Pump up the therapy! This hot or cold knee support uses a unique pneumatic compression pump, just like the pump your doctor uses on a blood pressure cuff, to pump up the compression and the amount of contact the hot/cold gel pack makes with the knee. Once available by prescription only, this support is easy to use and designed to fit snugly and securely for maximal therapy and comfort.
The ThermoActive Knee Support is uniquely designed to provide therapy to all four areas of your knee simultaneously: above the patella, below the patella, left of the patella, and right of the patella. Utilizing adjustable straps combined with the compression pump allows you to apply specific pressure to each of these areas. Precise anatomical fitting allows you to walk with the support during therapy for increased freedom.
The gel pack within the support 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 walking, you can do a 5-10 minute heat therapy session to help loosen up an arthritic, sore or stiff knee. Cold therapy, along with compression, is commonly helpful after a muscle injury, sprain or strain to help 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 of the gel pack 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 instructions: To fit the knee support correctly, there are two (2) measurements that are required: The circumference below the knee and the circumference above the knee.
The support fits circumference up to 20in below the knee as is or up to 30in with extender straps that are included.
The support fits circumference up to 21in above the knee as is or up to 31in with extender straps that are included.

I've had trouble with my knee for years. Thankfully I never had to have surgery on it. But I got this product, hoping it would give me some relief. And thankfully....it works great! The compression is evenly dispensed around my knee and it feels really good. It hasn't cured my pain yet, but I love how it feels and helps the pain subside.
