GenuTrain® – The new generation with Omega pad
If your knee feels weak, is swollen or painful, the GenuTrain® knee support can help you. It stabilizes the joint, relieves pain and helps to achieve faster mobilization. The GenuTrain is the original functional knee support and has undergone continuous further development since it was launched onto the market in 1981. The new generation with the Omega pad, a new functional cushion around the kneecap, is once again setting new standards. Further improvements have been made to the support, with the result that it is now better than ever at stabilizing the joint and relieving pain.
-secure hold for the knee joint
-pressure relief for the kneecap and reduction in pain at the meniscus
-anatomical fit and integrated donning aid
Secure hold and protection for the knee joint
The GenuTrain® active support consists of an anatomically contoured knit and an integral, ring-shaped, functional cushion, the Omega pad. It relieves pain by conveying the therapeutic pressure of the support from the kneecap to the soft tissues of the knee region. Two nubs on the lower edge of the pad, the Hoffa pads, exert metered pressure on the infrapatellar fat pad, thereby also increasing relief for the kneecap and supporting 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. These meniscal wings mean that the Omega pad has a similar shape to the Greek letter Ω, hence its name.
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 cutting into you 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. The GenuTrain is therefore particularly pleasant to wear. 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.
