GenuTrain P3 relieves pain caused by misalignment of the kneecap (patellar lateralization), anterior knee pain (patellofemoral pain syndrome) or pain associated with patellar tip syndrome. The active support, with its two integral massage pads and an adjustable corrective strap, holds the kneecap securely in a natural, central position, activates the musculature and thus speeds up the healing process.
P3 stands for "permanent patella protection" - because the GenuTrain P3 protects the patella (kneecap) securely during every movement. The kneecap is centered using a specially shaped massage pad with high sides and inward-facing silicone dots for exerting pain-relieving compression on Hoffa's fat pad. An adjustable corrective strap helps to protect the kneecap from drifting sideways and can be tightened to various degrees depending on the loading situation. A second wedge-shaped massage pad at the upper outside edge of the support slightly eases the pressure on the tendons connected to the kneecap, thus minimizing the outward pull. This provides relief for the kneecap and support during its natural movement. The support's compressive knit and two pads exert a pain-relieving massage effect during movement, which helps to reduce swelling more quickly and activates the muscles that stabilize the joint.
The GenuTrain P3 is ideal for use in sport, as athletes in particular tend to suffer from knee pain, especially in the patellar area, as a result of twisting or direct impacts. The active support shortens the regeneration period, provides protection against overloading and secondary injuries, and enables training to be resumed more quickly. Thanks to the exceptional elasticity of the knit, the support adapts perfectly to the shape of the knee and does not restrict mobility. Breathable materials and reduced pressure at the edges ensure that the support feels pleasant to wear.
