ClimaFlex_OA_04_05_2016 (33)_hiresSAN DIEGO, CA, July 7, 2016 DJO Global, Inc., a leading global provider of medical technologies designed to get and keep people moving, today launched the Clima-Flex™ OA Knee Brace from DonJoy, offering a new level of comfortable cooling relief through compression and offloading for patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis knee pain.

Clima-Flex OA features new DonJoy C-6 Material Technology™ to deliver breathable, moisture-wicking comfort that’s soft to the touch, temperature controlled and incorporates all-natural antimicrobial features. Keyless offloading empowers patients with on-the-fly adjustment for convenient, comforting relief from OA knee pain.

“DonJoy pioneered the concept of functional knee bracing over 30 years ago and has led the profession of performance ever since,” said Steve Ingel, President of the Bracing and Vascular division of  DJO Global. “Today, as part of the DJO Global family of brands, DonJoy continues to push the envelope of innovation. New technologies like C-6 Material in the Clima-Flex OA brace result in world-class products that deliver complete confidence both for those who wear DonJoy braces and for those who prescribe them. Clima-Flex OA offers a sleek design that’s comfortable, cooling and ideal for light activities such as walking, golf or hiking.”

“One of the biggest challenges for patients who suffer with the pain of knee OA is finding a brace that is comfortable to wear all day and can be worn under clothes. Adding to our lineup of OA braces that patients will wear, Clima-Flex OA provides the soothing comfort OA patients need to relieve pain and stay on the move toward a healthier lifestyle,” Ingel said.

The Clima-Flex OA launch follows the introduction last year of DonJoy’s revolutionary new A22 Brace for ACL injuries. The lightweight, low-profile titanium brace provides unrivaled performance for competitors who need advanced protection combined with maximum mobility.
