WHY SHOULD I WEAR A KNEE SUPPORT DURING ATHLETICS?
Track and field or athletics injuries are very common as the body is pushed to the limit, often in short, sharp spurts.
The most common types of knee injuries when performing athletics include ACL, MCL and LCL injuries, dislocated shoulder, thigh strain, knee ligament tear and bursitis knee.
Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or knee support can minimise your chances of injury by providing enhanced stability, medical-grade compression and assist to reduce unwanted lateral knee movement.
Bauerfeind knee braces help to promote blood flow with the use of medical grade compression, something not found when using cheap neoprene sleeves and braces. Protect your knee joints so you can nail your high jump, long jump, sprints and hurdles.
OLYMPIAN GYMNAST USES SECUTEC GENU TO TREAT KNEE INJURY
Inspirational Olympian German gymnast, Toba Andreas, who ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his knee during an awkward landing at a Mens Team event and yet continued for his team to qualify for the finals has utilised Bauerfeind products to get back in the game.
Take a look Toba wearing the SecuTec Genu to treat his torn collateral ligament. The SecuTec Genu provides stability for ruptured cruciate ligaments using a hard-frame orthosis. The additional hinge allows adjustment of angles to immobilise the leg for faster healing.

A torn ligament, collateral ligament injury or operation on the meniscus can mean that the knee joint needs to be stabilised externally for some time. The SecuTec Genu gives you a great feeling of stability, without restricting your mobility. So you can do what you love 🤸♀️🤾🏽♂️. #motionislife 📸 @andy_toba . . . . . . #bauerfeindsports #sports #football #training #bauerfeindaustralia #fitness #supports #braces #shoulder #pain #australia #sydney #retail #bauerfeind #comfort #workout #wrist #knee #brace #shop #insoles #compressions #germanmade #gym #sportswear #running #gymnastics
