Conductive Pads: Fix to the arm strap using the press studs. Please ensure that the conductive pads are placed back onto the Perspex film after use to help prolong the adhesiveness.
Arm Strap: Attach the arm strap with the delivery unit to the outside of the upper arm. Rotate the strap between arms each day. Please do not over tighten - the conductive pads are very sensitive and no significant pressure is required to maintain connectivity. After putting the delivery unit into the arm strap's pouch, please ensure that the electrical lead in the arm strap is inserted fully into the bottom of the delivery unit.
Please Note: You may find that included in your complete kit are carbon rubber pads (x2) and a bottle of conductive gel (250ml). The carbon rubber pads can be used in place of the conductive pads but will require the application of a small amount of conductive gel to ensure good electrical connectivity with the skin. The conductive gel complies will all medical regulations and is propylene glycol free. These products are being phased out due to the effectiveness of the conductive pads, so please do not be alarmed if your complete kit does not contain these items.
Warning: Do not use any other gel in conjunction with the Arc4Health. Even some medical grade conductive gels can contain propylene glycol, which is a component ingredient of anti-freeze and may react with the skin.
Never strap to an injured arm but when possible rotate between arms once daily.
