Reviscon in the Joint Cavity
Masks the pain receptors by HA layer it forms.
Helps the stimulation of new HA synthesis by the stimulation of synoviacytes and chondrocytes.
Because of its filter function; while it is allowing the passage of cells that is needed by cartilage, synovium and synovial fluid; it prevents the infiltration of inflammatory cells.
By its shock-absorbing effect, it smooths the force of sudden movement and preserves the joint
Because of its barrier function, it prevents the destructive molecules such as proteases, pro-inflammatory cytokines and free oxygen radicals to reach cartilage and synovium
Contributes the preservation and construction of joint cartilage and synovial membrane.
