|OdrA is a knee orthosis that applies a distraction / rotation effect. As a result, the OdrA relieves the pain due to medial knee compartment osteoarthritis.|
|- Medial joint : increases the distance between upper and lower bands when the leg is extended and leads to a distraction effect between the femur and the tibia. |
|- Lateral joint : shifts back the articular center and causes an outward rotation of the foot. This leads to a decrease of the second peak of the adduction moment during gait.|

The OdrA orthosis must be prescribed by a specialized physician (orthopedic surgeon, PM & R physician, rheumatologist). It is deigned for the symptomatic treatment of the medial compartment arthritis of the knee.
The OdrA orthosis is particularly recommended for patients :
|√ suffering from medial knee compartment osteoarthritis, for a pain which is higher than 40 using the Visual Analogue Scale.|
|√ waiting for knee surgery or who cannot undergo surgery.|
|√ looking for an alternative to drug therapies such as NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).|
|√ looking for more stability. |

The OdrA orthosis is not a corrective orthosis.
The OdrA orthosis should not be used in water.
