Atlanta, Georgia (July 30, 2015) – Bauerfeind, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of medical products including orthopedic braces and supports for every joint and the back, as well as compression socks and insoles, announces a partnership with the National Basketball Athletic Trainers Association (NBATA).
As part of the multi-year partnership, Bauerfeind will be the Official Brace of NBATA and the NBATA will endorse Bauerfeind’s medical functional support, brace and compression therapy products.
“This is a natural, organic partnership since the NBATA has been a Bauerfeind customer since 2003 when we started with one team buying the GenuTrain knee brace,” said Kevin Johnson, NBATA Chairman and Head Athletic Trainer for the Philadelphia 76ers. “Today, 27 teams purchase a variety of Bauerfeind products and this formal partnership brings together two organizations who are dedicated to providing the best sports medical care solutions for professional basketball athletes.”
Bauerfeind will launch Trainer Talk where NBATA trainers will share their inside knowledge and experiences on Bauerfeind.com. Topics will include how to get the most out of your workouts and brace features and benefits such as medical grade compression, proprioception, increased compliance, and durability. The NBATA trainers will also share content with Bauerfeind USA consumers that will help them get the most out of the company’s products.
“Bauerfeind’s medical and sports heritage aligns with the NBATA’s medical and sports athletic training and expertise,” said Gregory J. Vaughn, M.D., CEO at Bauerfeind USA. “NBATA trainers work with the best athletes in the world and this partnership allows us to bring their medical and athletic training, knowledge and expertise to our consumers.”
