  Genumedi  
  Knee support with patella silicone ring  
     
     
 
 
 
 

Indications

slight instability of the knee joint
articular effusions and swellings
chronic post-operative and post-traumatic inflammation
osteoarthritis and arthritis
patello femoral pain syndrome

 
 

Contra-indications

diseases or injuries of the skin in the area of use, especially with inflammatory symptoms (excessive warming, swelling or reddening)

sensitivity and perfusion disorders of the legs (e.g. in the case of diabetes)

lymph outflow disorders, as well as undiagnosed swellings of soft tissues, apart from the area of use

 
 

Mode of action

The integrated silicone ring of the Genumedi reduces stress on the kneecap. Together with the compression of the knitted fabric, it causes a massage effect. This enhances perfusion of the joint and decreases swelling and effusion. Irritation and pain are alleviated. At the same time, muscular control and inherent stabilisation of the knee joint are improved.

Supports are most beneficial during physical activity. The support can in principle be worn throughout the day. This must depend on how comfortable the wearer is. Moreover, the knee may not be bent by more than 70° when sitting. The support should be removed for long breaks (e.g. long periods sitting, long drives or sleeping).

The support is suitable for use in water. After use, please rinse thoroughly.

 
 

Features

 
open inner border of the silicone patellar ring reduces contact pressure on the kneecap during movement.
 
integrated silicone dot coating guarantees non-slip positioning of the knee support.

three versions of Genumedi to meet requirements of different leg shapes and proportions:

Genumedi standard for standard leg proportions

Genumedi extra-wide for disproportionate thigh circumferences.

Genumedi made-to-measure
