Knee support with patella silicone ring and additional straps

Genumedi plus is a knee support with patella silicone ring. The product is exclusively to be used for the orthotic fitting of the knee and only on intact skin.



Features

Product benefits

  • With additional straps for stabilisation and for improvement of wearing comfort

  • Maximum pressure relief for the patella due to the special inner border for the silicone ring

  • Non-slip system with textured silicone running medially and laterally

  • Also available as made-to-measure


How does it work?/Mode of action

The integrated silicone ring of the Genumedi plus 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.

Donning/fitting instructions

Loosen the two straps. 
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. 
Then close the straps. 
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.

Wearing directions

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 thoroughly
