Knee pain/ Orthosis
Stage-appropriate gonarthrosis therapy
From Bauerfeind Life Magazin
Osteoarthritis is the most commonly occurring joint disease worldwide, but it does not follow a common pattern. For example, people with severe osteoarthritis of the knee (gonarthrosis) can sometimes walk for long distances without any discomfort whatsoever. In addition, sometimes the joint looks normal , while at other times it becomes extensively swollen. The findings and symptoms of gonarthrosis are as different as the people who suffer from it. However, such differences can cause people to question whether the gradual destruction of the joint is really an unstoppable process after all. To them, it seems that knee relief is possible, even if only temporarily.
Gonarthrosis differs among individuals and must be treated in a stage-appropriate manner. Bauerfeind targeted painful areas in mild cases of gonarthrosis when it launched the first generation of GenuTrain back in 1981. The GenuTrain A3 model expanded the proprioceptive effect to cover typical pain-sensitive areas in the knee. A new individually adjustable orthosis is now available to provide relief for those who suffer from advanced gonarthrosis – SecuTec OA. This model for lateral or medial gonarthrosis enables the necessary adjustment of both varus and valgus settings in one product , thereby providing much-needed relief to the painful knee compartment. With its GenuTrain supports and the SecuTec OA model , Bauerfeind is utilizing its expertise in gonarthrosis treatment to achieve a major objective: the preservation of the knee joint.
