medi expands its range of supports
The Genumedi PSS is the latest model in medi's knee support range.
The support is used, for example, in the treatment of patella tip syndrome (jumper's knee, runner's knee) or Osgood-Schlatter disease.
Targeted training of the patellar tendon instead of non-use
Studies have shown that regular knee bending exercises on a 25° decline board have positive effects in conservative treatment of patella tip syndrome.1
The exercises are done as a lunge (so-called decline squats, eccentric strength training) on a 25° decline board supplied in every product pack. medi shows you how to train properly.
These training instructions will show you how to strengthen your patellar ligament in the long term with eccentric knee bending exercises – to regain your fitness sooner.
Patella strap to regulate pressure on the patellar ligament; no constriction thanks to the offset strap configuration
Pad system: patellar pad with innovative 3D profile for safe and reliable guidance of the kneecap, and tendon pad with silicone dots to stimulate the patellar ligament
Non-slip for reliable security of fit of the support – during sports as well (non-slip)
Comfort zone for more comfort in wear over the sensitive hollow of the knee – also during sports (no constriction of the soft tissues)
