when I put the tape on the very first day, I felt a difference right away

You don't have to suffer. You don't have to wait.
You simply need the right treatment.
Surgery should always be a last resort. Carpal Release Surgery is not a 'quick fix'. It comes with months of recovery time, and physical therapy. Studies show that around 2 years after Carpal Release Surgery, just under 60% of patients report that the pain they've experienced prior to the surgery has returned, as well as decreased strength in the wrist overall. Don't waste time going through surgery and recovery. BFST® and ColdCure® treatments at home are easier and get better results.
Surgery for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is not necessary in most cases. With the right treatment, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be healed. Our ColdCure® and BFST® Wrist Wraps provide you with an easier, faster and more affordable solution to healing your Carpal Tunnel. Use the ColdCure® Wrist Wrap to reduce the pain and swelling. BFST® Wrist Wrap will stimulate blood flow in your wrist to accelerate the healing of your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. KB Tape protects your wrist and reduces re-injury.
Do this and your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can truly heal - finally.
If you choose surgery there's a lot of healing to do. How quickly you heal post-surgery all depends on how you treat your wrist during the recovery process. The number one most important thing you can do is rest your wrist. If you don't rest your wrist sufficiently following surgery, this will lead to a lot of unnecessary pain and strain. You don't want your Carpal Tunnel symptoms to come back, so you need to commit to resting.
You probably won't be able to use your wrist heavily until 3 months after surgery. If you want a rapid recovery following surgery, you need to use the ColdCure® and BFST® Wrist Wraps. Your wrist can regain 60%, 80%, 99% of it's former strength after surgery - it's all up to you. How you treat your wrist after surgery will largely impact your long term results. The first few days after surgery, your wrist will be painful and swollen. This is the time to do ColdCure® treatments. Once ColdCure® has worked to relieve your swelling and inflammation, you can start BFST® treatments. BFST® will bring oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood to your wrist, which will help your tissues heal faster.
You don't have to wait for endless months in pain. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) gives your Carpal Tunnel the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.
BFST® Wraps bring oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured wrist at rest often has 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 small but frequent re-injury, which extends your healing time and greatly increases the amount of scar tissue that develops. With a King Brand® BFST® Wrist Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your Carpal Tunnel while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome at a surprisingly rapid rate.
To minimize pain and swelling, complete a ColdCure® treatment any time your pain level increases, or if you have been active. The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap provides superior relief of the swelling and pain that comes with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. ColdCure® Wrist Wraps use cold and compression together, because cold and compression are the two things you need to eliminate pain and swelling as quickly and effectively as possible. The application of cold compression must be uniform and complete if it's going to work the best, and this is why the ColdCure® Wrist Wrap has been custom designed to perfectly fit your wrist, to ensure that your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome receives an even distribution of cooling power.
When you're not doing treatments with your BFST® or ColdCure® Wrap, your injured tissue becomes vulnerable to further damage. You don't want to re-injure your already fragile tissue and make your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome worse. Apply KB Support Tape between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments to provide your wrist with additional support and protection.
Your wrist moves a lot through the day, and when you're injured with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, you feel every little movement. You can't stop and wait for your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to go away, so lets provide some support for your wrist, without taking away your range of motion. KB Support Tape™ is designed to protect your tendons, ligaments and muscles and help prevent further damage as you go through your day. It does this all without restricting your range of motion.
Our skin is soft and elastic and can stretch much more than the tissue underneath. When you apply KB Support Tape to your skin, it becomes a much more rigid surface than before; serving to limit how much the skin can stretch. KB Support Tape™ makes your skin a source of outside support to hold your tissue in place, helping you avoid re-injury. That's why we call it armor for your injury.

KB Support Tape™ - Protection from Re-Injury
Too busy to be injured? Have to keep going? Then KB Support Tape is your "must have". Constant re-injury is often the biggest reason your Carpal Tunnel doesn't heal. It heals when at rest but when you get back on the move, the injury gets worse. Athletes are always taped up. That's to prevent against re-injury while they are active. And KB Support Tape® is the best for that purpose. Taping is very underappreciated and very effective. If you have to keep moving, you have to tape.
The color is purely your sense of style.
The Pre-Cut Strips are super convenient, but the Continuous Roll gives you more control over how you tape your wrist and you get the most use out of a single roll.
BFST® Wrist Wrap - Heal the Fastest
If you want to just stick with the most essential piece, the BFST® Wrist Wrap is your best choice. This Class II medical device actively stimulates healing in your wrist to get you on the mend ASAP! As is, this device plugs into a wall outlet for 20 minute sessions of comfortable soothing Blood Flow Stimulation. To Stimulate Healing it is really all you need. Treat yourself consistently and routinely with treatments in the morning and at night, and before any strenuous activity and your healing process will happen as fast as possible.
ColdCure® Wrist Wrap - Stop the Pain
If your biggest issue is managing your pain, then you definitely want the ColdCure® wrap. The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap comes with 3 swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. 3 gel packs means continuous uninterrupted cold treatments when you need it, for as long as you need it. This isn't that 'blue goo' that you get from the drug store, no way. This is super gel. It holds tons more cold and stays cold much longer. Its ice that bends like rubber. It's amazing. The elasticized wrap holds the cold firmly in place against your injury sucking away the pain while it gently reduces swelling. If pain is your #1 concern, this is your #1 solution. With extra gel packs included you can treat the pain over and over again, never running out of ice.
Generally, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is an injury that needs rest. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is typically caused by repetitive strain, so allowing your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to stabilize and heal with minimal movement is going to be ideal. If you find yourself in line for Physiotherapy, do so with caution. Physio can be harmful if stretching and exercises are started too early. Your injury first needs to stabilize, and in order to stabilize the injury you need to rest. As you know, when you rest, your blood flow slows down which doesn't help your injury heal which is why BFST® is so important early on.
At the beginning of your injury, even before the injury has had a chance to stabilize, long before you start physio, the ColdCure® Wraps will help keep the pain and swelling under control.
The BFST® will increase blood flow to get the healing process started.
Because you don't have to move to use them, the King Brand BFST® and ColdCure® Wraps can be started any time.
The earlier the better!
Don't start Physical Therapy until your condition has stabilized. When you start, if you feel any pain during or after PT speak up! PT is not supposed to hurt and if it does you may be re-injuring your feet.
Use your ColdCure® wrap after any heavy activity and after PT. Use the BFST® before PT and before any other heavy activity.
The product is fantastic. I've had this thing with my Wrist for probably two and a half years. I've looked at this so many times and thought "that isn't going to work", and it really does! I'm very happy with it.
Robert from Nevada BFST Wrist Jan 24, 2023
BFST® stimulates blood flow through your entire wrist while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed carpal canal can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the healthy, high-quality blood flow that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for the injured tissue to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. They feel great. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their wrist as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. Since the effects of each 20 minute BFST® treatment last for up to 4 hours, it's best to spread your treatments out throughout the day. For best results, we recommend 3-4 BFST® treatments per day. An ideal treatment regimen would be one treatment first thing in the morning, another treatment in the afternoon, a treatment in the evening, and the last treatment of the day right before bed. When your last BFST® treatment ends right before you go to bed, take an ibuprofen-based NSAID. This will help you have a more restful sleep.
While the promotion of blood flow has obvious benefits, the reminder of the injury is also incredibly important. The reminder of the injury is what helps you move with care so you don't end up overdoing it and re-injuring yourself. Avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. That's why we recommend that you keep wearing your BFST® Wrist Wrap between treatments. It's designed to be worn even when turned off to help protect your wrist from re-injury. This will go a long way towards shortening your recovery time. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the device and gently tighten the wrap to your wrist. This will act as a reminder of your injury. It will also provide your sore wrist with light support and protection.
Avoid the dangers of pain killers. King Brand ColdCure® Wrist Wraps are much safer and more effective than pain killers. ColdCure® Wrist Wraps start relieving the pain caused from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome within minutes. There's no need to wait for 20 minutes for your pain killers to start working. There's no need to wait 4 hours between treatments! ColdCure® Wrist Wraps are specifically designed for your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It doesn't matter what size your wrist is or where the pain is located in your wrist, this is a custom wrap specifically designed to reduce the swelling in your wrist, and you can use them as much as you like. If there's pain, apply your ColdCure® Wrist Wrap!
With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome sharp stabbing pains can frequently be felt when you move your wrist the wrong way, and it causes us to rely heavily on pain killers. But honestly, pain killers are not your friend. It is understandable that you are looking for the relief from pain. Remember, though, the pain is there to stop us from hurting the area further. The pain is your body saying please stop doing that! While pain killers are a welcome relief, they can be dangerous to take when you're active. Pain killers can completely block the pain signal, making you unaware of any further damage you could be doing to your wrist. Pain killers should be restricted to times of rest.
When it comes to pain killers, some products are much more effective than others. Some can actually help your injury when used correctly and others will only make it worse. According to the National Institute of Health, our own government body tells us that Acetaminophen overdose is the leading cause for calls to Poison Control Centers (>100,000/year) and accounts for more than 56,000 emergency room visits. And acetaminophen (Tylenol) won't help you get better one bit. It only puts you at risk of more injury. If you want help choosing the right pain killer and want advice on how to use it more safely and correctly, give us a call at 1-844-400-2525. We will give you excellent guidance. No charge. No purchase necessary.
To maximize healing and minimize pain and swelling, complete a BFST® treatment right before bed. We can give you advice on medication you can take to reduce the pain and help you heal while you sleep. The BFST® treatment will work towards healing while you sleep, and the medication will work to relieve the pain and inflammation so that you can experience restful sleep. During the day, ColdCure® treatments are the best choice to continue to reduce inflammation while you are active. Our medical grade injury tape, KB Support Tape, is excellent for reducing re-injury and pain when you need to be active as well. If you're in pain, give us a call now for free advice 1-844-400-2525.
I have to tell you, your product is very good. Your phone support is very helpful. Thank you.

For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Carpal Tunnel Surgery, 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. As a result, ColdCure® therapy can be applied to your wrist for extended periods of time, providing superior relief from the swelling and pain that comes with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. While King Brand® makes ColdCure® devices for all parts of the body, there's no better version than the ColdCure® Wrist Wrap. Put it on and you will instantly feel relief and relaxation as it draws the pain and tension out of your wrist. You can use it at home or on-the-go and it feels wonderful the entire time you are wearing it.
The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap is made entirely of very stretchy material. It wraps around your wrist and applies a very gentle pressure to the Carpal Tunnel area. The wrap comes with 3 swappable cold packs of a very special design. They are soft and flexible and mold all the way around your wrist, yet the gel inside them won't move out of place. Unlike gooey blue gel that migrates to other areas of the pack, our gel won't flow away from your injury. The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time, so you can have the other two charging in the freezer to keep your therapy going. Do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, for as long as you need the relief.
KB Support Tape provides your injury with lightweight, comfortable compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. You can wear it during all of your daily activities and it won't get in the way or restrict your movement.
KB Support Tape comes in 2 different styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These 2 styles come in 3 different colors: Blue, Black & Beige. There's no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your personal style.
The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are ideal for people who want to use their tape on-the-go. Since they're already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can apply and go! Each roll of Pre-Cut KB Support Tape contains 20 individual strips. Each Pre-Cut Strip is 2 inches wide and 10 inches long.
The Continuous Rolls of KB Support Tape are perfect for you if you're looking for a more customizable Tape. You can cut the Tape into a variety of different shapes and sizes to achieve a completely unique application for your injury. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.
The above application for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is only an example. It acts as a good starting point for most people when applying KB Support Tape for the first time. When applying KB Support Tape, you want to use two pieces of tape. One piece is going to be 8 inches long and the second is going to be 4 inches long. Ensure that the ends of the tape are rounded, as this will help ensure that the tape stays on as long as you need it to.
Apply the 8 inch piece of tape along the top of your arm. You want to cover your pain. Lay the first one inch of tape down on the back of your hand with 0% stretch. This is called your 'anchor'. Your anchor ensures that the KB Support Tape will stay in place throughout the day. Once the anchor is secured, apply about 50% stretch through the tape and apply it to your forearm, remembering to leave the last one inch of tape with 0% stretch at the end.
The second piece of tape will be applied around your wrist. You don't want the ends of the tape to touch, so shorten the tape if needed. Create your anchor at the end of the tape and apply it to your wrist. Using 25% stretch, stretch the tape slightly and adhere it to your wrist, leaving the last inch of tape with 0% stretch.
Applying the KB Support Tape will get easier with each application. Pay attention to where your pain is located and modify your taping application as needed. Ideally your taping application will be in a T or X formation with each application, and where the two pieces of tape overlap is where you should be feeling the most pain. This is where you will have the most support.
Your company's very good. I literally found you guys through a Google Search. I think I Googled carpal tunnel and you guys were one of the top that came up. Super helpful, I got this stuff and everything's fine and I've been using the leg one for for my knee as well. I have meniscus tears, I'm all beat up.

Combination Therapy means using the right product at the right time. This is much more effective than just using one product at all times because each product addresses a specific issue. You have ColdCure® to relieve your pain and swelling, BFST® to promote blood flow and accelerate healing, and KB Support Tape for protection and re-injury prevention, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
A very important part of treating your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is to use the ColdCure® Wrap to help reduce not only the visible swelling you may see on the surface, but also the inflammation you may have and cannot see, deep down in the soft tissue. You can use it several times a day. Use it anytime you want pain relief and after any significant exercise with your wrist even if it doesn't hurt afterward.
You should rely more heavily on ColdCure® treatments immediately after exercise because the inflammation will continue to re-develop when you are active. Being aggressive with back to back cold treatments after exercise will give your body a chance to get ahead of the inflammation, and prepare your wrist for the blood flow that's needed to help heal quickly.
Introduce your BFST® treatments at your less active times of day and before significant exercise. Keep your swelling and inflammation under control with ColdCure® but do not use ColdCure® and BFST® close together. Use BFST® in the morning, before bed, and after longer periods of resting your injury. When doing your treatments, you should only feel a slight warming sensation. At any time if it feels HOT or uncomfortable, discontinue use as you still have too much inflammation and swelling to complete a treatment.
Each BFST® Treatment will last only 20 minutes, but the increase in blood flow will last up to four hours. Ideally your treatments should be spaced out throughout the day, so you can promote good blood flow all day long. If you can't do 3-4 treatments a day, your two most important treatments are first thing in the morning, and right before you go to bed. This will ensure that you have a great start to your day and you can rest well at night.
If you are planning on being active throughout the day, complete a BFST® treatment before any type of physical activity. It can be as simple as washing the dishes. Always assess how you are feeling after your activity, as there's a chance you may need to apply your ColdCure® to treat any new inflammation generated during your activities.
The goal with your BFST® Treatments is not to increase on the levels as quickly as possible, but to condition your circulatory system to allow for the much needed increased blood flow. Staying on the lowest level to where you feel any warmth - remember it's just a slight warmth - will be the most effective way to start healing your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. When can you move up to the next level? You can move up in levels when you feel barely any warmth from the wrap at all. This means that you've successfully conditioned your circulation and you're ready to move up. Some people can move up in a few weeks, some people it takes a lot longer. It just depends on how well your body adjusts to the increase in blood flow.
Do a ColdCure® treatment any time you experience a pain flare-up or after any physical activity to prevent further injury and reduce swelling and inflammation. Remember, staying on top of your inflammation will allow you to complete more BFST® treatments throughout the day.
Wait 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment before doing another BFST® treatment. This time will allow the blood flow and body temperature to regulate again. Refrain from using ColdCure® within the 4 hours following your 20 minute BFST® treatment, unless you notice an increase in pain during your BFST® Treatment.
ColdCure® treatments will slow down the blood flow, which isn't ideal, but sometimes necessary to relieve the swelling and inflammation generated. The BFST® will increase your blood flow which is important for faster healing.
KB Support Tape™ is very important to help with your injury recovery. As you move throughout the day, your skin and your tendons move with you. Using the KB Support Tape™ over your injury will make your skin less flexible - therefore protecting your injury - without restricting your range of motion. KB Support Tape™ can be used at the same time as your BFST® and ColdCure® Treatments without any issues, but try to have your first BFST® treatment of the day without the KB Support Tape™ applied. After your BFST® treatment has been completed, then apply the tape. Removing the tape before the last BFST® treatment of the day will provide the best results.
*While the KB Support Tape can be worn during your BFST® treatments, you will lose a small amount of effectiveness due to the barrier the Tape creates. If you are taping and doing multiple BFST® treatments throughout the day, do your first treatment before the Tape is applied and your last treatment after the Tape has been removed at the end of the day.
When you're recovering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, the pain ends long before you've finished healing. In fact, the pain is usually gone once your tissue is about 20-30% healed. The entire healing process is very complex, and takes much longer than most people realize. (You can click here for the full story). The key thing to remember is that long after the pain stops, your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is still healing. This means you need to keep doing BFST® treatments in order to complete the healing process. Doing regular BFST® treatments for several months after the pain is gone is extremely beneficial. Do a BFST® treatment prior to any physical activity. This will act as a warm up for your circulatory system. You should also continue to use KB Support Tape to help protect the wrist from re-injury.
I purchased the BFST and Coldcure wrist wraps several months ago. After several weeks of use the carpal tunnel I was treating improved and I continue to use the wraps daily which offer continued relief from the pain I had been experiencing.

The BFST® Wrist Wrap is an FDA Registered Class II medical device. This means it has been designed, manufactured and tested to extremely high standards when it comes to safety, quality and efficacy. The FDA expects no less. The FDA holds all manufacturers of medical devices accountable, unlike manufacturers of consumer grade products. That's one of the things that sets BFST® Wraps so high above the rest.
The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our proprietary Energy Web®, specially controlled and incredibly safe, low levels of EMR energy envelop your wrist and stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, accelerating the healing process.
BFST® Wraps come with a 3 level power controller. Everyone should start their treatments at Level 1 and work their way through the levels gradually as their Carpal Tunnel heals. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up the healing process. You need to condition the body first.
When you first start your treatments on Level 1, your wrist will feel quite warm. This is because at first, your circulation is poor. The more treatments you do, the less warming sensation you will feel. This is good. As the warmth lessens from treatment to treatment, this is an indication that the circulation in your wrist 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 does not mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.
BFST® Wraps are far more effective than heating pads. BFST® Wraps penetrate deep down to the area of injury to create an ideal environment for healing. Heating pads can't do this. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your damaged tissues by improving your blood flow circulation. All heating pads do is bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. The difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad is significant.
The Energy Web® of the Wrist BFST® device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap helps shape the Energy Web® to wrap around your entire wrist to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over your Carpal Tunnel. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed. The wrap can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for your injured wrist. The device disconnects right at your wrist from the power supply and controller, so you are free to move around your home when not receiving treatment, while still wearing the wrap for support and comfort.
What sets KB Support Tape apart from the rest? It's not athletic tape, it's medical 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 with safer materials than most baby products, including toys, clothing and 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. Some big brand athletic 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.
The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap is an FDA Registered Class I medical device. Cold and compression applied to a wrist with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing the long term, permanent damage that can result from soft tissue injuries. The ColdCure® Wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries.
ColdCure® RigiGel® packs are much safer and more effective than ice and products that use mushy blue gel. Why? Because RigiGel® packs are like ice, but they stay at 32°F / 0°C. While they may start at about -4°F / -20°C straight from the freezer, after a few minutes they will go to 32°F / 0°C and stay at 32°F / 0°C for a long time. This is the ideal temperature for cold therapy, because it's cold enough to relieve your pain and swelling, but safe enough to not cause cold burns. Ice and blue gel packs will also start at -4°F / -20°C and rapidly go to 32°F / 0°C, but then their temperature keeps rising quickly, instead of staying in the safe, effective zone of 32°F / 0°C.
While XC Gel® packs are designed to be stored in the freezer, you can store them in the fridge if you'd prefer them to be less cold. Not all freezers are the same. If you find that the gel is too stiff from the freezer, leave it out for several minutes before inserting it inside the wrap. When the pack is soft enough to bend, it's safe and ready to use for treatment.
Most people think that RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation) is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury. The truth is that ice can be dangerous. Ice can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue. The proper solution is RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression & Elevation. We don't want to apply ice -- we want to apply cold that is just above freezing. Yes, you want cold - and lots of it - but not so cold that it is below the freezing point of water.
XC Gel® packs contain 3x more gel per lb than other packs, for maximum coverage of your sore wrist. When stored in the freezer, our XC Gel® packs have 10x more cooling power than standard gel packs. This means faster relief of your pain and swelling. It also means you won't have to get up to swap the gels as often. Bigger packs with more gel inside, plus superior cooling power equals a better, more effective cold treatment.
The ColdCure® Wrist gel packs are specifically designed for the shape of the wrist. They mold comfortably all the way around your entire wrist to ensure that your Carpal Tunnel receives an even distribution of cooling power. All of our gel packs are custom designed for a specific body part. Each part of the body is uniquely shaped, which is why each one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too. This product has 100% been designed to treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® formula helps to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the gel pack. When cold pressure is applied to an injured wrist, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. The cold energy in our gel packs is transferred from the cold spots to the warm spots much more effectively. This is a valuable improvement as your hot, swollen injury will receive the cooling power of the entire pack. The temperature-balancing power of these gels is unmatched.
XC Gel® packs have 2 different colored sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides will give you all the same benefits that our amazing XC RigiGel® has to offer. The XC Gel® pack can be inserted with the white side facing towards your wrist or away from your wrist since XC Gel® packs are not side specific.

If you do have to undergo Carpal Tunnel surgery, here's a summary of what you can expect.
There are 2 types of Carpal Tunnel surgery:
Open Carpal Tunnel Surgery: An incision is made at the base of the palm and from here the transverse carpal ligament is released (cut free) from the median nerve.
Endoscopic Surgery: An incision is made in the palm and wrist and an endoscope (small camera) is inserted inside. The transverse carpal ligament is then cut, releasing tension from the median nerve.
Following the surgical procedure your hand will be wrapped. Your stitches should come out after about 10-14 days. In regards to long term effects, there is no indication that one surgery is more effective than the other. On average, people who have undergone endoscopic surgery have reported faster healing times and less pain when compared with feedback from people who have undergone open surgery. Talk to your doctor about which surgery is best for you.

The King Brand® products shown are FDA Registered medical devices. That is not all. They are also registered with Health Canada which means they get twice as much review.
FDA and Health Canada Registration does not mean that we fill out a form to become Registered. Our claims are quite significant, and because of these claims the government agencies visit for week-long inspections to ensure that the end user is always receiving the safest effective medical devices we can offer. With two different countries of regulators this means our products get twice the oversight, ensuring exceptional quality and performance.
It is not required but we are also ISO-13485 compliant and registered. This enforces standards are established by the International Standards Organization for global manufacturers of medical devices. This means more on-site week long audits every year ensuring our quality and products meet strict international standards.
It is not required by any regulator, but we use only the safest materials in our products. ISO-10993 regulation ensures that our products are made from higher quality materials than most baby products, including diapers. This is the highest bio-compatibility safety standard in the world. This is the highest hospital grade - think Intensive Care and Operating Rooms. Our materials go through ISO-10993 testing to ensure they are safe for you. No consumer products are produced to this high standard.
King Brand products are, in fact, hospital grade through and through. ISO-60601 is the International Standard for Medical Device safety from an electrical standpoint. In spite of the BFST® being an electrical device, BFST® can be used in hospital emergency rooms and operating rooms without affecting other equipment. You can use any medical device with a BFST® and neither device will know the other one is there. This is a very tough standard to meet, but we do it and you benefit.
King Brand products meet over 20 different safety and quality standards that are not required even for medical devices and FDA registration. If we think there is anything that can be done to make our products safer and more effective, we have done it. That is the approach to everything we do and that is why our company and products are so highly regarded.
