Which Size is Right for Me?
Available in eight different sizes (including a new kids' size), it is important to ensure you choose the right size to ensure the support fits anatomically. Measure the circumference of the thigh 15cm above the kneecap (as shown) and then consult the table below to find the right size. If your measurement falls between two sizes, we recommend that you choose the next size up for optimal comfort.

Targets the Most Effective Area
The Donjoy Fortilax Knee Support is anatomically designed to provide targeted compression to the most effective areas. With compression-reduced edges, the support focuses the compression around the most important parts of the knee, such as the patella, meniscus and ligaments.
Made from breathable, biocompatible yarn, the Donjoy Elastic Knee Support is extremely comfortable to wear. Featuring elasticated stretch zones over the patella and at the back of the knee, you can move freely using the support without feeling restricted.
The material of the Donjoy Knee Support is latex and PVC-free to prevent your body from reacting badly to the support, meaning you won't end up with any irritating rashes forming on your leg.
Easy to Use
Using the visual aids incorporated into Donjoy Fortilax design, it is easy to position in the correct way for an anatomical fit. The elasticated fabric makes the support easy and painless to slip on over your knee and stretch around till it fits perfectly.
