There is no better treatment for pain and swelling than a ColdCure® Wrap. There are a lot of wraps out there, but none come even close to ours. Our Wraps use both cold and compression to give you the fastest and most effective relief of pain and swelling possible. Our ice packs contain our own unique gel formula called RigiGel®. These amazing ice packs have many benefits ordinary ice packs just don't have.
RigiGel® is soft to the touch but doesn't move around under pressure. This means it stays in place to treat your injury, so you get an even and consistent cold treatment over the entire injured area, every time. No matter how hard you press on the gel, it stays in place. It will give a bit for comfort, but it won't move away from your painful injury.
Keeping the cold on your injury throughout treatment is very important if you want to relieve the pain and swelling as quickly as possible. Unlike traditional ice packs, RigiGel® doesn't flow away to other parts of the pack, even when put under heavy pressure for long periods of time. When inside the wrap, our ice packs conform perfectly to your body. In terms of flex and form, RigiGel® packs feel exactly the same at room temperature as they do straight out of the fridge or freezer. They're firm yet flexible at any temperature for the most comfortable treatments possible.
The Walgreens factory tested our gel and found that pound for pound, our gel held over 3x more cold than the best gel they had to offer. The results were staggering.
Not only do our ice packs hold more cold, they also cover a larger area and contain more gel than standard ice packs. This makes a huge difference in the treatment you receive. Most traditional ice packs only contain a little bit of gel, because an ice pack with tons of gel is a lot more expensive to make. But if you really want to feel better and reduce your pain and swelling, an ice pack with tons of gel is exactly what you need. Our RigiGel® packs are the solution. A bigger pack with more gel inside means faster and more effective relief of your pain and swelling.
ColdCure® Wraps come included with 3 ice packs. This means you can have 1 ice pack inside the wrap for your treatment and 2 charging in the fridge or freezer, so you can swap them in and out quickly to keep your therapy going. ColdCure® ice packs are large enough to cover your injury, but are never bulky. Our Leg Wrap comes with 3 ice packs that weigh about 4lbs (2 kgs) and that's just the ice packs alone. Compare that to most other ice packs or cold wraps on the market that weigh less than 1 lb, including the wrap. In many cases, King Brand® ice packs contain 10x more gel than other products on the market. That means a huge difference in the treatment you receive. And this brings you value.
ColdCure® Wraps provide firm, even compression for superior treatment of pain and swelling. The wrap applies targeted compression to the injured area with no gaps in pressure. To be as effective as possible, the compression needs to be uniform and complete, and ColdCure® Wraps provide exactly that.
ColdCure® Wraps are made of soft and stretchy neoprene, making them easy to apply and adjust. Both the wrap and the ice packs are specially designed for the area of injury. The wrap can be worn without the ice pack inside as a support for your injury while you're not receiving treatments. The wrap is incredibly comfortable to wear.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury. The truth is that temperatures below freezing can be too cold to effectively relieve pain and swelling. And these temperatures can also be dangerous. Ice (and other freezer based substitutes such as the blue ice pack) can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue. The proper solution is RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression & Elevation. We don't want to apply ice, we want to apply cold that is just above freezing. You want cold - and lots of it - but not so cold that it is below the freezing point of water.
Ice pack injuries are so common, there are actually law firms that specialize in representing people who suffer from them. Our ice packs hold enough cold out of the fridge to provide extended and effective cold treatments. When stored in the fridge, our gel packs are completely safe to use one after the other for as long as you like, without taking any breaks.
While we recommend that you start by using them at refrigerator temperatures, you can store the RigiGel® packs in the freezer and use them as freezer packs. For optimum usage, keep one of the packs in the freezer and the other 2 in the fridge and you will get hours of non-stop cold therapy to take away your pain.
Some of our ColdCure® Wraps now come included with XC RigiGel® packs. XC RigiGel® is a new gel formula that is a further improvement on RigiGel®. Ice packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® packs help to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to the injury, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. The cold energy in our ice packs is transferred from the cold spots to the warm spots much more effectively. This is a valuable improvement as your hot, swollen injury will receive the cooling power of the entire ice pack. The temperature balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.
XC® gel ice packs have 2 different coloured sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides will give you all the same benefits that XC® gel has to offer. The ice pack can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your injury or away from your injury since the ice pack is not side specific.
What makes RigiGel® ice packs better than ordinary ice packs?
How much better can our ice packs and cold wraps be? You will be amazed. They fit better, last longer, stay colder, work faster, target pain better and are made of ultra safe materials. You can be sure that a ColdCure® compression wrap with RigiGel® ice packs is far superior to any other product in the market in many, many ways. Start feeling better today.
