Bericht zu meinem Gehschweber

Translated title of the contribution: Experiences with my floater

Research output: Non-print formWebsite / Web publication


I start with a short summary of what lead me to use a "floater", since it may be of interest also to others with similar problems to the ones I was confronted with.
I have been suffering since 2018 with strong pains in my left knee due to age related atrophy. A minor operation I had in May 2019 did not really help much, and a major operation (to replace the whole knee) was impossible for a long time due to medication I had to take for other reasons. Thus, a "conservative treatment" like exercises, using a home trainer etc. seemed the only alternative. My doctor recommended that I should not use any device like a motorozed rollator or wheelchair, since my only chance to avaiod a major operation was to stay reasonably fit and mobile.
