Don’t let knee pain keep you from your New Years resolution!

Do your knees feel weak, painful or swollen after hitting your exercise routine in the New Year? Don’t suffer any longer; come try a Bauerfeind Genutrain knee brace! This knee brace offers medical grade compression which can eliminate any pesky swelling while boosting your knee stability.  Cushioning around the kneecap by the by newly redesigned Omega pad offers incomparable comfort and pressure relief of your kneecap.

Benefits to medical grade compression in a knee brace enhances  pain free flexibility and range of motion with the added warm factor for those cold weather sports. The slim fitting brace is designed to fit snug next to skin allowing the user to wear leggings or pants comfortably overtop.

The Genutrain is made from an anatomically knitted breathable fabric with visco-elastic inserts to promote circulation and healing. The anatomically correct brace is knitted in a way that as your muscles contract and relax, the pressure rises and falls similar to a self massage which helps to reduce swelling.

This brace doesn’t come in your standard small, medium or large. The Genutrain has specific measuring points that we utilize to access a size range of 0-6 to fit all shapes and sizes of legs. Custom is available if required.

The breathability of the Genutrain is great for all season activities. It keeps you warm in the winter and wicks away sweat in the summer; which allows the brace to stay in place and comfortable throughout your activity.

The Genutrain is designed for multiple indications or injuries such as:

  • Feeling of instability
  • Strains or sprains
  • Recurrent knee pain
  • Pre and post-op swelling
  • Osgood-Schlatter’s disease
  • Arthritis/Osteoarthritis
