As with any arm immobilizer do not wrap too tightly. Immobilizers should be loose enough to fit your finger under the bands. If child’s hands feel cold or have a blue appearance, immediately remove immobilizer, exercise arms, wait and reapply looser. Children using arm immobilizers should be closely monitored at all times to ensure child does not remove and is not experiencing any problem as a result of wearing immobilizers. Remove often and exercise arms.
