Accidents/Injuries happen, and usually your no where near any medical facility when it happens. And for most sprains, strains, twists and bangs, using a cold compress usually takes the pain away and soothes the injured area. But again, when your no where near any place with a handy ice dispenser what can you do. Well, if you carry a packet or two of Physicool’s Cooling Bandages in your gear bag, you’re always going to be ready for that “Just in Case” scenario.
The Physicool Bandage is ideal for athletes that are on-the-go and want to get the benefits of taping with the cooling compression technology that Physicool offers. Each bandage is self-adhesive and will stay cold for 2-3 hours. The Ice Wrap is ideal for hikers and backpackers that want an ice alternative in their first aid kit. The Physicool bandage provides all the benefits of a cooling aid, but without the need for refrigeration.
Because the bandage is fastened to the injured limb, it provides consistent, ergonomic relief, quickly reducing swelling and pain, by drawing out the heat in the injured area, whilst helping speed up healing and recovery time. Physicool is a recognized medical treatment and can easily be stowed in any athlete’s sports bag, hiker’s backpack or taken along for a ride with any cyclist. After all, isn't it better to know you have a "Cold Therapy" packet available when you need it, ice machine handy or not?
Naturally, depending on the type of injury you experience, please consult with your family doctor or “immediate care unit”.
