To ensure Active Patch 4U is applied correctly, you should gently stretch the patch both diagonally and width ways several times prior to removing the protective film. This will soften the fabric of the Active Patch 4U, making it fit much better to your skin — especially on areas with a high-level of mobility (elbow, knee, ankle, hand, wrist, back…)
