DuraSoft - Ice Up

5 November 2015

If you're an athlete, or just a casual exerciser, you'll probably know some of the benefits of ice, and using it either after a workout to help muscle soreness, or after an injury to try and speed up the healing process. DuraSoft has harnessed the restorative and healing properties of cold therapy to make some of the best products on the market for treating soft tissue injuries. 

Who Are DuraSoft?

DuraSoft specialises in using innovative freezable inserts in their products, held in place with compressive supports. It's widely know that the RICE acronym (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) is one of the most simple and effective methods of treating a range of aches, pains, strains, sprains and more. DuraSoft products give you both the 'I' and the 'C', leaving the other two letters up to you.

Ice, Ice, Baby

Cold therapy is well known for its healing benefits. Cold slows down blood flow to an injury, and by doing so it reduces pain and swelling. The blood vessels narrow (vasoconstriction) which means less blood goes to the site of the injury. By elevating the injury this helps to keep blood from pooling even more effectively so less swelling will occur. Cold therapy is great for strains, sprains, bumps, bruises and more. It should be applied for no longer than 20 minutes at a time, before being removed for at least 10 minutes and then reapplied. DuraSoft products make this process easier by holding the ice securely in place so you don't have to - definitely preferable to a bag of peas!


DuraSoft Foot and Ankle Ice Pack Wrap

The DuraSoft Ice Pack Wrap is perfect for dealing with an injury such as a sprained ankle, or just for general aches and pains after a workout. Simply freeze the ice pack inserts, insert them into the ice pack wrap, and wrap around the shoulder securing with the elasticated straps. The ice inserts are constructed from gel cells that freeze. As the gel cells are separated within the ice pack itself, rather than the ice pack being a solid slab of ice when frozen, you are able to bend and shape the ice inserts around the foot and ankle as required to provide good contact for effective cold therapy. The inserts can also be heated to apply heat therapy, in order to soothe the muscles and relieve pain.

DuraSoft Knee Sleeve Ice Pack Wrap

The Knee Ice Pack Wrap has two ice inserts which provide continuous cold or hot therapy to the knee area. This knee ice pack wrap is suitable for knee injuries both acute and chronic, and is also excellent for post operative use for rehabilitation. 

The product provides effective cryotherapy which can reduce pain and swelling, and can also facilitate faster recovery from injury. All DuraSoft Ice Pack Wraps can effectively penetrate surgical dressings to decrease pain, swelling and secondary hypoxic tissue injury. If you need replacement sleeves or extra ice inserts then the DuraSoft Knee Sleeve and the Additional Ice Insert are ideal. For cold therapy on shoulder injuries the DuraSoft Shoulder Ice Pack Wrap is the ultimate choice.
