Thuasne Rebel Reliever Osteoarthritis Knee Brace

Osteoarthritis isn't just caused by the natural wear of cartilage over the years; it can also be the result of overexerting yourself while you play sporting activities. The Thuasne Rebel Reliever Osteoarthritis Knee Brace is the only knee support that is universally adaptable to help reduce compressing forces in the area and improve medial osteoarthritis (OA), lateral OA and ligament instability. The brace is designed to stabilise the knee by gently applying a three-point corrective force to the leg.

Who Can Make Gains with the Rebel Reliever Brace?

Sports like cycling can exacerbate OA in your knee joint, particularly if you use a high gear that forces you to put pressure on your knees. Although leading an active lifestyle is generally important for OA as excess weight can put more pressure on the knees, it's important to play sports that won't be taxing on your knees.

If you've been diagnosed with OA in the knee, the Rebel Reliever helps to reduce compressing forces in the knee by 36%. Other clinically proven benefits include the following, all of which can help you remain active:

  • Improved walking capacity
  • Improved muscle function
  • Reduced compressing forces
  • Improved ADL participation
  • Reduced pain and symptoms
  • Improved quality of life
  • Improved balance and confidence
