Genumedi® PSSSporty knee support with patellar strap
- No constriction due to offset strap configuration
- Two-part pad system
- Safe grip due to integrated silicone dot coating
Optimum combination of tried-and-tested knee support and patellar support strap
Genumedi PSS is a knee support for reliable guidance and stabilisation of the knee joint and to relieve tension on the patellar ligament (tendon) insertion. The compressive knit improves proprioception and sensorimotor function of the knee. The tendon pad with silicone dot coating stimulates the patellar ligament.
- Two-part pad system for easy patellar guidance and specific reduction of pressure and tension at the tip of the patella and the tibial tuberosity
- Offset strap system for balanced pressure distribution
- Pressure exerted by the integrated silicone dot coating stimulates proprioception to increase quadriceps muscle tone
- Proprioceptive compression for reliable guidance and stabilisation of the joints
- Contains Semi Rigid Material
The silicone pads in the Genumedi PSS relieve the pressure on the kneecap and, in conjunction with the knitted fabric's compression, produce a massaging effect. This effect encourages circulation through the joint and therefore helps reduce swelling and effusions and alleviate irritation and pain. It simultaneously helps improve muscular control and the body's own stabilisation of the knee joint. The pressure applied by the additional belt strap and the pad under it reduces tension on the patellar tendon thus creating relief for the tendon insertions and alleviating pain.
Supports are most beneficial during physical activity.
Open the two belt straps.
Hold the support with the thumb on the inside at the top end of the side stabilisation rods.
Pull the support over the knee in such a way that the two silicon pads cover the centre of the kneecap without applying any pressure. Make sure when positioning the support that the smaller pad (tendon pad) is located below the kneecap over the patellar tendon.
Now close the front belt strap with your leg slightly bent. Check when doing so that this strap runs over the small pad.
Then close the rear belt strap.
The belt may be cut to the individually required length. To this end, open the Velcro fasteners at the end of the belt and shorten it accordingly.
Then check the support's position again.
To remove it, first open the two belt straps. Then reach into the support from the bottom end and pull downwards.
Please take care that trained staff instruct you when putting on the support for the first time.
