Sizing Guide (Updated)

How to select the right size brace?

General

It is recommended that brace fitting and adjustment be carried out by a suitable healthcare provider or through your local POD Active dealer.
A list of POD Active dealers can be found here.

NOTE: Due to varying shapes, knee measurements should only be used as a guide when determining the correct brace size.

1. KNEE WIDTH
Measure across the centre of the knee using the POD Sizing Tool. Take measurements in a weight bearing position at full extension (i.e. with leg fully straight).

2. KNEE CIRCUMFERENCE
Measure the circumference of the knee directly underneath the kneecap using a soft tape measure or string. Take measurements in a weight bearing position at full extension (i.e. with leg fully straight).

 

3. TRY BRACE ON
Walk and bend your leg to aid the brace in settling. The brace should feel comfortably snug.
If the measurements indicate you are between sizes, we recommend to go up a size.
