    Helpful tips:

    The bandage regiment and duration of the bandage use are recommended by a medical doctor. 
    Putting the bandage on, you should unfasten all Velcro fasteners and slack the straps. Extremity position while wearing should conform with flexion angle of the stiffening ribs. Patella must be exactly in the hole which appears in the process of fastening. 
    Strap fastening is carried out “from the joint”: first the straps coterminous to the joint, then – the other ones. Having fastened all the straps, it is recommended to check out if the position of the bandage on the leg is correct.
