PROPER CUFF PLACEMENT

Only place the straps on the arms and legs as indicated in the accompanying image. 

Arm straps should be placed above, not over the bicep. The gels should be between the arm and the body. Leg straps should be placed high on the leg close to the crotch. The gels should be positioned on the inside of the leg.

  • Do not overtighten

  • Check for capillary refill

  • No numbness or tingling

  • Clean straps often - Rinse in warm water

  • Do not use longer than 25 minutes.

TIGHTENING THE ARM STRAP

The dial is marked to help you set and record settings. You should only rotate the dial "clockwise". If you want to loosen the strap, just lift the tab, flex, and flex to let the strap self-loosen.


Measure your upper arm above the bicep. Follow the vertical line on the chart to determine the number of clicks to achieve ideal pressure to activate MetaBoost™.

Prior to your first use, perform the 3-minute assessment to fine-tune the tightness of your strap (usually just 1 or 2 clicks).

If you feel numbness or tingling, lift the tab and let the strap "relax" then close the tab and rotate the dial clockwise 2 clicks.

TIGHTEN THE LEG STRAP

The dial is marked to help you set and record settings. You should only rotate the dial "clockwise". If you want to loosen the strap, just lift the tab, flex, and flex to let the strap self-loosen.


Refer to the chart at the right to determine how much to tighten your strap. One full rotation equals 26 clicks. For example, if the chart indicates "60" clicks, rotate the dial two full turns (56), then add four more clicks.

The settings are determined by limb circumference. And deliver approximately 100 mmHg (1.8psi) of pressure. You may increase or decrease the tightness based on your need.

If you feel numbness or tingling, lift the tab and let the strap "relax" then close the tab and rotate the dial clockwise 2 clicks.
