Pump up the therapy! This hot or cold thigh 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 ankle and foot. 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 Thigh Support Cuff is a versatile product that easily conforms to either the calf or thigh for circumferential compression leg support. The long, rectangular design allows this support to be used on your thigh and also, depending on your size, calf. The circumferential compression provides a deeper tissue treatment than conventional wraps.
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 a stiff or sore thigh or calf. 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.
