Sore stiff knees, legs that give out with the slightest twist, pain up and down stairs or just plain arthritis. Issues like these affect a wide range of the population on a daily basis, making even the most basic tasks painful and frustrating.
Wearing a knee brace to help combat these symptoms and protect your knee is one of the best ways to manage the problem, especially when combined with physiotherapy, targeted exercises and medication when necessary.
The GenuTrain S hinged knee support is an anatomically contoured knee brace that stabilises and supports the knee, ideal for treating a wide range of issues, including;
- Moderate arthritis
- Ligament strains and tears
- Older ligament ruptures
- Knee instability
- Meniscus tears and strains
- Joint swelling
What is a hinged knee brace?
The GenuTrain S has two anatomically shaped hinged struts that sit on either side of the knee. The hinge itself is designed to sit at the mechanical point of movement on the knee, allowing for regular movement of the knee while preventing buckling or over-rotation.
The lightweight plastic construction makes it perfect for sports, with a fabric weave covering all rigid parts of the brace so you don’t have to worry.
Hinged knee braces also act to protect the ligaments in the knee and prevent over-straining, perfect for recovery as well as prevention.

How dynamic strapping helps
The GenuTrain S have four adjustable straps, top, bottom, front and back. These straps perform several key functions for a range of activities.
- Muscle activation: By tightening the strap firmly against active muscles like your quads and calves during exercise, you get more power out of each muscle, taking the strain off the knee joint.
- Firmer stability: The straps can be tightened to increase stability, so whether the knee is wobbly now and then, or buckles at the slightest breeze, you can adjust it accordingly.
- Accommodating fit: The strapping allows for a firmer tighter fit for those with less common knee shapes.
Compressive weave for the ultimate fit
Like all our knee supports, the GenuTrain S uses a special flat-knit weave to provide high medical-grade compression to the knee and it’s surrounding muscles.
The unique design of this weave means that each part of the knee is compressed at varying levels, so you get exactly the support you need where you need it.
This works to provide unparalleled pain management, but also helps the surrounding muscles take pressure of the joint and speed up recovery.
Why choose the GenuTrain S?
The GenuTrain S is the best hinged knee support you can get before going fully rigid, and is the perfect blend of active support and medical brace.
Most conditions that affect the knee don’t exist alone, and those with ligament or meniscus issues often develop arthritis faster, and vice versa.
With a firm but lightweight comfortable brace like the GenuTrain S, you have the best support on your side to get moving without worry about pain or instability.
