Step by Step Instructions
Find a comfortable location to relax. Position pads by placing a pad on each hip. If you are right-handed place the ratchet pad on your right hip. If you are left-handed place the ratchet pad on your left hip. Hook the belt and tighten using your hand closest to the buckle.
Stand up. Place a hand on each pad and move the belt toward the widest point of your hips.
Tip: Belt should be lower than you think.
Use your hand closest to the buckle to pull the strap and tighten the belt. The belt should be snug.
Sit back down and roll onto your side that is opposite the ratchet pad.
If the belt has moved, reposition the belt to the widest point of your hips.
Pull the strap to re-tighten the belt. The belt should be snug.
Lift up on the ratchet handle to achieve compression using A.C.T. The belt should be tight but not uncomfortable.
Relax for 15 minutes.
Tip: Keeping the belt on for the full 15 minutes will provide extended relief, results may vary.
To remove the belt, lift up on the buckle to loosen. Then unhook the belt.
Reset the ratchet by lifting up on the ratchet release and pushing the ratchet strip back into the pad. Place your ZIIVAA® belt into the travel bag until your next use.
