Size Selection: The Band-it is designed to secure around the ankle, with the body of the device extending over the top of the clients shoes to distribute pressure over a larger area. It is important that a client wear shoes and socks during Band-it use. Measure the circumference of the ankle, two finger widths above the malleoli (Fig. 1). When measuring, the client should be wearing shoes, socks and applicable orthoses.
Fasten Band-It: Align accent webbing with Achilles tendon and fasten buckle (Fig. 2). Buckle will not be centered. Adjust webbing using D-ring. Band-It should be snug, but not constricting (Fig. 3).
Adjust Dynamic Strap component: For a static effect, pull the webbing on the topside of the tension lock. This eliminates the Dynamic component (Fig. 4). To make use of the dynamic component, decrease the tension of the webbing (Fig. 5)
Note: The use of dynamic positioning should be based on the clients needs, desired positioning effect and therapists recommendations.
