Get effective protection against excessive strain during sporting activity with the Bauerfeind Sports Knee Support.
The controlled compression improves the knee’s ability to maintain maximum movement stability during sporting activities.
At the same time, the hard-wearing sports knee support massages the ligaments, tendons, muscles, and the connective tissue, which in turn has a positive impact on the sensorimotor system.
This combats the risk of stress and injury, and the pain associated with excessive strain subsides more quickly.
The sports knee brace is best used to treat and prevent sprains and strains of knee, knee swelling, tendinitis of the knee, jumper's knee, runner's knee and to alleviate the effects of overuse and high impact activity during sporting activity.

Sizing, How it Works
Measure the circumference of your thigh 14 cm above centre of your knee (1) with your knee bent at 30 degrees.
Measure the circumference of your calf 12 cm below centre of your knee (2) with your knee bent at 30 degrees.
The sports knee support should feel snug and firm but not constrictive. All Bauerfeind knee braces have a 1 year warranty and qualify for our 30 day size exchange policy.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is true medical-grade compression?
Gradient compression means the compression is strongest farthest away from the center of the body/heart and slowly loosens as it goes closer to the center of the body.
Medical-grade compression levels are in the “sweet spot” for improving circulation and removing lactic-acid and other fluid build up. Unlike most other 'active wear' and retail compression available in Australia (that are not gradient and provide much lower grade compression), Bauerfeind compression is true medical grade.
What’s the difference between the Performance and Recovery lines?
Sports Supports are ideal for shorter bursts of intense activity (like a workout or a basketball game), whereas Medical Supports are softer and more comfortable for all-day wear.
Sports braces and supports are great for injury prevention, but if you already have an injury you're trying to recover from, we’d recommend going with a Recovery brace or support.
What is proprioception?
Succeeding at your sport relies on your coordination and confidence, and gaining awareness of your body’s movements is essential to improving performance and preventing an injury.
