Rapid Recovery for Insertional Achilles Tendonitis
Insertional Achilles Tendonitis involves the lower portion of the heel, where the tendon attaches or "inserts" into the bone. Tendonitis that affects the insertion of the tendon can occur at any time, even in people who are not overly active. If you don't seek proper and complete treatment for your Insertional Achilles Tendonitis, there is a possibility of the tendon rupturing or tearing.
It's important to understand that you need to rest your Achilles in order to heal. You may want to consider using crutches to help keep the weight off your injured ankle. While rest will definitely help you avoid re-injury, you will also need to treat the condition itself. We have the products you need to stop the pain and speed the healing of your Insertional Achilles Tendonitis. These products are the BFST® and ColdCure® Achilles Wraps.
You need to get rid of swelling to help reduce pain in your Achilles quickly. You need the ColdCure® Achilles Wraps from King Brand® Healthcare.
The Ultimate Solution:
If you really want to get better, here's exactly what you need to do.
Wear your ColdCure® Wrap as much as possible to relieve your pain and swelling and protect your Achilles Tendon from further damage.
Do a BFST® treatment first thing every morning. Do 2 or 3 more BFST® treatments throughout the day. This will help you heal quickly.
Avoid re-straining the injury as much as possible. Resting is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing Insertional Achilles Tendonitis.
Do this and your Insertional Achilles Tendonitis can truly heal -- finally.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You don't have to wait. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For Insertional Achilles Tendonitis, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) gives your injured Achilles tendon the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.
Blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area -- a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured Achilles tendon 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® Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Insertional Achilles Tendonitis at a surprisingly rapid rate.
Cold Compression is Essential for Managing Pain
Cold compression reduces swelling
To minimize pain and swelling, complete a ColdCure® treatment any time your pain level increases, or if you have been active. The ColdCure® Achilles Wrap provides superior relief of the swelling and pain that comes with Insertional Achilles Tendonitis. ColdCure® Achilles 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® Achilles Wrap has been custom designed to perfectly fit the back of the Ankle, to ensure that your injury receives an even distribution of cooling power.
Protect Your Achilles Between Treatments
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 Insertional Achilles Tendonitis worse. Apply KB Support Tape between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments to provide your Achilles Tendon with additional support and protection.
Your ankle moves a lot through the day, and when you're injured with an Achilles Tendon Injury, you feel every little movement. You can't stop and wait for your Insertional Achilles Tendonitis to go away, so lets provide some support for your ankle, 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.
That's right! You don't have to do anything but click the "Cart" button. When entering our site, an Achilles ColdCure® medical device, Achilles BFST® medical device and a roll of KB Support Tape were automatically put into your shopping cart. Most of our customers prefer the Achilles Wraps for treating your Insertional Achilles Tendonitis, but if you find that your pain is closer to the bottom of your heel, then we recommend using the Foot Wraps. You can swap the products by going to the Shop section of our website.

I had severe pain in my achilles tendon with a lump in the center of the tendon. This went on for about 4 years until I finally went to my orthopedic doctor. I was diagnosed with severe tendenosis which is micro tears in the tendon. I had tried physical therapy with stretching, ultra sound and laser light. None of these helped for more than a day. The Doctor put me in a boot for 10 weeks to rest the tendon but it was not getting any better. Why? Because the blood flow was compromised and until that flow could be increased the tendon would not heal. I started researching options for tendonosis help and found King Brand. I ordered it and within 4 days of using it, 3X's a day on the tendon I began to feel a reduction in my pain. Now I have been using it almost two months and I have an 90% reduction in my pain. I can actually palpitate the tendon and feel little if any pain whereas before I could barely touch it and the lump of scar tissue is greatly reduced. Some days when I am walking I all of a sudden realize I am not experiencing any pain. I also had some mild tendonitis on my left achilles tendon so have started using it daily on that tendon and it is almost gone. The BFS does work, nothing else I had tried before getting their product worked. I would highly recommend trying their product.

BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices are designed to promote rapid healing.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through the Achilles while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed Achilles can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for your Achilles tendon to heal properly and quickly.
The BFST® Wrap is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on and sit back and relax. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their Achilles as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. The effects of each 20 minute BFST® treatment last for up to 4 hours, so it's best to spread your treatments out
over the course of your day. An ideal 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 you go to bed.
BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. The BFST® does not pulse or vibrate. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their Achilles as the BFST® Wrap starts increasing their blood flow. Since we recommend that you spread out your treatments, 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 you go to bed. Moving up to Level 3 as quickly as possible does not increase the healing times. It will do the opposite. Conditioning your circulatory system, and moving up the levels when your body is ready will always give you the best results. Staying on Level 1 for one week or one month, will depend on how well your body adapts to the increase in blood flow. Moving up to the next level is appropriate, when you no longer feel any warmth on the lowest level.
The promotion of blood flow has obvious benefits. The reminder of the injury is incredibly important too, because avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. The BFST® Wrap is designed to be worn even when turned off, to help protect your Achilles from re-injury, and this goes a long way towards shortening your recovery time. People enjoy the support and cushioning BFST® Wraps provide -- our customers love wearing them because they know it's helping them heal. This positive attitude further contributes to an overall positive recovery plan.

Dealing With Pain:
Dealing With Pain - Consult with us for Free!
Achilles Tendonitis can be so painful and debilitating that 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 Achilles Tendon. 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.
Everything seems to be working much better, I don't have much, if any, pain left, my motion is good... I'm really happy with the results. I'm surprised by them quite honestly but very happy.

ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with Insertional Achilles Tendonitis, nothing works better than cold compression.
ColdCure® technology was developed to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin or underlying tissue. ColdCure® gel packs pose no threat of cold burns or permanent tissue damage caused by freezing of the skin. This makes them much safer to use than other products that use ice. ColdCure® gel packs are completely safe to use for extended treatment durations, meaning faster relief of pain and swelling. Our ColdCure® technology is a huge improvement on regular ice packs.
ColdCure® Wraps come with 3swappable gel packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. Our gel is firm yet flexible, unlike other gel formulas that are mushy and watery. This means the gel holds its form and doesn't flow away from your injured Achilles tendon. The gel won't move, even under heavy pressure for long periods of time. It always stays in place to treat your pain. The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time, so you can have one inside the wrap during your treatment, and the other two charging in the freezer. This will allow you to keep swapping the gels in and out all day. Do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, for as long as you need the relief.
Insertional Achilles Tendonitis affects the area where the Achilles Tendon attaches to the heel bone, making it more difficult to target than cases of Achilles Tendonitis located higher up on the tendon.
Our Achilles Wraps are ideal for targeting areas that are higher than the insertion point, but can still be used to treat Insertional Achilles Tendonitis.
When using the ColdCure® Achilles Wrap for Insertional Achilles Tendonitis, simply turn the gel upside down and slide it down inside the back part of the wrap so it targets the painful area. Make sure you wear a sock during treatment to avoid cold burns. The Energy Web® inside the BFST® Achilles Wrap does not need to be adjusted at all when using it to treat Insertional Achilles Tendonitis, since the warmth and EMR will reach the entire surrounding area.
If the area of your pain is quite low on your heel, you may want to consider using our ColdCure® and BFST® Foot Wraps. The Foot Wraps cover the entire bottom of the foot and up the back of the heel. The Foot Wraps won't cover any area of your Achilles Tendon that's above the insertion point, so if you do have any pain above the heel area, you should probably consider the Achilles Wraps instead of the Foot Wraps.
The ColdCure® Foot Wrap should be used with an Accessory Strap. The Accessory Strap can be applied around the back of the heel area to ensure you get the compression you need during your cold treatments. You don't need to use the Accessory Strap with the BFST® Foot Wrap since BFST® Wraps are designed to be worn so you can fit two fingers between the wrap and your body.
I used it last night and this morning and it already felt better. It's been hurting for about a year and I came across this product a month ago. Luckily I came I across the product because I feel like it is working. There is a lot of good reviews on it just for my problem, Achilles Tendonitis. It feels like it's one of the only things that would help.
The Accessory Strap can provide a more customized fit for the ColdCure® Foot Wrap. The strap provides added compression to the back of your Achilles Tendon to provide the necessary Cold and Compression in order to relieve your swelling when using the Foot Coldcure® Wrap. Just attach one end of the Accessory Strap to the back of the wrap and pull it around the front as shown in the picture above. Adjust the tightness as necessary.
The Accessory Strap can provide extra compression for the ColdCure® Achilles as well. By design the ColdCure® Achilles Wrap will provide cold and compression to your entire Achilles Tendon, an additional Accessory Strap would ensure the ability to create extra compression if needed.
KB Support Tapeprovides extra support and protection for your Insertional Achilles Tendonitis between BFST® and ColdCure® treatments. It also provides lightweight, comfortable compression without getting in the way of your daily activities or restricting your movement.
KB Support Tapecomes in 2 different styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These styles also 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 fast, easy and convenient. Since they're already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can just apply and go! Every roll of Pre-Cut KB Support Tapecontains 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 ankle. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.
The application pictured for Insertional Achilles Tendonitis is only a guideline. If this application method isn't effective, find the point of pain and apply the Tape there. Experimenting with different taping applications for Insertional Achilles Tendonitis will help you find the one that works best for you.
The Medical Tape Advantage
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 from materials that are safer than most baby products, including diapers, toys and clothing. 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 is of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape is manufactured to such high standards.
This Rechargeable Battery Pack is designed to make your BFST® Wrap completely mobile. It attaches anywhere on your wrap by using the Velcro patch included, and lasts 20-30 treatments, depending on what level you're on. This means you can do your treatments wherever you go! You can do treatments in the car, at work, or while you're doing chores around the house, all without being plugged in. Use it wherever the day takes you.
The Battery Pack is easily charged using your BFST® power supply. The indicator lights on the Battery let you know when it needs to be charged again. It takes approximately 4 hours to achieve a full charge when the Battery is at 0%. The Battery Pack makes it so much simpler to get in your 3-4 BFST® treatments per day, because you don't have to wait around while you're plugged into an outlet anymore.
*The Rechargeable Battery Pack is specifically designed to work with your BFST® Achilles Wrap. Your BFST® Wrap comes with the components you need for treatments and to charge the Battery. For further information on whether a Battery Pack is suitable for your treatment schedule, please contact our Treatment Advisors by email or phone.

BFST® for Rapid Healing
ColdCure® for Pain & Swelling
KB Tape to Prevent Re-Injury
Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape throughout your treatments. Combination Therapy is much more effective than using just one product or the other. This is because you're getting the pain and swelling relief of ColdCure®, the healing benefits of BFST®, and the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Achilles Tendonitis.
Step 1: Reduce Swelling and Inflammation
A very important part of treating your Achilles Tendonitis 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 of your ankle 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 Achilles Tendon for the blood flow that's needed to help heal quickly.
Step 2: Heal Your Injury
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 going for a walk. 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 Achilles Tendonitis. 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.
Step 3: Treat Flare-Ups - Timing is Important
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.
Step 4: Use KB Support Tape™
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.
Step 5: Complete The Healing Process
When you're recovering from Achilles Tendonitis, 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 Achilles Tendon 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 your ankle from re-injury.
Let me say that I've had previous injuries in the past. To date, your product really produced the quickest results.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices that meet very high standards of quality, safety and performance. They comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards that are in place to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. Manufacturers of consumer grade products can't say the same, because their products are not FDA Registered.
The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) Achilles Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in the injured tissue below your skin. Utilizing our proprietary Energy Web®, the BFST® device brings specially controlled and incredibly safe amounts of EMR to your injured tissue. This energy envelops your Achilles and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow to your injured Achilles tendon, 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 they heal. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up your healing time. You need to condition the body first.
When you first start your treatments on Level 1, you will feel a slight warming sensation in the treatment area. 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 your circulation is improving. Better circulation means blood flow all the time, not just during treatments. This is the goal. When you feel almost no warmth during a treatment, it is time to move up to the next power level. Don't rush through the levels though. More heat doesn't mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.
BFST® Wraps are far superior to heating pads. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal damaged tissues by stimulating blood flow in the injured area, deep below the skin. All heating pads do is cause blood to pool at the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. Heating pads don't do anything to heal your soft tissues. There is a huge difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Achilles device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap molds the Energy Web® around your Achilles tendon to ensure there is an even distribution of energy over the affected area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that allow you to adjust the fit. After treatment, the wrap doesn't need to be removed. Simply unplug the device from the outlet and gently tighten the straps around your ankle. This will provide your Achilles with light support and protection between treatments.
I've just been using them for probably the past week and so far they seem to be helping.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
ColdCure® Wraps are FDA Registered Class I medical devices. Cold and compression applied to an injured Achilles 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 effectively relieve your pain and swelling, but safe enough to not cause cold burns. Ice and blue gel packs will also start out at -4°F / -20°C and rapidly go to 32°F / 0°C, but then their temperature will keep 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 find them too cold from the freezer. 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, but these people are probably not aware of the dangers that ice can pose. 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 actually RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression & Elevation. You don't want to apply ice, you 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 RigiGel® packs contain 3x more gel per lb than ordinary gel packs, for maximum coverage of your Achilles. When stored in the freezer, XC RigiGel® packs have 10x more cooling power than standard gel packs. This means they stay cold longer so you won't have to swap the gels as often. This also means faster relief from pain and swelling. Bigger packs with more gel inside, plus superior cooling power, means an overall better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Achilles gel packs are specially designed for the shape of the back of the ankle. This ensures that there is an even distribution of cooling power over the entire injured area. We do not use one common gel pack with all of our wraps -- each body part is uniquely shaped, which is why each one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too.

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 have received 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.
