The GenuTrain S active support with lateral joint splints supports the knee joint for indications of slight instability, arthritis or osteoarthritis of the knee. An integral, ringshaped pressure cushion (pad) surrounds the kneecap, while the interplay of the knit and the pad provides intermittent compression massage, thereby activating the musculature and stimulating the healing process. The combination of joint bars and a strap system in the GenuTrain S provides added passive support for the knee.
In the GenuTrain S (S for splints), lateral joint splints guide the knee's movements. The bars can be heated and reshaped and can therefore be adjusted to the anatomy of each individual. The joint muscles are stabilized further by the elastic Train Active Knit with its integral pad.
The integral elastic padded ring round the kneecap cannot slip. It helps to position the support correctly and adapts itself to the angle of the knee joint during every movement. This produces a massage effect which activates the surrounding muscular tissue and stimulates circulation. The GenuTrain S, with its medically effective interaction of compression and massage, accelerates the reabsorption of edema and effusions. Muscular control is improved and the knee receives more active support.
