The Talar Made CCT (Cold Compression Therapy) Knee Wrap has a unique and patented system incorporating a gel pack covered with a frost free lining, allowing application of the wrap directly to the skin. The unique adjustable compression chamber design, positioned behind the cold gel pack provides a conforming compression around the Knee.
After an injury blood vessels are damaged and this allows blood cells and fluid to seep into spaces around the joint, resulting in swelling and bruising. When ice is applied the temperature decreases and constricts local blood vessels, slowing metabolism and decreasing fluid build-up. Ice can also numb nerve endings, reducing the transfer of impulses to the brain that register as pain. The unique Talar Made System provides targeted cold therepy to the place you need it in the ankle and combined with the adjustable inflation you can fulfil 2 of the 4 ideal treatments for soft tissue injury. RICE is the acronym used for this treatment, R – Rest, I – Ice, C – Compression, E – Elevation, all you need to do now is sit back with your leg raised, to reduce the pain, reduce the swelling and more importantly improve your recovery.
The outer black material is a latex free type of neoprene completly covered in looped material to allow the velcro wraps to stick anywhere for your own comfort, inside the blue material feels like a heavy cotton type material that is specifically designed to be frost free and offer an ideal barrier between the ice cold gel pack and your delicate skin. For best results freeze for 2 hours before use and then apply to injured area for 10-15 minute periods.
Knee Wrap Size: 36cm x 32cm. Place the cold blue cloth over your knee with your Patella (knee cap) protruding through the hole at the front, then wrap the two straps around your upper and lower leg to velcro back on itself. The Cold area will keep the whole knee cool, and reduce inflammation from conditions like pulled or strained ligaments (any of the cruciate or collateral), twists, turns, tendonitis and arthritis.
The inflation occurs from a detatchable tubing and hand bulb, so you can inflate the cuff as much as is comfortable and fully adjust through the cold compression therapy process.
