An Ionic Snap Band is a bracelet consisting of layered, flexible bistable spring bands sealed within a silicone Ionic cover. The bracelet can be straightened out, creating tension within the springy metal bands. The straightened bracelet is then slapped against the wearer's forearm, causing the bands to spring back into a curve that wraps around the wrist, securing the bracelet to the wearer.
Originally invented by Wisconsin teacher Stuart Anders and sold under the brand name "Slap Wrap" the slap bracelet (or snap bracelet) was a popular fad among children, pre-teens and teenagers in the late 1980s and early 1990s and was available in a wide variety of patterns and colors. More recently, slap bracelets have been worn on the lower legs of cyclists to prevent trousers from being tangled in the gear system.
Negative Ion Output
Please note that as the band needs to be very flexible to "snap" the Negative Ion output is approximately -500 ions. This is still much more than most ionic wristbands, but obviously less than our Ionic Balance Bands.
