Minnesota’s OrthoCor gets good review for Active Knee System on Dr. Oz Show

Minnesota’s OrthoCor Medical may have won U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for a line of heat-and-cold wraps for knee and back pain three months ago, but it’s the company’s knee brace system that’s getting all the buzz right now.

The Active Knee System was featured on The Dr. Oz Show Wednesday in a segment on magnetic therapy for treating pain, along with BioElectronics’ ActiPatch. Dr. William Pawluk, a former assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University and expert in magnetic field therapy, lauded the FDA-approved device as effective for treating knee pain because of its dual approach, using heat and electromagnetic waves to combat swelling and pain in the joint.
