You don't have to suffer. You don't have to wait.
All YOU simply need is the right treatment.
The standard Doctor's direction for most ankle injuries is to rest the injury and let it heal over time. Doctors usually recommend patients try to stay off their ankle for a period of time and to take something for the pain. In most cases the injury will heal itself within 1 to 3 months without treatment.
With a more severe or persistent injury, or due to time constraints such as in the case of professional athletes, time is critical and a more proactive treatment plan is required. For the most important patients, a regular routine of BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) is undertaken to significantly accelerate healing. Where rapid recovery and complete healing is required, BFST® is also required.
While instructions to use pain killers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen (analgesics) are what patients want to hear, medical professionals recognize that masking the pain does nothing to heal the injury and that in fact re-injury is more likely to occur when the pain of an injury is masked with drugs. Most common analgesics are known to interfere with the clotting of blood and can actually interfere with the healing process and result in additional inflammation. For best results, ColdCure® treatment serves to actually reduce inflammation and control ankle pain without adverse side effects. ColdCure® technology can contribute significantly to reduced pain and more rapid recovery for high priority patients.
King Brand Healthcare Products manufactures a line of BFST® wraps and ColdCure® medical devices that are specifically designed for patients that require better than normal care for their ankle injuries.
The BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our patented 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 injured area accelerating the healing process.
As an FDA Registered Medical Device the BFST® wrap is suitable for use in hospital and therapeutic clinics. Because the device is completely safe for patients to use themselves, the BFST® wraps 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® ankle device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the entire back and lower sides of the ankle. It extends far up the back and sides as well to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire ankle area. The wrap 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 tender injured foot without having to slip into or out of a 'boot 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 injured foot. The device disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so that the user is free to move about the treatment clinic or home when not receiving treatment while still wearing the wrap for support and comfort.

Cold compression wraps are standard medical products for the treatment of pain and inflammation. Cold and compression applied to an injured joint immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. This swelling can be in the muscles, ligaments, tendons, or tendon sheaths within the ankle. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage as a result of a soft tissue injury.
The King Brand ColdCure® Ankle Wrap is a medical grade cold compression wrap designed for use in hospitals and injury therapy clinics (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 soft tissue 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 patient 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 injured area. 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® Wraps, ColdCure® Ankle wraps are enclosed in soft, comfortable neoprene wraps. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the ankle. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps - let's face it, the ankle and the bottom of the foot and the knee are all shaped very differently and each one 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 back of the ankle to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power over the entire ankle area. This has in every way been designed to be 100% an ankle product.
The wraps use RigiGel® technology so that the gel does not flow away from the injured area 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. 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 wrapping it around a tender, injured, ankle without having to slip into or out of a 'boot or sock like' device.
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 will heal quickly and completely with minimal swelling and pain. This ends up 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.
