- Diaphyseal Sleeves had a high breakage rate. This breakage can make the knee pain and discomfort worse.
- In February 2013, the Sleeve was recalled by the FDA. However, the item got produced between 2008 and 2012.
So the potential effects could have been an issue for hundreds or thousands. This means you could only now be experiencing the results of the poorly made or designed product. Also, you usually don't know what to do.
