Regardless of whether you are applying compression stockings to your legs or you’re helping someone else put on and take off theirs, this applicator makes rolling on and rolling off stockings a much simpler process.

Stride-OA-Knee-Brace

The Stride OA is an interesting knee brace.  This knee brace is designed to provide knee pain relief from osteoarthritis.

What makes this brace unique is that it is always applied to the lateral side of the leg (it is always on the outside).  This means there isn’t any hardware, like hinges or thigh shells, rubbing between anyone’s legs.  This is a big deal for people whose thighs are close together.  This knee brace will provide pain relief for Knee OA.  It is lightweight and low-profile.

The Stride OA should be fit by a certified orthotist.
