DonJoy OA Everyday Osteoarthritis Knee Brace

The DonJoy OA Everyday knee brace is considered the easiest OA brace to use. It is simple to put on, quick to adjust, and comfortable to wear. In fact, the Arthritis Foundation awarded it a Commendation for ease of use. It can take a little time to get used to wearing the brace, but once accustomed to it, wearers report great relief from the symptoms of osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, affects the knee more than any other joint, and tends to affect the medial (inner) side of the knee. Designed for mild to moderate uni-compartmental (on one side of the knee) osteoarthritis and mild ligament instability, the OA brace enables wearers to return to activity. Activity is extremely helpful for osteoarthritis as it stimulates cartilage cells in the knee. Staying active also helps to keep a person's weight down, which relieves pressure on the knees.

The brace works by stabilizing the knee joint, keeping it in proper alignment and redistributing compressive knee forces away from the affected part of the knee to the healthy part. This spreads the load across a larger surface area, which relieves pain. Less pain allows for more use of the knee, which in turn helps the knee muscles to become stronger.


Although the brace does not cure OA, it is a great brace to wear for everyday activities and mild exercise. Mild means walking, yard work, gentle hiking or running. The brace is not designed to withstand strong impact, so for sports such as hockey or basketball you would need to use a different brace.

The brace is constructed from strong, lightweight, aircraft grade aluminum. It has a contoured inner thigh and calf shell to provide clearance for the other leg. The hinge, which is positioned on the opposite side of the affected knee compartment, is adjustable so that the level of support can be increased or decreased depending on daily requirements.

The memory foam condyle pad telescopes, allowing you to control the knee load up to 6 degrees of correction so, depending on your level of activity, you can control the level of knee flexion and extension.

The brace features quick-release buckles on the four swivel straps. These attach at the front of the brace, making it easy to put on and take off. Hypoallergenic Sili-grips help suspend the brace, and suede padding around the straps stops brace migration as well as increasing comfort levels.

It can be worn over clothing, but is better under clothes as it can migrate if not positioned right next to the skin. If necessary you can buy an undersleeve that would increase your comfort.

The OA Everyday, which is 12 1/2 inches in length, comes in seven sizes and is available in medial or lateral versions. Choose the medial if your osteoarthritis is on the inner side of your knee, and the lateral if it is on the outside part of your knee.

To care for the brace, wash the soft parts by hand with mild detergent, rinse well, and air-dry. Don't put them in the washing machine or dryer. A Teflon-based dry lubricant (like a bicycle chain lubricant) is good for the hinges.

There is a one-year warranty on the frame and hinges, and a six-month warranty on the soft parts.

The OA Everyday represents DonJoy's easiest to use, patient-ready knee osteoarthritis brace and is ideally suited for activities of daily living.
