BeActive® Brace Instructions
Apply BeActive® Brace using these simple steps.
STEP 1: If lower back pain is on the left side
Slip wrap on the LEFT leg with the (L) on the top, just under the kneecap. Center the (L) just under the left kneecap. The pressure pad should then be on the outside outer edge of the calf muscle. Note: If pressure pad is not on the outside outer edge of the calf muscle, adjust accordingly.
If lower back pain is on the right side:
Follow step 1, applying the wrap to the RIGHT leg with the (R) on the top just under the right kneecap. Then follow step 1.
With the wrap in the proper position, pull the strap through the loop fitting, pulling firmly forward across the front of the wrap. Be sure there is firm-strong pressure from the pressure pad on your outside outer edge of the calf muscle. Note: The wrap should feel tight, but not uncomfortably tight. Loosen slightyly if uncomfortable, but keeping it firm.
Adhere strap to the brace.
Note: After tightening, if pressure pad is not on the outside outer edge of the calf muscle, adjust accordingly.
When to use:
The BeActive® Brace should initially be worn for up to 2 hours at a time. If it remains comfortable, the wrap can be worn for longer periods as needed. If your lower back pain occurs in the center of your back, try to determine if the pain is more towards the right or the left side and then apply the wrap the that side. If your lower back pain is exactly in the center of your low back, first try the wrap on your right leg and if no relief then switch to your left leg.
Note: Wearing wraps on both legs at the same time is not recommended.
The BeActive® wrap fits calf circumferences sizes 12.5 inches to 18 inches measured around the fullest part of your calf. The BeActive® wrap is effective when worn on a single leg, on the side of the pain.
