Introduction to the JR OA Off-loader knee brace
Designed and developed by Roger Wolfson and Associates
Testimonial from Roger Wolfson himself
“My name is Roger Wolfson. In my youth I was a keen judoka. I even represented south Africa in the 1977, 1981 and 1985 World Maccabi games.
Unfortunately, knees don’t do well in a body contact sport such as Judo. Since 2008 my right knee had been getting progressively worse and in that same year I was due for knee replacement surgery. Fortunately the surgeon did not want to operate as I had recently been given a cortisone injection in my knee to help reduce pain.
As you might be aware, cortisone and joint surgery can easily lead to sepsis. I could not walk up or down stairs. I could not drive for long distances . I then decided to make my own knee brace and the rest is history. Now, I go to gym on a regular basis and I only wear the brace once a day for 30 minutes. It has saved me from a lot of pain, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of rands I have saved in medical expenses. At Roger Wolfson and Associates we can do the same for you.”
The JR OA Off-loader knee brace was designed to cater for medical conditions such as osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is usually caused by a lack of joint space. The JR OA Off-loader orthosis was designed to absorb the pressure from the painful part of the knee by loading the pressure to the good part of the injured knee. The JR OA Offloader orthosis helps to achieve normal functioning without pain and enables the removal of pain without the need for surgery.
