JUMPER KNNE STRAP WITH SILICONE INSERT
„Jumper’s knee” – patellar tendinopathy
Some of the sports are connected with jumping (e.g. basketball, volleyball, long jump or triple jump). “Jumper’s knee”, also known as patellar tendonitis or patellar tendinopathy, is an inflammation or injury of the patellar tendon, the cord-like tissue that joins the patella (kneecap) to the tibia (shin bone). Jumper’s knee is an overuse injury, when repeated movements cause tissue damage or irritation in shin bone area. The patients feel pain in the anterior knee, especially while jumping. The condition doesn’t occur not only in jumping but everybody can suffer from this in every sport activity.
Treatment of the patellar tendonitis bases on off-loading of the patella tendon and exercises. What’s more, this non-operative treatment has better results than surgery1..
In order to this, we created our patella strap AS-P/RZ with silicone insert for dampening vibration.
Jumper knee strap AS-P/RZ was created under the rule called MiniMax (minimum device, maximum effect). It’s anatomic-shaped brace with silicone insert in universal size. The brace stabilizes and off-loads the patella tendon, providing compression. It allows to reduce pain and patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS).
Silicone insert in AS-P/RZ kneecap brace provides dampening therapeutic vibration with your every step and keep the strap in place.
Our AS-P/RZ strap supports the kneecap and patellar tendon, what limits the stress of the quadriceps on the shin bone and reduces pain. It allows to prevent against the chondromalacia patellae (CMP).
Our jumper knee strap is made of skin-friendly material. It’s universal size and fits for both legs.

MiniMax is the first principle of REH4MAT that focuses on maximum effect in minimum device. Designing of our braces, we focus heavily on their effectiveness where, aside from functionality, the size of braces is significant. Unique constructions of our devices provide maximum safety and protection with little sizes. It allows to use comfortably our braces in sport shoes or under clothes.
