How To Use Your Hinged Knee Brace

Using your Hinged Knee Brace

This brace is used to support and stabilize the knee

  1. The brace will be fitted to you in-office
  2. Open the knee brace so that it is flat, and then wrap it around the back of the affected knee
  3. Secure the brace around the thigh first so that it is snug but not too tight
  4. Ensure that the patella (knee cap) is centered in the middle of the opening of the brace
  5. Secure the bottom of the brace around the calf
  6. Take the Velcro strap around the thigh and feed through the plastic ring. Pull to desired tension, making sure blood flow is not restricted, and adhere it to the Velcro
  7. Repeat the process for the calf strap
  8. Wear the knee brace for the recommended time prescribed by your doctor
  9. To remove, do not simply slide the knee brace off. Completely open all straps and both flaps prior to taking it off
