Bauerfeind at the Olympic Games
Nowadays, it is hard to imagine the Olympic Games without Bauerfeind. The company has been a firm fixture of Olympic medical care since 2002. First of all, Bauerfeind provided a specialist orthopedic service exclusively for German athletes at the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City in 2002, in Athens in 2004, in Turin in 2006, and in Beijing in 2008.
The 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver represented a first: it marked Bauerfeind's debut as an official partner of an Olympic organizing committee and the company was thus on hand for the athletes of all participating nations. At the subsequent 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Bauerfeind was once again the exclusive supplier of supports, orthoses, medical compression stockings, and orthopedic foot orthoses. The company’s own orthotists were also once again on site to support the treatment of around 10,500 athletes from 204 nations. Bauerfeind products were used more than 700 times at these Games. The organizing committee of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi also relied on Bauerfeind. At the polyclinics in the three Olympic villages, the orthotists treated injured athletes and offered preventative care. Almost 400 Olympic athletes from 54 of the 88 participating countries made use of this service in Sochi.
