DonJoy OA Reaction Knee Brace
The DonJoy OA Reaction Knee Brace is a new variation of the popular DonJoy Reaction knee brace that encompasses a mild off load of the medial or lateral compartment of a knee joint with unicompartmental osteoarthritis.
The knee brace is an alternative to a metal or carbon fiber “unloader” type knee support, but is more than lower cost fabric type braces that are sometimes referred to as an arthritis knee brace.
The Basic Reaction Knee Brace claim is that the design and elastomeric web material provides shock absorption and disperses energy, while shifting pain away from the knee. The Reaction Web Knee Brace was developed by Dr. William Nordt, an orthopedic surgeon.
The DonJoy OA Reaction Knee Brace has a hinge on one side with a soft silicone condyle pad under the brace to ensure comfort along the medial or lateral aspect of the knee joint. The knee brace is very low-profile and can be worn under most clothing, making it a great alternative to more bulky arthritis knee braces.
The DonJoy OA Reaction Knee Brace is not for everyone. The brace only provides a mild unloading effect, so if more rigidity is needed and a larger degree of unloading is needed, you must utilize a metal or carbon fiber unloader type knee brace, that provides knee joint stability and unloading of the medial or lateral knee compartments. For these types of situations the DonJoy OA Nano Arthritis Knee Brace or the new OA Ajuster 3 can fulfill those requirements.
The DonJoy OA Reaction Knee Brace is comfortable to wear for long periods of time during the day. The price is very reasonable for a hinged arthritis knee brace and does include an undersleeve which helps with keeping the brace in place on the knee and provides additional comfort and compression.
The brace is ideal for sports such as tennis, golf and running.
