This brace has the wrap around design rather than the pull-up sleeve design. This makes it much easier for you to wear it without much struggle.

The brace has two Velcro straps (upper and lower) with front closure. You can therefore easily wear it then adjust each strap individually for a snug fit with just the right amount of compression. 

If in the past you’ve had one of those knee braces that bunch up behind the knee in a very uncomfortable way, worry no more. This knee brace is cut out behind the knee to avoid this discomfort. 


Each side of the brace has a hinge which gives extra joint stability. This is useful in conditions where the medial (inner) and lateral (outer) ligaments of the knee are injured.


You can remove the hinges if you do not need this medial and lateral support.
Using a machine to wash this knee brace can damage the brace itself as well as the Velcro straps. It is therefore recommended that it is had washed then air dried.
