The pressure pad in the Push Sports Patella Brace applies pressure to the knee tendon and effectively supports the kneecap. As a result, pain around the kneecap is reduced. With each step, the brace applies intermitting pressure to the knee tendon. This results in a comfortable and relieving amount of pressure applied.
If you are experiencing kneecap pain, it is worthwhile to visit a sport physiotherapist or sport physician for a correct diagnosis.
Correct use of your brace requires a detailed diagnosis of the cause of your pain complaints or instability. Always consult your GP, a physiotherapist or a specialist before applying the brace.

Applying the Brace
Before use: remove the protective foil from the pad.
1. Bend the leg. Place the patella brace on the knee tendon immediately below the kneecap, with the kneecap fitting in the recess.
2. Hold the pad with one hand and use the other hand to wrap the brace around the leg.
3. Close the hook and loop material as tightly as possible, without pinching. If the strap fails to close on the hook and loop material, use the strap's other fastener.
How do I choose a brace?
If a brace has been prescribed or recommended, it is wise to go to a professional establishment that specialises in medical aids or rehabilitation articles. Some physiotherapists sell braces and they can also give you good advice. Choosing the right size and type of brace requires additional know-how. Always consult an expert for this kind of specialised work.
