#MaterialMatters: Find out how quality material impact the effectiveness of bracing and compression

Backed by over 90 years of research and development, Bauerfeind has been manufacturing medical (Train) line of products and Performance line on-site in Germany using the highest quality materials.

Our Medical (Train) line of products focuses on injury recovery. The three-dimensional surface of the breathable material allows constant micro-circulation and intermittent compression during movement. The Train knitted fabric fits perfectly and consists of different zones ensuring more effectiveness, comfort, and temperature regulation. 

Our Performance line consists of injury prevention options that provide genuine, graduated, medical-grade compressions and braces that meet industry recognised standards. Their main goal is to reduce muscle vibrations and boosts blood flow: improving circulation and helping to remove lactic acid and fluid build-up. The material itself hosts an ultra-breathable moisture-wicking weave that vents heat and moves with your knee through every motion. 


Elements of material that differentiate Bauerfeind from competitors 

Pain Relieving & Stable  

  • Bauerfeind’s use of Omega pads, Hoffa pads and Meniscus Wings provides complete relief and reduces pain.  
  • It stimulates metabolic healing processes by using the compressive elements of the knitted fabric which create a beneficial intermittent massage during movement to promote recovery. 
  • Our patented elastic and knitted fabric is surrounded by 2 soft yarns running in opposite directions to provide more protection

Slip Resistant 

  • Moisture wicking technology in the knitted fabric draws away moisture keeping your brace firmly intact and resistant to slipping. 

Comfortable & Easy-to-wear 

  • Provides more comfort for users, through massaging pads and soft thread 
  • Includes flexible grips and stretchy knit meaning there is increased ease of use in putting on the brace and a pleasant and breathable sensation on the skin without any slippage. 


  • Made with strong knit material and high-quality seams, using honeycomb flat-knit weave.  
  • Designed to have some elements of thinner structure to provide lighter compression on sensitive parts of the body (bony areas), without compromising durability and longevity of the product. 


  • The honeycomb flat knitted fabric draws moisture away for a sweat-free material 
  • The braces are anatomically contoured and have highly elasticity to support you during movement – proving just how important both material and sizing are in aiding the efficacy of the brace
