Take control of your recovery with a King Brand® ColdCure® Wrap. There's no better treatment for pain and swelling. There are a lot of cold wraps and ice packs out there, but none come even close to ours. Our Wraps use both cold and compression to give you the fastest and most effective relief of pain and swelling possible. Our gel packs contain our own unique gel formula called XC RigiGel®. These outstanding gel packs have many benefits ordinary gel packs just don't have. You can't find this amazing technology anywhere else.
We have ColdCure® Wraps for the Foot, Back, Elbow, Achilles, Front & Side Ankle, Wrist, Leg, Arm, Knee, and Shoulder. Each ColdCure® Wrap and gel pack is specially designed for the shape of the specific body part. This means you get targeted relief of your pain and swelling for the most effective treatments possible. Each body part is shaped differently and each one deserves a custom designed pack if it's going to work the best. The wrap molds the gel pack around the entire body part to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power over the entire injured area. Keeping the cold and compression on your injury throughout treatment is very important, and our ColdCure® Wraps and gels do exactly that.
The Back, Leg and Large Body Wraps are universal and can be used on several different areas of the body. Please feel free to contact us if you're unsure about which product is right for you.
ColdCure® Wraps are designed to be used at home, for convenient and hassle-free treatments. You can have the gels charging in the freezer so they're ready for use when you get home. While we recommend that you rest your injury during ColdCure® treatments, you can walk around and do low impact activities while wearing the ColdCure® Wrap. You can also wear the ColdCure® Wrap without the gel pack to help support your injury. Do a ColdCure® treatment while you read, watch TV, make dinner, surf the internet, do laundry, or any other activity you do around the house. Just make sure you rest your injury sufficiently so you don't further strain and re-injure the area.
ColdCure® Wraps aren't just for home use. Take the wrap to work, school, the gym, on holiday - wherever you go! ColdCure® Wraps are easily portable for use when you're on-the-go. Don't let your injury prevent you from traveling. Pack your ColdCure® Wrap and take it with you when you travel. If your job involves a lot of sitting, you can take the ColdCure® Wrap to work to relieve your pain and swelling throughout the day. Do a ColdCure® treatment after a workout at the gym to prevent further injury and reduce swelling and inflammation. Take the ColdCure® Wrap to school so you can treat your injury in class, during lunch, or while studying.
Cold therapy is ideal for use on acute injuries, usually in the first 24-48 hours after injury, or longer depending on the amount of inflammation in the affected area. Cold therapy should be the first step in treating any fresh tissue injury because it constricts the blood vessels, slowing the flow of blood. This is important because slowing the flow of blood will reduce swelling in the area, thereby helping to relieve your pain. Cold also helps to relieve pain by numbing the injured area.
It's important to understand that while cold therapy is an essential first step to healing, cold itself won't heal your underlying injury. The purpose of cold is to eliminate your inflammation and help with the pain.
Cold therapy should be used for 20 minutes at a time. You should rely more heavily on ColdCure® treatments after exercise because the inflammation will continue to re-develop when you are active, even if you don't feel pain. Being aggressive with back to back ColdCure® treatments after activity will give your body a chance to get ahead of the inflammation and to prepare the injury for the blood flow that's needed to help heal quickly. Depending on where your injury is located, and the severity of your injury will determine how long you need to use Cold Therapy.
Cold therapy is not only effective for new injuries, but for re-injuries as well. Your body creates inflammation to protect itself from further damage, so regular use of ColdCure® treatments after activity will ensure that you're always one step ahead of the inflammation. Use cold therapy if you experience any flare-ups of pain or swelling during the recovery process.
Cold therapy isn't necessary for every injury. If you're not experiencing pain, swelling or inflammation, you don't need to use cold and can start with blood flow stimulation.
If you apply cold to a soft tissue injury for long enough, your nerves will eventually go numb. This interferes with the signals being sent to your brain that register pain. Cold also causes a decrease in blood flow at the site of your injury, which is what helps eliminate swelling. Cold therapy causes your blood vessels to constrict, putting a stop to the increase in blood flow at the site, which decreases your inflammation. The act of bringing down inflammation also helps to relieve pain.
Pain is a common symptom of most soft tissue injuries. It's your body's way of telling you there's a problem. The pain is also there to stop you from making the injury worse. Your response to pain should be to rest and avoid any activities that could cause further injury.
Without the presence of pain, you risk feeling a false sense of ability that can cause you to overdo it physically, leading to re-injury and a much longer recovery time. Cold and compression are much safer and more effective than painkillers. That's because painkillers interfere with your body's ability to warn you that there's something wrong, while cold and compression don't. Painkillers block the pain, but if you're using cold compression, you can still tell when doing an activity is causing pain. 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 reinjury 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.
Swelling is a sign of the body's desire to immobilize the affected area. Swelling means that the soft tissue deep below the skin is injured and bleeding. This blood leaks out into the interstitial fluid in your body. Using cold is a good idea when you have swelling because this reduces the flow of the internal bleeding. Swelling is the body's natural way to compress your nerves. However, using a cold compression device is much more effective because this helps to reduce the pain, which is a result of the swelling itself. Get rid of the pain and the swelling by using cold compression, and you're that much closer to healing. Cold by itself or compression by itself is okay, but nowhere near as effective as both at the same time.
Each ColdCure® Wrap comes with 3 XC RigiGel® packs. Charge the gel packs in the freezer for 2-6 hours prior to use. Insert the gel pack inside the wrap, enclose the wrap around the injured area until the cold diminishes, then swap the gel pack with a freshly charged one.
XC Gel® packs are designed to be stored in the freezer. Use them one at a time, keeping the other two in the freezer so you can keep swapping them out for as many times as you like. There's no need to take a break in between treatments if you're using gel packs stored in the freezer. As long as the gel packs are pliable, they are ready to insert into the wrap. If they are not quite pliable (too stiff to bend) right out of the freezer, leave them on the counter for a few minutes so they can soften up. This will make them easier to insert, as well as a more comfortable temperature to be applied to your injury for long periods of time. Once pliable, you can keep using them as long as you need the pain relief.
If you find the gel packs too cold when stored in the freezer, you can store them in the fridge. Whether your gel packs are stored in the fridge or freezer, you can use the ColdCure® Wrap continuously throughout the day, swapping the XC Gel® packs out when the cold diminishes.
Only King Brand® ColdCure® gel packs contain XC RigiGel®. This specially formulated gel is soft to the touch but doesn't move around under pressure. This means it stays in place to treat your injury, so you get an even and consistent cold treatment over the entire injured area, every time. No matter how hard you press on the gel, it stays in place. It will give a bit for comfort, but it won't move away from your painful injury.
Keeping the cold on your injury throughout treatment is very important if you want to relieve the pain as quickly as possible. Unlike traditional gel packs, XC RigiGel® does not flow away to other parts of the pack, even when put under heavy pressure for long periods of time. Keeping the pressure and cold on the injured area is critical for effective relief of pain and swelling. In terms of flex and form, XC RigiGel® packs feel exactly the same at room temperature as they do straight out of the fridge or freezer. They're firm yet flexible at any temperature for the most comfortable treatments possible.
While the gel doesn't move around inside the pack, the cold energy does. Traditional ice packs have hot and cold spots, but our XC RigiGel® formula distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to an injury, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. Our temperature-balancing gel works to move the cold where it's needed within the gel pack, eliminating the potential for hot spots. This means your painful injury will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack every time. The hyper-conductive power of these gel packs is unmatched.
Compression is an important factor in relieving swelling and inflammation. You want something that will give you the most compression possible. ColdCure® Wraps provide the best in cold compression for maximum relief of your pain and swelling. They're specifically designed for the body part so they always conform perfectly to your injury and offer comfortable support. They're never messy and they don't melt like ordinary ice packs. ColdCure® gel is non-migrating, meaning it won't move away from your injury during treatment. This means faster relief of pain and swelling. ColdCure® treatments are safe - there is no risk of freezer burns because they stay at the safe yet effective temperature of 0°C.
Ordinary cold packs don't offer the compression you need to relieve your swelling and inflammation. They don't conform to the injured area like ColdCure® Wraps, so they often slide off and don't cover your entire injury, leaving you with as much swelling as when you started. Ordinary gel packs are also messy and melt quickly, causing the gel to move away from your injury during treatment. This does nothing to relieve the pain and inflammation. Ordinary ice packs are often uncomfortable, cumbersome, and do not offer any support for the injured area. They can also cause 'cold burns' and permanent damage to your underlying tissue.

The King Brand® products shown are FDA Registered medical devices. That is not all. They have also been 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.
