Taking care of your hamstrings also means taking care of your knees and the leg in general (think kinetic chain). The hamstring muscle works to stabilise and strengthen your lower body when you're moving, especially with weight, and whether it's a simple strain or a full tear, making sure you're protected is essential.
At Bauerfeind, we have got you covered for any hamstring issues, from our hamstring compression sleeves for milder issues, to a thigh brace for something more serious, or one of our knee braces for general support.
Muscles becoming weaker after wearing a brace or support is known as reliance. This is when the brace does all the work and your body weakens, becoming less effective without it. Bauerfeind have worked extensively to provide a range of supports and compression that have minimal risk of reliance, particularly when combined with activity and exercise.
Simply put, Bauerfeind have set the global standard for medical braces, compression and insoles. Using the highest quality materials to construct decades-refined products that have been clinically proven to address a vast range of issues. There's no substitute for quality, and Bauerfeind have that from the simplest strap to the largest brace.
Virtually all of our supports are designed for active use, whether it's on the sports field, in the gym, or just for a run around the block.
Virtually all of our products can be machine washed on a cold gentle cycle and air dried out of direct sunlight. Putting them on and taking them off carefully is recommended, and for specific product care, refer to the product manual or contact our friendly staff.
All supports and insoles come with a 12 month warranty, and compression stockings with a 3 month warranty for any manufacturers faults. At any point if you've got issues with the product or aren't sure if something is wrong, just contact our helpful staff.
Bauerfeind have an incredibly extensive sizing system for our products based off of hundreds of thousands of patient measurements. The perfect anatomic fit system we use means that the supports are designed to fit your body, not the other way around. (We also offer custom options for a range of our products for those rare few who still can't fit into our sizing range).
