The soft OA Impulse is ideal for patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis (OA) and an active lifestyle. The Impulse is designed to give the patient the ability to adjust the amount of OA relief by adjusting the dynamic loading hinge, as well as to provide support and compression through Bledsoe’s revolutionary TriTech™ material. The combination of the TriTech material and the patented dynamic hinge technology offers fashion and function in a single OA brace.
Mild to moderate unicompartmental OA. This design addresses OA conditions only, not associated ligamentous instability.
Dynamic Hinge Technology: Hinge is on affected side of knee, pulling vs. pushing to relieve joint pain. Pulling eliminates pressure points on the joint. When the knee goes into extension, the hinge moves away from the leg and pulls the joint open.
Adjustable Dial: Dial allows for incremental force adjustments up to 12 degrees of angulation.
Thigh and Calf Shells: Internal cuffs capture the thigh and calf to improve unloading efficiency and provide greater patient comfort by spreading the forces over a larger surface area.
TriTech: Lightweight and low-profile breathable material with mild compression. TriTech keeps you cooler when you break a sweat. It is “soe” breathable, you can see through it! Increased spandex provides more compression and support while preventing brace migration.
