Patella Knee Strap

WHAT IS A PATELLA KNEE STRAP USED FOR?

 

The patella is the front-part of the knee where the kneecap is located. A patella knee strap provides targeted support and relief for the patellar tendon area.

The patella region of the knee can often swell up, irritate and cause knee pain due to overuse of the knee muscles. Usually contact sports and running are the major causes of patella pain.

Conditions such as patella tendonitis, patellofemoral pain syndrome, patellar chondropathy, patellar tip sydrome and runner's knee can cause irritation of the patella which can be supported by a patella knee strap. 

Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the symptoms of patella tendonitis to provide support and stability. 

Bauerfeind's Genupoint is a patella knee strap which provides targeted relief of the patellar tendon. The viscoelastic pad integrated in the knee strap has four pressure points and frictional nubs which provide targeted compression and guide the patella during movement. 

Take a look at the unboxing video of the Genupoint Knee Strap which shows how to wear the knee strap around your patella.

It is important to achieve the perfect fit and ensure the viscoelastic pad is placed correctly under the knee joint for maximum benefit for the pain relief of the patella tendon.

      HOW TO TREAT PAIN CAUSED BY PATELLA TENDONITIS?

      • Stop the activity the triggered the pain, and rest the area. Trying to ‘work through’ the pain will only make your symptoms worse and delay healing.
      • Severe or persistent pain should be investigated by your doctor.
      • Apply the R.I.C.E treatment to alleviate the pain symptoms.
      • To prevent knee injuries in the future, work on strengthening your patella muscles through exercises. This can also assist in pain relief. 
      • Often bad technique is the cause behind knee injuries. We recommend improving your technique and focusing on your form while doing exercises, especially with weights.
