Story Check Dr. med. Ralf Peter Schnorr supports a “periarticular perspective, rather than a purely mechanical one” when it comes to osteoarthritis of the knee. Combined with orthobiological processes of regenerative medicine, the GenuTrain OA supports his treatment approach.
- The knee orthosis is used in cases of one-sided joint destruction or for the one-sided relief of the menisci when injuries have occurred.
- The orthopedist considers this option of axial correction as a joint stimulation to promote regeneration. Additionally, cartilage shear stress is reduced.
- In the case of a patient with axial misalignment who also suffered from Parkinson’s disease, the GenuTrain OA was the focus of functional treatment.
