– DJO Global, Inc., a leading global provider of medical technologies designed to get and keep people moving, today launched OA Reaction TriFit™ Knee brace from DonJoy – the company’s latest OA knee brace designed to provide much needed pain relief to those who suffer from the incurable, degenerative joint disease that affects more than 11 million1 Americans. TriFit, from DonJoy, is designed to provide pain relief to individuals who suffer from moderate to severe Knee OA caused from an active lifestyle (overuse), suffer from excess body weight (obesity) or who are suffering from the effects of aging.
The most common type of arthritis, Knee OA, occurs when the cartilage which provides cushioning within the joints, wears down over time, resulting in bone-on-bone rubbing, which causes stiffness, pain, swelling, decreased mobility and bone spurs. OA is a condition that develops slowly, yet can become increasingly worse over time and may result in additional medical issues such as diabetes, heart disease and vascular problems if not addressed in its early stages. The knee is commonly affected by OA at a cost of $128 billion2 to healthcare.
