This Bauerfeind Genutrain Knee Support (P3) is a Level II brace, which provides “ADDITIONAL”, versus your plain old BASIC support. It is only available in one color, which is what you see above. If you have minor knee pain because of a strain/sprain or inflammation, or you are just looking for some extra support during physical activities, the Bauerfeind GenuTrain P3 knee brace is fantastic choice. What’s great about this brace is that it is a light-weight elastic knee support so it is very easy to carry around. Whether you are going to the gym or going to a physically demanding job, just shove it in any bag and off you go.
Bauerfeind Genutrain Knee Support (P3) Info & Review
This brace has a lot of great features, but for now I’m going to cover my two favorite. The first is the material. This knee brace is made of a high-quality special knit material which is designed to mold to any body shape, making sure that it is snug (but not too much) in pretty much any situation. It is extremely breathable and gives you the warmth and compression you need to help manage some of the pain. The second is the added patella protection. The added silicone insert is great if you are having problems with your knee cap and want to make sure that it doesn’t move around too much. This is one of the major reasons why it is recommended by so many people for running. Other features include:
A corrective guide on each side that stops your kneecap from drifting side to side.
An adjustable strap that lets you control your kneecap movement.
Muscle-relaxing pads to help reduce pain.
The only major downside to the Bauerfeind Genutrain Knee Support is that after a few years, you may notice that it stretches a bit if you use it a lot. The P3 is also more expensive that most knee sleeves, so it is important to weigh the pros and cons before buying it. In my opinion though, you won’t go wrong.
