Find the starting area on the wrist. Using either wrist, the correct area is in between the two tendons on the underside of the wrist – two finger widths from the first crease in the wrist
Clean the area first. Apply a small drop of gel and spread in a circle about the size of a large coin with an even sheen
Place the device over the gelled area and fasten device snugly. Press the power button to turn on the device. Starting at power level 1, increase stimulation until tingling is felt in palm and middle finger at a comfortable level. Press the power button for 3 seconds to turn off.
Hypo-allergenic Reliefband® Gel:
The unique characteristics, the material, size and shape of the contacts can significantly impact efficacy and are essential to the delivery of a consistent pulse. The user interface provides the ability to accommodate the uniqueness of each person’s individual physiology and sensitivity.
The Pulse Generator at the “heart” of the device holds proprietary electronic components and software to control, develop and deliver a unique pulse with highly specific waveform characteristics. Only these very precise pulses will produce the desired clinical effect.
While still on the wrist, turn Reliefband® off periodically to determine if you still have nausea and vomiting symptoms. If you still have symptoms, then turn it back on immediately.
When finished using Reliefband®, take it off your wrist and remove the gel from your wrist and the device with a tissue.
If there is an excessive amount of gel, then the device may not provide enough tingling. If you cannot feel the tingling sensation, then clean both the device and the wrist and re-apply the gel.
Try Reliefband® on each wrist and use it on the wrist where the greatest tingling is felt at the lowest setting.
For some people, applying and rubbing in the gel twice assists in nerve stimulation.
Reliefband® Gel should be re-applied every 2-3 hours, any time after washing, or if stimulation decreases.
If you have sensitive skin, then wipe the band, contacts, and skin around wrist with a clean, damp wipe (no soap or cleanser) before reapplying gel.
Store Reliefband® in a safe, dry place. Keep it away from young children.
When not using Reliefband®, be sure to turn the power off to extend battery life.
You can apply extra gel if the tingle feels too strong on level 1.
