Milton, Canada, April 21, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- After experiencing great success within the U.S. market, VQ Orthocare, the specialists behind the innovative BioniCare Knee System are now releasing their product in Canada. The Knee System combines a patented signalling device with an OActive Knee Brace for relieving pain from osteoarthritis.
In the U.S., the Center for Disease Control has reported that more than 46 million Americans suffer from the effects of some form of arthritis. The most common of which is osteoarthritis of the knee. Study after study has shown that the BioniCare Knee System holds great potential as a non-invasive alternative to surgery for these patients. One study for example showed that patients with osteoarthritis, who utilized the BioniCare Knee System for 530 hours or 3 months of usage, actually experienced the same level of pain relief as those who had undergone a total knee replacement. A similar study also showed that when candidates for knee replacement surgery used the product for an average of 11 months, they were able to avoid having to undergo the surgery for at least four years.
This leading-class system is designed primarily for those who are suffering from moderate to severe forms of osteoarthritis. So far, 80,000 people across the United States have been treated using the BioniCare Knee System with no side-effects reported from the product’s use. And now, patients in Canada will be able to speak to their own personal healthcare professional about the possibility of utilizing this innovative product to help them get back to a normal, healthy and mobile lifestyle.
