Bledsoe Thruster 2 Unloader Brace
« on: September 13, 2003, 03:52:57 AM »
My Dr wants to put me in a Bledsoe Thruster 2 Unloader Brace while waiting for workmen's comp to approve a meniscus transplant and an HTO.

Has anyone used this brace? Comments, please?

I use one of the Donjoy braces at the moment. I've got their Oadjuster, also an unloader. Unloaders generally do the same thing, regardless of maker, but some apparently are more troublesome than others, and some have a wider range of adjustment. Mine's okay for now, but I definitely want to try another manufacturer, when I can afford it.
