Check out our line of knee braces in St. Catharines and their benefits. We offer the following braces:
Active support for relief and stabilization of the knee
The new generation with visco-elastic Omega pad. If your knee feels weak, is swollen or painful, the GenuTrain knee support can help you. It relieves pain, stabilizes the joint 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 relieving pain and stabilizing the joint.
Active support for improved patellar tracking
GenuTrain P3 relieves pain caused by misalignment of the kneecap (patellar lateralization), anterior knee pain (patellofemoral pain syndrome) or pain associated with patellar tip syndrome. The active support, with its two integral massage pads and an adjustable corrective strap, holds the kneecap securely in a natural, central position activates the musculature and thus speeds up the healing process.
The active support for complex treatment of knee pain
The GenuTrain A3 comfort support is suitable for treating various types of knee issues associated: e.g. osteoarthritis, irritated knee joint or complex medial knee pain. Thanks to the anatomically shaped visco-elastic pressure pad integrated in the elastic knit fabric, the support gives the joint and muscles a targeted, healing intermittent compression massage on every movement.
Active support with sidebars
The GenuTrain S active support with medial and lateral joints supports the knee joint for indications of slight instability, arthritis or osteoarthritis of the knee. An integral, ringshaped visco-elastic pressure cushion (pad) surrounds the kneecap, while the interplay of the knit and the pad provides an intermittent compressive massage, thereby activating the musculature and stimulating the healing process. The combination of ...joints and strapping system in the GenuTrain S provides added support for the knee.
Bauerfeind® GenuTrain® S Pro
Active support with adjustable joint splints for lateral stabilization
The lateral splints on the GenuTrain S Pro active support have adjustable hinges. Together with two inelastic straps on the upper and lower leg, they keep the knee joint secure during movement. Depending on how the hinges are set, the splints can be used to restrict and flexion and extension angle of the leg. This restriction of movement helps to correct incorrect movements and protects the knee during certain phases of treatment.
Multifunctional orthosis for stabilization of the knee
SofTec® Genu is a multifunctional support for stabilization of the knee. It is used, for example,in cases of torn ligaments, collateral ligament injury, arthritis or in sports therapy. Its construction combines stability and control provided by adjustable "intelligent" joints, healing massage provided by a viscoelastic insert around the kneecap and maximum wearing comfort thanks to the anatomically shaped, breathable SofTec® vector-oriented knitted fabric.
Multifunctional orthosis for relief of the medial knee compartment
For an indication of medial osteoarthritis of the knee or following injury of the inner meniscus, the SofTec® OA multifunctional orthosis stabilizes and relieves pressure on the affected area, while simultaneously permitting muscle activation. The orthosis consists of a Bauerfeind's patented SofTec knit and strap system with an integral functional element comprising anatomically contoured shells, pressure cushions (pads) and an air bladder system that can be filled or emptied as required to unload the medial compartment of the knee and decrease pain.
Multifunctional orthosis for stabilization of the hip joint
The multi-functional orthosis SofTec Coxa stabilizes the hip joint following dislocation or total hip arthroplasty. It prevents dislocation of the hip joint by controlling ab/adduction and flexion/extension of the hip joint with a special monocentric joint. The SofTec Coxa is easily fit and adjusted to all patient types. The multi-functional orthosis can be used on the left or right-hand side or bilaterally.
Functional orthosis for stabilization of the knee
A torn ligament, collateral ligament injury, or operation on the meniscus can mean that the knee joint needs to external support and control for a period of time. SecuTec® Genu is a lightweight sturdy knee orthosis, designed to fit the anatomy of the leg. It is easy to put on and take off, fits perfectly and is very comfortable to wear.
Support for the treatment of muscle injuries to the thigh
The breathable MyoTrain active support offers an enhanced alternative to taping for muscle injuries to the thigh and hamstrings, such as muscle fiber tears or pulls, myosclerosis or bruising. The special combination of knit, strap system and two different visco-elastic pressure cushions (pads), which can be added or removed as required, allows swelling to subside more quickly and accelerates the healing process.
