Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Bauerfeind USA, Incorporated, to offer their GenuTrain® S Knee Support to a wider consumer marketplace. Headquartered in Kennesaw, Georgia, Bauerfeind USA was founded in 1985 as a subsidiary of Bauerfeind AG/Germany, sharing the same corporate vision to provide superior quality supports, orthoses, medical compression stockings, and orthopedic supports to help users regain mobility and well-being. Designed and manufactured in Germany, all of the medical products from Bauerfeind offer unsurpassed quality and efficacy. They incorporate the most state-of-the-art technologies, design ideas and new product innovations currently available in the industry today.
Indicated for medial and/or lateral ligament injuries, or for slight instability of the knee, the GenuTrain® S Knee Support from Bauerfeind can also offer very effective support for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis as well. This soft, comfortable and breathable knitted knee support highlights lightweight thermoplastic medial/lateral sidebars that can be heated and reshaped to conform to every individual user's form for a perfect fit. The circular silicone insert that surrounds the patella helps to redistribute the pressure from the patella to the surrounding soft tissues, while anatomically contoured right and left versions of this support further stabilize the knee and assist in proprioception, resulting in improved muscle stabilization.
Machine washable, and available in a wide assortment of basic sizes and colors, the GenuTrain® S Knee Support can also be chosen as a left or right knee support. "We are pleased to introduce more consumers to the amazing stability and healing attributes of the GenuTrain® S Knee Support from Bauerfeind USA," said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. "With added passive knee support provided by the combination of joint bars and the strap system, the GenuTrain® has a positive effect on the sensorimotor system which adds even more active support to the knee. The padded ring is moved by knee activity, and this gently massages the parapatellar soft tissue structures, while the combination of this massage and the compression also accelerates the re-absorption of edema and effusions, enhancing circulation. We are proud to offer this innovative knee support, along with all of the other superior quality medical supports and orthoses from Bauerfeind to our customers at Rehabmart.com."
