The LifeWave™ patches should be worn for a minimum of 12 hours per day. However, there are no maximum wear times, and many people choose to wear the patches for 24 hours or more. The patches can be worn during activities such as sleep, work, and exercise, and they will continue to be effective. There are also no restrictions on how long you can use the patches; you can wear them for days, weeks, or even months at a time. The only exception is if you are pregnant or breastfeeding; in these cases, you should consult with a healthcare professional before using the patches. If you have any other questions about how to use the LifeWave™ patches, please feel free to contact us.
