Application: All you have to do is connect the dots!
Push Braces include a “dot system” to help you secure each strap to the proper place, in the proper order. Simply start with the strap that has one dot on the hook-and-loop pad at the end, and secure it to the hook-and-loop pad on the brace that has a matching dot. Repeat with the strap that has two dots, and so on, till the brace is secured. It’s that easy!
Each brace includes precise instructions for how to wrap each strap, although a professional fitting is always recommended for optimal comfort and support.
