How does it work?/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
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).
If you suffer excessive pain or discomfort during wear, please take off
the product immediately and contact your doctor or specialised shop.
The support is suitable for use in water. After use, please rinse
Grasp the support with the thumb on the internal upper end of the lateral knob adhesive bands. Pull the support over the knee in such a way that the silicone ring covers the kneecap centrally and free of pressure. To take off the support, grasp the lower lateral rods and pull it
downwards and away. Please take care that trained staff instruct you when putting on the
support for the first time.

The silicone ring does not need to be removed before washing. (See figs.

Wash the product by hand, preferably using a medi clean detergent,
or in delicate cycle at 30°C using a mild detergent without fabric
