Pump up the therapy! This hot or cold back support uses a unique pneumatic compression pump, just like the pump your doctor uses on a blood pressure cuff, to pump up the compression the amount of contact the hot/cold gel pack makes with the back. Once available by prescription only, this support is easy to use and designed to fit snugly and securely for maximum healing and comfort.
This back support utilizes a strap that conveniently adjusts in the front, allowing you to easily customize the fit. The compression pump helps to secure the gel pack to your lower back, providing a deep, high quality cold or hot experience. The compression also provides anatomical support to your lower back, which increases comfort and provides additional support. This support is dual use, too, as the support can be used without the hot/cold pack as a traditional anatomical lumbar support. This can be used during regular activities, like walking, to provide support and pain management.
If utilizing the gel pack, it can be heated or cooled depending upon its use. Heat therapy may help to loosen tight muscles and tendons. Prior to exercise, athletic practice, or lifting, you can do a 5-10 minute heat therapy session to help loosen up a stiff back. Cold therapy, along with compression, is commonly helpful after a muscle injury, sprain or strain to reduce swelling and decrease pain.
Freezing instructions: Remove gel pack from wrap and store 1 hour in a freezer or 2-3 hours in a refrigerator; this is all that’s needed to get the gel pack cold enough for therapeutic purposes. For immediate injuries that occur outdoors, packs can be cooled in a portable ice-cooler or chest.
Heating instructions: Microwave each side for 15 seconds. Then wait 60 seconds before applying to the body. If necessary, continue to heat in 10-second increments, until you reach the desired temperature.
Sizing: Fits circumference up to 46in as is or up to 66in with extension straps that are included.
