Engineered for performance and comfort.
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.
- Polycentric hinged bars provide excellent side-to-side support and stability
- Opens flat in front for easy application over injured, swollen or tender knees
- Four-way stretch material provides even compression over all the anatomical prominences of the joint
- Opening over back of knee minimizes binding, provides for additional wearing comfort
- Upper and lower hook-and-loop encircling straps maintain stabilizer in correct position; straps are adjustable and removable
- For patellar misalignment and instability, cruciate and collateral ligament support, medial/lateral cartilage support, patellar tendonitis and subluxation
- This size fits 16.0-17.0 in. (40.6-43.1 cm) around the bend of your knee
Wrap support around the knee until the front opening surrounds the kneecap (patella). Adjust the support so the hinged bars are correctly aligned along the midline of the knee. When properly aligned, the support should fit snug but not so tight that it deeply depresses the skin. Care: Fasten all hook and loop closures. 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..
