Bauerfeind’s GenuPoint® relieves the excess strain on the patellar tendon below the kneecap, helps to ease pain in the front knee, and counteracts the noticeable effects of restricted mobility.
The narrow support is anatomically contoured and sits directly below the kneecap. A special functional element with four gel-like pressure points is incorporated in its knitted fabric. These pressure points target the area around the patellar tendon, providing relief at its insertion. Each pressure point has nubs that provide a soothing massage effect during movement. The two inner pressure points guide and support the tendon during loading. The outer pressure points enhance the perception of stimuli in the surrounding area and boost the joint function of the knee through a number of effects including faster muscle activation.
The soft knitted fabric of the GenuPoint® is only elastic in one direction, allowing it to hold the bent knee in position securely, and fitting the body perfectly. The support can be tightened evenly via a Velcro strap on both sides, allowing the relieving compression to be adjusted to individual needs when the support is put on.
