Not sure which product to choose
« on: January 13, 2015, 11:42:54 AM »
Hi

I have achilles tendonitis and I am stumped as to what product I need because there are 4 different ones for the achilles. What is the difference between the basics versus the other products? How does the heating pad and cold pack differ from bfst and coldcure?

Thank you.

Amber

Hi Lucky. Thank you for your enquiry and for your interest in King Brand.

Our 'Basics' line are consumer grade products, not medical devices like the BFST and ColdCure products are. The Basics Achilles Cold Pack has the same gel as the ColdCure Achilles Wrap, except it does not have the XC component (distributes the cold energy evenly). It does contain Perpachil and RigiGel technology so it forms well and holds lots of cold. Also, the single gel pack of the Basics product is sewn into place an is not swappable like ColdCure products. The ColdCure comes with 3 gel packs and is adjustable by Velcro, whereas the Basics wraps are not.

The Basics heating pad is NOT a BFST device. It does not contain an Energy Web. It contains an infrared heating element made from carbon fiber heating wires. As heating pads go, its probably the best one money can buy as they are molded to fit the body and we use very high quality heating pads.  Our BFST wraps are diathermic devices that stimulate blood flow deep within soft tissue, providing nutrient-rich blood and optimized blood flow to the area being treated. You still feel a nice warming sensation from the BFST, but it is not the form of treatment.

For a nice soothing, relaxing effect the Basics Heating Pads are ideal. For the healing of soft tissue injuries, the BFST is the way to go.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,

When I was treating my plantar fasciitis, I bought both types of cold wraps and a BFST wrap. I noticed a huge difference in the cooling sensation  between the two and the ColdCure stayed cold far longer. Best of luck!
