The meniscus is a piece of cartilage that provides cushion between the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone). A meniscus injury may include symptoms of pain, swelling and stiffness, and difficulty bending/ straightening the patella (knee).
Meniscus injuries occur when sudden stops and changes in direction take place. This injury is commonly seen in addition to other knee injuries.
Weight-bearing activities are likely to cause increased pain. Avoid impact injuries such as running and jumping.
Many light-weight, hinged bracing options are available to provide additional support the sides of the patella. These braces are intended for daily use and allow functionality while the meniscus heals.

The Stabimed Pro-Short Soft Brace is a functional soft brace made of medi Airtex-material, ideal for those suffering from meniscus (cartilage) injury.
It provides high comfort due to the persistent net material on the back and precisely targeted compression that creates a proprioceptive effect. This improves proprioception to increase the own guidance and stabilization of the knee joint, providing optimal support for individuals with mild to moderate instabilities of the knee joint, mild chronic instabilities, and slight meniscus injuries.
One of the standout features of the Stabimed® pro-Short Soft Brace is its ability to provide collateral stabilization of the knee joint and prevent hyperextension. This makes it an excellent choice for those in the later stages of rehabilitation and returns to sport. It is made from high-quality avional, polyamide, elastane, and PU foam material components and is available in standard colors.
With the Stabimed® pro-Short Soft Brace you can get back to living your life to the fullest. Whether you're an athlete or someone who wants to alleviate discomfort and prevent further injury, this product is designed to help you overcome the challenges of meniscus (cartilage) injury.

This functional soft brace is designed to provide high comfort due to medi Airtex+ material, with precisely targeted compression that creates a proprioceptive effect. It is ideal for those experiencing collateral lesions and instabilities, mild to moderate instabilities of the knee joint, chronic instability, meniscus injuries, structural relaxation, and traumatic or degenerative deformities of the knee joint.
One of the standout features of the Stabimed® is its physioglide hinge that provides a secure fit, making it an excellent choice for anyone seeking stability and support. It is a short knee soft brace with an extension/flexion limit, which provides excellent support for anyone with a meniscus injury.
This soft brace is available in standard colors and different sizes, with high-quality material components made of avional, polyamide, elastane, and PU foam. Whether you're an athlete or someone who wants to alleviate discomfort and prevent further injury, this product is designed to help you overcome the challenges of a meniscus (cartilage) injury.
Genumedi® pro is a modern knee orthosis designed to support and guide the knee joint, providing relief for those experiencing meniscus (cartilage) injury or mild to moderate knee joint instability.
This orthosis is exclusively for orthotic management of the knee and only on intact skin. It features modern easy-glide hinges that stabilize and support the knee joint's natural roll and glide motion. The orthosis also has circular straps at the thigh and lower leg for a secure fit and improved wearing comfort.
One of the most remarkable features of the Genumedi® Pro is its integrated silicone ring that reduces stress on the kneecap. The compression of the knitted fabric, along with the silicone ring, causes a massage effect, enhancing joint perfusion, decreasing swelling and effusion, and alleviating irritation and pain. Additionally, the medially and laterally placed easy-glide joints provide additional stability, while the two straps encircling the thigh and calf provide additional support.
Whether you're an athlete or someone who wants to alleviate pain and prevent further injury, this knee orthosis is designed to help you overcome the challenges of a meniscus (cartilage) injury or mild to moderate instability of the knee joint.

Four ligaments and the patella tendon support the patella (knee). A stretch or tear in the tendon is termed a “strain,” whereas a stretch or tear in one of the four ligaments is termed a “sprain”.
Following a variety of knee surgeries, a post-operational brace may be recommended to promote proper recovery by reducing or immobilizing the patella’s (knee) range of motion.
Dislocation refers to a condition in which the patella (kneecap) is completely displaced from its normal alignment. Majority of patella dislocations occur towards the lateral (outside) side of the knee.
A condition that produces abnormal stresses on the under-surface of the kneecap (patella) due to tracking abnormalities. Pain may vary from mild to severe discomfort.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis in the knee and involves bone-on-bone rubbing of the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone).
The medial collateral ligament (MCL) and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) are located on the medial (inner) and lateral (outer) side of the knee. The attach to the distal (bottom) end of the femur (thighbone) and proximal (top) end of the tibia (shinbone) to play an important role in joint strength and stability. A torn MCL/LCL may include symptoms of pain, swelling and stiffness, tenderness along the inside/outside of the knee and instability.
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) attach at the distal (bottom) end of the femur (thighbone) and proximal (top) end of the tibia (shinbone). The ACL/PCL play an important role in stabilizing the patella (knee).
Synovial fluid lubricates the knee to reduce friction and help the leg swing smoothly. A buildup of fluid may result in a fluid-filled cyst originating on the popliteal bursa (back of the knee). Some individuals may experience no pain, while others may notice swelling and inability to fully flex the knee.
Inflammation below the knee at the point where the tendon from the kneecap (patella) attaches to the shinbone (tibia).
Articular cartilage covers the ends of bones inside a joint. Chondromalacia is most common in the knee and involves the softening and breakdown of this cartilage.
