When you are suffering from localised pain and aches, sometimes you need relief on the spot. The Nexcare™ ColdHot™ Comfort Gel Pack is a drug-free remedy which provides targeted soothing, for comfort where you need it the most.
Nexcare ColdHot Therapy products are gel-filled compresses with dual purpose: they can provide either flexible ice or comforting heat as a drug-free way to treat pain locally. The non-toxic gel is encased in a strong, reliable plastic envelope which is flexible enough to wrap around joints or mould to a particular area of the body, even when frozen. The compresses are hand washable and reusable, and are supplied with a soft fabric protective cover. A great alternative to dripping ice packs or leaky hot water bottles, they can be cooled in the fridge or freezer, or warmed up in the microwave or by placing in hot water. Nexcare ColdHot Gel Compresses can provide effective relief from the pain of sports and soft tissue injuries, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation, muscle tension, headaches, period pain, back pain and muscle stiffness or spasm.
This compress measures 26.5cm x 10cm and is the ideal size for ankles, knees, elbows and the face or head. Simply cool or warm it as per the instructions in the box, slip it into the protective cover and use the elasticated strap to secure it in place for as long as is comfortable. Please note that cold therapy should be applied for a maximum of 20 minutes, before removing the compress for another 20 minutes and then reapplying. If used for heat therapy, the compress will generally need re-warming after around 30 minutes. Customers are advised to read the enclosed instructions carefully before using this product. Nexcare ColdHot Gel Compresses are also available in a Maxi size (20cm x 30cm) for treating larger areas of the body.
