Knee brace for relieving pain at the pes anserinus tendon insertion (for inner knee pain)
- The complex pad design of the Gemumedi PA support helps to relieve pain and reduce swelling (oedema, haematoma).
Genumedi PA is a knee support for relieving pain at the pes anserinus tendon insertion. The tendon pad with 3D profile stimulates the pes anserinus, which can lead to a reduction in pain. The complex pad design of the Gemumedi PA support helps to relieve pain and reduce swelling (oedema, haematoma). In addition, the laterally reinforced silicone patella pad positively influences the correct patellar guidance. The pressure on the tendon insertion can be individually adjusted with the support's strap. A free resistance band and information about suitable therapy-accompanying exercises are included with every Genumedi PA.
Genumedi PA is used when when a positive effect on the guidance of the patella is necessary. This is, for example, the case in:
- Pes anserine syndrome
- Pes anserine bursitis
- Pes anserine tendinopathy/tendinitis
- Postoperative pain at the area of the pes anserinus tendon insertion
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
The tendon pad stimulates the pes anserinus on the inner side of the knee and relieves the tendon insertion. The asymmetric strap system enables the pad pressure to be individually adjusted for each patient. Two thigh pads help to restore muscle balance; whilst the relaxation pad acts on a trigger point to relax the outer thigh muscle, the activation pad stimulates the inner thigh muscle. A laterally reinforced patellar ring supports guidance of the kneecap. In addition, the open enclosure of the patellar silicone ring minimises the contact pressure on the kneecap.
The extra-soft knitted fabric, the comfort zone with rippled structure and the diamond-shaped centre make the support easy to put on and comfortable to wear, especially in the hollow of the knee, as well as ensuring stability. The lateral grip nubs (Grip-Ons) also make it easier to put on.
The Genumedi PA knee support is made from a compressive fabric, which allows the joint to be stabilised and relieved. Patients experience improved propioception, which, in turn, further promotes guidance and stabilisation of the joint.
Thanks to the special hybrid fabric created from high-tech fibre and natural eucalyptus fibre, Genumedi PA is particularly kind to the skin. The Clima Comfort® technology provides a high level of breathability; it quickly wicks moisture away from the surface of the skin. The integrated Clima Fresh® function has an antibacterial function and prevents odours, so that Genumedi PA is just as suitable for sporting activities as it is for everyday life.
