US-based medical technology company DJO Global has unveiled its Clima-Flex OA Knee Brace from DonJoy for patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis (OA) knee pain.
Clima-Flex OA is based on new DonJoy C-6 Material Technology and is designed to offer breathable, moisture-wicking comfort that's soft to the touch; temperature controlled and comes with all-natural antimicrobial features.
The device features a keyless offloading function which enables an on-the-fly adjustment for the patients thereby facilitating a convenient, comforting relief from OA knee pain.
DJO Global bracing and vascular division president Steve Ingel said: "DonJoy pioneered the concept of functional knee bracing over 30 years ago and has led the profession of performance ever since.
"Today, as part of the DJO Global family of brands, DonJoy continues to push the envelope of innovation.
"New technologies like C-6 Material in the Clima-Flex OA brace result in world-class products that deliver complete confidence both for those who wear DonJoy braces and for those who prescribe them.
"Clima-Flex OA offers a sleek design that is comfortable, cooling and ideal for light activities such as walking, golf or hiking."
The device features the E-Z Grip wraparound application which ensures a comfort fit and can be easily adjusted for compression suited to the patient's comfort.
It is also fitted with semi-rigid cuffs which remain hidden in the thigh and calf providing comfortable support.
