Millions of people suffer from osteoarthritis knee pain and are unable to comfortably walk, climb stairs, or perform other everyday movements that require full knee mobility. The Trident Osteoarthritis Knee Brace helps reduce mild to moderate arthritis knee pain and enables comfortable knee movement over a greater range of motion.
The brace provides a natural alternative to medication or surgery. Using a patented dynamic wedge system, this brace relieves medial (inner) or lateral (outer) knee pain. Wearers can experience improved function and greater motion with less pain during everyday activity.
A lightweight design provides comfortable, low-maintenance relief for osteoarthritis knee pain. At less than 12 oz, the Trident is now one of the lightest OA Knee Braces available!
By applying force via condyle pads at three points, the brace’s patented dynamic wedge system uses the fulcrum effect to reduce pressure on the affected area of the knee. Simply put, the knee brace takes the load off the knee. This process – known as medial or lateral unloading – helps alleviate pain, making it easier to get moving again.
- Versatility: The bilateral, universal designed brace unloads medial or lateral knee compartments. The patented wedge system unloads pressure from the affected area of the knee.
- Increased mobility: daily activities, such as walking and climbing stairs, become easier.
- Ease of Use: simple to put on and adjust. Adjustable straps allow the brace to fit a variety of sizes.
- Lightweight Design: comfortable, light, and easily worn under clothing.
The Trident Osteoarthritis Knee Brace is intended for everyday activity and not high intensity or high impact athletics. One size fits most people; bilateral fits right or left knee.
