The next generation of the popular, dual-upright Z12 OA design, features an adjustable condyle building up to 6 additional degrees of correction to the brace. The Z12 is ideal for patients with an active lifestyle who may need additional support from a dual upright brace due to ligamentous instability. The new adjustable condyle will allow patients to make minor load adjustments by sliding the loading level through 5 settings. The Z12 frame is made of magnesium - our lightest-weight OA brace.
