The enhanced product incorporates a non-toxic cryotherapy gel that remains flexible after freezing, retaining its cooling properties longer than comparable products. The breathable mesh fabric protects the skin against ice burn, while the elastic straps allow for universal fitting.
Having supplied products to hospitals and surgical centers throughout the US, Cool Relief developed its latest hot and cold therapy wrap to provide longer-lasting relief from muscle and joint pain. The products can be used to treat a variety of knee injuries, such as bursitis and sprains.
Healthline.com explains how cold therapy, also known as cryotherapy, helps treat knee injuries. By reducing blood flow to an area, inflammation and swelling will be significantly reduced, helping to manage associated pain. Alternatively, heat therapy can increase blood flow, soothe muscles and encourage healing.
Cool Relief’s improved gel pack for knee injuries uses a thick fleece material to stay cool for longer, providing additional pain relief. As skin and other tissues can be damaged by direct contact with frozen items, the company has also developed a fabric to protect against such risks.
Additional features of the product include its potential to be used as a heat wrap following 3 minutes of heating in a microwave oven. Gel pack inserts are also replaceable, and the fabrics used are washable.

One user of Cool Relief products recently stated: “I did my research on this type of product and read the reviews. I bought a Cool Relief ice wrap the week before my recent left hip total replacement surgery. The product works great. The wrap system is beneficial, with adjustable Velcro straps that keep it right where you want it.”
