Bauerfeind: Putting emotion into motion

1 February 2016

Whether you live an active lifestyle, or you're just experiencing the natural consequences of ageing, your body can sometimes let you down in the form of injury, muscle and joint conditions or just not performing as well as it once did. While this is an inconvenience, it doesn't have to have a drastic effect on your quality of life, and there are products out there that can help you get back to your best. Bauerfeind is one of the best choices in this regard, with a comprehensive range of supports and braces for a wide range of conditions.

Who is Bauerfeind?

Bauerfeind is a German-based company, specialising in supports and braces that help you maintain and regain health, increase well-being and ensure a greater quality of life. Bauerfeind products are created by people, for people. From the initial design, through product development, to the manufacturing process and elaborate checks, Bauerfeind places great value upon 'Made in Germany' quality. 

Bauerfeind's company motto is 'Motion is Life' and this principle shines through in the design of the products, which help people stay active and defy the ageing process. You're only as old as you feel, and you'll feel a whole lot better if you trust Bauerfeind products. The company is actively committed to popular and professional sports, too, and has been an official supplier to the German Olympic teams since 2001. If it's suitable for the best in the world, you're sure to be in good hands.

Innovative Technology

Compressive Knit Fabric - Bauerfeind's products are constructed from a breathable knit fabric, that is both comfortable to wear and excellent at keeping moisture away from the body, making it suitable for extended wear. The fabric helps to provide a soothing massage effect to the muscles and joints, making it ideal for movement and effective at accelerating the healing process.

Pressure-Reduced Edges - the braces and supports have pressure-reduced edges which ensures a comfortable fit without constricting movement. The design also prevents bunching or slipping, allowing you to go about your business secure in the knowledge that the product is doing its job. The design also helps to improve the circulation, so your muscles can get the blood and oxygen they need to recover more quickly. 

Adjustable Compression and Fit - several of the Bauerfeind products contain some sort of strap system, for easy, effective adjustment of fit for optimum comfort and support. This allows every individual to personalise the fit so it's unique to them, for great results every time.



Bauerfeind has a comprehensive range of knee braces; the GenuTrain range. The Bauerfeind GenuTrain Knee Brace is ideal for weak, swollen or painful knees and helps to unload and support the knee joint for a speedy recovery.

If you're looking for a bit more support for more serious injury, the Bauerfeind GenuTrain A3 Knee Brace is another great choice. A lightweight, comfortable brace, it uses intermittent compression massage to treat knee pain from arthritis, patellar tracking, jumper's knee and more.


The Bauerfeind AirLoc Ankle Brace is the ideal product for stabilising the ankle within a shoe for convenient daily wear. A twisted ankle is all too common, but the AirLoc helps to prevent unwanted movement and is great for ligament injury, instability and more.


Back injury, especially lower back conditions, can be debilitating and significantly affect your quality of life. The Bauerfeind LumboTrain Back Support is a great option for combating this pain without having to rely on medication. Whether you've got lumbago, sciatica or sacroiliac joint conditions, the LumboTrain's construction will give a soothing massage and help reduce tension and relieve pain.
