Designed specifically to address “Global” Knee Osteoarthritis.
Surgery is often delayed for Bi & Tricompartmental OA patients: Conservative care guidelines, patient logistical needs, necessary medical and behavioral improvements and the emotional readiness of the patient often cause delays. The Global OA addresses patient pain, provides stability and assists in mobility, helping patients through these times.
