Are you a patient with painful knee osteoarthritis below the age of 65 years? Return to your active life after a six weeks treatment with the KneeReviver.

Patients diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis, not responding to conservative therapy, probably already indicated for a knee replacement, under the age of 65 years old.
This unloading treatment is studied in medical research groups for > 10 years, resulting in knee joint preservation, decrease of pain, increase of function, and postponing a knee replacement.

From Rochester USA, the Dutch professor of Regenerative Medicine Daniël Saris makes a remarkably optimistic sound.
It is indeed possible to grow cartilage, he says. He is doing research about a technique for local cartilage defects first at the UMC Utrecht, now at Mayo Clinic USA.
