GenuTrain® P3

Stabilizing knee support for kneecap problems

GenuTrain P3 stabilizes your kneecap with a special functional cushion, a wedge on the side and a corrective strap in cases of high-riding patella or a laterally dislocated kneecap. An intermittent compression massage supports the reduction of swelling, helps to relieve pain and improves coordination. GenuTrain P3 also provides your knee with the necessary security for movements that promote recovery.

  • 03 Patella cover
    Counteracts the tilting of the patella
  • 04 Corrective strap

    Distal reinforcement (directed inwards), compression of the infrapatellar fat pad, reduces pain

Guidance for the kneecap

Pain in the anterior knee area can be caused by particular knee conditions, such as a high-riding kneecap or lateral dislocation of the kneecap, or by excessive strain. To alleviate pain and accelerate recovery, it can be helpful to stabilize your knee joint.

GenuTrain P3 features a specially shaped functional cushion. Together with the guidance provided by the corrective strap, it offers relief for the kneecap and keeps it in its correct path of movement. A wedge at the side relaxes the ligaments that cause tension on the kneecap. Thanks to its anatomical shape, the GenuTrain P3 fits comfortably and stays securely in position.

Keep on the move

GenuTrain P3 activates your leg muscles and improves their coordination, by exerting intermittent compression during movement to improve the perception of movement. The support stimulates the metabolism and the reduction of swelling and helps to relieve pain.

This allows your knee to recover during movement, accelerating muscle development. GenuTrain P3 thus counteracts disorders of the kneecap or irritation of the knee joint. It enables you to start physiotherapy and cautious training at an early stage.

Wash my brace?

Washing regularly helps our supports maintain their shape and last longer. All Bauerfeind supports are made with machine washable materials.

Here's how to care for your brace:

For products with Velcro straps, pads or inserts, remove them if possible, or fasten them securely at the place provided on the brace. Machine wash your brace in cold water using the gentle or delicate cycle. Wash separately using a laundry detergent with no additives (do not use fabric softener or Woolite). Lay your support flat and let it air-dry; do not put it in the dryer. Proper washing and drying helps your knit support maintain its elasticity and original fit.

What’s the difference between GenuTrain, GenuTrain A3, GenuTrain P3 and GenuTrain S?

Each brace is designed specifically for a different type of injury or pain. You can find comprehensive information on the Product Details page. Here’s an overview:

  • GenuTrain® is designed for weak, swollen or painful knees. This brace support is best for nagging pain such as tendinitis/jumper’s knee.
  • GenuTrain P3® relieves pain caused by misalignment of the kneecap (patellar femoral syndrome) or tracking issues.
  • GenuTrain A3® is designed for degenerative knee pain such as osteoarthritis, middle knee injuries or pain on the inner side of the knee.
  • GenuTrain S® is best if you suffer from more advance osteoarthritis of the knee, rheumatoid arthritis, bone-on-bone arthritis or MCL/LCL ligament injuries.
