The knit plays a very important role in the production of the supports.
Bauerfeind uses a modern 3D flat knit technique. With this technique,
unlimited threads can be worked in or left out at any point. This
allows the support to fit the anatomical conditions exactly. The 3D
knit supports thereby offer a differentiated therapeutic knitted
compression. Unwanted pressure points can be avoided. The high
elasticity of the knit makes it easier to apply and wear the support,
as well as providing improved breathability and wearing comfort.

City of Zeulenroda, Germany.
The central think tank for developing and enhancing products and
"Ideas bring success" – this corporate motto has always embodied the
spirit of Bauerfeind's business. Our long-term agenda is coming up with
ground-breaking care articles with enhanced functioning and greater
therapeutic effectiveness than conventional products.
That's what Bauerfeind's Innovation Center is all about. Our team of
technical specialists works together with physicians, universities,
clinics and research institutes to develop existing products and come
up with new ideas. Our many patents document the excellent results of
our technology pool.
Working together with physicians and clinics
can only come up with products that make sense for therapy if we
have a longstanding relationship of trust and close co-operation with
physicians, orthopedic technicians and patients to make sure they use
our products with confidence.
Working together with the medical advisory council, universities and
Innovation Center has signed up the most reputable
specialists in every field for the new products it develops. Each and
every one is a university professor and/or clinic director so they all
contribute state-of-the-art knowledge to product development from their
everyday work. However, our medical advisory council not only guides
these new products in the development and testing phase. These
reputable scientists also concentrate on continued product enhancement.
And regular contact to a variety of research institutes at German
universities promotes up-and-coming scholars while developing new and
