Open all straps and the two Velcro fasteners.
Now put your leg into a 45-degree angle flexion position. Wrap the orthosis tightly around your leg from the back and close it with the two Velcro strips.
Make sure that the kneecap is in the middle of the patella recess.
The centres of the brace joints should be at the top edge of the kneecap and just behind the lateral centre line of the leg.
Now close the bottom strap and then the top strap.
If possible, walk a few steps and check if the brace is properly fitted. Correct the fit of the brace at the leg, if required.
