Pain relief and stability for the knee joint
The GenuTrain active support 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 support 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 support 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 perfect combination of shape and function
The material and shape of the GenuTrain active supports 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 support. Spiral stays at the sides make sure that the support does not lose its shape during movement, while integrated donning aids make the supports easy to put on with little effort.
