GenuTrain P3 relieves pain caused by misalignment of the kneecap (patellar lateralization), anterior knee pain (patellofemoral pain syndrome) or pain associated with patellar tip syndrome. The active support, with its two integral massage pads and an adjustable corrective strap, holds the kneecap securely in a natural, central position, activates the musculature and thus speeds up the healing process.
P3 stands for “permanent patella protection” – because the GenuTrain P3 protects the patella (kneecap) securely during every movement. The kneecap is centered using a specially shaped massage pad with high sides and inward-facing silicone dots for exerting pain-relieving compression on Hoffa’s fat pad. An adjustable corrective strap helps to protect the kneecap from drifting sideways and can be tightened to various degrees depending on the loading situation. A second wedge-shaped massage pad at the upper outside edge of the brace slightly eases the pressure on the tendons connected to the kneecap, thus minimizing the outward pull. This provides relief for the kneecap and support during its natural movement. The braces’s compressive knit and two pads exert a pain-relieving massage effect during movement, which helps to reduce swelling more quickly and activates the muscles that stabilize the joint.
