Who Can Make Gains with the Knee Sleeve Ice Pack Wrap?
The wrap does "exactly what it says on the tin". Simply freeze the ice pack inserts, insert them into the ice pack wrap, and wrap around the leg securing with the elasticated straps. The ice inserts of the knee ice pack wrap 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 leg as required to provide good contact with the knee and leg for effective cold therapy. The inserts can also be heated to apply heat therapy to the area, so you can alternate methods.
