Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis in the knee and involves bone-on-bone rubbing of the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone).
“Wear and tear”. The natural cushioning between joints, called cartilage, has worn away. This causes bones within a joint to rub together causing inflammation and pain. Age, genetics, repetitive stress and gender are contributing factors to OA.
Daily movement involving flexion/ extension of the knee causes the bones to rub together and can cause varying pain in individuals.
Staying active is a great way to counteract some symptoms of osteoarthritis. Managing OA pain will often require a combination of options. Talk with your doctor or visit us to find a pain management combination that works for you.

It also features certified medical-grade compression that meets compression requirements and has been proven superior to the leading brands at moisture wicking and breathability, keeping your knee cool during wear. The lightweight CoolVent™ knit in the popliteal area enhances breathability and comfort, while the patella graphics help with intuitive placing of the sleeve.
This knee sleeve is designed to provide support and pain relief to anyone with medial or lateral knee pain, early or mild unicompartmental osteoarthritis of the knee, and symptomatic, unicompartmental meniscus degeneration. It is available in five standard sizes and three comfort sizes.
The GenuTrain A3 orthopedic knee brace is designed to treat various types of knee complaints, including osteoarthritis, irritated knee joints, complex knee pain, or misalignment of the kneecap.
The support provides targeted, healing intermittent compression massage through an anatomically shaped elastic knit fabric with an integrated elastic pressure pad. The soft knit fabric wicks moisture away from the body, while pressure-reduced edges and breathable materials ensure maximum comfort.
The GenuTrain A3 helps stabilize the knee joint while stimulating and massaging the surrounding tissue. It features two spiral stays to retain the shape of the brace, while the visco-elastic pad prevents the kneecap from slipping and combats pain. The soft knit in the hollow of the knee enhances wearing comfort, and the corrective guide keeps the kneecap stable and centered without losing mobility.
With its medical effectiveness, comfortable fit, and ability to relieve knee pain and discomfort, the GenuTrain A3 is an ideal choice for those seeking relief from osteoarthritis and other knee complaints. The knee brace is suitable for active senior citizens, those with general muscular disbalance or functional instability, patellar lateralization, or jumper's knee. All active train supports can be washed separately in the washing machine, ensuring the compression of the knitted fabric is retained.
The GenuTrain OA Knee Brace is a lightweight and comfortable knee orthosis designed to relieve pain and provide targeted support to individuals suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee, instabilities of the knee joint, and various knee injuries.
The orthosis features an innovative unloading system that can be easily adjusted with the Boa Fit-System, providing medial or lateral relief based on the 3-point principle. The 3D AirKnit compression support and pressure-free bending zone ensure unparalleled relief, joint control, and all-day wearing comfort. With its many advantages, the GenuTrain OA Knee Brace helps you stay active and improve your quality of life, even over long periods.

Four ligaments and the patella tendon support the patella (knee). A stretch or tear in the tendon is termed a “strain,” whereas a stretch or tear in one of the four ligaments is termed a “sprain”.
Following a variety of knee surgeries, a post-operational brace may be recommended to promote proper recovery by reducing or immobilizing the patella’s (knee) range of motion.
Dislocation refers to a condition in which the patella (kneecap) is completely displaced from its normal alignment. Majority of patella dislocations occur towards the lateral (outside) side of the knee.
A condition that produces abnormal stresses on the under-surface of the kneecap (patella) due to tracking abnormalities. Pain may vary from mild to severe discomfort.
The meniscus is a piece of cartilage that provides cushion between the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone). A meniscus injury may include symptoms of pain, swelling and stiffness, and difficulty bending/ straightening the patella (knee).
The medial collateral ligament (MCL) and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) are located on the medial (inner) and lateral (outer) side of the knee. The attach to the distal (bottom) end of the femur (thighbone) and proximal (top) end of the tibia (shinbone) to play an important role in joint strength and stability. A torn MCL/LCL may include symptoms of pain, swelling and stiffness, tenderness along the inside/outside of the knee and instability.
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) attach at the distal (bottom) end of the femur (thighbone) and proximal (top) end of the tibia (shinbone). The ACL/PCL play an important role in stabilizing the patella (knee).
Synovial fluid lubricates the knee to reduce friction and help the leg swing smoothly. A buildup of fluid may result in a fluid-filled cyst originating on the popliteal bursa (back of the knee). Some individuals may experience no pain, while others may notice swelling and inability to fully flex the knee.
Inflammation below the knee at the point where the tendon from the kneecap (patella) attaches to the shinbone (tibia).
Articular cartilage covers the ends of bones inside a joint. Chondromalacia is most common in the knee and involves the softening and breakdown of this cartilage.
