Assessment and fitting of off-the-shelf and customised Ossur knee braces.
Based on their quality and patient outcomes, Ossur are global leaders in non-invasive orthopaedics. We are proud to be a preferred provider and fitting clinic for their off-the-shelf and customised knee braces.
The Unloader One knee brace can be used for uni-compartment osteoarthtritis (OA). Over 8 years of research demonstrates the positive effects it has for people with OA knee pain, often delaying or even avoiding surgery in many cases.
We also fit knee braces following meniscal, cartilage or ligament injury, or as a preventative measure if you are involved in high impact/risk sport e.g. motor cross, wake boarding, skiing.
The appropriate brace will be chosen based on your clinical assessment. Most people are fitted with an off-the-shelf brace which can be taken away that same day, if the brace is in stock. Otherwise, one may need to be ordered for you and fitted at a later date (usually within 5 working days).
If your measurements are not quite standard, we will help you to order a customised brace made entirely to fit you. Delivery and fitting for this option is usually within 15 days.
No, you do not need a referral for a Ossur knee brace. It is helpful for us to know about the specific injury or condition you have so please bring along any consultant letters or scans.
AXA PPP fund the Unloader One knee brace for specific OA knee conditions; you can phone and speak to them to find out more details.
Ossur set the price for all clinics in the UK. The price is dependent upon the brace and whether it is off-the-shelf or customised for example:
Unloader One: £599
Unloader One customised: £799
CTi customised: £699
We can provide you with more price information during your appointment.

This depends on what your condition or injury is; the physiotherapist will discuss it with you at the end of your appointment.
As part of our partnership with Ossur, we can offer support and advice in case a part breaks, you need further help with how to put it on or it does not relieve any of your pain.
As part of a complete treatment plan, most people also benefit from a rehabilitation programme to help improve their movement and strength during recovery. This is also important when managing a chronic condition such as OA. Specific exercise training can also help to reduce your risk of injury.
If you do not already have a preventative or rehabilitation programme, we can help you book a follow-up appointment.
