If it works, it could indeed accelerate the recovery for anyone suffering from meniscus damage.

Could be a scam, but I'm wondering if any of you ever used it, or heard about someone (playing any sports) who used it. Anyone? Thanks.
An easy way to help injuries heal through increased blood flow is to use very light weights at slow rep speeds. For the knee do leg extensions with a very light weight at a rep speed of at least 6 seconds up and 6 seconds down. This will really increase blood flow to the knee and help it heal.
