  1. 1. Conservative therapy for osteoarthritis

    For the conservative therapy of mild to severe medial or lateral gonarthrosis, the following medical aids from medi are used:

  2. 2. Pre- and post-operative therapy for osteoarthritis

    Preoperative care: When braces are used on a test basis (brace test for unicompartmental relief) before operation (e.g. before corrective osteotomy), both the surgeon and patient receive helpful information about the expected surgical result. This also allows for a better assessment of the postoperative pain reduction.

    Postoperative care:  After surgery dealing with cartilage, cartilage plastic surgery or meniscus refixation, the brace supports the surgical outcome: It unburdens and stabilises the knee.  

  3. Patient information & self-management

    As a osteoarthritis patient, you can do a great deal to reduce pain and improve the treatment outcomes. The keyword here is self-management: Be active in dealing with the disease. For example, eat a healthy diet, lose weight sustainably and take regular physical activity.
