This product is made from Orthotex fabric, an open 3-dimensional knit that is a non-latex alternative to neoprene. It offers breathability, elasticity, therapeutic compression, comfort and heat control. It is less "hot" to wear than neoprene, thus appropriate for long term wear or wear in warm climates, and ideal for wearers who are allergic to or irritated by neoprene fabric. Four-way stretch material provides even compression over the prominences of the joint. Multi-function buttress surrounds kneecap (patella) and provides compression and stabilization. Adjustable as shown on package. Sheer mesh elastic opening over back of knee for additional wearing comfort.
For mild runner's knee (chondromalachia), mild patellar misalignment and instability, nonspecific knee pain, bursitis, soft tissue injuries, heat retention and compression.
- Easy slip-on, slip-off application
- X-Large fits knee 16.0 - 17.5 in (40.6 - 44.4 cm)
To select the perfect size, measure around the bend of your knee.
Easy to apply: Slip the support up and over the knee until the opening in front is aligned over kneecap (patella). When properly applied, the support should fit snug but not so tight that it deeply depresses the skin.
Care: Hand wash in cold water with a mild soap. Rinse thoroughly until water is clear. Wrap in a towel to remove excess water. Air dry away from heat (do not twist or wring). Do not tumble dry. Do not bleach..
