Earthing Body Band Medium Wide
Intro To Earthing
Get connected, feel the difference!
Earthing Body Bands can be used anywhere you stretch, work out, sit, relax, or sleep and are a great, inexpensive, introduction to experience the benefits of Earthing.
The medium body band is excellent for targetting pain and inflammation in particular areas such as knees, thighs, upper arms and shoulder or can be used to ground the whole body at any time. The bands can be used in conjunction with any other Earthing Products.
The bands are adjustable with velcro (26-56cm) and contain conductive silver fibers on the inside that ground the body when they are connected to an Earthed outlet.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE USA VIDEO AND YOU WILL NEED OUR INCLUDED AUSTRALIAN ADAPTER PLUG TO GO INTO THE POWER POINT FIRST.
Step 1: Check Your Outlets Are Earthed with our Socket Tester:
In order to use your Earthing products through an electrical outlet, you must connect it to the “earth port” of an earthed 3 prong outlet. Before plugging in your Earthing product, check that the outlet is earthed by plugging in the Socket Tester. Three orange lights illuminated is GOOD and means that you have a proper earth and you are ready to connect your Earthing product. Any other light combination means your outlet is NOT properly earthed. Try testing another outlet. If it still doesn’t work, then you will need to use a grounding rod in the optional step 2 below.
Please Note: In Australia it is compulsory by law to have all electrical power outlets Earthed, however, if in doubt for any reason it is easy to check with our socket tester which are inclusive in all our Starter Packs, otherwise you can purchase individually – please click here to order.
Step 2: (Optional) Using The Ground Rod When Outlets Aren't Earthed:
a. First Push the Ground Rod directly into the earth around 20cm to 25cm, close to the foundation of the building and where vegetation is growing or the area is damp.
b. Run the cord from the Ground Rod, under or around a window or door, near where you will be using your product.
c. Make sure to cover the cord to prevent tripping.
d. Plug the prong end of your cord into the receptacle end of the Ground Rod cord. If you live in a dry area, such as a desert, soak the earth around the Ground Rod from time to time for maximum conductivity.
Step 3: Using Your Body Bands:
a. The body bands can be put around your foot or ankle, hand or wrist, shoulder or thigh, touching bare skin.
b. Snap the cord onto the Body Band connection tab.
c. Insert the end of your Earthing Cord into one of the holes in your Australian Adaper Plug, then plug into a grounded wall outlet.
d. You must make direct skin contact with Body Bands.
Step 4: How To Test For Conductivity With The Product Continuity Tester:
The purpose of the tester is to verify that your Earthing Mat is conductive
a. Firstly verify that the Product Tester itself is operational by pressing button that says “press” and release—the small light on front will flash green one time then goes off. Indicates tester is good. If no green light battery (Lithium CR2032) may be flat or unit faulty.
b. Snap Coil Cord included onto Product Tester’s metal press stud, if not already assembled.
c. Insert your grey Earthing Adapter Plug into the power outlet you intend to use with your product.
d. Insert prong end of Product Tester Cord into one receptacle of the adapter plug or if using a Ground Rod, attach a splitter to end of ground rod cord and insert into one of the receptacles.
e. Plug Earthing cord from the Band into the other receptacle. You should now have both the Earthing Band and Tester connected to the plug that is in a power outlet.
f. Place product tester flat on the Band. The round metal plate must be in contact with surface of the Band. Press firmly on the mat to obtain a good contact and press down on the "Press" button. A green light means that mat is in working order. In unlikely case that no green light comes on, the mat may be defective or has lost conductivity and should be replaced – you should also check your connecting cords to make sure they are conductive as well (see below).
Note: Sometimes, people have difficulty testing their bands. If the light doesn’t come on, place one hand or fingers on the band while holding the tester in the other hand and with one finger on the silver button on back of tester. A green light would show that the body is grounded when touching the Band. Make sure that both the tester and the product are plugged in to the earth, as described above. You can also put some moisture on your finger tips to create a better contact.
g. Disconnect product tester from the adapter plug or ground rod. However, it is fine to leave plugged in to test when needed later on
h. You don’t have to test your products often. Perhaps after cleaning. The more you use the tester, the sooner the batteries in the tester will expire, replace battery (Lithium CR2032) by unscrewing the back panel.
Test Your Product Cords For Conductivity:
- Replace the coil cord already on the product tester with the cord to be tested.
- Touch the metal pin of the testing cord to the back of the metal disk on the tester
- Hold down and press the “Press” button for at least 3 seconds.
- A green light indicates that the cord is in good working order.
Step 5: How To Wash and Care For Your Earthing Bands
Preferred cleaning method is to hand wash with soap and then immediately put them in the dryer on low heat or air dry indoors. Washing machines are too aggressive and the band will be immersed in water for a long time. The snaps are Nickel plated brass and the wire is Stainless Steel both of which are corrosion resistant. However, even Stainless Steel will start to corrode with long term water immersion. The conductive material is carbon so it will not oxidize but the rubber elasticity will be affected by bleach or oxidizing agents and high temperature is not good. Do not dry in the sun; the UV and hot sun will impact the elasticity.

Great New DesignBy: John on 3 May 2018We've been using earthing bands for years and really love the improved design of this product. It's great that the earthing contact is not restricted to the metal connection but permeates the entire band. We're also very pleased that it attaches to all the cords from earlier purchases. So easy to fit, too, with the velcro attachment. Very impressed!
