RIGIGEL: NO ORDINARY GEL PACK.

Relieve Pain. Reduce Swelling.

How to Deal With Inflammation

The best way to treat the pain and swelling experienced following an injury is to apply cold to the injured area. Often patients will use painkillers to deal with discomfort relating to their injury, but using this method is dangerous. Painkillers do nothing to treat the pain or inflammation associated with an injury, merely covering up the damage or even making the injury worse. Instead of painkillers, use cold to relieve this pain safely and effectively.

The problem with many ice gels is that they do not properly distribute cold evenly over the whole injury, and do not stay cold for long. The way to fix this problem is to use a ColdCure® cold compression wrap. ColdCure® wraps use thicker, bigger wraps that hold their shape to keep the cold on the injury.


Superior Gel

Most ordinary gels are very thin and don't hold much gel. The gel they do hold can't even stay on the injury, instead moving around unevenly when pressure is applied. This makes most ordinary gels ineffective for treating injuries. ColdCure® wraps, however, use RigiGel® gel packs that are much bigger and thicker than regular ones, and hold their shape instead of flowing away when compression is introduced. RigiGel® gel packs offer superior temperature balancing as well in addition to the sheer amount of rigid gel, ensuring the entire injured area receives an equal amount of relief from pain and swelling.


Use Cold, not Ice

It's common for many people to put ice on their injuries to relieve pain and keep swelling down. However, they are only putting themselves at risk of further damage to their tissue. Ice from the freezer is too cold and can often burn the skin over the injury. To solve this, ColdCure® RigiGel® is designed to be stored in the fridge, where it is not too cold to burn but is more than enough to treat pain and inflammation. There's no need to put yourself at further risk.

Metatarsal fat pads in the bottom of my feet are moving into my toes

I have a "full" feeling in the bottom of my feet and have been trying to find out what the cause is and an effective treatment.  An MRI shows it is not due to nerve impingement from my back.  I do not have diabetes.  I do have extremely high and rigid arches in my feet.  My feet do not really hurt, but they feel like my socks have rolled up under my toes.  One foot doctor told me he feels that the fat pads in the balls of my feet are gradually moving towards my toes causing the "full" or "swollen" feeling.  I have been a runner all of my life and have coached several sports for over 20 years.  This "wear and tear" is causing the condition according to the foot doctor.  He didn't  think that much can be done about the issue.  I am 64 years old.  Has anyone ever heard of this condition and what to do about it?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Re: Metatarsal fat pads in the bottom of my feet are moving into my toes

Hello,

Because you still have the "swollen" feeling, I recommend starting off with our ColdCure wrap to help with effectively reducing the swelling and inflammation in the injured area first. Once the swelling and inflammation have gone away, it is then recommended that you start using the BFST wrap to help with stimulating the blood flow through the damaged soft tissue to help aid in the healing process. It's also recommended to limit any intense or strenuous activities while doing treatments with our products. This will help with accelerating the healing process as well. It is also recommended to get the Wrist ColdCure wrap and Wrist BFST wrap to help with targeting the injured area more effectively as the Foot wraps won't reach the ball of the foot for people with a shoe size larger than 8.5.

Thank you,
Sarah

Re: Metatarsal fat pads in the bottom of my feet are moving into my toes

Is the BFST a Tens unit inside a wrap?  If so can you tell me the strength of the unit?  Thanks!

Re: Metatarsal fat pads in the bottom of my feet are moving into my toes

The BFST wrap is unlike a TENS unit and will not cause any sort of electrical shock or vibration. The BFST wrap is designed to use an Electro-Magnetic Energy to help with penetrating deep into the damaged soft tissue to stimulate the blood flow and help accelerate the healing process. Our wrap is more closely related to the principal of Ultrasound Therapy, but is much safer to use for at-home treatments than Ultrasound.

Sarah
