MEDI 3290103 ELASTIC KNEE SUPPORT WITH OPEN PATELLA
More Information on Product
Genumedi is a knee support with patella silicone ring. The product is exclusively to be used for the orthotic fitting of the knee and only on intact skin.
New fabric technology to allow easy donning and wearing comfort with tried-and-tested stability.
Optimised Comfort Zone with rippled structure and diamond-shaped centre for increased user comfort in the hollow of the knee.
Integrated silicone pad with a 3D profile for a gentle massage.
Noticeably lower pressure on the kneecap thanks to the open border of the patella silicon ring.
Integrated silicone dots for a firm hold.
The support can in principle be worn throughout the day. This must depend on how comfortable the wearer is. Moreover, the knee may not be bent by more than 70° when sitting. The support should be removed for long breaks (e.g. long periods sitting, long drives or sleeping).
If you suffer excessive pain or discomfort during wear, please take off the product immediately and contact your doctor or specialised shop.
The support is suitable for use in water. After use, please rinse thoroughly.
