Medisportz Cool Gel Pad
The first response to an injury should be to cool the affected area. The easy answer to first aid cooling for any area, limb, joint or torso is the Medisportz Cool Ged pad.
Ice is often not available and can be difficult to place over the point of injury. It can also be damaging to the surrounding tissue.
Cool Gel Pads provide instant cooling without Ice Shock and also comfortably adheres to the skin. That makes them very useful for areas that cannot be bandaged. Simply open the Cool Gel foil pack, remove the protective cover from the cool Gel pad and apply directly onto the skin for instant cooling treatment.
Although they initially feel sticky, they can be removed painlessly and replaced in the foil pack without removing any hair or leaving any residue on the skin. The gentle adhesion means they can be a quick immediate response to a knock or injury and the sportsperson can continue the activity or the sport without needing to strap or bandage.
The cooling effect lasts for eight hours. If this time is not used up, the pad should be put back in the foil bag, sealed and can be used until the eight hours are fully utilised. This makes them ideal for hot and cold fomentation. The fact that no refrigeration is necessary makes them an ideal item for every first aid kit and on hand at any sporting venue.

Great for treating children's injuries. The gentle cooling and adhesive pad means it can be applied immediately to an injury and is non invasive. It doesn't limit the child's movement or require adult supervision once applied. You also don't have to worry about managing the treatment once the Cool Gel Pad is applied (as you would for ice treatment), and there is no risk of peripheral nerve damage or frostbite.
For maximum cold effect, remove from the foil, peel off the protective backing and wait 30 seconds before applying. The cold effect gradually increases once applied .
