Remove any metal stays if possible.
Close all contact closures and hand wash in warm water with mild soap.

Note: U-shaped buttress is removable and should be placed where support is needed.

  1. Unfasten and loosen the straps at the thigh and calf.
  2. With black outside exposed, grasp the edge of the wider portion of the sleeve, keeping the seam positioned to posterior of leg.
  3. Insert foot into sleeve and pull onto leg.
  4. Position the sleeve so that stays or hinges are parallel to each other on the side of leg, and the top of the front cut out aligns with the top of the kneecap (patella) and rear cut out is centered in the back of the knee (popliteal) as required.
  5. Position the support so the buttress is in contact with the kneecap (patella) to provide support.
  6. Sleeve should sit on leg with approximately 6″ of material above mid kneecap (patella).
  7. Fasten the support straps at the thigh and calf as required for comfortable fit without inhibiting circulation.
