Many people suffer from a painful condition known as Bursitis. Bursitis affects small, liquid filled sacs known as Bursae which provide a gliding surface that prevents friction when tissue moves. There are approximately 160 Bursae in the human body and the majority of major Bursae are located near major joints such as the elbows, shoulders, knees and hips. Bursitis can be caused due to a variety of reasons such as injury, infection, or by rheumatism. Any one of these can lead to a Bursa becoming inflamed creating the condition we know as Bursitis. This condition can then lead to pain and, if the inflammation is left to worsen, can lead to stiffness and restricted movement in the affected area. Fortunately for you, Kingbrand Healthcare's ® BFST® and ® ColdCure® therapy devices can provide fast relief from pain caused by Bursitis while working to heal the underlying problem.
King Brand Healthcare Products® are the innovators of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®). For Bursitis, blood flow is the most critical element that contributes to rapid recovery. Blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the area which are required for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, bursitis can cause restricted blood flow which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. Physical activity will promote blood flow but all too often it also results in great pain and possible re-injury. With a King Brand® BFST® therapy device, blood flow can be stimulated in the Bursae 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 Bursitis at a greatly accelerated rate.
Pain and Inflammation. Without these two very common symptoms, patients wouldn't even know that there was anything wrong with them. Pain and inflammation are the symptoms that drive patients to seek medical help. As professional healthcare providers, we care about curing the ailment and recognize that the pain isn't the problem, its only one sign of the true problem. All too often our patients rate our professional service based on our ability to address the pain or swelling because that's the only part that they can see. We want our patients to think highly of us, but we also want them to live without pain through a proper, refined 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 anticoagulents - they can prevent the blood from clotting. This group of medicines interfere with normal blood function that is crucial for reducing the effects of Bursitis. We know this isn't the best solution for treating the pain, but 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 control is clearly using ColdCure® technology.
ColdCure® compression knee wraps are designed specifically for the treatment of pain and inflammation due to Bursitis. They are easy to use, safe, targeted and extremely effective. ColdCure® technology provides control of the inflammation and pain without the negatives of drugs. The patient gets the relief they demand and their bursitis heals as quickly as possible.
The BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer which will then directly affect the inflamed bursa. This is accomplished by utilizing our patented Energy Web®, specially controlled EMR energy envelops the affected the Bursae and stimulates blood flow deep beneath the skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the Bursa which helps lower the level of inflammation which accelerates 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® knee device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the energy web® to mold around the complex forms of various joints to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire inflamed Bursa. 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 joint without having to slip into or out of a 'sock like' device preventing pain that contact may create.
After treatment the wrap does not need to be removed and the straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for the injured bursa in order to prevent accidental re-injury. 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 because the device is incredibly comfortable to wear.
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.
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.
