The Neutralizer is for the person with medial or lateral Osteoarthritis. The Neutralizer corrects the knee alignment to a "neutral" position preventing bone on bone contact that creates pain in the knee. This type of brace is often referred to as an "unloader" style arthritis knee brace.
This proven technology permits reduction of knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. Increased comfort and stability from a brace can lead to greater mobility and enjoyment of recreational activities. This alternative is a great solution when surgery is not yet an option or will be a long wait.
