Submission + - Cold Therapy Systems vs Conventional Ice Packs

An anonymous reader writes: If you have ever tried to apply an ice pack to a sprained ankle, you know how difficult it is to cover the entire area. Even the most flexible gel pack won't completely surround your ankle, wrist, elbow, knee, or back. Cold therapy pads with IsoComforter’s patented Isotube technology are designed to solve this problem. In contrast to gel packs, cold therapy pads conform to your body, and provide cold therapy for the entire joint. Cold therapy systems use specialized pads that are designed for each specific body part. This means that you can select pads that specifically treats the injury you have.

There are two problems with ice packs: they get warmer as the injury transfers heat, and for most injuries it is difficult to completely cover the affected area. Cold therapy systems provide solutions for both of these problems.

A static ice pack will start at the right therapeutic temperature, but it won't stay that way for long. To combat this problem, IsoComforter’s cold therapy system continually circulates cold water through patented Isotube technology to provide a consistent cooling to the injured area. As the injury warms the water that flows through the system, colder water is circulated through the cold therapy unit. This constant flow of cold water means that the cold source stays at a consistent therapeutic temperature reducing pain, edema, and helps by blocking nerve impulses.

IsoComforter's patented cold therapy pads are Silicone free and resists flow restrictions and stiffening and conform better to body contours. The flow pattern assures a consistent temperature across the pads for uniform therapy, while the foam insulation on the pad and hose helps prevent condensation.

IsoComforter's patented Iso-Tube pads are designed to completely disperse cold therapy across the cooling surface of the pad due to the single flow design. The water flows in one direction allowing for high flow heat transfer.

For years, IsoComforter has proven itself in real-world conditions on patients that have reported exceptional outcomes when using our product. Professional and amateur athletes use cold therapy routinely to keep the performing at their best.

For the ultimate in cold therapy treatment, trust IsoComforter. It's easy to use and proven effective.
