The Bauerfeind GenuTrain P3 knee brace is designed to be used in sports and to protect against overloading and secondary knee injuries. The brace is made of comfortable knit fabric and features two specialized silicone inserts, over the patella as well as an adjustable corrective strap to provide stabilization and support. There are medial and lateral stays that assist in patella support.
The GenuTrain P3 is ideal for use in training or participating in sports (as advised by your doctor). The excellent compression the knitted fabric provides, along with the patellar strap and two silicone inserts help provide the support for patellar injuries, knee instability, anterior knee pain and post lateral release surgery.
Q. Why does the GenuTrain P3 come in right or left versions?
A. GenuTrain P3 is anatomically knit to fit the right or left leg for comfortable, effective therapy. It also has a silicone insert with a tracking guide to prevent the patella from shifting out of place. The guide is always on the lateral (outside) of the insert, because the patella shifts in this direction. Therefore, there is a left and right version to ensure that the tracking guide is on the correct side.
Q. What are the stays made of and what are they for?
A. The stays are made of spiraled stainless steel (like a slinky toy when it is flat) so they are very flexible and won't rust when wet. The stays have plastic tips on the ends so they won't make holes in the material. The stays help prevent the support from rolling.
Q. How does it stay up? (others have Velcro straps)
A. GenuTrain P3 is anatomically knit to fit the right or left leg so it won't slide like some other products. It also features 4 stainless steel stays to help prevent the support from rolling. When properly measured and fitted, the product will stay comfortably in place.

The product is good, it fits well and seems to add a lot of protection, however my knee still hurts in the same place. I started a series of lidocaine shots maybe it will help. Maybe my knee is too far gone for it to help. i just finished a series of shots (PRP injections), maybe its too early to tell.
