One Super Important Fact:
If you want to get rid of the pain and fully heal your knee injury, time and a support brace are simply not enough. Cold compression must be used for the pain and swelling, stimulated blood flow is needed to heal damaged tissue. Preventing re-injury is also an important part of this process.
Knee injuries and strain are among the most persistant conditions many people are faced with. Whether it's due to a sudden trauma or the result of repetitive strain, once damaged and without the proper treatment and rest, the knee can take a very long time to heal. It is impractical to expect the patient not to use the knee for weeks or months while the body heals itself. A more proactive solution is required. For years, people have been using King Brand® ColdCure® and BFST® Knee Wraps along with our Support Tape to heal and protect their knee injuries.
The Design and Quality of Our ColdCure® and BFST® Products Are The Best
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
Our unique U-shaped treatment area allows you to treat both sides of your knee while at the same time targeting either above or below your kneecap. The options for treatment are complete and unlimited for your injury.
King Brand® ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Medical Devices and have passed all Health Canada standards. Made from high quality neoprene, and our own RigiGel® and technology.
Getting Started -- An Overview
Our easy to use ColdCure® and BFST® Knee Wraps are the answer. To start the process, begin with the ColdCure® Knee Wrap to relieve any pain and swelling in your knee. This will take an average of 2 to 10 days depending on the severity of your injury and the amount of swelling.
Once your pain and swelling have subsided, start using the BFST® Knee Wrap. BFST® treatments will work to heal your knee by promoting blood flow to the area of your injury. Treatments are simple and easy: plug in the device, turn it on, and rest. Each treatment is 20 minutes and the effects last for up to 4 hours, so even when your treatment is over, your injury is still receiving the benefits afterwards. Lightweight and compact, you can use it at home or take it with you for use anywhere, anytime.
To avoid re-injury between ColdCure® and BFST® treatments, apply KB Support Tape to your knee. It provides extra support, protection and compression whenever you need it, to keep you moving and active throughout your daily activities.
At any point during the recovery process our Treatment Advisors are only a phone call or email away to provide guidance and answer any questions you might have.
ColdCure® Wraps -- Here's How They Work
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with a knee injury, nothing works better than cold and compression.
ColdCure® technology was developed specifically to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin and underlying tissue. Our gel packs pose no threat of cold burns. This makes them much safer to use than other products that use ice, which can cause the skin to freeze, leading to permanent damage. ColdCure® gel packs are completely safe to use for extended treatment durations, meaning faster relief of pain and swelling. Our ColdCure® technology is a huge improvement on regular ice packs.
Each ColdCure® Wrap comes with three swappable gel packs that contain our unique gel formula -- an excellent value! Unlike other gels that are mushy and watery, our gel is firm but also flexible. ColdCure® gel packs contain 10x more gel than other packs, for maximum coverage of your injured knee. And, the gel inside the wrap doesn't move around. It stays in place to effectively treat your knee injury.
The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time, so you can have the other packs charging in the fridge or freezer to keep your cold therapy going. Do treatments in 20 minute intervals, or as long as you need relief.
Comfortable to wear, the ColdCure® knee gel pack is enclosed in a soft, comfortable, quality neoprene wrap. It conforms to your entire knee to ensure your injury receives an even distribution of cooling power. All of our gel packs are custom designed for the shape of the body part they're intended to treat. Each body part is uniquely shaped, which is why all of our gel packs are uniquely shaped too. This means you're getting the best coverage and treatment possible.
Other gel packs are notoriously famous for having hot and cold spots. 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. At King Brand®, our XC RigiGel® formula helps to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. The cold energy in our gel packs is transferred from the cold spots to the warm spots much more effectively. Yet another feature, this valuable improvement makes treatment more effective as your hot, swollen injury will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack. The temperature-balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.
When using Painkillers it is important to always use Caution!
Painkillers are designed to mask pain, making you forget how badly you've been injured. This can cause a false sense of ability, convincing you that you feel well enough to stop resting and start being active again before your knee is ready for it. This will only undo all of your healing and make your condition worse, often setting your recovery back. If you need to use painkillers, limit them to times when you are off your feet and at rest, such as when you are sleeping. Using painkillers when you're active will only cause more damage to your knee and a longer recovery time.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
Continue Your Healing With the BFST®
Blood flow works to improve cell growth and aids in proper functioning of the organs. Our blood contains oxygen and nutrients that are needed to help our body heal itself. When we're injured, blood flow to the area is usually significantly restricted. That's why promoting blood flow to the area of injury is so important. This is what opens up the blood vessels so the soft tissue can receive the oxygen and nutrients it needs to heal. Also carrying away the waste by-products that are left over from the time of injury.
Like the ColdCure® Wrap, the BFST® Wrap is made of the same high quality neoprene and is comfortable to wear. It is important to remember that the BFST® Is NOT a Heating Pad. Heating pads bring blood to the surface of your skin and make it hot to the touch. BFST® Wraps stimulate blood flow deep beneath your skin to repair your damaged tissue. Bringing blood to the surface of your skin does nothing to heal the injury deep below. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your soft tissue injury through the promotion of blood flow. Heating pads can't do this.
The BFST® is a diathermic device that stimulates blood flow deep within the soft tissue, providing nutrient-rich, optimized blood flow to the affected area of your knee. Diathermy is well-recognized and accepted by the medical community as an effective means of promoting sub-dermal blood flow in order to speed up healing and recovery times. Remember, our wraps are FDA Registered Medical Devices and Health Canada approved.
Blood flow should not be stimulated until the inflammation and pain are gone from your knee. To reduce pain and swelling you want to restrict the blood vessels, not open them up. That is when cold is effective. Once pain and swelling are gone, it now becomes important to increase the circulation, or blood flow to your knee to promote the healing. The more you can do this, the faster the healing.
At rest your injury is not promoting blood flow. But activity can re-injure and cause pain and swelling. Our BFST® device promotes circulation and blood flow, while you are at rest. Thus providing you with a safe and effective way to heal in comfort.
BFST® Wraps come with a 3 level power controller. Everyone should start their treatments on Level 1 and work their way through the levels gradually as their symptoms decrease.
When you first start your treatments on Level 1, your knee may feel quite warm. This is because, at first, your circulation is poor. The more treatments you do, the less warmth you will feel. This is good. As the warmth lessens from treatment to treatment, this is an indication that your circulation is improving. Better circulation means blood flow all the time, not just during treatments. This is the goal. When you feel very little warmth during a treatment, it is time to move up to the next power level. Don't rush it though, more heat doesn't mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels. You are in control of your healing!
We recommend 3-4 blood flow treatments per day. Each treatment is 20 minutes and the effects of each treatment last for up to 4 hours, so it's best to spread your treatments out over the day. This way you'll be receiving optimal blood flow all day long. Even once you feel healed, you should keep doing regular blood flow treatments in order to maintain your healing.
Once you begin to resume your activities, stimulate your blood flow prior to physical activity to help prevent re-injury. This acts as a warm up for your circulatory system.

KB Support Tape -- Armor For Your Injury
Not all support tape is created equal. At King Brand®, our tape is
medical tape, not athletic tape. This means our Tape is manufactured to ISO 10993 standards, which ensures that our Tape is made from extremely safe, biocompatible materials. Our Tape is actually made from safer materials than most baby products, including toys, clothing and even diapers. Don't let the big brand tapes fool you. Most of them are made from toxic materials, because there are no standards for athletic tape like there are for medical tape. Some big brand tape glues even contain carcinogenic ingredients. At King Brand®, your health and safety are of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape is manufactured to such high standards.
Why Use Support Tape?
KB Support Tape helps to prevent re-injury by providing damaged tissue with targeted support and protection. Why is this important? Because fragile, healing tissue is at risk of further damage as you go about your daily activities.
When you apply KB Support Tape, it works with your skin to keep the underlying tissue in place, preventing re-injury. Comfortable to wear, and still relatively stretchy, your skin will be more rigid and less elastic than without KB Support Tape. By limiting the movement of your skin, this also reduces the movement of the soft tissue underneath, further preventing re-injury and giving it support. Avoiding re-injury and giving support both contribute to a much faster healing time.

While we found the application above to be effective for Knee Injuries, it's only an example. Experiment with different Knee Injury taping applications to find the one that works best for you. You will want to look for one that targets the exact area of your injury. You should also use the pain as a guide. If you feel pain in a specific area or areas of your knee, apply the tape there.
KB Support Tape is made of thin, stretchy, breathable material. It's so lightweight and comfortable you'll hardly even notice when it's on.
It is designed to be applied any time you want extra support and protection for your injury.
There's no need to remove the KB Support Tape when you're doing ColdCure® treatments, as the cold will easily penetrate through the Tape. You can wear KB Support Tape during BFST® treatments (noting that with the BFST® there is a very slight loss of effectiveness during treatment due to the nature of the Tape acting as a barrier).
Our King Brand® Support Tape will target any injury effectively. The Tape comes in two different widths, Pre-Cut Strips or a Continuous Roll, and choice of color.

The Ultimate Healing Solution:
If you really want to get better, here's exactly what you need to do.
- Wear a ColdCure® Wrap as much as possible to relieve your pain and swelling and protect your knee from further damage.
- Do a BFST® treatment first thing every morning. Do 2 or 3 more BFST® treatments throughout the day. This will help you heal quickly.
- Avoid re-straining the injury as much as possible. Using KB Support Tape will help with this. Giving your knee a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Finally, you can heal your knee injury.
Amazing Value -- KB Basics Hot & Cold Wraps
What's the Difference?
While our BFST® devices actively stimulate blood flow to promote healing, the KB Basics Heating Pads are simply designed to provide heat.

RigiGel® doesn't have the hyper-conductive properties of XC RigiGel® that work to eliminate hot spots.

- No Adjustment Needed
