YOU STREAMZ WRISTBANDS | Tips & Tricks to help with your new magnetic wristband
Please remember that the wristband is developed as complementary option and should not replace prescribed medications. In many cases, users will be wearing the wristband to effect a long term or degenerative issue and requires an element of patience, with some users reporting several weeks before realising the impact.

We recommend that you measure your wrist prior to purchasing the band as many of us have no idea what size our wrists actually are, unlike our feet. If you didn't, don't worry as we can always help if it is the wrong size.
Here are a few tips to help with measuring the wristband.
** The wristbands are developed to be loose around wrist. If you are looking for a 'snug' fit we recommend selecting a size which is slightly smaller than your wrist measurement **
The wristband needs to be stretched over the widest part of the hand when first being fitted. Some people with smaller wrists have hands which are wider than their wrist size.
Simply wrap a tape measure around your wrist and measure the length between the two meeting ends.
If you do not have a tape measure, simply use a section of material and then place against a ruler.
Make sure you measure your wrist (as shown below) and not your forearm or arm.
The wristband is to be worn on either wrist.
Some users with more long-term issues have reported significant benefit when wearing a wristband on both wrists, however, in the majority of cases one wrist band will provide the rebalancing effect. If you are looking for the maximum benefit of our technology then you may be interested in looking at our original advanced magnetic ankle band to work alongside our wristband.
The silicone wristband is designed to fit around the wrist once stretched over the hand.
To achieve optimum effectiveness the band must be in contact with the skin at two points when held vertically, and can be worn anywhere on your wrist/arm as long as it is comfortable. The wristband will be effective around the wrist or any part of the forearm.
A series of ‘flex-holes’ are positioned throughout the wristband to help create additional flexibility. (pre November 2023 only).
The wristband will appear tight until it has past the knuckle line. It can be a challenge for some people when it is brand new! If you genuinely feel you have ordered the wrong size, get in touch and we can help.
TIP: If you have small wrists and are struggling to stretch the wristband over your knuckle line, try to cover the wristband in hand soap or washing-up-liquid to act as a lubricant. Some users may need assistance.
YOU Streamz wristbands should be worn 24x7 for optimum effects and have been designed to be left on through all activities, including sleep.
Developed as a ‘booster’ for our original ankle band, users who struggled with the ankle design in summer months or under work boots can wear the wristbands when it is not possible to wear the ankle band.
TIP: Users must refrain from wearing the wristband ‘inside-out’ as this will prevent the technology from working effectively. As we grow we will be releasing new colours and are happy to look at wristbands designs with ‘less branding’. We ask, for the time being, that you help us ‘spread the word’ and wear the band with logos on the outside, it’ll then do it’s job!
Ongoing Care Instructions
The YOU StreamZ wristband requires little ongoing care and maintenance.
The wristband is fully waterproof and can be washed with soapy water, particularly after use in salt water.
Sensitive Skin Issues
Our wristbands are manufactured using non-toxic ‘food-grade’ silicone which is used in a plethora medical devices, however, on rare occasions users may be sensitive to the material being in direct contact with their wrist.
Early signs that the wearer may be feeling sensitive to the silicone is an itchy sensation and showing a pink/red mark on the skin. Users are advised to inspect this regularly as it may pass, but if problems do continue then users are advised to remove the wristband.
