Yes, you can clean ACE™ Brand Braces and Supports. Close all straps and fasteners and hand wash with mild soap in warm (not hot) water. Rinse well and air dry. DO NOT machine wash, tumble dry, dry clean or use fabric softener or bleach on the brace. For general cleaning instructions, please go to our Care Instructions page.You can also refer to the product package and/or the individual product pages on the ACE™ Brand website for care instructions specific to each product.
You want the brace to fit snugly in order to get the benefits of warmth and compression, but you do not want it so tight that it starts to restrict blood flow. If it is uncomfortable, it is probably too tight.
Each product has a sizing guide on the package to help you determine the best product fit for you.
Our braces and supports are designed to be worn during the day only. They should not be worn overnight, therefore should be removed prior to going to bed. But as always, please consult with your physician for recommendations.
We do not recommend that you wear a brace or support while swimming, because wearing one in the water can shorten the life of the product’s materials. Also, the materials can become water logged and the support may not then fit the joint properly.
We try to include directions for all of our products on each product page on our website, so if you ever lose the outer box, you can always go there for help. For directions and accompanying illustrations for your particular product, go to the Wear & Care tab on that product detail page.
