Care & Maintenance

In order to ensure the longevity, function and hygiene of your orthosis, it is important to clean and maintain your orthosis on a regular basis.

 

Please be sure to:

  • Wear a clean under-layer (socks/undershirt) everyday within the orthosis.
  • Use a damp cloth to wipe away dirt, bodily oils and dust on a regular basis.
  • If residue from sweat and bodily oil are not removed with a damp cloth, warm soapy water or damp cloth with rubbing alcohol may be used to clean plastic surfaces. Stay away from leather and foam materials.
  • Air dry or towel dry. Never apply direct heat.
  • Do not immerse orthosis in water. This may damage metal componentry and delaminate the rubbers and foam padding.
  • Never use abrasive cleaners.
  • If metal joints are present, a lubricant with Teflon may┬ábe added to the joints occasionally to reduce friction and squeaking.
