Great Cooling for Longer term Injury/Swelling
on 17 May 2015
I have tried these and the Koolpak version and the Koolpak instant versions after having a recent surgery to keep the swelling down. For a longer term injury I found these to be the best, the pouch that comes with these allows through enough coldness not to freeze the area too much, but enough that it feels the effects. Because of the nature of the product - being that it is frozen gel, it can be difficult (depending on the area you are pulling it on) to secure the pack to your body. If you want the pack to wrap around your thigh for example it s tricky - but if you have space in your freezer, then put something underneath the middle bit and freeze the pack into a semi circle. These aren't the cheapest, but the quality of the velcro holder does set them a little above the Koolpak. They take about an hour to freeze in a standard freezer and last for about 20 minutes, so if you need constant cooling, you will need to buy 3.
