PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS Your Push med knee brace offers a high level of support and protection to the knee joint. The knee joint is supported in the medio-lateral direction by means of a mechanical construction consisting of leaf spring joints and non-elastic connections. This does not obstruct flexion or extension of the knee. The stiffener hinges follow the natural pivoting point of the knee. The silicone application stimulates the propriocepsis of the knee joint, to adequately anticipate any imminent trauma. So-called comfort zones of padded material have been created around vulnerable areas of the knee. A proper anatomic fit and the material and the silicone application contribute to the brace remaining in place during walking. Its small volume enables the brace to be worn underneath clothing without being noticed. The brace is made of Sympress™, a high-quality comfortable material. The use of microfibres makes the inside feel soft and keeps the skin dry. The Push med knee brace can be washed normally.
Before washing, close the Velcro to protect the brace and other laundry. The brace can be washed at temperatures up to 30°C, on a delicate fabrics cycle or by hand. Do not use any bleaching agents. A gentle spin-dry cycle can be used: after this, hang the brace up to dry in the open air (notnear a heating source or in a tumble drier). To extend the brace’s service life, it should be dried after use, if necessary, before being stored.

There are no known disorders where the brace cannot or should not be worn. In the case of poor blood circulation in the limbs, a brace may cause hyperaemia. Avoid applying the brace too tightly in the beginning. Pain is always a sign of warning. If the pain persists or complaints deteriorate, it is advisable to consult your doctor or therapist.
Use of Push Med Knee Brace Left/Right 41-45Cm T5
The knee brace is available in 5 sizes. Place the thigh at an angle of 90° in relation to the lower leg. Then measure the circumference around the narrowest part below the knee joint. The table on the packaging shows the correct brace size for your knee.
A Slide the brace over the knee joint. To do this, hold the brace by the plastic stiffeners and pull it up the leg. Ensure that all the bands are loose.
