Then fasten the lower strap at the back of the thigh, followed by the lower strap at the back of the lower leg.
  • Then the front Velcro straps at the shin (4) and the thigh are fastened, followed by the upper strap at the rear of the thigh. Please ensure that the product is secure but not too tight in order to prevent pinching.
