After a soccer or track match my son use them to relax the swelling and any pain he may have on his body. He either wrap or lay the gel pack on the problem area to relieve the problem. The gel pack stays cold for anywhere from one to two hours.
I like that it's pliable. I can practically wrap it 3/4 of the way around my knee. It gets cold quickly, that's a plus. I haven't tried it "hot" yet, but I'm sure I will, and I like that I can just put it in the microwave. Thanks!
I've used the packs exclusively for cold treatment and am quite satisfied. They are flexible when frozen, allowing a close fit to the body area to be treated. They provided about twenty minutes of cold when applied to the knee joint. The packs seem well made. Once at room temperature, they are easy to wipe clean before returning to the fridge.
These gel packs are great very useful and at the exact size I need them. I already have four of them, the first ones since almost two years ago. I keep 2 of them in the freezer and 2 ready to warm them up with hot water. They keep the temperature (Cold or Hot) for at least 1/2 hour. I have tendinitis.
