A survey performed in 2019 among 560 users with knee joint pain (survey available here) shows that for more than 90% of them, these pain was strongly reduced or even eradicated. The results are similar for muscle pain. Last but not least, more than 40% of users consider that Ski~Mojo also relieves back and hips. Thus, and even if Ski~Mojo is not a medical device (just like e-bike for example), Ski~Mojo users with knee or leg pathologies are relieved in their skiing practice. So, it’s up to you to test now …
I have knee ligament/cartilage trouble, will it help ?
Almost certainly, this is what the Ski~Mojo is best at. It will benefit you in two main ways:
- Firstly, on our recommended settings, the Ski~Mojo will reduce the load your knees have to endure by around 33% thus reducing the stress your knees are subjected to. This will allow you to be more in control of your skis, reducing the risk of further injury and reducing or eliminating any pain or discomfort that you may normally be accustom to.
- Secondly, the Ski~Mojo is a shock absorbing suspension system. Normally when skiing you have constant “chatter” going through your knees which can cause irritation and subsequent swelling of the knee. The Ski~Mojo absorbs this chatter and any compressions.
I have hip/back trouble, will it help me?
Almost certainly, as normally when skiing you get constant “chatter” going through your whole body; as the Ski~Mojo is a shock absorbing suspension system it reduces the stress and vibration/jolting that your back and hips have to endure.
The Ski~Mojo also supports you in a good posture as it mimics an ergonomical (or kneeling) chair, which also takes strain from the back.
“I purchased the ski mojo at the end of a test day. My pain caused by arthritis and being a little overweight disappeared instantly, despite me skiing longer. As a surgeon, I used to tell patients to stop skiing after e knee replacement, but now I understand how the Ski~Mojo works, I encourage them to ski again, as a long as they use a Ski~Mojo. I believe it’s a huge technical progress and will help a lot of skiers“.
