Information on Ordering


How do you avoid a mistake when ordering for your patient? This product should be ordered when the doctor has made the measurements and fitted by the doctor to avoid mistakes in the process of off loading the affected side of the knee.

Choose the right size by marking the mid point of the patella with the patient standing in the schuss position. Measure the circumference of the thigh at 15cm above this point. Before you choose from the drop down list write down your patients indication (is the medial or lateral compartment affected) then the side and finally size before you even touch the drop down menu.

x=1=XS=33-39 cm
x=2=S=39-47 cm
x=3=M=47-53 cm
x=4=L=53-60 cm
x=5=XL=60-67 cm
x=6=XXL=67-75 cm
x=7=XXXL=75-82.5 cm

Tip on the use of drop down menus


After you have chosen, click off the menu and unbold the choice before you roll your mouse wheel because you might inadvertantly change your choice with the roll of the wheel.
