The Alger Unloader is unique in that it’s adjustable and one size fits all design allows the device to be readily available to physicians and patients in clinic.  

The ultimate goal of the Alger Unloader is to improve surgical outcomes and promote wound healing by eliminating non-compliant weight bearing. 

The device is mutually beneficial to both physician and patient as it allows patients to complete activities of daily living with greater ease, while ensuring non-weight bearing compliance.  

This device is suitable for anyone and is a welcomed addition during post operative rehabilitation by patients.   The Alger Unloader is specifically useful for high risk patients with compromised healing capacity and geriatric patients that struggle with the use of ambulatory aids.  

This Alger Unloader can be reapplied when the patient requires cast changes.

What are physicians saying?

I have been using custom stirrups in my practice for years.  To me, using a stirrup to ensure success for my patients is essential. Patients appreciate having the device to maintain their independence post operatively. Having the Adjustable Alger Unloader now readily available in the hospital means easy access to this device on a daily basis. From elective surgery to geriatric fractures it’s an excellent non-weight bearing solution.
