In short After a sledding accident, Olivia Walliser suffered an isolated partial Stage II tear of the medial collateral ligament on her right knee. She was treated successfully by Dr. med. Anton Sebesta, founder of Basel Sports Clinic, using the GenuTrain S as a conservative measure.
- In cases of a Stage II injury, knee gapping of three to four millimeters can be observed at 30 degrees of flexion during the valgus stress test, but the knee remains stable during extension.
- During non-surgical treatment, a support or brace with guide splints will help. They are designed to prevent lateral movements, while allowing flexion and extension of the knee joint.
- Olivia Walliser “got on very well” with the GenuTrain S. The compression support with lateral hinges “totally stabilized” her.
