Product Description & Benefits: The Standard Size Cold Therapy Pack (12" X 16") may be used for cold therapy to help reduce swelling and to provide pain and muscle tension relief. Used by medical practitioners and professional physical therapists due to its efficacy, this soft and flexible cold pack may be applied directly to any part of the body and can be used post-operatively for a wide range of cosmetic and non-cosmetic procedures, including upper and lower body procedures, liposuction, and tummy tuck (see full list below). Beyond using the cold therapy pack post-operative during recovery from a procedure (see full list below), this product can be highly effective for the treatment of sprains, knee, shoulder, elbow, and hand injuries, bruises, head aches, muscle spasms, hernia, and insect bites.
The pack remains soft and flexible and may be applied directly to any part of the body with no need for a special supplemental cover or towel for skin protection. The unique pack design assures that the pack will not bulge, burst, gather, split, or leak. The cold therapy pack provides timed-released cold therapy to prevent tissue damage and rebound effect if the pack remains in place past recommended the treatment time. The cold pack offers the perfect thickness and weight to allow easy application and full freedom of movement during application. Temperature profiles comply with recommended application times. When used as directed, the cold pack is designed to provide cold therapy for 20 to 30 minutes. The cold pack stays dry (it does not leak) and free from moisture that normally collects on cold packs. The cold pack is double-sealed and sewn for durability, latex-free, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly.
The immediate application of cold therapy is beneficial for reducing post-operative swelling by constricting the capillary vessels and slowing down the flow of blood and other fluids to the injured or operated area. Patients also benefit from cold therapy's pain relief/anesthetic effect on the nerves, which helps reduce the sensation of pain and provides a soothing, refreshing, and relaxing feeling to the injured or operated area. Further, cold therapy reduces the risk of hematoma formation. Because cold therapy helps to restore strength, mobility and range of motion more quickly, patients may reduce their hospital stay, heal faster and feel better sooner.
Instructions for Use: For best results, it is recommended to buy 2 packs to be able to have a cold one ready at all times while the other is being used. The cold pack is made of a special polyester/urethane and can be applied directly to the skin, right from the freezer. No special covers or towels are necessary for skin protection. The pack is designed to provide cold therapy for 20 to 30 minutes. The cold pack comes with soft adjustable, washable wraps that assure protection of the treated area. Once applied, the wrap will stay securely in place and allow normal activities to continue during the treatment.
Cold Pack Care: The cold pack can washed. Because the cold pack is made of durable materials and the surface of the pad is non-absorbent, it can be wiped off and disinfected.
