GelBand Arm Band: Tennis & Golfer's Elbow, Arthritis & Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Relief

The GelBand Arm Band tennis/golfer's elbow strap from FLA Orthopedics is used to provide comfortable and focused compression without restricting circulation to the forearm or hand. The Arm Band is one of the more versatile orthopedic elbow care products on the market today, thanks in no small part to a specially-designed Viscoelastic GelCell® insert that can be cooled for cold therapy or heated to provide penetrating heat therapy to the affected area. The GelBand Arm Band is 100% latex free.

Manufacturer's Product Description: The GelBand Arm Band applies compression to the working portion of the muscle and tendon without restricting circulation. Eliminates stress on the injury, reduces inflammation and pain, and speeds healing. Includes patented GelCell™ feature that can be heated or chilled for optional thermal therapy. Ideal for wear during athletic activity, work, or rest. Fits right or left arm. Colors: Black or Beige.

Sizing Information: To determine your size, measure around the forearm.

Indications:
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Strains and Pains

Arm Band Benefits:
The Arm Band works to eliminate stress on the injured area by shortening the working portion of the muscle by applying compression without restricting circulation. This allows healing to begin and reduces inflammation and pain. The unique GelCell® will focus the compression where needed (usually just below the elbow) and not around the arm.

Product Features:
  • Durable, comfortable material ensures lasting wearability.
  • Elastic tension strap enhances compression control.
  • GelCell® focuses pressure on the extensor muscle where needed - not around the arm.
  • Provides penetrating heat or cold for therapy.
  • Look lock and plastic tongue closure for easy, non-binding fit.
Application Instructions: With Arm Band loose and hook and loop strap closed, slip band on arm and position with GelCell® centered above or below forearm depending where compression is needed. When in place, readjust strap snugly.

Care Instructions:
Fasten closures. Hand wash in cold water with mild soap. Wrap in a towel to remove excess water (do not twist or wring). Air dry away from heat. Do not tumble dry. Do not bleach.

Instructions for Cold Therapy: Cold therapy is typically used up to 72 hours following injury and can soothe nerve endings, reduce swelling and inflammation.
  1. Remove GelCell® from Arm Band and place in freezer for at least 1 hour.
  2. Insert Back into Arm Band and position on arm where needed. When in place, readjust strap snugly. For long term freezer storage, place GelCell in sealed plastic bag.
  3. As soon as possible after activity, use cold therapy on elbow for a minimum of 10 minutes and no longer than 20 minutes.
Instructions for Heat Therapy: Heat therapy is typically recommended for chronic aches and pains such as muscle soreness. Hot therapy sends penetrating heat into painful areas to help increase circulation and soothe pain.
  1. Remove GelCell® from Arm Band and place in microwave.
  2. All microwaves are different, but typically heat on highest setting for NO MORE THAN 15 SECONDS!
  3. The GelCell® gives off penetrating moist heat and should not feel hot upon first touch. If GelCell® is hot to the touch, then the gel core will be too hot for comfort. Ensure GelCell® is not too hot when held in place before inserting into Arm Band.
  4. Insert back into Arm Band and position on arm where needed. When in place readjust strap snugly.
