Product Spotlight: Sports Knee Support

Enjoying a social games of basketball, going for a run or stepping up the gym routine? Getting more involved in sports and exercise can be fun, exciting and refreshing, until we get a niggle in the knee.

Usually it’s not even a big injury, just a twinge, a sharp pain now and then or an ache that comes and goes, but it’s enough to have us slowing down and reluctant to get the joggers back on the next day.

If you’re wanting to take care of that pain, stop that issue from getting worse, or you’re just looking to get that extra bit of power in each step, then look no further than the Sports Knee Support.

Developed as part of the Bauerfeind Performance range, it has been specifically designed to provide additional support during exercise.

What is the sports knee support best for?

The Sports knee support is ideal for mild aches, pains and twinges in the knee, boosting performance as well as helping keep the knee muscles more stable in active movement.

While it utilises many of the same principles as our medical range, it’s designed for shorter periods of wear for sports rather than all day wear.

If you’re looking for something to have on all day, or you need to treat something more serious or ongoing in the knee, then have a look at the GenuTrain range.

Why are putting it in the product spotlight?

1. Combining tech with medical science

Most sport supports and compression available are often either bulky, too hot or just ineffective.

The sports knee support combines the refined aspects of a medical support with the slim fit and active compression of a sports support to give you the best when you’re giving yours.

2. Air knit active compression

The Sports Knee Support uses a special active weave that is designed to compress and activate the muscles that surround your knee joint to get the most out of each movement.

The high medical-grade compression means that it minimises muscle fatigue and excess vibration, so your knee and leg feel fresh and energised even after a full game on the court.

3. Viscoelastic patella pad

Using a similar design to the ground-breaking Omega pad from the GenuTrain, the sports knee support uses a simplified version to surround and stabilise the patella, helping minimise strain on the core of the joint.

This means each and every step is more balanced and evenly distributed, cementing your resilience to overstrain and injury.

It also helps to prevent fluid building up in the joint, so you don’t need to worry about swelling.

4. Focused on the athlete

The sports knee support is designed with athletes and active use in mind.

The lightweight compressive weave is made from an ultra-breathable design, so it not only vents heat more effectively than any other brace, it also utilises a long-lasting moisture wicking action to stop the skin getting sweaty and itchy.

With a slim anatomic design, compression for powerful movement, and a gel pad for resilience, the sports knee support is the perfect addition to any sporting kit.
