Have you suffered an injury, inflammation or swelling as a result of sports? Then it is very important to cool immediately. This can be done with an instant cold pack. This is a soft cooling element that adapts completely to the shape of your body. It has the same cooling and pain-relieving effect as ice, but it is much more convenient to use. The great thing about this medical device is that it does not need to be kept in the freezer. You can therefore take the cold pack with you everywhere, to the gym, on a trip and so on. In this way you always have a cooling element at hand in the event of an accident. Super handy! Order your instant cold pack before 15.00 p.m. and you will have it at home tomorrow.
Application of the instant cold pack
You can use the instant cold pack to cool a body part in case of:
- muscle injuries
In the above situations, an instant cold pack is often an effective first treatment. Especially with acute injuries, swelling and inflammation, it is advisable to cool immediately.
How does the instant cold pack work?
The instant cold pack consists of a sturdy but soft bag with a cooling compartment on the inside. When you squeeze the bag, a chemical reaction occurs that initiates a cooling process. This makes the cooling bag immediately ice cold. This cold lasts for about 30 minutes. This gives you plenty of time to cool the desired body part.
How do I use the cold pack instant?
Follow these steps when using the cold pack instant:
Locate the inner bag of the cooling pack and squeeze it firmly with both hands to activate the cooling process.
Then shake the bag to ensure that the cooling liquid spreads over the entire package.
Wrap in a cloth
Wrap the cooling bag in a tea towel, washcloth or hand towel before applying it to the skin. If the ice comes into direct contact with bare skin, you run the risk of frostbite. The cloth forms a protective layer, as it were.
You can now use the instant cold pack to cool the desired body part. Gently press the pack against the inflamed or swollen part of the body. The bag stays ice cold for about thirty minutes. After cooling, you can throw away the instant cold pack. This can only be used once.
How long to cool in case of inflammation?
If you have suffered an inflammation or swelling, it is smart to cool immediately. This way you prevent the worst swelling and pain. However, do not refrigerate for more than 15-20 minutes at a time. The cold constricts the blood vessels, slowing down blood flow. You can repeat the cooling regularly, for example every two hours.
Other tips for inflammation
What else can you do to ease the pain and swelling associated with inflammation? In addition to cooling the inflamed muscles with the cold pack, we recommend that you also use a ice cold cooling muscle gel to use. The RÉVVI muscle gel activates a long-lasting and deeply penetrating analgesic effect around the inflamed muscle. Do not use heat gels or other products with heat in the immediate period after the inflammation, as heat can actually make the problem and pain worse. You only apply heat after the acute phase, when the recovery phase begins.
Order your instant cold pack
As you have read, an instant cold pack is a convenient and effective way to get rid of the pain and swelling associated with inflammation and injuries. And this cold pack is also super affordable at RÉVVI! We therefore recommend that you immediately get several of these packs, so that you always have one at hand when you need one.
