Tips For Properly Wearing and Caring for OrthoSleeve Products
OrthoSleeve's compression bracing and sock solutions are designed to provide optimal comfort and support for various orthopedic conditions. To maximize the effectiveness and longevity of your OrthoSleeve products, it's important to wear and care for them properly. In this comprehensive guide, we'll share valuable tips and techniques to ensure you get the most out of your OrthoSleeve experience.
- Choose the Right Size:
The first step in properly wearing OrthoSleeve products is selecting the correct size. Follow the size chart and measuring instructions we provide on each product page to ensure a snug and comfortable fit. Wearing the right size will provide the appropriate compression and support your body needs.
- Proper Application Techniques:
When putting on OrthoSleeve compression sleeves, it's crucial to follow the proper application techniques. Start by turning the product inside out and gradually slide in onto the targeted area. Smooth out any wrinkles or folds to ensure even compression distribution. Take your time and be gentle to avoid unnecessary stretching or damaging the material.

- Wear them Consistently:
For optimal results, it's important to wear OrthoSleeve products consistently as directed by your healthcare professional or by our product instructions. Constant usage helps maintain the desired compression level, supports muscle recovery, and aids in injury prevention.
- Washing and Cleaning:
Regular cleaning is essential to keep your OrthoSleeve products fresh and hygienic. Follow the specific care instructions provided for each product, but in general, hand washing with mild detergent and air drying is recommended. Avoid using harsh chemicals, bleach, or fabric softeners as they can damage the fabric and affect the product's efficacy.
- Rotate and Replace:
Over time, OrthoSleeve products may experience wear and tear due to regular use. To ensure optimal performance, consider rotating between multiple pairs if applicable. This allows each pair to rest and recover between uses. Additionally, be aware of the recommended lifespan of your specific OrthoSleeve product, and replace them accordingly to maintain their effectiveness.
- Store Properly:
When not in use, it's important to store your OrthoSleeve products properly to protect them from damage. Keep them in a clean and dry place, away from direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, or sharp objects. Storing them in a designated bag or container can help keep them organized and prevent accidental damage.
- Regular Inspections:
Periodically inspect your OrthoSleeve products for any signs of wear, tear, or stretching. Check for loose threads, holes, or any loss of elasticity. If you notice any significant damage or a decrease in performance, it may be time to replace the product.
Properly wearing and caring for your OrthoSleeve products is crucial to ensure their effectiveness and longevity. By following these tips, you can maximize the benefits of compression, support your recovery, and maintain the quality of your OrthoSleeve products. Remember, when in doubt, always refer to the specific care instructions we provide for your particular OrthoSleeve product.
