Questions on DonJoy Drytex Adjustable Patella Donut

- Please explain the term "open popliteal". As I understand, the popliteal area is in the posterior part of the knee. Is there a hole in that area? If so, the picture doesn't show that - it shows a hole in the anterior part of the knee. It would be great to have a picture that demonstrates the "open popliteal" option.
- Yes Open Popliteal means a hole in the back on the knee brace.
