How To Use
Place Roleo on a flat surface, such as a desk or table. For optimal benefits, the device should be at the same level as your computer keyboard usually is, about the height of your elbows with arms hanging straight down from the shoulders while seated at a desk or table.
The Roleo may be used with or without suctions cups. If desired, carefully remove the four black rubber “feet” in the base of the frame and push the top end of the suction cups into the slot and slide until a tight fit is achieved. Suction cups only work properly on a smooth surface like polished wood, metal, plastic or glass.
Use with elbows bent, forearms parallel to the floor, while seated, or use the Roleo on higher countertop while standing, or place on lap in a seated position.
Place one hand on the top-mounted knob/handle. It is best at first to adjust the pressure to the lightest, by turning it counterclockwise until it stops. If using suction cups, you need not hold unit with other hand after setting tension.
CAUTION: DO NOT TRY TO TURN THE KNOB ANY FURTHER THAN IT FREELY GOES, IN EITHER DIRECTION. FORCING PAST THIS POINT MAY BREAK THE UNIT AND VOID THE SATISFACTION GUARANTEE.
Slip fingertips of your other hand between the rollers, and gently push arm forward until the crook (upper side) of elbow is nearly touching the rollers, AND NO FURTHER. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE ABOVE ELBOW.
With your arm between the rollers, use a slow “push and pull” motion to massage the muscles of your forearm. Adjust the pressure to your liking. Start out at the lightest setting and then slowly increase.
Concentrate on the areas where you feel tension. Stop on a particularly tight or painful area and hold your arm still to keep the pressure on that “pressure point” or “trigger point.” Rotate the wrist gently, thereby stretching the muscle under the pressure of the roller.
Turn the palm side of the forearm up toward the upper roller, to aim the ridges of the roller into muscles on the palm side of the arm that feel tight or sore.
Gently move the wrist or hand in and out of the rollers, concentrating the ridges of the upper roller in between the bones of the wrist, hand and fingers. This can help ease arthritis pain, according to our customers. Contact between the roller surface and a bony part of the hand, arm or wrist may feel a little uncomfortable at first, but this discomfort will usually lessen with use.
Adjust to lower pressure to decrease discomfort.
