The Pro-Tec Short Sleeve Knee Brace is great for keeping the knee warm and providing moderate support. Pro-Tec Athletics'Short Sleeve Knee Brace provides compression to the knee region surrounding the patella. The sleeve provides warmth and promotes circulation, enhancing the healing process. In addition, this brace has an infrapatellar buttress which helps support the patella and may improve patellar tracking.
Short Sleeve is not quite as hot or cumbersome as most knee sleeves because it is modified below the knee to reduce sweat. It includes an infrapatellar buttress, U-shaped tubing within a Cool Max material, to cradle the patella. The open patella is to keep unwarranted pressure off of the knee cap.

does it stretch and become loose over time; can you reverse this.
Also, washing instructions??
We have not had any problems with this product stretching out over time. The washing instructions from the manufacturer are: Rinse in warm water and drip dry. You may want to rinse out the brace after each use if dirty or has a lot of body salts on it.
