Interesting little device...

Depending on the location of the tear and severity, sometimes meniscal tears can heal by themselves.

Personal experience: I tore my lateral meniscus (can't remember exactly where, and my MRI film/reports are somewhere...) along with three other ligaments in my knee. Did some pre-surgical rehab. Post op debrief and surgeon said he didn't need to repair the meniscus as it healed itself. No problems since.

Something else to consider. Reducing compensatory muscle spasms/knots/restrictions, trigger points, and correcting possible misalignments of the pelvis may also reduce the pain caused by meniscal tears.
