Wrist pain is one of the most common complaints among patients and it is becoming even more common. Whether you are a professional athlete or a professional business person, we are all faced with some sort of hand-wrist coordination which is also repetitive each and every day. The most common treatment for wrist pain is rest and modification to our daily routine, which most of us don't have time for. King Brand has come up with the best solution to ensure proper healing, with a combination therapy of BFST® and ColdCure® technologies!
King Brand Healthcare Products are the innovators of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy. For injuries, blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the area which is required for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, most people use their wrists in their everyday job which then doesn't give much time for rest and healing. Because most wrist pain cases are the cause of repetitive motion, most doctors ask that you find an alternative way to stop the repetition movement you are creating or take small breaks more often. This can all be very hard to accomplish if you aren't able to cater to your doctor's orders. With King Brand BFST® wrist therapy device, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while the patient is at rest or in motion and at rapid rates too.
Professional athletes that use the same constant wrist motion will have a greater risk of developing a wrist injury. Sports such as racquetball, tennis, golf and bowling are all examples of sports that use constant repetitive motion. Secretaries, assistants, writers, transcribers, and encoders are prime examples as well. These jobs require the employee to constantly use their hands and wrist when typing on a computer, writing, or using hand held devices. These wrist injuries can become long term without the proper treatment and care. It has become harder and harder to be able to accommodate to your injuries when we don't have the time or money to seek the proper treatment and care.
Professional athletes are the best example of how quickly people can recover from injuries. When a professional athlete is injured, they have explicit instructions to immobilize their wrist - no physical activity. Injured professional athletes though also are attended to by professional athletic therapists. These pro therapists have always been assigned to the athlete to ensure they supplement the healing process with exercises and stretches, to stimulate blood flow many times each day. Regular BFST® treatments are a standard part of that therapy because more we promote blood flow, the faster patient will heal. That is why professional athletes are back in the game in days while regular patients with the same injuries often take weeks or even months to heal. With the addition of BFST® pro athletes and others who use it are recovering faster than ever.
Pain and swelling are the symptoms that drive patients to seek medical help, without it patients wouldn't even know that their injuries exist. As a professional healthcare provider we recognize that the pain from an injury is not the problem, but only the sign of the problem. Regularly patients rate our professional service based on our ability to address the pain and the 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 the healing process. All too often pain killers are the easy solution, but we all know they are not the best solution.
Even though pain killers are such an easy way to get through pain, it is not the right way. Pain killers (NSAIDs/analgesics) such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and ASA are known anticoagulants - they can prevent the blood from clotting. This group of medicines interfere with normal blood function which is crucial for the optimal healing process. We understand that this isn't the best solution for treating the pain, but narcotics and steroids are not a desirable option 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 steered away from drugs if at all possible. The best possible solution for pain and swelling control is clearly using ColdCure® technology.
ColdCure® wrist wraps are designed specifically for the treatment of pain and swelling from soft tissue injuries of the wrist. They are easy to use, safe, targeted and extremely effective. ColdCure® technology provides control of the swelling and pain without the negatives of drugs. The patient gets the relief they demand and they heal 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. Utilizing our patented Energy Web®, specially controlled EMR energy envelops the affected body part and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the injured area accelerating 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® wrist device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the energy web to mold around the complex form of the wrist to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire injured area. 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 'glove like' device. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed.
After treatment the straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for the injured wrist. 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. 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 be in the muscles, ligaments, tendons, or tendon sheaths within the wrist. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage as a result of a soft tissue injury.
The King Brand ColdCure® Wrist 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.
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 swelling and less handling of the injured area. These all result in a better treatment. 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® Wrist wraps are enclosed in soft, comfortable neoprene wraps. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the wrist. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps - the wrist is shaped very differently from any other body part and each body part deserves a custom designed pack if it's going to work the best. 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 wrist 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 wrist treatment device.
The wraps use Rigid Gel® technology so that the gel does not flow away from the injured area when pressure is applied. The gel stays in place even under pressure. Yet it 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 tender, injured, wrist without having to slip into or out of a 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 reinjury.
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.
