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 kneecap using a POD Sizing Tool or Calipers. 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.

Due to varying shapes, knee measurements should only be used as a guide when determining the correct brace size.
It is recommended that brace fitting and adjustment be carried out by a suitable healthcare provider or through your local POD Active dealer.
