Listing #: 486771984
Drip free re-useable ice pack, an essential first aid kit item. Mid Blue colour with navy lining. Multifit on ladies and mens ankles, elbows and wrists. Has a double layer of fabric to prevent ice burn. This is a no fuss, no mess, readily available treatment method.

Keep it in the car while out playing sport, just put it under a tap as immediate treatment in the first magic hour, even while driving home - or to the hospital! No more balancing a bag of frozen peas dripping and melting all over you.

Great for knocks and sprains, ice therapy restricts inflammation, preventing complications and aids fast healing. It restricts blood flow, and reduces tissue breakdown caused by inflammatory cytokines. Limiting tissue damage speeds up the recovery process. Firmly strap it with the Velcro straps to help provide compression as part of the RICE treatment, (Rest Ice Compression Elevation)

Photos show examples of use on mens and womens wrists, ankles and elbows. Colour may differ. Man is 6"2" tall with fat ankles

20 cm high X 30 cm wide. Care instructions included. The velcro straps extend 20cm. If you want to use it on your knee, I can make one with longer straps for an extra $2

ICE TREATMENT
Submerge in ice cold water and the crystals swell up for instant use effectively adsorbing the heat out of the injured area. Can also be frozen for a longer lasting cold effect. Ice has a prophylactic effect and aids to combat the damage created through the repetitive everyday strain placed upon tendons overstretching during training or competition. Small numbers of tendon fibrils can be torn but no noticeable swelling may be evident. Suitable for use after a hard training session on a known problem area to prevent later swelling.

Proven to work in extreme situations. I use these on my horse and myself and have helped me to win and place in 120km and 160 km one day endurance races with no tendon problems.

HOT TREATMENT
Submerge in hot water and use as normal, or microwave in short bursts
