Breg OA knee braces, including the Freestyle OA, are commonly used by individuals with unicompartmental osteoarthritis.
Before wearing any knee brace, carefully read fitting instructions and warnings prior to use to ensure proper performance of the brace. Follow all instructions. Failure to properly position the brace and fasten each strap will compromise performance and comfort. Braces are for single patient use only.
If you experience increased pain, swelling, skin irritation, or any adverse reactions while using a Breg knee brace, immediately consult your medical professional.
Breg knee braces will not prevent or reduce all injuries. Proper rehabilitation and activity modification are also an essential part of a safe treatment program. Consult with your licensed health care professional regarding safe and appropriate activity levels while wearing these devices.
When using braces bilaterally, modify activity as necessary to keep medial hinges from contacting each other.
Care and cleaning are essential to continued strength and performance. Follow the removal and cleaning process described in the "Instructions for Use" pamphlet which comes with each Breg brace. When using Breg knee braces, it is important to keep dirt and grit out of the hinge mechanisms to maintain proper hinge mobility and brace function.
The information presented is for educational purposes only. Speak to your doctor to decide if a Breg OA knee brace is appropriate for you. Individual results vary and not all patients will return to the same activity level. The lifetime of any device is limited and depends on several factors like patient weight and activity level. Ask your doctor if the Freestyle OA knee brace is right for you.
