ProBand® Sports Industries - FAQ


- Is Proband made with Latex? Latex is not used in the manufacturing of any Pro Band product.

Can I wear my Pro Band on either the right or left arm/leg? Pro Bands mold to the contours of your body as you wear it, giving you a custom fit. If you plan to wear our products on both sides of your body, we suggest that you get one Pro Band for each side. Don’t forget to mark one of them “right or left” so you always re-apply to the same appendage.

Should I get a Pro Band with Magna-Therapy® When placed near the affected area, magnets may stimulate blood flow with the resultant increase of oxygen-caring capacity of the blood, both of which are basic and essential to helping the body heal itself. Please see the discussion under the BandIT XM or KneedIT XM product description for complete information on Pro Band with Magnet-Therapy®.
