How do the Theraband latex-free bands compare with the original latex bands?
The recently re-designed Thera-Band® Latex-Free Professional Resistance Bands were formulated to match the pull forces of our Latex Professional Resistance Bands.
Can Thera-Band bands be purchased powder free?
The powder is used to keep the product from sticking to itself during manufacturing. The powder will be removed with normal use, and is not necessary for proper functioning of the product. Thera-Band® Latex-Free bands, however, do not contain powder.
What is the shelf life of Thera-Band bands and tubing ?
When kept in a cool, dark environment, the bands and tubing should last for many years. However, use, exposure to temperature extremes, chlorine, and sunlight decrease the “shelf-life”.
How do I connect the bands or tubing for exercise?
Always secure the bands or tubing to a sturdy, non-movable object. The Thera-Band Door Anchor should be used to secure one end of the bands or tubing for exercise. It isn’t advisable to tie the exerciser to a door knob or to “close” them in a door; this leads to early breaking. The Thera-Band Exercise Handles and Assist can be used to grasp the exercisers. To connect to the legs or arms, use the Thera-Band Extremity Strap.
How do I clean the Thera-Band elastic bands or tubing?
Immerse the band or tube in fresh clean water in a sink or under a running faucet. Rub a small amount of mild hand soap over the wet band or tube and then rinse in fresh water. Lay flat to dry, or drape the band or tube over the back of a chair or similar object and allow to thoroughly dry. Once dry, rub a small amount of talcum, baby powder, corn starch, or similar powder over the surface of the band or tube to prevent sticking.
