    Measurement

    • Snug Fit Measurement:  Devices are sized at a compressed fit.
      • Measuring loose vs. skin tight can be 2-2 ½ inches.
    • Knee Circumference
    • Calf, Knee Cap, Thigh, Thigh Length
    • Can be dictated by support used.

    Fitting

    • Fit from the back of the knee to the front of the knee.
    • Best fit is from sitting position with knee in slight bend.
    • Fit the opening for knee cap slightly higher on the knee cap.  Approximately the upper half of the knee cap.  The tendency is to wear the support too low.  When fitted, brace will slide down into proper position.
    • Upper part of support should be higher to groin area. (braces have tendency to slip down so fit higher)
    • Straps below the knee closest to the knee cap should be adjusted first.  If brace is fitted correctly, the calf will hold the position of the brace as the strap just below the knee will be tightened with a smaller circumference than the calf.
    • Strap above the knee should be adjusted last. 
    • Straps can be adjusted for proper tension on the patella.

     

    Post Fitting

    • Make sure brace has been fitted with appropriate strap tightness and has not slid down leg too far.
    • Upper part of the brace should not dig into groin area
    • Add compression from straps starting with just below knee first and working bottom to top
    • Decrease compression from top to bottom
    • Disengaging Velcro and securing tabs prior and after wearing will help with future fitting.
