Patellar tracking or a misaligned kneecap – patellar lateralization – anterior knee pain or pain that comes from patellar tip syndrome is treated with a GenuTrain P3 brace. An orthopedic brace has two pressure cushions inserted in the device, and you use a strap to hold it the brace in place. Stabilizing the kneecap, and activating muscles are how this device spurs the healing process.
- A secure kneecap
- Pain relief
- Airflow from the Train knit for wearing comfort
The P3 in the name of the device signifies permanent patella protection because it holds the kneecap securely in place during every movement the wearer makes. The kneecap is secured/centered through a specialty-shaped pad that massages and has high sides holding silicone dots that face inwards. They create pain relief by exerting compression on the Hoffa fat pad. The adjustable pad helps regulate pressure for the kneecap load, and the wearer can increase or decrease pressure as required. Another massage pad is on the outside of the brace and eases pressure on the tendons reducing the outward grab. A reduction in pain and relief is provided through support during regular movements. The pads and the knit create the massage the knee area feels, and it reduces swelling. Activation of the muscles in the affected area helps the wearer feel more confident during regular movements through joint stabilization.
This brace helps treat many conditions:
- Patellofemoral syndrome (chrondropathy/chondromalcia)
- Patellar tip syndrome (tendonitis)
- Kneecap dislocation
- Patella alta
- Anterior knee problems
- An after surgery device for a lateral release operation
