DJO Global's OA Nano knee brace

DJO Global is hoping its OA Nano knee brace can help patients get a leg up on knee replacement surgery.

Calling it a "game-changer," DJO sales & marking director Brian Moore told MassDevice that at 14.2 ounces, the OA nano is the lightest knee brace of its kind in the world. And the Vista, Calif.-based medical device company is hoping more knee pain or osteoarthritis sufferers can use the brace to forgo total knee replacement surgery, possibly for years.
