From the age of 40, the first changes in the knee joint very often become apparent. The cartilage shows the first signs of wear and tear. In order to influence this process favourably and to ensure a continued high quality of life, the DAK, together with the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, has launched the "KnieAktiv" health programme.
The new programme is aimed at active DAK-Gesundheit insurees in Berlin with an increased risk of osteoarthritis who are experiencing knee complaints for the first time. With the help of this programme, the quality of life should be improved and the use of painkillers reduced.
If patients take part in "Knee Active", a gait and running analysis is carried out afterwards, whereby the impairment is recorded in detail.
Based on these findings, an individual counselling and training programme is created for the patient.
The application takes place within the framework of a partial inpatient treatment and is then continued at home on the patient's own responsibility.
