QUICK START INSTRUCTIONS

    INITIAL SETUP
  1. Remove the Kneewell device from packaging (cardboard, paper, plastic).
  2. Locate the black plastic end of the Thigh Strap. With the jagged side up, insert it into the gray Ratchet Mechanism until you hear 3 to 5 clicks.
  3. On the opposite side of the device, open the Cam Buckle lock and pull the strap out of the Cam Buckle.
  4. FITTING AND SIZING
  5. Find a chair, with enough room to comfortably extend your leg while using the device.
  6. If the Length Adjust Knobs are not visible, slide the Knee Pad down.
  7. Loosen both Length Adjust Knobs, until the Aluminum Frame slides freely.
  8. With the treatment leg slightly bent, place the heel pad at the outside of the foot and adjust the length of the frame to the outside of the mid-thigh.
  9. Tighten both Length Adjust Knobs, until the Aluminum Frame does not move freely.
  10. Slide the Knee Pad back up, carefully pulling the fabric over the Length Adjust Knobs.
  11. PUTTING ON THE DEVICE
  12. With the Ratchet Mechanism facing the outside of the leg, place your foot under the Knee Pad and through the device, resting it on the Heel Pad.
  13. Adjust the Knee Pad up or down as needed, so that it is resting on the knee.
  14. Feed the free end of the Thigh Strap under the thigh, and then through the Cam Buckle near the inside of the leg. Do not lock the Cam Buckle yet.
  15. BEGINNING TREATMENT
  16. Apply pressure on the upper frame, until the leg is comfortably extended, then pull the Thigh Strap tight and lock the Cam Buckle.
  17. To apply additional tension and increase stretch intensity, use the gray Ratchet Mechanism on the outside of the leg. Do not over tighten. As rehabilitation progresses over weeks and months, tension can be gradually increased. Determine a use plan for your needs with your medical professional.
  18. ENDING TREATMENT
  19. To stop treatment, open the Cam Buckle and remove the Thigh Strap. Then pull your foot out of the device.
  20. To prepare for your next treatment, loosen the Ratchet Mechanism by pressing the black release tab on the top of the mechanism and pulling the black plastic end of the Thigh Strap back to the initial position.
  21. Store the device securely until your next session! For visual instructions, see the Quick Start Video or Full User Manual included with your device (pdf version above).
