  1. Put on a clean, snug fitting T-shirt or bodysock. Make sure it is smooth and wrinkle-free. It should extend beyond the edges of the orthosis to protect the skin. 
  2. Spread the orthosis open. 
  3. Place the orthosis onto your body, making sure that the waist indentations line up correctly with your waist. 
  4. Tighten straps to the mark indicated. If the straps are not marked, tighten until the orthosis fits snugly.
