Purpose of study: This study is designed to compare the benefits of Synthovial Seven® with a control for patients with healthy knee conditions
Layman’s Explanation: Synthovial Seven® is a pure form of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a special protein that is the normal lubricant in human joints. When present in a joint it can provide a cushion effect and normal mobility. Hyaluronic acid in our joints is a long and complex molecule, and makes a ball shape which resists compression. However, with certain conditions the complex hyaluronic acid molecule breaks down to smaller pieces and is not effective in keeping a ball shape appearance which is necessary for lubrication. Hyaluronic acid is also found in all connecting tissues of the body such as ligaments and tendons where it performs special functions of lubrication and helps orient ligament and tendon fibers
