centres of the hinges (extension wedges) are on a level with the top edge of the kneecap.
Make sure that the brace is not twisted on your leg.
First fasten the lower front calf strap, then the upper back thigh strap. Keep your knee in a flexed position and push both joints towards the back of the leg.
Now fasten the lower back thigh strap.
Make sure that you do not have the hinge joints positioned in front of the midline of the leg.
Now fasten the upper front calf strap.
Then the upper back calf strap, and finally the front thigh strap.
