Patellofemoral syndrome is a condition characterized by pain in front of the knee. Pain may vary from mild to severe discomfort.
Pain occurs when the kneecap (patella) does not track properly in the patellar groove. This is often caused due to thigh muscle imbalances, but can also result from an injury, overuse or excess weight.
Sitting, squatting, jumping and climbing/ descending stairs can cause discomfort, while prolonged sedentary behaviour may worsen these factors at the onset of activity.
Stability of the knee cap is essential for a more pain-free lifestyle. Allow us to fit you with a brace that best stabilizes the patella for everyday use.

The GenuTrain knee brace is a medical-grade support that provides secure support for mild instability, patellofemoral syndrome, Bakers cyst, and knee tendonitis.
Its new Omega+ pad provides targeted stimulation to sensitive areas of the knee that influence pain perception and mobility. In contrast, the anatomically-contoured knitted fabric with a soft textured surface provides a gentle massage and activates the body's proprioceptors to keep the support in place.
Embedded stays with flexible bending zones and donning and doffing aids ensure a secure fit and make the support easy to put on and take off. GenuTrain is soft, breathable, and moisture-wicking, especially in the sensitive area in the back of the knee, for all-day wearing comfort.
The support's meniscus wings provide targeted massage and pain relief to the joint space, while the Hoffa pads stimulate the infrapatellar fat pad to promote the body's natural healing mechanism. The GenuTrain allows physiotherapy and gentle training to begin at an earlier stage and promotes the self-healing process in the knee.

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).
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).
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).
