Bauerfeind – SofTec Genu Knee Brace

Introducing the versatile SofTec® Genu orthosis, an effective solution for knee stabilization in cases of torn ligaments, collateral ligament injury, arthritis, and more. Its design combines fixed joint splints for stability and control, a kneecap pad for healing massage, and a breathable SofTec® vector-oriented knitted fabric for maximum wearing comfort.


Here are some of the benefits you can expect from the SofTec® Genu:
  • Pain relief: the orthosis helps alleviate knee pain and discomfort.
  • Massage effect: the kneecap pad provides a healing massage with every movement, promoting blood circulation and aiding in the healing process.
  • Intelligent stabilization: the orthosis is equipped with “intelligent” joint splints that provide stabilization and support to the knee joint.
The SofTec® Genu is ideal for various indications, including:
  • Isolated rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament: the orthosis can be used for conservative treatment, pre-operative and postoperative management, long-term rehabilitation and sports therapy, chronic insufficiency, and more.
  • Conservative functional treatment of collateral ligament injuries.
  • Treatment of an “unstable knee joint” caused by severe osteoarthritis of the knee, rheumatoid arthritis, endoprosthesis, post-traumatic injuries, and other conditions.
  • Restricting the knee’s range of motion, such as after meniscal suturing or meniscal implantation.
To keep your SofTec® Genu in top condition, follow these care instructions:
  • Do not expose the orthosis to direct heat sources such as heating or solar radiation.
  • Clean separately by hand washing with a mild detergent at 20-30 ° C.
  • Remove the hinged splints from the side pockets before washing.
  • After washing and drying, make sure to insert the hinged splints back into the correct pockets.
  • Close all Velcro fasteners to prevent hook-and-loop ability impairment.


Invest in the SofTec® Genu orthosis for superior knee stabilization and comfort.
