Frequently asked questions about a knee brace

Wearing a knee brace may seem simple, but a number of questions may arise about its use. We list some of these questions for you below. Read on quickly below for the answers.

Do you wear a knee brace over or under your trousers?

Wear the knee brace directly on the skin and therefore not over trousers. An advanced knee brace is made of soft material. This not only makes the brace comfortable, but also prevents irritation. In very rare cases, skin irritation does occur. If this is the case, it is best to contact a specialist. If possible, it is advisable to wear something between the brace and your skin. If you are allergic to any of the substances in the brace, it is best to choose a brace made from a different material.

Is the purchase of a knee brace covered by health insurance?

A knee brace is reimbursed by health insurance in some cases. But this varies greatly depending on the insurance company and policy. Always consult your health insurer before purchasing a knee brace. This ensures that there are no surprises.

Can I wear a knee brace at night?

How long a knee brace should be worn depends entirely on which knee injury you have and to what extent. A knee brace provides you with support and stability. It is advisable to wear a brace during the day. If it is necessary for treatment to wear a brace in the evening or at night, this is not a problem. Just make sure you loosen the brace slightly to avoid pinching the blood vessels. In doubt? Always contact your doctor or specialist.

Is it bad if a knee brace is too tight?

Determining the right knee brace size is often more difficult than you probably think. However, it is important to choose the correct size. If you buy a brace in the wrong size, and it is too tight, the brace can pinch and cause blood flow to deteriorate. If the brace is too loose, it will not provide the right support. Both are obviously uncomfortable. It is therefore important that you always choose the proper size. If you find this difficult or if you are unsure, contact our customer service team.

Which knee brace do I need?

Which knee support you should choose depends entirely on your injury, complaint, wishes or which sport you want to use the brace for. There are many types of knee braces on the market, each with their own characteristics and special features. Not sure which brace is best for you? Contact your doctor or specialist.
