The GenuTrain S Pro knee support adds mechanical stability to the knee area. The active support also passively stabilizes the joint with two adjustable joint splints, which are fixed inside and outside at the knee in lateral channels. Depending on indication, a gradual movement limitation for bending and stretching of the knee can be applied. A circular viscoelastic pad protectively surrounds the kneecap and facilitates the correct positioning of the knee support. The pad massages the parapatellar soft tissue during movement. Combined with the intermittent compression of the knitted fabric, it ensures quicker absorption of edemas and effusions, reduces pain and positively influences the sensorimotor function. The knee joint is actively stabilized. The breathable knit of the GenuTrain S Pro is anatomically shaped and sits securely and comfortably. Very elastic edges and soft material at the back of the knee ensure additional wearing comfort.
Secure Freedom of Movement
The anatomically contoured joint splints on the GenuTrain S Pro can be individually adjusted by an orthotist / medical supply retailer and their range of movement can be restricted. By adjusting the hinge, the flexion angle of the knee can be limited to 30°, 60° or 90°. The knee can also be prevented from stretching to its full extent by locking the hinge at 20°. These restrictions are designed to protect the knee and can be lifted in line with the progress of treatment. Together with two inelastic straps on the upper and lower leg, the joint splints provide secure support and relieve the collateral ligaments. The knee is guided during movement and its freedom of movement is kept within safe limits. Wearing this support can thus compensate for any mild to moderate instability, for example due to osteoarthritis of the knee, while providing optimum stability for ligaments weakened by arthritis.
Activation of Sensorimotor Processes
The integrated elastic pressure cushion (pad) wraps around the kneecap to protect it and helps to position the support correctly. During movement, a massage effect is generated by the distortion of the pad and the compressing knit, which activates the surrounding muscles and stimulates circulation. This helps to relieve pain and reduce swelling more quickly. The support also activates sensorimotor processes which improve muscle control. As well as providing passive stabilization for the knee, it therefore provides more active support too.
