Wearable ice packs are supposed to provide both relief and functionality. The fact that you can move around while treating your sore muscles and joints makes them an asset for medical therapy.
Here are three great wearable ice packs that you should consider for any kind of injury you may have in any body part.
Ice Wraptor Ice Wrap
This is a portable cold wrap that you can place on any body part to relieve joint and muscle pain. If you are suffering from any kind of soreness, bruising, or sprain, the Ice Wraptor is a great way to get cold relief for extended periods of time. All you have to do is place some ice in the Ice Wrap’s pouch, wrap the product around the affected area, and go about your regular activities.
The Ice Wraptor can hold a gel or ice pack of up to 5 x 10 inches in size, but can also be used with heat packs as well. It is designed with a mesh at the back to ensure that the cooling effect reaches the adjoining muscles and joint. It has an extra long elastic band that allows you to fit it in any area of the body, whether it’s a small joint, the knee, or even the back. The wrap can expand to about 57 inches.
The exterior is made from smooth but durable fleece that provides adequate insulation and comfort. It uses Velcro to ensure good support and stability, which becomes important especially when there is a lot of movement involved.
If you decide to buy the Ice Wraptor, you will have to get your own ice since that is not included as part of the package.
Koo-Care Flexible Gel Ice Pack and Wrap
Koo-Care Flexible Gel Ice Pack and Wrap is a versatile and high-quality ice pack that is able to provide relief for body aches and pain. This wearable ice wrap comes with a non-toxic gel ice pack that can be reused, frozen, and even microwaved. The ice pack itself measures 4.7 inches by 9.8 inches and can be used to relieve migraines, bruises, sprains, or any kind of injury to any body part.
Apart from the ice pack, this product is designed with an elastic Velcro strap that can be used to hold both cold and heat packs in place. It also consists of a matching polyester wrap and pouch, and an extension band that allows enough flexibility to wrap around any area. The Velcro strap extends to a maximum of 30 inches, while the elastic band extends to 33.5 inches.
The hot compress can be used for treating arthritis, menstrual cramps, muscle spasms, and sprains. The cold compress will treat minor burns, toothaches, headaches, joint pain, and sports injuries.
The ice pack is available in three sizes. The small size is for small parts of the body, medium size is for covering the majority of body parts, and large size is designed to fit adults who want to wrap larger areas of the body.
It is certified by both the CE and FDA and is ideal for home and clinical use. It would be a great addition to your first aid sports kit. The product comes with a warranty of 1 year.
Polar Ice Standard Knee Wrap
This wearable cold therapy ice pack is designed to relieve pain in the knee joint. It is designed for the rehabilitation of knee injuries after surgery, but can also work for any soreness after physical activity. It provides long-lasting cryotherapy by using a soft fleece and gel packs to cover the affected area.
The Polar Ice Standard Knee Wrap comes with its own ice packs, though some users consider the gel packs to be a bit too small. The packs are full of purified water covered in soft fleece to prevent movement of the ice during movement. The soft fleece ensures that the affected area is well insulated and protected from frostbite. It also has easily adjustable hooks and loops to ensure that the wrap is sealed well.
The product can stay frozen for about half an hour before you would have to remove the gel packs and put them in the freezer. The freezable gel packs inside are 1inch x 1 inch x 1 inch in size, but the entire product measures 16 inches L x 12 inches W x 1 inch D.
This knee wrap is available in one universal size. It is large enough to cover the front part as well as the back part of the knee. If you find it necessary, you can also try to use it around the arm or shoulder area.
These wearable ice packs all function on the same technological principles, but you need to consider elements such as size, durability, and functionality when making your choice.
There is an alternative to ice packs, which is 100% drug free wearable using pain relief technology. Quell developed this wearable to kill the chronic pain by blocking pain signals.
