Bauerfeind HistoryHelping people live active lives at any age

Bauerfeind products and technologies have always been at the cutting edge over the past 80+ years and continued to set the standard in fit, comfort, support, and performance. Our roots in craftsmanship and attention to detail has remained consistent. Trace our company’s journey from its founding in 1929 to our most recent peer and industry recognition.
