The best braces are “MADE IN GERMANY”
Bauerfeind, a German company formed in 1929, supply knee braces to elite athletes the world over. Included in this list are Olympians, marathon runners, NBA basketball players and Australian Rugby League stars.
Take a look at Rugby legend Digby Ioane wearing a Bauerfeind GenuTrain P3. Digby suffers from damage to his meniscus. He was 3D measured to ensure his knee braces had the perfect fit. Bauerfeind are the only knee brace supplier in Australia to provide 3D scanning prior to purchasing a knee brace. If you're not able to visit a showroom you can also measure yourself using a standard tape measure.
Bauerfeind sports knee supports are suitable for a range of sports injuries specific to knee injuries such as meniscus tears, patella fractures, patella tendonitis, osgood schlatters and PCL/MCL tears.
Why Neoprene doesn't work
We do not recommend using a cheap neoprene knee brace or knee sleeves. These sleeves offer little support and do not wick moisture. Combined this decreases the durability of the knee brace.
Using a 3D weave and moisture wicking fabric, Bauerfeind knee braces are ideal for both everyday and sports use. As the old saying goes, you do get what you pay for.
