced cause after a year its still very painful and this brace allows me to walk in comfort. have walked over 300 miles in 4 months and without the brace I would have been sitting in a chair.

Sandy, on 12-13-2016
great product!!

The wording needs to be for people without a medical background. This brace is great. Got one for my right knee that's waiting for surgery and it works. Ordered one for my left knee and ended up getting another right knee one, but I use it on my left leg anyway. I have walked over 370 miles this year to date and could not have done it without the braces and I'm over 60 years old.

Doc, on 12-13-2016
a 5 star rating

I was loaned this brace and it substantially keeps my knee in line with my leg and supports it with the tight fit and adjustable straps. I am looking for another locally but am having trouble finding one.

Happy Dad, on 12-13-2016
Great brace in beige

I bought this brace for my dad as he was looking for a long time for a beige colored brace. His size was between S & M so we decided to go to the smaller size. He put it on today for the first time and was able to walk pain free for several hours. Needless to say that he loves it and may buy another one for his other knee.
