An Officially Licensed product of the NBA, the Bauerfeind GenuTrain NBA Knee Brace offers next level knee support for pain & endurance on & off the basketball court. Developed for the needs & requirements of professional athletes, the Bauerfeind team set out to design a knee support that is flexible & durable to provide stability when running, jumping, dribbling and shooting.
Knit Fabric: Unlike most braces, the Bauerfeind GenuTrain NBA Knee Brace is made of a specially knit fabric instead of neoprene. Where neoprene can only be made in a cylindrical form and requires straps to hold it in place & loses shape over time, the knit fabric solves all these issues. The knit material is created in the looms within our production facilities in Germany, features medical grade compression that improves the blood-flow in the leg for endurance and recovery, retains it’s shape for a longer period of time, is washable and above all – it doesn’t require straps to fit securely on your knee. The fabric contours to the shape of your thigh, knee and calves when sized correctly for a tight, yet supportive, fit.
Patella Pad: The omega patella gel pad is patented by Bauerfeind to provide superior knee pain relief from pains such as jumpers knee, arthritis knee pain, post surgery recovery support and other knee issues. The patella pad keeps the knee cap in place while playing basketball and allows you to feel comfortable on the court with a stabilized knee.
Trusted Reputation & History
Partnered with NBATA: The National Basketball Athletic Trainers Association has worked in partnership with Bauerfeind since 2003. NBA Teams have trusted the GenuTrain braces and 27 teams within the NBA currently purchase a variety of Bauerfeind products to support their best athletes.

- SIZING: Unlike neoprene, this brace is designed with a knit material that contours to your knee and requires proper sizing for a correct & effective fit. Make sure to measure points A & B in the sizing chart located in the images and below to receive the proper size. For point A, start 5.5 inches above the knee cap and measure the circumference of your thigh. For point B, measure down your calf from the center of your knee cap 4.75 inches. Measure the circumference of your calf at this point.
- MATERIALS & FIT: Medical-grade compression is incorporated throughout the GenuTrain NBA Knee Brace for medical & performance effects. Improving blood-flow oxygenates the muscles helping recovery & endurance on the court. The compression may feel tighter than expected & this is normal as most neoprene and cheaper knee supports don’t offer this premium tier of material & compression. Straps are no longer needed as the material contours to the curves and muscles in the knee, quads & calves.
- STABILITY: From crossovers to slam dunks, athletes demand stability and support from their knee joints on the bball court. The GenuTrain NBA Knee Brace effectively stabilizes the knee area utilizing medical grade compression, spiral lateral stays, a viscoelastic patella gel pad and elastic comfort bands to keep the knee sleeve in place eliminating the need for bulky & uncomfortable straps.
