Genu Arthro orthosis for knee osteoarthritis
Alleviates pain and relieves the knee joint
Active routine despite knee osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis in the knee can be a severe limitation in the everyday life of affected individuals. Pain while climbing stairs and during many other everyday movements is a common symptom.
Osteoarthritis in the knee (gonarthrosis) causes signs of wear on the joint cartilage. This gradual process is associated with pain and limitations in mobility, and should therefore be delayed as long as possible. Using the Genu Arthro provides a solution. The Genu Arthro can alleviate pain since it effectively relieves the affected area in the knee joint. It is comfortable to wear and increases your mobility. The orthosis is made of a breathable material. It is lightweight and discreet to wear under clothing.
The strap pads with easy to grip quick-release closures make handling easier. There is a quick-release closure on the thigh module and on the lower leg module.
Long lever arms ensure optimum force distribution and the gentle build-up of pressure to provide relief for the affected area of the knee joint.
For sustained and effective relief of the affected area in the knee, the orthosis has to fit properly. This is achieved by a slim foot component. It prevents the orthosis from slipping even while walking, so that it is always fully effective.
Benefits at a glance
The Genu Arthro works according to the classic three-point principle. Lever arms relieve the area of the knee joint affected by osteoarthritis. Friction on the joint cartilage surfaces is redistributed, so you can move with less pain during everyday and leisure activities.
User-friendly quick closures make the orthosis easy to put on. Of course, your orthopaedic technician will explain the proper use during your trial fitting. Thanks to its slim design, the very lightweight orthosis is also discreet under clothing.
Comfortable to wear
The breathable SpaceTex frame pads prevent perspiration under the orthosis. You can also sit comfortably with the orthosis at any time, because it has no rigid elements in the rear thigh area.
