  Genumedi PSS  
  Sporty knee support with integrated patellar strap  
     
     
 
 
Genumedi PSS is a knee support for reliable guidance and stabilisation of the knee joint and to relieve tension on the patellar ligament (tendon) insertion. The compressive knit improves proprioception and sensorimotor function of the knee. The tendon pad with silicone dot coating stimulates the patellar ligament.
 
 
 
 

Indications

patellar tendinitis (Jumper’s Knee)
Osgood-Schlatter disease
patello-femoral pain syndrome
chondropathia patellae
chondromalacia patellae
following injury to the patellar tendon
retropatellar arthrosis
patellar mal-tracking
plica 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 silicone pads in the Genumedi PSS relieve the pressure on the kneecap and, in conjunction with the knitted fabric's compression, produce a massaging effect. This effect encourages circulation through the joint and therefore helps reduce swelling and effusions and alleviate irritation and pain. It simultaneously helps improve muscular control and the body's own stabilisation of the knee joint. The pressure applied by the additional belt strap and the pad under it reduces tension on the patellar tendon thus creating relief for the tendon insertions and alleviating pain.

Supports are most beneficial during physical activity.

   
   
 

Features

 
two-piece strap (front and back) system for individual pressure regulation; front patellar strap regulates the pressure on the patellar tendon
 
offset strap configuration: the front patellar strap is offset from the back gastroc strap to prevent constriction of blood circulation
   
 
 
two-part pad system: bottom tendon pad with silicone dot coating stimulates the patellar tendon whilst upper patellar pad with 3D profile guides the patella
 
made from latex-free, breathable and skin-friendly fabric, comfort zone is knitted over the popliteal of the knee for comfort in everyday wear and during sports
 
proprioceptive compression for reliable guidance and stabilisation of the joints

non-slip - for secure fitting even during sports
