When to Wear the Sleeves: The Knee and/or Elbow Sleeves provide the joints with warmth, support and stability. The sleeves are not intended to be used continuously but used during your exercise period when the knees or arms are actively engaged. The use of the sleeves is encouraged when squats (full knee bends) and Olympic movements are performed.
When Used as Knee Sleeves: Probably the best way to slip the sleeve on is to turn the sleeve half way down so that half of the inside rubber side is exposed. Avoid getting your fingernails in contact with the rubber material by holding the sleeve between the first joint of your thumb and fingers while pulling it on until it is just past the middle point of your knee.
Once you have it that far, flip up the folded knee sleeve so the remaining rubber covers the thighs over the knee joint. If, for some reason, you have a difficult time sliding the sleeves on, sprinkle a little talcum powder on the inside of your sleeve before sliding it on.
When Used as Elbow Sleeves: The principle for the wear and care of the sleeves on the knees also applies for their use as elbow sleeves. If you have difficulty in sliding the band to cover the elbows, try turning it inside out; however one of the true benefits from the elbow sleeve will be lost when it is worn this way.
Care of the sleeves: After each use rinse bands with warm running water and pat dry with a towel. Then allow them to air dry. Every now and then use mild soap to wash bands and rinse thoroughly.
If you are allergic to rubber, do not use the sleeves.
