Two-way-strech knee support

 
     
     
 
 
 
 

Indications

all inflammation or strains of the knee including post-arthroscopy and post-surgery
muscle and ligament strains
bursitis
chronic degenerative joint diseases
arthritis and osteoarthritis

 
 

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 compression of the knitted fabric 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 cause the greatest effect 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).

 
 

Features

constructed of light weight, breathable material which makes it comfortable to wear, thus improving patient compliance and therapeutic results
