Story Check Dr. med. Martin Schiweck, knee and hip specialist at Aachen Orthopedics Clinic, treats patients with osteoarthritis of the knee conservatively using orthoses, such as SecuTec OA, and GenuTrain supports. He supported one of Germany’s nationwide wearing tests for the new GenuTrain OA.
- The physician believes that the patient should be at the center of the decision-making process, determining the kind of treatment, i.e. surgical or non-surgical, and the product to be used.
- All the feedback he has so far had from his wearing test patients about the GenuTrain OA has been very positive: they all wanted to keep the product.
- He uses SecuTec OA for pronounced axial misalignments. The physician finds GenuTrain and GenuTrain A3 useful for secondary prevention in young patients, in particular competitive athletes.
