How long do I have to wear Optune Gio every day?
A large clinical study showed that Optune Gio should be turned on for at least 75% of the time, or 18 hours per day, to get the best response from treatment. That means you can take up to a 6-hour break from Optune Gio every day.

Social outings, like dinner with friends Wearing Optune Gio overnight to use their break during the day Activities, like playing golf or swimming
“When I take breaks from the Optune Gio, I go to my dance group. I dance once a week. It’s a little too aerobic to be carrying these extra pounds on my back, so I make sure that I have an array change day on the day that I have my dance group.”
– Lynn, Optune Gio user and Patient Ambassador
