Is It Right For You
Osteoarthritis of the Knee
BioniCare is a non-invasive, non-drug alternative for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee. It treats the underlying cause of the disease by stimulating the joint tissue and improving the overall health of the joint. It does not affect the gastrointestinal tract, kidneys or liver and does not carry the risk of infection. Patients using BioniCare report decreased pain, decreased joint stiffness, improved range of motion and often reduce their NSAID intake. BioniCare is a long-term solution for a degenerative (long-term) disease. After 2250 hours of use, the effect of the device is the same as a total knee replacement, without the risks of surgery. The only risk of the BioniCare device is a possible skin irritation from the use of the electrodes.
Additionally, since the BioniCare device is integrated into the OActive “unloader” brace, the brace will reduce the impact of weight bearing and reduce the patient’s pain. This helps get the patient back to activities of daily living and potentially enables them to participate in an exercise program with minimal discomfort. The brace provides an immediate benefit while the BioniCare provides a slower-acting, longer-lasting effect. The combination of these two products offers maximum benefit with minimal risk.
