How Does the GenuTrain P3 Knee Brace Work?
Unlike many basic knee braces, which can offer minimal pain relief during healing, the Bauerfeind GenuTrain P3 Knee Brace utilises a range of supportive features to ensure you get the best relief possible. The P3 in the name 'GenuTrain P3' stands for 'permanent patella protection', as the brace protects the patella (generally known as the kneecap) securely as you move. Please see the annotated diagram below for more details.
- Muscle-Relaxing Pad: This reduces the lateral pull at the knee, helping to reduce pain.
- Corrective Guide: The corrective guide has been designed to stop the patella from drifting laterally.
- Patella Cover: This cover counteracts the tilting of the patella, helping to increase stability.
- Corrective Strap: This strap can be adjusted to provide you with the right level of kneecap control.
- Pad Wing: This ensures proximal extension as far as the vastus medialis muscle, improving proprioception.
- Viscoelastic Pad: This flat and anatomically designed pad improves comfort and centres the kneecap
- Hoffa Pads: Offering distal reinforcement (directed inwards) and compression of the infrapatellar fat pad
