These sleeves are in addition to or in replacement of to a sleeve previously purchased. Extra sleeves are vital for a busy facility to follow basic hygiene, allowing the sleeve to be switched between users without needing to wait while the sleeve is cleaned. This helps to keep patients engaged with less waiting and allows practices to continually turn over their waiting room. Extra sleeves are also used as replacement parts if-and-when the original sleeve becomes worn or damaged. It is not uncommon for the sleeves to eventually wear out or to have multiple patients waiting to use the same sleeve. Extra sleeves resolve these issues.
The sleeve, when properly paired with the wrap, provides optimal coverage and better surface contact for effective outcomes from cold, hot and compression therapies. To clean, turn the sleeve inside out and hand or machine wash it in cold water and mild detergent. Do not place it in a dryer but rather air or hang dry it.
