Hot and Cold Compression Wraps are designed to alleviate pain from arthritis, injury, and sports therapy. Speeds up recovery.
Lumark is an effective Cold Compression Therapy system that consists of a cold gel pack that has been covered with a frost free lining to allow application directly to the skin. Each pack contains an adjustable chamber behind each cold pack to provide deep, cold compression around the site of the injury.
The outer black material is a latex free type of neoprene completely covered in looped material to allow the velcro wraps to stick anywhere for your own comfort, inside the blue material feels like a heavy cotton type material that is specifically designed to be frost free and offers an ideal barrier between the ice cold gel pack and your delicate skin. For best results freeze for 2 hours before use and then apply to the injured area for 10-15 minute periods. The inflation occurs from a detachable tubing and hand bulb, so you can inflate the cuff as much as is comfortable and fully adjust through the cold compression therapy process
Using Cold and Hot Gel compression wraps is a drug-free way to relieve pain and inflammation. The gel pack absorbs and delivers heat and cold for the doctor recommended 20 minutes for highly effective therapy. Their dual action provides twice the therapeutic benefit in a single pack: start with cold to reduce swelling and bruising, then switch to heat for penetrating pain relief.
Cold therapy is used for the treatment of inflammation, pain and all injuries that require ice. Compression is used to create a greater cold effect, this cold penetrates deeper into the soft tissue making the treatment more effective and faster.
Hot therapy is beneficial to cure pain or inflammation. When warmth is provided from a hot compress, it soothes and heals the body. It helps in the dilation of blood vessels. This makes it easier for the blood to carry the nutrients all through the body uninterruptedly. This also helps the blood to flush out the toxins from the body.
Caution: Do not put the gel in the microwave or boiling water container. Always use already boiled water and let the gel bag sit there for a few minutes and use it
