Sizing of the Sports Hinged Knee Brace
Due to the location of the twin straps on the brace, to find the perfect size we recommend measuring the circumference of your thigh 15cm above the centre of the kneecap. Once you have this measurement, please consult the sizing chart beneath to find the perfect Sports Knee Brace for you.
