Donning/fitting instructions

Fix the calf support pad in the brace so that the upper edge of the pad is aligned with the marking on the brace. The lower end of the pad with the divided tongue should align with the top edge of the malleolus (ankle bone). If the pad is too long it may be cut off at the top.
Caution: The pad should not project beyond the marking.
Align the posterior stabilisation rods in the centre of the back of the leg. If necessary, the medial and lateral rods can also be moulded.
Wrap the sides around the leg so that the kneecap remains uncovered. To achieve a perfect fit around the leg, the two inner sections of the brace can be adjusted.
First close the thigh straps, then the calf straps. Tighten the Velcro fastener directly above the knee again.

Wearing directions

Important notes:
Occasionally pain may develop in the calf during the first few hours of use. If this has not reduced considerably after 24 hours, the doctor should be contacted. You should also contact your doctor in the case of sudden pain, swelling, loss of sensation or a feeling of coldness in the foot or if the toes become blue. In this case, while you are waiting for the doctor, loosen the Velcro fasteners and keep the leg completely still until you are given further instructions.
