Agilium Freestep

Clinically proven solution for knee pain

The Agilium Freestep is a clinically proven solution for everyday pain relief from knee osteoarthritis that also eliminates common concerns many patients have with traditional knee braces.

Over 6,000 people worldwide are living with less pain and more life thanks to the Ottobock Agilium Freestep. David went from 6 to 8 pain pills were day to 6-8 pain pills per week! And Heike never even considered a knee brace; she says, “knee braces are too bulky and uncomfortable.”

Key features:

  • Clinically proven design
  • Application in the shoe instead of around the knee joint
  • Simplified single strap application
  • Low-profile design
  • Lightweight materials

Application in the shoe

The Agilium Freestep is applied at the foot, inside the shoe, instead of around the knee. The Agilium Freestep controls the foot and ankle joint to off-load the knee joint, while knee braces use force and pressure to off-load the knee joint. These forces, used in knee braces, create challenges that typically result in discontinuation of the device.

Clinically proven design

The Agilium Freestep is clinically proven to provide pain relief from knee osteoarthritis and reduce joint stiffness. While just as effective as some knee braces, the Agilium Freestep takes an indirect approach, using an ankle-foot design to shift the weight bearing line to a healthy area of cartilage for pain relief.

Low-profile design

Traditional knee braces can be bulky and awkward. Depending on the knee brace design, some may also make contact with the opposing leg. The slim design of the Agilium Freestep hugs the lower leg and leaves the knee joint free to move without limitations.

Lightweight materials

The lightweight yet durable construction combines the latest textile technology with the quality you expect from Ottobock. All of the soft materials can easily be removed and washed to support your everyday use.

Simplified strapping

Traditional knee braces often have multiple straps that create complexity when applying and using the brace. The Agilium Freestep is applied like a shoe and uses a single strap to reduce complexity and get you on your way without hassle.

Is Agilium Freestep right for me?

The Agilium Freestep is designed for medial or lateral knee osteoarthritis. Your physician can provide an exact diagnosis. However, the majority of folks with knee osteoarthritis have medial indication. This means the bones of the joint are creating pressure on the inside of the knee joint. Patients with this condition are typically bow-legged. Alternatively, a small percentage of patients have lateral knee osteoarthritis; meaning their bones rub on the outside of the knee joint. These patients are often knock-kneed.
