Knee support for relieving pain at the patellar tendon insertion
The Genumedi PSS is a new knee support for conservative treatment of knee pain caused by patella tip syndrome (jumper’s knee). The knee support with its integrated patellar tendon strap relieves tension on the insertions of the patellar ligament to relieve pain at the tip of the kneecap.
All indications in which a positive effect on the guidance of the patella is necessary, such as:
• patellar tendinitis (Jumper‘s Knee)
• osgood-Schlatter disease
• patellofemoral pain syndrome
Mode of action
• two-part pad system with 3D profile:
— secure guiding of the patella is ensured by the patella pad with 3D profile
— stimulation of the patellar tendon via the tendon pad with 3D profile
— pain reduction
• improvement in proprioception via compressive knit fabric
• the improvement in proprioception supports the body‘s own guidance and stabilizes the joint
Balanced pressure distribution (no cutting into calf area) thanks to the asymmetric strap system (rear strap is positioned slightly lower).
Non-slip: Secure hold due to integrated silicone dot coating.
No cutting-in of the ends of the badage thanks to the unique knitting technique (medi Soft Edge).
Individually adjustable strap system.
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)
