Bauerfeind: Motion Is Life
Thursday, 16 May 2019
Bauerfeind are a family owned company that sticks close to their traditional roots. From humble beginnings, Bauerfeind have transformed themselves from a small-town rubber stockings manufacturer, to one of the global leaders in sports supports, orthotics and compression clothing. Here at Health and Care, we pride ourselves on our world class selection of rehabilitation supports and braces, and we couldn't take ourselves seriously without including Bauerfeind.
Sticking to Their Family Roots
So who are Bauerfeind? They were founded in a town in East Germany called Zeulenroda-Triebes in 1929. Their sole focus was medical rubber stockings, which was before they moved to Dermstadt-Eberstadt in Western Germany because of East Germany's nationalisation policy.
It was here that they expanded, moving into compression bandages, orthotics and sports supports and braces. This expansion was fast, with a new factory worth 100 million Euro, as well as a research facility and headquarters that represent the cornerstone of their success. The company is now international, with over 2,000 employees in Germany, Austria, France, Great Britain, Italy, Spain and the United States.
Products That Keep You Moving
One of the most important parts in any injury recovery process, is the ability to keep moving. Bauerfeind recognise that movement brings recovery, and the majority of their products are designed to meet this goal. Whether you need supports for your knees, backs, hands, elbows and shoulders, or orthotics for your feet, Bauerfeind products will reduce pain and make movement easier.

Supports and Braces
Bauerfeind's range of supports and braces are designed to restore mobility and improve performance. They are all designed from knitted fabric, and are designed to provide a therapeutic massage and support while you are on the move. This stimulates circulation and improves the healing process.
Their supports and braces are so renowned that they have supplied everyone from amateur to professional sportspeople with equipment during injury recovery.
