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 result when the inflammation common to bursitis worsens. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage as a result of a bursitis.
The King Brand® ColdCure® Knee 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 and the necessity for treatment in the home.
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 inflammation and less handling of the injured bursa. These all result in a better, more thorough treatment of Bursitis. 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® Knee wraps are enclosed in soft, comfortable neoprene wraps. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the knee. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps. Because there are bursae all over your body it would make sense that you would need a wrap specific to the afflicted part of your body. Fortunately, Kingbrand realizes this and all are wraps are made to perfectly fit one part of the body for maximum pain relief and faster healing of your Bursitis. 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 entire knee to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power over the entire injured area. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a knee treatment device.
The wraps use RigiGel® technology so that the gel does not flow away from the injured area even when under pressure. Despite this, the gel 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 comes even close. 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 a inflamed, swollen bursa without having to slip into or out of an uncomfortable tube shaped device.
