The Bauerfeind Genutrain Knee Support (P3 knee sleeve) is a Level II brace, which provides ADDITIONAL support, versus your plain old BASIC support. It is only available in one color, which is what you see above.
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 runners.
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.
The only major downside to this sleeve 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.
Who should use the Bauerfeind Genu Train P3 Knee Brace?
The Bauerfeind Genutrain is an extremely versatile brace. Due to the technology used to structure the materials in targeted areas, the Bauerfeind Genutrain can be used to support a vareity of injuries and conditions.
As we mentioned earlier, it is particularly good at supporting runners in their training due to the additional silicone insert around the patella.
With its Level II brace status, it can be argued that it is targeted at sports people and atheletes. However, we believe it has many applications and even a non-sports person that has some pain in the knee can find it very useful.
Ease of Use
This supportive brace is extremely easy to use. It is designed to use the slip on method, so you do not have to worry about fiddling around with straps or velcro that can scratch and cause irritation on your skin.
The stretchy material allows the brace to conform to your leg and knee shape comfortably and hold the brace in a tight position around the knee.
