  Knee support promotes muscular balance in cases of patellar lateralisation  
     
     
 
 
 
 

Indications

patellofemoral pain syndrome in cases of muscular imbalance, patellar maltracking, patellar lateralisation, hypermobile patella

post-operative treatment (patella stabilisation)

 
 

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 compressive support promotes blood flow and, together with the integrated pad around the kneecap, creates a massaging effect that accelerates the reduction of swelling and bruising.

The incorporated pad system lightly guides the kneecap. In addition, patella-guiding muscle structures in the thigh are positively influenced by the massage and the pressure of the pads, so that the guidance of the knee cap is improved. The strap can be used to individually adjust the pressure.

The support achieves the greatest effect during physical activity.

 
 

Features

 
two precisely placed viscoelastic pressure pads relax and activate the vastus lateralis and vastus medialis respectively
 
lateral tension strap allows pressure acting on the vastus lateralis muscle to be adjusted as necessary, so as to reduce its muscle tone and relax it
 
   
the viscoelastic silicone ring surrounding rhe patella is reinforced to promote correct trochlear articulation, aiding in correction of patellar tilt
 

proprioceptive compression for reliable guidance and stabilisation of the joints

non-slip - for secure fitting even during sports
