The new generation with visco-elastic Omega pad. If your knee feels weak, is swollen or painful, the GenuTrain knee support can help you. It relieves pain, stabilizes the joint and helps to achieve faster mobilization. The GenuTrain is the original functional knee support and has undergone continuous further development since it was launched onto the market in 1981. The new generation with the Omega pad, a new functional cushion around the kneecap, is once again setting new standards. Further improvements have been made to the support, with the result that it is now better than ever at relieving pain and stabilizing the joint.
The GenuTrain orthopedic brace consists of an anatomically contoured knit and an integral, ring-shaped, functional visco-elastic cushion, the Omega pad. It relieves pain by providing the therapeutic pressure of the brace from the kneecap to the soft tissues of the knee. Two nubs on the lower edge of the pad, the Hoffa pads, exert pressure on the infrapatellar fat pad, thereby also increasing relief for the kneecap and enhancing the pain-relieving effect. Lateral wings extend into the joint space of the knee, providing targeted pain relief at the meniscus in this sensitive area.
When walking or running with the GenuTrain, the muscular contractions cause the pressure to rise and fall, thereby resulting in an effect which is similar to an intermittent compression massage. This stimulates the metabolism and helps to dispel swelling and hematomas more quickly. The brace also stimulates receptors in the soft tissue of the knee and on the skin. The surrounding musculature is also activated and effective, long-term stabilization for the joint is achieved.
The material and shape of the GenuTrain orthopedic braces have an ingenious functional design for optimal effect and a high level of wearing comfort. The breathable, skin-friendly knit adapts to your every movement, without irritation or slipping. The material is far softer and more elastic in the sensitive flexion area of the hollow of the knee, and at the edges of the brace. Spiral stays at the sides make sure that the brace does not lose its shape during movement, while integrated donning aids make the braces easy to put on with little effort.
