The Bauerfeind GenuTrain S Knee Brace provides active support to reduce pain around the knee joint. With a flat-fitting design, it can be worn under clothing to relieve pressure, provide cushioning, and stimulate circulation to promote healing.
What Is the GenuTrain S Knee Brace?
The Bauerfeind GenuTrain S Knee Brace is a stabilising knee brace that has been designed to relieve pressure surrounding the knee. This helps to relieve pain, while the viscoelastic pads gently massage the area to stimulate circulation to promote healing. This combination of gentle compression and massage accelerates the reabsorption of oedema and effusions.

How Does the GenuTrain S Knee Brace Work?
Unlike many basic knee braces, which can offer minimal pain relief during healing, the Bauerfeind GenuTrain S Knee Brace utilises a range of supportive features to ensure you get the best relief possible. The S in the name 'GenuTrain S' stands for 'splints', as the brace incorporates lateral joint splints to guide the movement of your knee. Please see the annotated diagram below for more details.
- Three-Dimensional Train Active Knit: The knitted material offers an ideal fit, improving comfort with optimal neuromuscular joint stabilisation.
- Tension Straps: Each flat-fitting strap is individually adjustable with a micro Velcro Brand Fastening System, offering an improved fit.
- Joint Splints: These enhance the mechanical stabilisation of your knee joint.
- Viscoelastic Pads: Enjoy a massaging effect during movement to stimulate blood flow and encourage healing.
- Breathable Train Active Knit: The GenuTrain S is gentle on the skin and comfortable to wear for ongoing use.
- Reduced Pressure at the Edges: As there is minimal pressure on the edges of your GenuTrain S brace, constriction is prevented.
