Major League Athletic Trainers of PBATS give us insight into keeping their players healthy and at the top of their game.

When it comes to braces and supports for your players, which product do you see your team using most often?

“We stock the Bauerfeind Knee Support and use it like crazy. [For] both our players and coaches.”

What makes the Bauerfeind GenuTrain and Sports Knee Support uniquely suited for your team?

“It’s light, it’s not restrictive and it’s very comfortable – which is extremely important if you want to ensure a player is being compliant with the treatment plan you’ve laid out for them.”

How does choosing the right brace for your players impact compliance?

“If the brace is restrictive in any way, athletes simply will not use them. That takes away from the ability as a professional athletic trainer to keep my players on the field. [Using] Bauerfeind helps me keep my guys out there for the full nine innings.”

Sports Knee Support

> Supports the movement of the knee during sporting activities through gentle, beneficial compression which alleviates the effects of overuse and high impact on the knee
> An anatomically contoured pad surrounds the kneecap, which helps disperse pressure, reducing stress and risk of injury
> The Air Knit fabric is lightweight, comfortable, moisture wicking and washable; designed for maximum breathability and comfort
