Iliotibial Band Friction Syndrome

Iliotibial Band Friction Syndrome manifests over the long term as a result of repeated knee bends and extensions. Irritation and inflammation occur as a result of repeated rubbing between two structures in the knee, on the external part, i.e., the long fibrous band located on the external side of the thigh (iliotibial band) and a protrusion of the femur (thigh bone).

Hot zone

A hot zone is a section of a facility (sometimes an entire facility or even a city district) where there is a high risk of contamination by patients with an infectious disease. All individuals entering a hot zone must respect appropriate protective measures. By analogy, “cold zone” and “warm zone” are used to refer to areas where there is no infected individual or only individuals suspected of having an infection.
