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.
What size leg fits the brace?
12.5 inches to 18 inches. The Velcro adheres to the neoprene well past the velcro base. It is worn right below the knee. The "R" on top for the right leg, the L on top on the Left leg.
What is the difference between the "Regular" and the "Premium or Deluxe" Be Active® Brace?
The "Premium" is made of a more durable neoprene fabric with small ventilation holes in the fabric for more comfort.
What is the BeActive® made of?
80% Neoprene and 20% Polyester. If you are allergic to neoprene, do not wear this and discontinue use.
What makes the BeActive® Work?
The brace itself does not provide the relief. It is the pressure cushion pressing on the "correct" pressure point on the outer part of the calf muscle. We call it "5 o'clock" on the right leg or "7 o'clock" on the left as seen in the commercial on the website. When you apply the brace, it is most important to adjust the brace to get the cushion on the "correct" spot.
How long do I wear the BeActive®?
As long as you want pain relief. The brace is not a cure. You need to be applying the pressure to the correct point on the outer muscle of the calf to get relief. Initially do not wear for more than 2 hours, to get used to it, then wear as long as you feel comfortable
