Bauerfeind at the Olympic Games
Initially, Bauerfeind offered its orthopedic supply service to the German athletes at the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City in 2002, Athens in 2004, Turin in 2006, and Beijing in 2008.
The 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver represented a first: for the first time, Bauerfeind was an official partner of an Olympics organizing committee and was thus on hand for the athletes of all participating nations. 2012 was the biggest Olympics mission in the company's history to date: in London, a dedicated team of technicians offered medical care to all 10,500 athletes from 204 nations in the polyclinic at the Olympic Village. Bauerfeind supports, orthoses, medical compression stockings, and orthopedic insoles came to the aid of athletes on more than 700 (!) occasions.
In 2010, Bauerfeind was an official partner of an Olympics organizing committee for the first time. At the Winter Olympics in Canada, Bauerfeind had "Friend of the Games" status and was thus part of the central medical provision system.
Since there were two venues, this meant: one Bauerfeind team was deployed in the Olympic Village in Vancouver and one in the Olympic Village in Whistler, nearly two hours away by car. For the first time, not only were the German Olympians supplied with supports and orthoses from Bauerfeind in the event of injury, but athletes from all participating nations could also take advantage of Bauerfeind's orthopedic service.
Moreover, a package of Bauerfeind products for rapid first aid was available at all Olympic venues.
In Beijing, Bauerfeind supported the physicians and physiotherapists in the provision of medical care to the German teams, thereby building upon the positive collaboration with the Olympic athletes and their support team from previous games. The orthopedic supply team was present at the German camp in Beijing to provide the athletes with supports, orthoses and compression stockings.
