f your knee feels weak, 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 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.

Size is determined by loosely measuring:
Point 1. Circumference at 4 3/4” inches below center of the knee
Point 2. Circumference at 5 1/2” inches above center of the knee
* If your measurements fall on the border, it is recommended that you go up in size.
