What are the benefits of Bauerfeind?

Bauerfeind’s medical product line includes all-around and injury-specific bracing solutions designed to help with conditions such as osteoarthritis, Achilles tendonitis and SI joint pain. All braces and supports are designed with medical-grade compression and our durable, lightweight and breathable Train knit material combined with functional elements such as massage pads or straps. These features work together to relieve pain and swelling while providing joint stability.

Additionally, our braces are anatomically contoured, moisture-wicking and don’t limit mobility, which helps keep you confident and comfortable during most activities. Our braces and supports are clinically proven to relieve pain and swelling and are tested with the highest quality materials.

How do I select the best Bauerfeind medical brace for my condition?

While many of our medical braces can be used for specific conditions, such as arthritis, tennis elbow/golfer’s elbow and mommy's thumb, we recommend speaking with your healthcare provider to determine the best brace for you.

On most product pages, you can find indications that explain which condition each brace is intended to help. You can also contact our team of expert product specialists at (800) 423-3405 if you need further assistance in choosing the right brace.

How do Bauerfeind’s knee braces help people living with arthritis?

Because there isn’t a cure for arthritis or osteoarthritis, it is important to manage pain while also mobilizing the knee to slow the progress of the disease.

Bauerfeind’s GenuTrain A3 and GenuTrain OA knee braces address the main setbacks of arthritis and osteoarthritis, such as joint pain and swelling, with medical-grade compression and a design that stabilizes the knee and stimulates muscles around the knee. Therefore, those living with arthritis experience less pain and swelling and more stability for a more active lifestyle.

Can I use an FSA or HSA to pay for Bauerfeind medical braces?

Bauerfeind braces and supports are eligible for reimbursement through most FSA (Flexible Spending Account), HSA (Health Savings Account) and HRA (Health Reimbursement Arrangement) plans. *Please consult your specific plan administrator for more details.

What if I’m between sizes? Which should I purchase?

Bauerfeind braces and supports are anatomically contoured and are most effective when they fit perfectly. Your brace should support you firmly without feeling tight or loose. Please use the size chart, at the bottom of each product page, to size correctly.

If between sizes, we’d recommend contacting our team of expert product specialists at (800) 423-3405.

Can I wash my Bauerfeind brace, support or compression socks?

Yes. Washing your braces and supports regularly helps maintain their shape and last longer.

For products with Velcro straps, fasten them securely at the place provided on the brace. Remove pads when applicable, for example, on the LumboTrain back brace. Machine-wash your brace or support in cold water using a gentle or delicate cycle. Wash separately using a laundry detergent with no additives (do not use fabric softener or Woolite). Lay flat and let it air-dry. Do not put it in the dryer. Proper washing and drying helps keep the knit’s elasticity and original fit.

What is the product warranty for Bauerfeind medical products?

Bauerfeind’s medical braces and supports are backed by a one-year warranty from manufacturing defects. This does not include normal wear and tear, and if the product has not been washed or properly cared for, this could negate a warranty replacement. Visit our product care guide to better understand how to care for your Bauerfeind product.

It’s also important to remember that Bauerfeind braces and supports are not considered a knee pad replacement. Failure to wear a knee pad during a sport or activity that involves multiple high-impact encounters with a hard surface can result in excessive wear that is also not covered by our product warranty.
