Knee pain is the most common joint pain in the whole body, ranging from a mild niggle now to agonising pain with each step. So how do you effectively take care of the knee to reduce pain, prevent injury and recover more effectively?
One way, is a knee brace. And today we want to shine the spotlight on one of our best. The GenuTrain.
Managing knee pain
There are a number of ways to reduce knee pain, such as physiotherapy, exercise, stretching, changes to diet and lifestyle and medication.
However, wearing a medical-grade support like the GenuTrain means you're able to increase the effectiveness of each of these treatments while also giving your knee the most consistent support it can get day to day.
With literally hundreds of different knee supports out there, the question “what makes the GenuTrain different?” is a very valid one.
Read on to learn how our state of the art knee brace has been refined through eight generations over the past 40 years to give you the very best in German engineering.
Product Spotlight: GenuTrain
Feature: Omega pad
The Omega pad is one of the most innovative developments in knee bracing and supports in the past 50 years. In its eighth iteration, the special gel support is designed to sit around the knee cap, made from a special viscoelastic compound that flexes and moves with the knee at any movement while still retaining its original shape.
The gel acts to soothe inflamed tissue and reduce swelling, as well as dampening shock to the knee itself.
In addition to this, there are four special knobbed massage pads built into the lower half of the pad, consisting of
Two “meniscus wings” that sit along the front of the meniscus on both sides, easing tension and relieving pain.
Two proprioceptive pads that target the Hoffa fat pad; a special part of your knee that provides neuromuscular feedback to the brain and helps with recovery and stability of the knee.
Feature: Compression weave
Bauerfeind have spent the past 90 years researching, revising and defining what compression means. The GenuTrain uses a special flat-knit weave that targets each particular muscle with the right amount of pressure to activate the muscle and boost blood-flow.
As this happens, the compression stabilises the muscles themselves, minimising excess vibration and fatigue. The cotton weave blend and design allows for excellent heat venting so the knee stays cool and comfortable.
The enhanced circulation and muscle soothing action of this compressive weave means it’s perfect not just for wear during activity and exercise, but recovery and day to day wear as well.
Feature: Perfect anatomic fit
The GenuTrain has a wide measurement system based off over half a million knees to determine the average shape and size of the human knee, no matter the age, sex or history of the person wearing it.
This is why we have an extensive sizing system, with 13 different sizes.
The perfect anatomical fit is crucial for the comfort of the patient, effectiveness of the support and long-lasting benefits of the brace itself. The construction of the GenuTrain in this regard is unparalleled, with the shape of the brace itself contoured to your knee, so it’s not you fitting into the brace, it’s the brace fitting around you.
