“These braces are incredibly well received by my patients because they are more comfortable than any other products I have prescribed. The fabric breathes and the supports are effective but not intrusive.” - Dr. Clair Francomano, Director, Ehlers-Danlos Society Center for Clinical Care and Research, Greater Baltimore Medical Center

“We all have a closet full of braces that we’ve tried over the years that are worthless. For me, wearing support braces was a complete waste of time until I discovered Bauerfeind. I used their braces continually for three months before I realized I was using them less and less. That’s when it dawned on me. Our biggest problem is we don’t have time to heal before we re-injure ourselves. [Bauerfeind products] give back what EDS takes away from us – time to heal.” – David G., EDS patient
