Whether you suffer from a soft tissue injury or chronic condition, there is no better treatment for pain and swelling than a Knee ColdCure® wrap. There are a lot of wraps out there, but none come even close to ours. King Brand® ColdCure® Knee wraps use both cold and compression to give you the fastest and most effective relief of pain and swelling possible. Our Knee gel packs contain our own unique gel formula called XC RigiGel®. These amazing gel packs have many benefits regular ice packs just don't have.
Only King Brand® ColdCure® gel packs contain XC RigiGel®. This specially formulated gel 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 injured knee throughout treatment is very important if you want to relieve the pain as quickly as possible. Unlike traditional ice packs, XC RigiGel® does not flow away to other parts of the pack, even when put under heavy pressure for long periods of time. Keeping the pressure and cold on the injured area of your knee is critical for effective relief of pain and swelling. In terms of flex and form, XC RigiGel® packs feel exactly the same at room temperature as they do straight out of the fridge or freezer. They're soft and flexible at any temperature for the most comfortable treatments possible.
While the gel itself doesn't move around inside the pack, the cold energy does. Traditional ice packs have hot and cold spots, but our XC RigiGel® formula distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to a knee injury, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. Our temperature balancing gel works to move the cold where it's needed within the gel pack, eliminating the potential for hot spots. This means your painful injury will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack every time. The hyper-conductive power of these gel packs is unmatched.
The Walgreens factory tested our gel and found that pound for pound, our gel held over 3x as much cold as the best gel they had to offer. A huge difference.
Not only do XC RigiGel® 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 a 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, you need a pack with tons of gel. XC RigiGel® packs are the solution. Bigger packs and with more gel inside means you receive fast and effective relief of your pain and swelling.
The ColdCure® Knee wrap comes with 3 huge gel packs. This means you can have 1 gel pack inside the wrap for your treatment and 2 more charging in the fridge or freezer, so you can swap them in and out quickly to keep your therapy going. The gel packs alone weigh about 4lbs (2 kgs). 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® wraps contain 10x the amount of gel of other knee wraps. This means maximum relief of pain and swelling and an overall superior treatment.
The ColdCure® Knee wrap provides firm, even compression for superior treatment of pain and swelling. The wrap applies uniform 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® Knee wraps provide exactly that.
The Knee wrap is soft and stretchy, making it easy to apply and adjust. Both the wrap and the gel packs are specially designed for the shape of the knee. The wrap can be worn without the gel inside as a support for your injury while you're not receiving treatments. The wrap is incredibly comfortable to wear.
If you're looking for even more cold compression, attach an Accessory Strap to your ColdCure® Knee wrap. The Accessory Strap provides additional compression,
which means maximum pain and swelling relief.
The ColdCure® Knee Wrap with XC Rigigel® is specially designed for most knee injuries. But maybe you want even more. If you want to ice all the way around your leg and above and below the knee at the same time, consider our ColdCure® Large Pad. With 2 massive 16" x 16" gel packs it can completely surround most of the average person's leg. It is also very versatile and can be used on the back or anywhere else on your body where you want TONS and TONS of cold.
Our huge ColdCure® wrap comes with adjustable velcro straps that can be adjusted and moved to accomodate any part of the body. It is an ideal wrap to have on hand for all kinds of treatment. You will be surprised how often you use it!
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. Yes, 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. XC RigiGel® packs hold enough cold out of the fridge to provide extended and effective cold therapy treatments. When stored in the fridge, our gels are completely safe to use one after the other for as long as you like without taking any breaks.
While we recommend you start by using them at refrigerator temperatures, you can store the XC 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.
