Many Doctors and Physical Therapists have patients that require aggressive treatment for their torn ligaments. These patients may be professional or amateur athletes whose lives revolve around being physically able to perform. Or they may be any patient who simply insists on a more aggressive treatment plan than taking pain killers and "waiting it out". Patients who want to be proactive about healing their torn ligament need a fast and effective treatment. They need products that will ensure proper healing. They need ColdCure® to reduce pain and inflammation and BFST® to heal quickly. ColdCure® and BFST® are the solution to treating your torn ligament.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices are NOT wraps or braces designed to simply lessen joint strain.
KingBrand Healthcare Products® are the innovators of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®). For rapid healing of ligament tears, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the torn ligament. Oxygen and nurtient rich blood are required for the injury to heal. Unfortunately, an inflammed ligament at rest often has restricted blood flow, which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. Physical activity will promote blood flow but excessive activity is typically the cause of a ligament tear and results in re-injury which further extends the healing time and greatly increases the amount of scar tissue that develops.
BFST FOR RAPID HEALING
With a KingBrand® BFST® therapy device for torn ligaments, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while the patient is at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, patients can recover from their ligament injuries at surprisingly rapid rates.
Professional athletes are the best example of how quickly people can really recover from soft tissue injuries such as torn ligaments. When a professional athlete is injured, they are given explicit instructions to rest their injured ligament - no physical activity, no loading of the joint, crutches - they are ordered to rest the ligament completely. Injured professional athletes are also attended to by professional athletic therapists. These pro therapists have been assigned to the athlete to ensure they supplement the healing process with exercises and stretches and to stimulate blood flow many times each day. Regular BFST® treatments are a standard part of that therapy. The more we promote blood flow, the faster the ligament will heal. That's why professional athletes are back in the game in days while regular patients with the same injuries often take weeks or even months to heal. With daily BFST® treatments pro athletes and others who use it are recovering faster than ever.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
KingBrand has developed the ColdCure® line of compression wraps specifically designed for the treatment of pain and swelling of individual body parts, in particular torn ligaments. These wraps contain several advancements in cryotherapy technology that provide the longest lasting cold therapy possible. The temperature is closely regulated so that the body tissue gets neither too cold to be damaged nor gets warm too quickly to be effective. The rigid gel stays in place and allows for uniform cold compression over the entire liagment injury. ColdCure® wraps are easy to use, safe, targeted and extremely effective.
ColdCure® FOR PAIN RELIEF
ColdCure® technology provides superior control of the swelling and pain associated with ligament tears without the negative effects of drugs. The patient gets the relief they demand and they are still able to heal as quickly as possible.
Without pain and swelling, patients wouldn't even know that their ligament was torn. Pain and Swelling are the symptoms that drive patients to seek medical help. As professional healthcare providers, we care about healing torn ligaments but recognize that the pain isn't the underlying problem, its only a sign of the problem. All too often our patients rate our professional service based on our ability to address the pain and the swelling because that's the only part that they can see. As medical professionals we first want to address the underlying ligament issue, but we also want our clients to live without pain through the healing process. Pain killers are the easy solution, but we all know they are not the best solution.
Pain killers (NSAIDs/analgesics) such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and ASA are known anticoagulants - they can prevent the blood from clotting. This group of drugs interfere with normal blood function that is crucial for the optimal healing process. We know this isn't the best solution for treating the pain. Narcotics and steroids are not desirable options either, especially for our regular patients who are not under professional medical supervision 100% of the day. Even injured professional athletes who are under regular medical supervision are kept away from drugs if possible. The best possible solution for pain and swelling relief related to a torn ligament is clearly ColdCure® technology.
Combination Therapy - BFST® + ColdCure® Treatments
As professional therapists and medical practitioners you know that it is in your best interest to treat your patients quickly and completely. Using regular, alternating BFST® and ColdCure® treatments your patient's ligament injury will heal quickly and completely with minimal swelling and pain. This results in lower treatment costs, greater patient satisfaction and a reduced chance of re-injury.
Even with their superior design and performance these devices are low enough priced that they can be used by patients for in-home self treatment which also improves treatment results and patient satisfaction.
Medical Function - BFST® Kit - Accelerated Healing
The BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) Kit is designed to promote blood flow in injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our proprietary Energy Web®, specially controlled EMR energy envelops the affected body part and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the torn ligament accelerating the healing process.
As an FDA Registered Medical Device the BFST® Kit is suitable for use in hospitals and therapeutic clinics. Because the device is completely safe for patients to use themselves, the BFST® kits can also be used by the patients at home. Home use reduces in-clinic medical costs and further speeds up healing times.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® ligament device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene shell. The shell shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the complex form of the ligament to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire ligament injury. The shell is opened and closed using attached velcro straps that guarantee a perfect fit. As well, the wrap and unwrap design allows for easy wrapping of a sore ligament without having to slip into or out of a 'sock like' device. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed.
After treatment the straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for the torn ligament. The device disconnects at the shell from the power supply and controller so the user is free to move about the treatment clinic or home. This allows the user to wear the shell for support and comfort while not receiving treatment. The device is incredibly comfortable to wear.

Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Pain Relief
Cold compression wraps are standard medical products for the treatment of ligament tear pain and inflammation. Cold and compression applied to an injured ligament immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. This swelling can be in the ligament itself or in the muscles, tendons, or tendon sheaths surrounding the ligament. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage as a result of a ligament injury.
The KingBrand® ColdCure® ligament Wrap is a medical grade cold compression wrap designed for use in hospitals, injury therapy clinics and the home. Home use is becoming a lot more common. The ColdCure® wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in ligament tear injuries.
Improving on the RICE standard of injury care, ColdCure® wraps are specifically designed to operate at refrigeration (not freezer) temperatures. This eliminates the potential of skin damage during treatment associated with all freezer wraps. This improved standard is called RCCE®(Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation). RCCE® allows for the wraps to be applied to the ligament injury and used while not attended by a physician or clinician. This is very important given the likelihood of skin damage from alternative devices which use cold packs charged in a freezer.
The oversized cold packs in all ColdCure® wraps contain specially formulated gel with more cooling power per lb than standard wraps. This allows for longer treatment durations without having to recharge the wrap or switch cold packs. The longer treatment times and more cold power means more pain relief, better control of swelling and less handling of the torn ligament. These all result in a better treatment. Each ColdCure® wrap comes with 3 large cold packs allowing for immediate re-use in clinical settings or the ability for extended treatment durations in the patient's home.
Like the BFST® Shells, ColdCure® ligament wraps are made of soft, comfortable neoprene. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the ligament. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps - the ligament is shaped very differently from any other body part and each body part deserves a custom designed pack if it's going to work the best. No other wrap in the world has specifically designed cold packs for each and every part of the body The wrap molds the cold pack around the ligament to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power over the entire ligament injury. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a ligament treatment device.
The wraps use RigiGel® technology so that the gel does not flow away from the injured ligament when pressure is applied. The gel stays in place even under pressure. Yet it is still soft and molds to the body. ColdCure® wraps are unique and of a higher quality and performance than any other wrap available. Nothing else is even comparable. Again, like the BFST® wrap, the ColdCure® wrap is opened and closed using attached velcro straps that guarantee a perfect fit. The wrap and unwrap design allows for easily applying it around an injured, sore ligament without having to slip into or out of a tube shaped device.
