Knee Brace

Light as Air

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.

Revolutionary in weight and profile, OA Nano™ offers industry-leading high-tech comfort and pain relief, ensuring that patients will choose this safe, non-invasive treatment over other options. Patients with knee osteoarthritis today have the opportunity to treat their pain and stabilize their knees with non-invasive, non-addictive treatment options. With the launch of OA Nano™, the world’s lightest* knee brace at 14.2 ounces, OA patients can take advantage of the same technology used by the world class athletes DonJoy is known for treating.

OA Nano is intended for mild to moderate osteoarthritis.

90 Day Test Drive

Braces that don’t fit properly can be uncomfortable to wear, slip out of place, or produce excessive pressure that can lead to skin problems and soreness. In many cases, the brace simply doesn’t provide pain relief. DonJoy’s custom and patient-ready OA braces accommodate most people and come with our no-risk Test Drive offer. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Ease-of-Use

The Arthritis Foundation has honored DonJoy knee osteoarthritis braces with its coveted “Ease-of-Use” Commendation after an independent research lab conducted rigorous testing to assure that they met the needs of people with functional limitations due to the effects of arthritis.

Only One in Ten Americans Use Knee Braces to Treat Knee Pain

The survey also found that 58% of Americans over 40 have ignored knee pain because they didn’t think that it was a big deal. Among Americans who have experienced knee pain in the past 12 months, 41% aren’t doing anything to manage their knee pain, 36% are taking over-the-counter pain medicine, 17% are regularly taking prescription medicine, 14% are using cold compression therapy and only 12% are using a knee brace.

“Increasingly, physicians and surgeons are advocating for a conservative care treatment regimen that preserves joints and helps patients avoid or stave off more expensive, addictive or riskier treatments. Noninvasive, non-addictive treatment options, such as knee bracing, can empower patients to proactively take control of their osteoarthritis without the cost, recovery time or potential for adverse events associated with surgical procedures or narcotic pain management,” said Mike Mogul, president and CEO of DJO Global. “OA Nano™ is based on the advanced knee brace technology that professional athletes have used for years and helps patients reduce pain, increase stability and maintain their desired activity levels.”

Manufactured using nanoMAG™ TTMP, a revolutionary new kind of metal that is as light as magnesium with the strength of aircraft-grade aluminum, OA Nano™ decreases pressure on the knee by offloading stress, allowing patients to enjoy physical activities pain free with greater stability than many other conservative care treatments today. The knee brace is based on years of meticulous research and designed to optimize comfort, compliance and efficacy through its unmatched light weight, flexibility, and low profile.

“In addition to the weight and aesthetics, my patients cite the comfort of the brace as one of the most important factors in whether or not they will comply with my treatment recommendations and use osteoarthritis braces consistently,” said Dr. Joseph Hellmann of OMNI Orthopedics in Canton, Ohio. “In the growing movement of conservative care, compliance is one of the most important factors that can enable patients to successfully preserve their knee joints and maintain mobility. Given that The National Arthritis Foundation granted the OA Nano™ its Ease of Use commendation, I can be assured that my patients will actually be able to put on the brace.”

When asked if they were diagnosed with osteoarthritis and had to wear a knee brace, Americans over 40 ranked the following factors as being most important when selecting a brace: maximum comfort (32%), decreased pain (25%), light weight (12%) and increased stability (12%).

“DJO Global’s research and development team designed OA Nano™ to address all of these factors, and we are excited to help the growing segment of Americans with osteoarthritis return to their active lives,” said Mogul. “And with obesity levels rising rapidly, more Americans than ever can expect to develop OA in their lifetimes, which will only fuel more demand for more options on the conservative care spectrum.”

Among Americans over 40 who have experienced knee pain in the past 12 months, the most often cited way it has affected their lives is hindering them from doing physical activities (37%), followed by making common household chores more difficult (35%) and limiting mobility (31%). While these findings may not be surprising, the amount that Americans know about osteoarthritis is.

Osteoarthritis Myths Versus Facts

  • The survey also revealed that the majority (94%) of Americans ages 40 and older don’t know all the facts about osteoarthritis.
  • 68% of Americans do not know that the joint disorder is the leading cause of chronic disability
  • 66% incorrectly believe there is a cure for the joint disorder
  • 40% think that the joint disorder affects people of all ages equally, while the likelihood of developing osteoarthritis actually increases with age
