Q. Explain the popliteal cutout option?
A. The popliteal space is the area located in the back of the knee. This brace has an option for the sleeve to have continuous material in the back of the support (No Pop Cutout) or have the back of the knee cutout (with Pop Cutout). Usually, this option is up to an individual's preference and comfort. Some individuals like the added compression with no cutout while others prefer the popliteal cutout version that reduces bunching up of material behind the knee.
Q. What is Drytex?
A. Drytex is a neoprene alternative constructed of a unique nylon core and polyester Lycra fabric that allows for improved airflow. This fabric provides compression and support, yet allows for breathability. It is ideal for patients who have allergies or irritations to neoprene or live in warm weather climates.
