Elasto-Gel Hot & Cold Therapy Products are easy-to-use therapy solutions! The patented Elasto-gel™ provides both soothing cold and relieving moist heat combined in one unique and innovative product. The flexible and comfortable wraps and packs are indispensable in any first aid kit and yet perfect for everyday use.
Whether used in a professional or industrial setting, athletic field or at home, Elasto-Gel products will not leak even if punctured. These products maintain their shape and remain soft and flexible even at -20°F (-30°C) temperatures. They can be stored in the freezer indefinitely, yet a few seconds in the microwave and the Elasto-Gel Hot & Cold Products are ready to be used for hot therapy.
Most of the Elasto-Gel Hot & Cold Therapy products are designed with strong, 4-way stretch Lycra material. Lycra is not only stretchable to allow total area contact, it is also the best fabric on the market to transfer and conduct heat or cold. Elasto-Gel products are also Latex-Free!
A few seconds in the microwave turns the Elasto-Gel into a moist heat therapy product. Heat therapy provides comforting relief from reoccurring pain, old injuries, reducing soreness, or used in conjunction with other rehabilitation treatments or massage therapy. This warmth improves circulation, increases blood flow, and relaxes sore muscles. Moist heat penetrates deeper than dry heat, providing more relaxation to the joints and muscles. For cryotherapy (cold therapy), Elasto-Gel products stay cold for 20-40 minutes, after 2 or more hours in the freezer. The cool temperatures treat acute pain from new injuries, post-workout soreness, or to help stop bleeding from trauma or surgical procedures. This method of cold therapy also aids in reducing swelling and inflammation in many areas of the body. Use multiple Elasto-gel products for alternating hot and cold therapy. The alternating temperature creates a vascular flush, which is believed to decrease healing time of muscular strains or tendon injuries.
As with any treatment for pain or injury, please consult with your physician for therapy recommendations and instructions for your individual care. If a healthcare professional recommends hot or cold therapy, Elasto-Gel is a perfect choice!
