Brace of Origin: How Bauerfeind are providing world-leading products

State of Origin is one of the biggest sporting events in Australia, taking the best NRL players from Queensland and New South Wales to see which state will hold the annual title. This year Bauerfeind are providing world-leading products such as knee braces and compression gear. 

Over the past 38 years, the Queensland Maroons have won 21 SOO titles, while the Blues have won 15. Even though it’s often a close fought game, the Maroons have undoubtedly shown their dominance. 

If a 38 year history has helped the Maroons establish their quality, then Bauerfeind’s 91 year history proves their place on the world stage.

While Australia might be known for our elite athletes, Germany is world-renowned for the highest standard of engineering, manufacturing and product quality.

Bauerfeind have been refining compression and braces for almost a century, and have defined what it means to provide compression and support for doctors, athletes and the entire medical community the world over.

But why do they stand out so much? Let's take a look at the factory in Zeulenroda, Germany, to see exactly why these products are world-leading. 

Uncompromised quality

Whether it’s their cars, infrastructure or medical devices, Germany is known for a quality of engineering and design that can’t be beat.

Bauerfeind have exemplified this reputation through their products and design. Rather than focusing on market trends or fashion and fads, Bauerfeind have kept their eye on the product and the patient first and foremost.

This has led to an uncompromising quality in each and every product for the past 90 years. The highest quality materials used to create the braces, compression supports and insoles all in their state of the art factory means that there’s no gap or shortcut with anything they make.

Ground-breaking research

Bauerfeind constantly lead the way with medical research and development. Rather than keeping a small team doing the same thing, they engage with medical professionals at the head of their field to revise and develop products constantly, drawing from the greatest medical minds.

The Bauerfeind Academy is a world leading institute that educates, researches and develops the most innovative and effective products the world over, and draws medical experts from every corner of the globe.

Strict policy

Germans have a reputation for being strict, uncompromising and sticklers for policy. While this may be opposed to the easy going way Australians like to live, it means that their quality assurance and production is unrivalled.

The factory in Germany has strict climate control and sector management, meaning each part of the process is isolated and expertly managed, and every product undergoes an inspection by staff before it’s shipped off.

Combining the world leading brace of origin from Germany with the nation leading State of origin players from Queensland, it’s a match made in heaven that puts quality and high performance first and foremost.
