GenuTrain knee support 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 pressure relief for the kneecap and reduction in pain at the meniscus.

Secure hold and protection for the knee joint, the GenuTrain active support consists of 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.     

GenuTrain is a comfortable, lightweight support designed to help relieve knee pain and swelling during sports or everyday activities. An incorporated silicone insert leaves the patella pressure-free, and provides intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint. This helps increase circulation,  aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema. Three-dimensional knit with covered patella avoids window edema, yet keeps pressure off the knee cap.

This support promotes proprioception (balance), giving heightened sensory awareness in the knee for increased joint stabilization. Graduated compression at the edges prevents constriction of circulation and makes for a more comfortable fit. Medial and lateral spiral stays keep the support from rolling or bunching.

The GenuTrain is designed for superior comfort, and is anatomically knitted for a precise fit. The fabric is breathable, regulates moisture and is gentle on sensitive skin. The active knit in the hollow of the knee is very fine to avoid irritation. A built-in donning aid allows easy pull-on application with just two fingers.

Commonly helpful with such conditions as:
  • Knee strains or sprains - A sudden or violent twist or wrench of a joint causing the stretching or twisting of ligaments and often rupture of blood vessels with hemorrhage to the tissues.
  • Knee instability
  • Post arthroscopy
  • Recurrent knee pain
  • Pre and post-operative knee inflammation - A response from an injury that may be characterized by redness, heat, pain, swelling and loss of function.
  • Chondromalacia - (Runner's Knee)- Aching pain behind the kneecap. Pain begins and progresses slowly. It appears in healthy, athletically active young people.
  • Adolescent knee pain
  • Osgood-Schlatter's disease
  • Arthritis / osteoarthritis - Inflammation of joints.
  • Degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis) - (Degenerative Joint Disease)- Arthritis of middle age characterized by degenerative and sometimes hypertrophic changes in the bone and cartilage of one or more joints and a progressive wearing down of opposing joint surfaces with consequent distortion of joint positioning usually without bony stiffening.
GenuTrain Facts:

Q. Does it have a seam?

A. Because the product is anatomically knit to best fit the body, it has a seam on the side of the support. The seam is very flat and not irritating.

Q. What's the difference between GenuTrain and GenuTrain P3?

A. GenuTrain P3 was specifically designed to treat patellar subluxation (shifting). Therefore, the silicone insert in the P3 has a tracking guide to prevent the patella from shifting out of place. It is also a little bit longer and has 4 stays, rather than 2, because the silicone insert is a lot larger than the GenuTrain insert.

Q. What are the stays made of and what are they for?

A. The stays are made of spiraled stainless steel (like a slinky toy when it is flat) so they are very flexible and won't rust when wet. The stays have plastic tips on the ends so they won't make holes in the material. The stays help prevent the support from rolling.

Q. Why is the kneecap covered?

A. The knit material lightly covers the patella to prevent swelling from developing in this area. GenuTrain's unique, 3 dimensional knit does not put excess pressure on the kneecap, which is a benefit.

Q. What is the elastic part of the GenuTrain made of?

A. The elastic part of the GenuTrain is a natural rubber which is a latex, natural rubber latex.  It is covered by many layers of fiber and does not come in direct contact with the skin.
