ViscoHeel is suitable for reducing shock loads on the ankle, knee and hip joints, for example in the case of osteoarthritis of the foot, knee or hip joints, endoprostheses, pain in the Achilles tendon region (achillodynia) and Haglund's deformity ("pump bump"). In the ViscoHeel K variant, an additional lateral raising of the heel cushion counteracts varus or valgus alignment (bow-leggedness or knock-knees).
- Gentle on your skin
A BED FOR YOUR HEEL
The ViscoHeel for the right and left foot cushions the heel, fits perfectly in closed shoes, and reduces pressure discomfort with every step, also helping to protect the leg joints and spine. The anatomically contoured heel cushion gently guides the hindfoot and relieves calve muscles and tendons in particular, helping inflammation of the Achilles tendon to subside more quickly. It provides partial relief in cases of Haglund’s deformity.
DURABLE AND GENTLE ON YOUR SKIN
Only a few heel cushions can withstand daily use over long periods. ViscoHeel is made of high-quality silicone and is gentle on your skin, easy to clean and, thanks to modern production techniques, particularly durable. It sits under your heel with every step without slipping.
- Osteoarthritis of the leg joints and for endoprostheses (relief)
- Achillodynia – tendomyopathy
- Haglund’s deformity – partial relief
- Tarsal bone pain
MEASUREMENT AND PRODUCT RANGE
We recommend washing the ViscoHeel cushion with a mild detergent.
All Train active supports can be washed separately in the washing machine at 30°C with liquid detergent. Please note the following information:
In the case of products with Velcro straps, these should be removed if possible or firmly attached to the designated place.
If possible, pads or splints should also be removed before washing.
It is recommended to use a laundry net (spin cycle: maximum 500 revolutions per minute). Dry your Train active support in the air and not in the dryer, otherwise, the knitted fabric may be impaired.
Please wash your Train active support regularly so that the compression of the knitted fabric is retained.

HIGHLY EFFECTIVE FOR HEALTHY KNEES
After an acute injury or surgery, chronic abnormalities, osteoarthritis or instability in the knee: the GenuTrain relieves pain and promotes movement through intermittent compression massage. This puts you on the right track towards natural movement.
The ring-shaped Omega+ Pad functional cushion securely holds the kneecap in place and reduces edema and swelling. Integrated massage points with specially flexible silicone nubs target particularly painful areas. Two flexible plastic stays on the side ensure that the GenuTrain always fits perfectly. At the top and bottom, integrated grips make it easier to put on and take off the support.
FIT AGAIN FASTER
Your body needs to learn how to move naturally again as quickly as possible and avoid incorrect postures adopted to help relieve pain. The Train knit fabric repeatedly stimulates the skin, which promotes movement perception, activates the muscles and stabilizes the joint.
Two massage points called meniscus wings on the sides of the knee provide a targeted pain-relieving effect around the joint space and the menisci. Two additional massage points, the Hoffa spots, stimulate the infrapatellar fat pad with controlled pressure. This has a significant metabolic function and promotes the self-healing process in the knee.
The GenuTrain allows physiotherapy and gentle training to be started at an earlier stage. This enables your knee to recover thanks to active movement. After all, you know that being active is key to good health!
