One Super Important Fact:
Your Meniscus is living tissue that can heal. Meniscus "Repair" Surgery should be a last resort. This procedure almost always involves cutting away torn sections of the Meniscus. Very seldom does Meniscus "Repair" Surgery actually repair or stitch your Meniscus back together. Avoid invasive surgery and heal your Meniscus Injury with the King Brand® ColdCure® & BFST® Knee Wraps.
How to Heal Your Meniscus Injury
If you want to heal your Meniscus injury quickly and effectively, our ColdCure® and BFST® Knee Wraps are the ultimate treatment solution. Start with ColdCure® treatments first to relieve your pain and swelling. Do ColdCure® treatments until your inflammation and swelling is gone, then start using the BFST® Wrap to stimulate blood flow. Stimulating blood flow in the Meniscus will work to bring high quality blood flow to your injured tissue. This nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood will help heal your damaged Meniscus and will speed up your healing time significantly.
If you have to undergo surgery to repair your Meniscus, ColdCure® and BFST® products are ideal to use for post-surgery recovery. Use the ColdCure® Knee Wrap for the first few days immediately following surgery, or until the swelling and inflammation is gone. Start doing BFST® treatments once the swelling and inflammation subsides. The BFST® Knee Wrap stimulates blood flow in the area of injury to speed up the healing process.
It's important to understand that you need to rest in order to heal your Meniscus. Stop doing the activity that caused your Meniscus injury and avoid any other activties that could result in re-injury. Try to rest your knee as much as possible. Using crutches during recovery will help prevent any further injury to your Meniscus.
The Ultimate Solution:
If you Really want to get better, here's Exactly what you need to do.
- Wear a ColdCure® Wrap as much as possible to relieve your pain and swelling and protect your Meniscus from further damage.
- Do a BFST® treatment first thing every morning. Do 2 or 3 more BFST® treatments throughout the day. This will help you heal quickly.
- Avoid re-straining the injury as much as possible. Giving your knee a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your Meniscus Injury can truly heal - Finally.
Blood Flow is Essential for Healing
You don't have to wait for endless months in pain. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For a Meniscus injury, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) gives your knee the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.
Enhanced blood flow brings extra oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured knee at rest often has restricted blood flow, which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. Physical activity will promote blood flow but all too often it also results in small but frequent re-injury, which extends your healing time and greatly increases the amount of scar tissue that develops. With a King Brand® BFST® Knee Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your Meniscus while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Meniscus injury at a surprisingly rapid rate.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices are NOT heating pads.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through your entire knee while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed Meniscus can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for the Meniscus tissue to heal properly and quickly.
The BFST® device is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on and sit back and relax. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their knee as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. The effects last up to 4 hours, which means long after your 20 minute treatment is over, the blood keeps flowing and your Meniscus keeps healing. The more you do it, the longer it lasts and the healthier your knee gets.
The promotion of blood flow has obvious benefits. The reminder of the injury is incredibly important too, because avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. The BFST® Knee Wrap is designed to be worn even when turned off, to help protect your knee from re-injury, and this goes a long way towards shortening the recovery time. Patients enjoy the support and cushioning BFST® wraps provide and appreciate that they are healing - patients like wearing them, they know its helping them heal. This positive attitude further contributes to an overall positive recovery plan.
Don't Just Treat the Pain - Heal the Problem Forever
Professional athletes are the best example of how quickly people can really recover from Meniscus injuries. When a professional athlete tears their Meniscus, they have explicit instructions to stay off their injured knee - no physical activity, no weight on the leg, crutches - they are ordered to rest the knee completely. Injured professional athletes are also attended to by professional athletic therapists. These pro therapists have always been assigned to the athlete to ensure they supplement the healing process, to stimulate blood flow many times each day. Regular BFST® treatments are a standard part of that therapy because the more we promote blood flow, the faster we will heal. That's why professional athletes are back in the game in days while regular patients with the same injuries often take weeks or even months to heal. With the addition of BFST®, pro athletes and others who use it are recovering from their aggravated Meniscus injuries faster than ever.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with a Meniscus injury, nothing works better than cold compression.
ColdCure® technology was developed specifically to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin and underlying tissue. As a result, ColdCure® therapy can be applied for extended periods of time, providing superior relief from the swelling and pain that comes with a Meniscus injury. While King Brand® makes ColdCure® devices for all parts of the body, there's no better version than the ColdCure® Meniscus wrap. Put it on and you will instantly feel relief and relaxation as it draws the pain and tension out of your knee. You can walk with it on and it feels wonderful the entire time you are wearing it.
The ColdCure® Knee Wrap is made entirely of very stretchy material. It wraps around your knee and applies a very gentle pressure over your entire patella area. The wrap comes with swappable cold packs of a very special design. They are soft and flexible and mold to the shape of your knee, yet the gel inside them won't squeeze out of place.
Each ColdCure® Knee Wrap comes with 3 large gel packs. You use them 1 at a time, keeping the other 2 in the fridge so you can keep swapping them out as many times as you like. There's no need to take a break between treatments. You can keep using them as long as you want the pain relief.
Painkillers are Dangerous
Painkillers mask the pain. Without fail this causes people to overstress and re-injure their Meniscus. This only makes things worse. It is understandable that people need relief from the pain, so if you have to take painkillers, try to restrict them to times when you are off your feet. You can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
The ColdCure® Knee Wrap from King Brand® is specifically designed for treating Meniscus injuries. It does a superior job of relieving pain and swelling. This innovative wrap is incredibly soothing and protects your knee from further injury. The painkilling element is actually incredibly powerful and it works instantly - there's no 20 minute wait like with pills.
Meniscus Injuries are extremely painful and debilitating. NSAIDs such as ASA, acetaminophen or ibuprofen are often used to treat the pain, but these drugs do nothing to treat the actual condition. In fact, NSAIDs are known blood thinners and make the bleeding worse for fresh tissue injuries. Typical pain medications acutally interfere with the healing process. Cortisone injections are used in extreme cases but these too are intended to address the pain. They do not promote healing of the injury and they put you at a very high risk of further injury.
Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® Treatments
Relieve Pain & Suffering
Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating treatments. Combination Therapy is much more effective than using just ColdCure® or just BFST®. This is because you're getting both the pain and swelling relief of ColdCure® and the healing benefits of BFST® resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Meniscus injury.
Use the ColdCure® wrap for at least 2 straight days before using the BFST® wrap. This will help reduce not only the visible swelling you may see on the surface, but also the inflammation you may have and cannot see, deep down in the soft tissue.
Avoid using the BFST® wrap until your inflammation and swelling has subsided. Start your BFST® treatments on Level 1. For maximum benefit, please take into consideration that each 20 minute treatment optimizes your blood circulation for an average of 4 hours. We recommend 3-4 treatments daily, spread throughout the day. During the day, do a BFST® treatment every 4 hours or before any type of physical activity. This can include anything that puts a strain on the injured area (walking, standing for extended periods, etc). This can also be used for preventative measures after a full recovery to optimize your blood flow.
Do a ColdCure® treatment any time you experience a pain flare-up or after any physical activity to prevent further injury and reduce swelling and inflammation. 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment, follow with another BFST® treatment. This time will allow the blood flow and body temperature to regulate again. Refrain from using ColdCure® within the 4 hours following your 20 minute BFST® treatment. This will counteract the treatment. If necessary, use the ColdCure® wrap for pain control, then follow up with another BFST® treatment.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
The BFST® Knee Wrap is an FDA Registered Class II medical device. Class II devices are serious medical devices with very high standards of quality, performance, and safety. Class II medical devices have hundreds of pages of regulations and standards to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. This is a medical device, not a 'consumer good', but it is available to the public to buy and use at home.
The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our patented Energy Web®, specially controlled EMR energy envelops your injured knee and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath your skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, accelerating the healing process.
BFST® Wraps have 3 different power settings so you can continue to increase the power of your treatments as your Meniscus heals. During your first treatment, your knee will feel quite warm. This is because at first, your circulation is poor. The more treatments you do, the less warming sensation you will feel. This is good. As the warmth lessens from treatment to treatment, this is an indication that the circulation is your knee is improving. Better circulation means more blood flow all the time, not just during treatments. This is the goal. When you feel very little warmth during a treatment, it is time to move up to the next power level. Don't rush it though, more heat does not mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.
This is not a heating pad. Heating pads only heat the surface of the skin. Heating the surface of the skin does nothing to heal the damaged tissue below the dermal layer. BFST® penetrates deep below the skin to stimulate blood flow in the area of injury, creating an ideal environment for healing. The difference is significant.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Knee Wrap is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold to the shape of your knee to ensure there is an even distribution of energy over the injured area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that ensure a perfect fit. After treatment the straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for your knee. The device disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so you are free to move around your home when not receiving treatments.
Complete the Healing Process
It's important to understand that the healing process takes much longer than most people realize. After 4-6 weeks of treatment your pain may be gone, but that doesn't mean you're healed. Even if your pain is 100% gone, you may only be 20% or 30% healed. This is why you need to continue using the BFST® Knee Wrap for months after the pain is gone. Regular BFST® treatments will help your tissue get stronger and will protect your knee from re-injury. If you want to maintain the healing you've done and get your tissue back to full strength, make sure you do a BFST® treatment before any physical activity.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
The King Brand® ColdCure® Knee Wrap is an FDA Registered Class I medical device. This medical grade cold compression wrap is designed for home use. Cold and compression applied to an injured Meniscus immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage resulting from soft tissue injuries. The ColdCure® Wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury. The truth is that temperatures below freezing can be too cold to effectively relieve pain and swelling. And these temperatures can also be dangerous. Ice (and other freezer based substitutes such as the blue ice pack) can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue. The proper solution is RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression & Elevation. We don't want to apply ice, we want to apply cold that is just above freezing. Yes, you want cold - and lots of it - but not so cold that it is below the freezing point of water.
While we recommend that you start by using them at refrigerator temperatures, you can store the XC RigiGel® packs in the freezer and use them as freezer packs. Even at the coldest freezer temperatures they retain all their flexibility and firmness. In terms of flex and form they feel exactly the same at room temperature as they do from the freezer.
Each ColdCure® Knee Wrap comes with 3 large gel packs that contain 10x more cooling power than other packs, for maximum coverage of your Meniscus. When stored in the freezer, our XC® gel packs have 3x more gel per lb than standard gel packs. This means they stay cold longer so you won't have to swap the gels as often. Longer treatment times and more cold power means better control of swelling and less handling of your sore knee. This all results in an overall colder and more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Knee gel packs are enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the knee. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps - the knee is shaped very differently from any other body part and each body part deserves a custom designed pack if it's going to work the best. No other wrap in the world has specifically designed cold packs for each and every part of the body. The wrap molds the cold pack around your entire knee to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power over your injured Meniscus. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a Meniscus Injury treatment device.
Unique XCRigiGel® Formula
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® formula distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the gel pack. When cold pressure is applied to a Meniscus injury, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. The cold energy in our gel packs is transferred from the cold spots to the warm spots much more effectively. This is a valuable improvement as your hot, swollen injury will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack. The temperature balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.
The gel pack has 2 different coloured sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides will give you all the same benefits that our high performance XC RigiGel® has to offer. The gel pack can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your knee or away from your knee since the gel packs are not side specific.

The King Brand® products shown are FDA Registered medical devices. That is not all. They are also registered with Health Canada which means they get twice as much review.
FDA and Health Canada Registration does not mean that we fill out a form to become Registered. Our claims are quite significant, and because of these claims the government agencies visit for week-long inspections to ensure that the end user is always receiving the safest effective medical devices we can offer. With two different countries of regulators this means our products get twice the oversight, ensuring exceptional quality and performance.
It is not required but we are also ISO-13485 compliant and registered. This enforces standards are established by the International Standards Organization for global manufacturers of medical devices. This means more on-site week long audits every year ensuring our quality and products meet strict international standards.
It is not required by any regulator, but we use only the safest materials in our products. ISO-10993 regulation ensures that our products are made from higher quality materials than most baby products, including diapers. This is the highest bio-compatibility safety standard in the world. This is the highest hospital grade - think Intensive Care and Operating Rooms. Our materials go through ISO-10993 testing to ensure they are safe for you. No consumer products are produced to this high standard.
King Brand products are, in fact, hospital grade through and through. ISO-60601 is the International Standard for Medical Device safety from an electrical standpoint. In spite of the BFST® being an electrical device, BFST® can be used in hospital emergency rooms and operating rooms without affecting other equipment. You can use any medical device with a BFST® and neither device will know the other one is there. This is a very tough standard to meet, but we do it and you benefit.
King Brand products meet over 20 different safety and quality standards that are not required even for medical devices and FDA registration. If we think there is anything that can be done to make our products safer and more effective, we have done it. That is the approach to everything we do and that is why our company and products are so highly regarded.
