Safe Use Guidelines
While MightyTykes™Infant & Child Weights are CPSIA compliant and designed to be safe, you’ll want to follow a few common-sense practices in using them:
- Be sure to consult your therapist or physician before starting any exercise regimen.
- Start by using the lightest weight available. Check that your child can lift their weighted arm or leg with little effort.
- Begin with only a few repetitions of suggested or similar movements, and stop using the weights when your child shows signs of tiring, irritability or discomfort. Repeat precautions when introducing a higher weight.
- Weights are only intended to be used for short, supervised sessions.
- Keep in mind that it can take weeks or months of use for your child to move to a higher weight.
- Only increase weight once your child can lift their arm or leg easily at the lower weight.
- Do not use excessive weight for your child.
- Secure weights snuggly above the joint. Avoid the narrow part of the wrist or ankle, to prevent pulling at the joint ligaments. If needed, apply over clothing for comfort and security.
- If your child attempts to remove the weights, gently redirect him or her. You can apply weights under clothing, minimizing the chance for your child to remove the weights.
- Consult your physical therapist or other healthcare provider for more details.
