Buy Knee Support now!

You gave it your all – and now the diagnosis is runner’s knee (ITBS for short). But you don’t want this to stop you. Instead, you want to get rid of your pain quickly and return to running. This is exactly what the Bauerfeind Sports Knee Support will help you with.

The Bauerfeind Sports Knee Support surrounds your kneecap with an anatomically contoured pad. This functional element absorbs pressure peaks and massages your connective tissue during movement. In addition, two pressure points and wings on the sides provide targeted stimuli. The result: your stabilising muscles are controlled more effectively and joint coordination is improved.

ITBS: what is the best knee support for runner’s knee?

Your knee needs additional stability and relief to allow you to return to running to a moderate degree. When considering a knee support for runner’s knee, it is important that it doesn’t just provide stability – after all, you don’t only need it for additional stabilisation during everyday activities but also, and most importantly, for your exercise. That means it has to be breathable and comfortable to wear, follow your movements and prevent excessive strain and injuries. You can have all that with our Sports Knee Support. It provides you with:

  • an anatomical 3D fit that has been specifically developed for use in athletes,
  • complete freedom of movement,
  • regulated compression, thanks to its highly elastic knit which improves movement control during running,
  • a positive influence on sensorimotor function,
  • an extremely lightweight, breathable compression knit that prevents the build-up of moisture caused by sweat.
