The key to a proper fit is in your measurements. Knowing them assures that the size you select is the size that will fit — the first time.
Patients should be measured when they first get up in the morning to prevent measurements based upon the affected area’s circumference after swelling has occurred. Measure the patient while he or she is standing. If the fitting can not take place before the patient has been on his/her feet for some time, the patient’s legs and feet should be elevated for 15 minutes prior to taking the measurements. Take snug measurements against the skin. Avoid measuring over socks or slacks. Never remove any wound dressings.
How to Measure
