Supports for the knee from medi: Strain relief and stabilisation for the knee joint
Anyone who suffers from instability in the knee joint, patella tip syndrome, joint effusion, swelling, irritation, gonarthrosis, arthritis or pain in the knee (to name a few examples) should share this information with their attending physician. The latter will decide on the use of a knee support and, if necessary, issue a prescription.
The compressive knit of the medi knee supports can improve proprioception (self-perception). This promotes the body's own guidance and stabilisation of the joint.
Knee supports facilitate the reduction of swelling (oedema, haematoma) through the integrated 3D silicone pad. Due to the open edging of the patella silicone ring, they also provide a noticeably lower amount of pressure on the kneecap.
Thanks to breathable and skin-friendly materials, users of medi knee supports experience great wearing comfort: The Comfort Zone with a ribbed structure and a diamond centre in the back of the knee offers a pleasant wearing comfort.
medi knee supports are easy to put on and stay securely on the leg thanks to the slip-stop system.
