Latest addition to the Agilium portfolio of knee orthoses provides dynamic pain relief for knee osteoarthritis.

AUSTIN, Texas (Nov 1, 2019) – Ottobock HealthCare, a leading global supplier of high-quality medical devices, introduced the latest addition to its orthotics portfolio: The Agilium® Vantage. The Agilium Vantage is a low-profile, wraparound knee brace designed to provide lasting pain relief for patients with mild unicompartmental osteoarthritis (OA).

Building on the Agilium line of OA knee braces, the Agilium Vantage features a lightweight design for everyday use, recreational activities, and sports. Patients can don and doff the brace easily using the four adjustable, numbered straps. The dynamic Y-force strap system unloads the knee with a single pull, while reducing pain and providing stability. An anti-rotation strap keeps the brace in place, and the breathable material prevents popliteal bunching for increased patient compliance and comfort.

The Agilium Vantage is now available for order in three trimmable sizes, allowing practitioners to reduce inventory and save on costs.

“A brace is a key component in the treatment of osteoarthritis-related knee pain,” says Gloria So, Market Manager of Activity and Sports Medicine at Ottobock. “Osteoarthritis is one of the most common joint disorders worldwide, and the Agilium Vantage is designed to improve functional outcomes for patients so they can resume their daily activities with confidence.”

Ottobock offers a comprehensive line of orthotic solutions. For more information about the Agilium Vantage, visit https://www.ottobockus.com/orthotics/solution-overview/agiliumvantagephysician/.
