King Brand is an American company and the devices are made in the USA.

Rapid Recovery for Your Achilles Tendon Injury

Whether it's Achilles tendonitis or a partial tear, the difficulty with recovering from an Achilles problem is because it's vulnerable to chronic re-injury. This re-injury is happening every time you do an activity that involves the use of the Achilles Tendon (running, jumping, or even just walking). When you rest, you heal. When you're active, you aggravate the injury. It's a classic case of one step forward and another step back! To get past this chronic condition you need to make the steps forward (the healing) as big as possible and the steps backward (the reinjury) as small as possible. This is where these products make a huge difference. We make the forward steps bigger and the backward steps smaller and you get better faster as a result.

We have the products that you need to heal quickly, and relieve pain quickly. For faster healing, you need the BFST® Achilles Wrap. This electrically powered device stimulates the healing process deep in the injured tissue and maximizes the amount of healing your body does is a given time. You will heal more quickly with BFST treatments.

For superior pain relief and to reduce swelling, you need the ColdCure® Achilles Wrap. Not only does it relieve pain instantly and reduce swelling, but it also helps to stabilize your injury after periods of activity reducing the impact of your backwards step.

Taping your Achilles helps reduce the amount of damage your ankle takes through the day. A little bit of support and protection adds up over the course of your busy day. Taping your injury will ensure that every day you come out better than the day before.

Surgery for your Achilles Injury is rarely necessary. If you have a complete Achilles Tendon tear you may need surgery to repair it. If you are suffering from a partial tear, your body will heal naturally with the right tools. The King Brand BFST® and ColdCure® Achilles Wraps will help accelerate the healing process post-surgery.

The Ultimate Solution:

If you really want to get better, here's exactly what you need to do.

  • Do a BFST® treatment first thing every morning. Do 2 or 3 more BFST® treatments throughout the day. This will help you heal quickly.
  • Wear a ColdCure® Wrap as much as possible to relieve your pain and swelling and protect your Achilles from further damage.
  • Avoid re-straining the injury as much as possible. Using KB Support Tape can help with this. Resting your ankle is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.

Do this and your Achilles Injury can truly heal - finally.

What doesn't work? What can make the problem worse?

Unfortunately, there are hundreds of web sites discussing Achilles tendonitis on the internet and a lot of it is bad advice. There are no shortage of people recommending products and methods that can actually make your condition worse. Perhaps that has already happened to you.

Were You Given Bad Advice? - There are probably more bad treatments suggested online for Achilles Tendon injuries than most other ailments we see. In many cases you are being told to try treatments that will make your condition worse! For a rundown of dangerous and ineffective solutions to beware of, check out our Achilles Treatment Myths Page.

You can be certain though that the treatments discussed here are guaranteed to work. For full assurance these products work, see our Reviewed Technology page.

Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing

You don't have to wait. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For an Achilles Injury, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) gives your injured Achilles the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.

Blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured Achilles 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® Achilles Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Achilles Injury at a surprisingly rapid rate.

Cold Compression is Essential for Managing Pain

To minimize pain and swelling, complete a ColdCure® treatment any time your pain level increases, or if you have been active. The ColdCure® Achilles Wrap provides superior relief of the swelling and pain that comes with Achilles Tendonitis. ColdCure® Achilles Wraps use cold and compression together, because cold and compression are the two things you need to eliminate pain and swelling as quickly and effectively as possible. The application of cold compression must be uniform and complete if it's going to work the best, and this is why the ColdCure® Achilles Wrap has been custom designed to perfectly fit the back of the Ankle, to ensure that your injury receives an even distribution of cooling power.

Protect Your Achilles Between Treatments

King Brand Support Tape

When you're not doing treatments with your BFST® or ColdCure® Wrap, your injured tissue becomes vulnerable to further damage. You don't want to re-injure your already fragile tissue and make your Achilles Tendonitis worse. Apply KB Support Tape between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments to provide your Achilles Tendon with additional support and protection.

Your ankle moves a lot through the day, and when you're injured with an Achilles Tendon Injury, you feel every little movement. You can't stop and wait for your Achilles Tendonitis to go away, so let's provide some support for your ankle, without taking away your range of motion. KB Support Tape is designed to protect your tendons, ligaments and muscles and help prevent further damage as you go through your day. It does this all without restricting your range of motion.

Our skin is soft and elastic and can stretch much more than the tissue underneath. When you apply KB Support Tape to your skin, it becomes a much more rigid surface than before; serving to limit how much the skin can stretch. KB Support Tape makes your skin a source of outside support to hold your tissue in place, helping you avoid re-injury. That's why we call it armor for your injury.

You are doing something that most companies don't do and that's impressive. You do offer amazing service and suggestions! Your advisors are like I'm talking to a Doctor or a nurse. That's pretty impressive, that is. I've never experienced such competent help when I've purchased anything else, that's for sure!

KB Basics Achilles Heating Pad - An Economical Alternative to BFST

We've already discussed the limitations of heating pads to help healing. Still, some people do find that they provide symptomatic relief in the short term. Heating pads can also be quite pleasant on arthritic joints. So, if you want a high quality heating pad for your Achilles, this is a great unit at a great price.

KB Basics wrap are elasticized and fit on like a slipper so it fits most people except maybe people with really tiny ankles or really big ones! Because it is made by King Brand, while it is not a medical device, it is built by a company that specializes in medical devices so it benefits from our commitment to quality and safety that is built into our business.

KB Basics Achilles Cold Pack - An Economical Alternative to ColdCure

This little gem is our low cost alternative to the ColdCure wrap. The ColdCure wrap fully opens and straps in place with Velcro closures. By comparison, this economical wrap is made of stretchy material and it slips on like a sock without adjustable straps. It fits most feet except for really big or really small ones. Where the ColdCure has 3 replaceable gel packs that you insert into the wrap, this basics version has just one gel pack that is sewn right into the wrap. In between uses you will put the entire wrap in the freezer, no just the gel pack like you do with the ColdCure version. For the price, though, this is a super high quality and effective little wrap for your Achilles. It's not quite ColdCure quality, but it sure is good!

BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.

BFST® devices help heal soft tissue.

BFST® stimulates blood flow through the Achilles while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed Achilles 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 your Achilles to heal properly and quickly.

BFST Achilles Wrap

BFST® treatments feel great. They don't vibrate or pulse, so they're very pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight warming sensation and some people experience a slight tingling sensation from the increase in blood flow. For optimal results, do 3-4 BFST® treatments per day. You should notice a very slight warming sensation on each level. The treatments should never feel hot or uncomfortable. The effects of each 20 minute BFST treatment will last for up to four hours, it's best for you to spread your treatments out over the course of the day. The goal isn't to move up on the levels as quickly as possible, but to condition your circulation for increased blood flow. Staying on the lowest level possible where you feel warmth is the best way to speed up the healing process. An ideal treatment regimen would be one treatment first thing in the morning, another treatment in the afternoon, a treatment in the evening, and the last treatment of the day right before bed.

When your BFST® treatment is over, simply unplug the controller, remove the Achilles Wrap and enjoy the benefit of increased circulation to speed up your healing for the next four hours.

What Does the BFST Feel Like?

The BFST treatments are very comfortable and soothing. The BFST® uses Electromagnetic Energy to stimulate blood flow underneath the surface of the skin. It is warm, but not hot. It does not vibrate like a massager. (You shouldn't use a massager on soft tissue injuries) It does not cause your muscles to tense in jolts like with a TENS machine. (TENS machines are very bad for soft tissue injuries) The BFST® isn't supposed to do either of those things. Rather, it is soothing and sometimes gives you a gentle tingling sensation in the treatment area. BFST treatments are very pleasant and enjoyable.

Don't be confused, while the treatments feel gentle, they are still very powerful. Think about an X-RAY or an MRI. Even though you don't feel the energy during those procedures, a lot of energy is definitely going deep into your body. If you put your ear close to the BFST when it is on, you can actually hear it going through the cycles. It's not loud, but you can hear it if you listen. It isn't just delivering one energy level at one frequency. Just like an MRI machine, the BFST buzzes and hums and gets louder and more quiet as it goes through the treatment cycle. It sounds just like a mini-MRI machine. Over the 20 minute treatment period it goes through a treatment cycle to deliver the most energy in the most effective way. It is designed to help give you the fastest healing time possible, in the comfort of your home.

During each BFST® treatment you will only feel a mild warming sensation. If it feels hot you are using it on too high of a setting. Over time, after several treatment sessions, the treatments will feel like they are getting less and less warm. This is your body responding to the BFST® treatments by increasing your subdermal blood flow. The more BFST treatments you do, the less warmth you're going to feel. This is a good sign. Your tissue is becoming healthier. Your body is getting stronger. This means that your circulation through your injury is improving, and your injury is improving. When the feeling of warmth during a treatment is almost all gone, this is the signal that it is time to move up to the next level. People usually move up to the second level after a few weeks of treatment.

Treatment Without Drugs

Achilles Injuries can be so painful and debilitating that it causes us to rely heavily on pain killers. But honestly, pain killers are not your friend. It is understandable that you are looking for the relief from pain. Remember, though, the pain is there to stop us from hurting the area further. The pain is your body saying, "please stop doing that!" While pain killers are a welcome relief, they can be dangerous to take when you're active. Pain killers can completely block the pain signal, making you unaware of any further damage you could be doing to your Achilles Tendon. Pain killers should be restricted to times of rest.

When it comes to pain killers, some products are much more effective than others. Some can actually help your injury when used correctly and others will only make it worse. According to the National Institute of Health, our own government body tells us that Acetaminophen overdose is the leading cause for calls to Poison Control Centers (>100,000/year) and accounts for more than 56,000 emergency room visits. And acetaminophen (Tylenol) won't help you get better one bit. It only puts you at risk of more injury. If you want help choosing the right pain killer and want advice on how to use it more safely and correctly, give us a call at 1-844-672-9440. We will give you excellent guidance. No charge. No purchase necessary.

To maximize healing and minimize pain and swelling, complete a BFST® treatment right before bed. We can give you advice on medication you can take to reduce the pain and help you heal while you sleep. The BFST® treatment will work towards healing while you sleep, and the medication will work to relieve the pain and inflammation so that you can experience restful sleep. During the day, ColdCure® treatments are the best choice to continue to reduce inflammation while you are active. Our medical grade injury tape, KB Support Tape, is excellent for reducing reinjury and pain when you need to be active as well. If you're in pain, give us a call now for free advice 1-844-672-9440.

ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling

ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.

For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with an Achilles 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 or underlying tissue. ColdCure® gel packs pose no threat of cold burns or permanent tissue damage caused by freezing of the skin. This makes them much safer to use than other products that use ice. ColdCure® gel packs are completely safe to use for extended treatment durations, meaning faster relief of pain and swelling. Our ColdCure® technology is a huge improvement on regular ice packs.

The ColdCure® Achilles Wrap comes with 3 swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel® is firm yet flexible, unlike other gel formulas that are mushy and watery. This means the gel holds its form and doesn't move around to other areas of the pack. It stays in place over your injury, right where you need it. The gel won't move, even when put under heavy pressure for long periods of time. The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time so you can always have two charging in the freezer to keep your therapy going. Do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, or as long as you need the relief.

The cold ankle wrap is working really well. I sprained my ankle really badly and it's helping a lot. I'm very happy with my wrap. I wish I'd had it when I first injured myself, but it seems to be helping a lot now.

KB Support Tape - Use All Day During Work & Play

KB Support Tape provides your injury with lightweight, comfortable compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. It also prevents re-injury by providing support and protection for your injured tissue.

KB Support Tape comes in 2 different styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These 2 styles come in 3 different colors: Blue, Black & Beige. There's no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your personal style.

Achilles Tape Application

The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are perfect for people who want to use their tape on-the-go. On your Achilles, a single strip could be applied from the bottom of your foot and up the back of your leg like the large piece shown in the image. Using just that piece of tape can give pretty decent achilles support and it's easy to do. Since they're already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can apply and go! Each roll of Pre-Cut KB Support Tape contains 20 individual strips. Each Pre-Cut Strip is 2 inches wide and 10 inches long.

The Continuous Rolls of KB Support Tape are ideal for you if you're looking for a more customizable Tape solution. You can cut the Tape into a variety of different shapes and sizes to achieve a completely unique application for your Achilles Injury. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.

For the best taping support you want to put an 'X' or a 'T' right over the most painful spot. The image shown shows the long vertical piece and two cross pieces. The cross pieces shown give examples of how high up or low down your ankle you might put the cross piece. Not everyone injures their Achilles tendon in the same spot. The best taping solution for you is to put the cross piece right over the most painful spot on your ankle because that's where you're hurt and that's where you need the protection. Often you can just cut two small pieces (perhaps 5" each) from a roll and put them in a cross over the painful spot. Sometimes people take a precut strip and just cut it in half and use the two pieces to make the 'X'. As long as you are taping over the post painful spot then you're going to get the benefit. We encourage you to try different applications for your Achilles to find the one that works best for you. Also, remember to listen to what your body is telling you. Use the pain as a guide. If you feel the pain in a specific area of your ankle, apply the tape there. The first couple attempts may be a learning experience, but before long, you will be an expert at taping your Achilles.

The Medical Tape Advantage

What sets KB Support Tape apart from the rest? It's not athletic tape, it's medical tape. This means our Tape is manufactured to ISO 10993 standards, which ensures that our Tape is made from extremely safe, biocompatible materials. Our Tape is actually made from materials that are safer than most baby products, including diapers, toys and clothes. Don't let the big brand tapes fool you. Most of them are made from toxic materials, because there are no standards for athletic tape. Some big brand tape glues even contain carcinogenic ingredients. At King Brand®, your health and safety is of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape is manufactured to such high standards.

Make Your Treatments Mobile

With the BFST® Battery Pack

This Rechargeable Battery Pack is designed to make your BFST® Wrap completely mobile. It attaches anywhere on your wrap by using the Velcro patch included, and lasts 10-20 treatments, depending on what level you're on. This means you can do your treatments wherever you go! You can do treatments in the car, at work, or while you're doing chores around the house, all without being plugged in. Use it wherever the day takes you.

The BFST® Battery Pack is easily charged using the Power Supply from your Achilles BFST® Wrap. The indicator lights on the Battery let you know when it needs to be charged again. It takes approximately 4 hours to achieve a full charge when the Battery is at 0%.

The Battery Pack makes it so much simpler to get in your 3-4 BFST® treatments per day, because you don't have to wait around while you're plugged into an outlet anymore.

*The Rechargeable Battery Pack is specifically designed to work with your BFST® Achilles Wrap. Your BFST® Wrap comes with the components you need for treatments and to charge the Battery. For further information on whether a Battery Pack is suitable for your treatment schedule, please contact our Treatment Advisors by email or phone.

About two weeks ago, I injured the Achillies tendon on my right leg. For the next week I experienced a pain in that heel and foot that felt like a nail in the bottom of the heel. Being in pain, on a cane, nearly immobilized, I was looking for relief on the internet, then stumbled on a site. Besides explaining the therapy involved to heal the injury, included on the site, was info about King Brand products, including Cold Cure wraps and BFST wraps. On calling the number I spoke with an advisor (Adrienne) who was more than helpful. She was actually knowledgeable about the injury, and made recommendations. Two days later I was using these devices. The ColdCure wrap is more than an ice pack because of the gel - longer lasting, more effective. The BFST is therapy (I don't fully understand) but it works! A week into therapy and I've experienced substantial pain relief and regained 90% of my mobility. Today I received a follow-up call from King Brands (Payton), who guided me on how to proceed with therapy. I am totally satisfied with this product and impressed by the company. Thank You, Mark

Combination Therapy
Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® + KB Tape

Complete TreatmentBFST® for Rapid Healing
Relieve PainColdCure® for Pain & Swelling
Heal QuicklyKB Tape to Prevent Re-Injury

Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape throughout your treatments. Combination Therapy is much more effective than using just one product or the other. This is because you're getting the pain and swelling relief of ColdCure®, the healing benefits of BFST®, and the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Achilles Tendonitis.

Step 1: Reduce Swelling and Inflammation

A very important part of treating your Achilles Tendonitis is to use the ColdCure® Wrap to 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. You can use it several times a day. Use it anytime you want pain relief and after any significant exercise of your ankle if it doesn't hurt afterward.

You should rely more heavily on ColdCure® treatments immediately after exercise because the inflammation will continue to re-develop when you are active. Being aggressive with back to back cold treatments after exercise will give your body a chance to get ahead of the inflammation, and prepare your Achilles Tendon for the blood flow that's needed to help heal quickly.

Step 2: Heal Your Injury

Combination Therapy

Introduce your BFST® treatments at your less active times of day and before significant exercise. Keep your swelling and inflammation under control with ColdCure® but do not use ColdCure® and BFST® close together. Use BFST® in the morning, before bed, and after longer periods of resting your injury. When doing your treatments, you should only feel a slight warming sensation. At any time if it feels HOT or uncomfortable, discontinue use as you still have too much inflammation and swelling to complete a treatment.

Each BFST® Treatment will last only 20 minutes, but the increase in blood flow will last up to four hours. Ideally your treatments should be spaced out throughout the day, so you can promote good blood flow all day long. If you can't do 3-4 treatments a day, your two most important treatments are first thing in the morning, and right before you go to bed. This will ensure that you have a great start to your day and you can rest well at night.

If you are planning on being active throughout the day, complete a BFST® treatment before any type of physical activity. It can be as simple as going for a walk. Always assess how you are feeling after your activity, as there's a chance you may need to apply your ColdCure® to treat any new inflammation generated during your activities.

The goal with your BFST® Treatments is not to increase on the levels as quickly as possible, but to condition your circulatory system to allow for the much needed increased blood flow. Staying on the lowest level to where you feel any warmth - remember it's just a slight warmth - will be the most effective way to start healing your Achilles Tendonitis. When can you move up to the next level? You can move up in levels when you feel barely any warmth from the wrap at all. This means that you've successfully conditioned your circulation and you're ready to move up. Some people can move up in a few weeks, some people it takes a lot longer. It just depends on how well your body adjusts to the increase in blood flow.

Step 3: Treat Flare-Ups - Timing is Important

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. Remember, staying on top of your inflammation will allow you to complete more BFST® treatments throughout the day.

Wait 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment before doing 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, unless you notice an increase in pain during your BFST® Treatment.

ColdCure® treatments will slow down the blood flow, which isn't ideal, but sometimes necessary to relieve the swelling and inflammation generated. The BFST® will increase your blood flow which is important for faster healing.

Step 4: Use KB Support Tape

KB Support Tape is very important to help with your injury recovery. As you move throughout the day, your skin and your tendons move with you. Using the KB Support Tape over your injury will make your skin less flexible - therefore protecting your injury - without restricting your range of motion. KB Support Tape can be used at the same time as your BFST® and ColdCure® Treatments without any issues, but try to have your first BFST® treatment of the day without the KB Support Tape applied. After your BFST® treatment has been completed, then apply the tape. Removing the tape before the last BFST® treatment of the day will provide the best results.

Step 5: Complete The Healing Process

When you're recovering from Achilles Tendonitis, the pain ends long before you've finished healing. In fact, the pain is usually gone once your tissue is about 20-30% healed. The entire healing process is very complex, and takes much longer than most people realize. (You can click here for the full story on how the body heals). The key thing to remember is that long after the pain stops, your Achilles Tendon is still healing. This means you need to keep doing BFST® treatments in order to complete the healing process. Doing regular BFST® treatments for several months after the pain is gone is extremely beneficial. Do a BFST® treatment prior to any physical activity. This will act as a warm up for your circulatory system. You should also continue to use KB Support Tape to help protect your ankle from re-injury.

Everything seems to be working much better. I don't have much, if any, pain left; my motion is good... I'm really happy with the results. I'm surprised by them quite honestly, but very happy.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing

BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. Class II medical devices are designed, manufactured and tested to very high standards of quality, safety and performance. They comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards that are in place to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. Manufacturers of consumer grade products can't say the same.

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 proprietary Energy Web®, specially controlled and incredibly safe EMR energy envelops the Achilles and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, accelerating the healing process.

BFST Power Controller

BFST® Wraps come with a 3 level power controller. Everyone should start their treatments on Level 1 and work their way through the levels gradually as they heal. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up the healing process. You need to condition the body first.

During your first treatments on Level 1, your Achilles area 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 in your Achilles is improving. Better circulation means 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.

There is a huge difference between BFST® Wraps and heating pads. BFST® Wraps stimulate blood flow to the area of your injury deep below the skin. This works to heal your damaged tissue. Heating pads can't do this. All heating pads do is bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch.

The Energy Web® of the BFST® Achilles device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to conform all the way up the length of your Achilles to ensure there is an even distribution of energy over your injury. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that allow you to customize the fit. After your treatment, unplug the device from the outlet and continue wearing the wrap for support and comfort. This will also help you get rid of the inflammation more quickly.

Just wanted to thank you for making this amazing product. I have a bone spur and grade 2 torn tendon in my right ankle. Can barely walk the last two years. Tried every cream, many braces, special shoes, compress socks, canes, walker and a boot to relieve pain. Could not stand more than 10 minutes and had to take baths since I could not stand long enough for a shower. I finally got physical therapy approved after a year of doctor visits for they said just a sprain until I got a MRI. Then Covid hit. With $65 a co pay and time off work, I just couldn't afford it. Not to mention all the time going after work when It is so hard to walk. I was tired, in pain and now gained 30 pounds from no movement in 2 years. I found your product and decided to try since I tried everything else. I'm amazed I can walk! I used it 6 weeks. I now can walk 45 minutes with no pain. Ankle sometimes swells after then I use my ice wrap and I'm all better! I wish more people knew about this. I tell everyone that has any pain what a life saver and true miracle this is. Thank you!!!

ColdCure is Cold

Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief

ColdCure® Wraps are FDA Registered Class I medical devices. They exceed all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries. When applied, the ColdCure® Wrap 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.

All of our ColdCure® Wraps are entirely made of very soft, stretchy material. They come with 3 swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time, so you can have the other two charging in the freezer to keep your therapy going. Do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, or as long as you need the relief.

Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation

Many people follow the RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - formula when treating a soft tissue injury. While RICE is a popular method, the reality is that ice can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your skin and 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.

ColdCure® RigiGel® packs are much safer and more effective than ice and products that use mushy blue gel. Why? Because RigiGel® packs are like ice, but they stay at 32°F, the exact and best temperature for pain relief. While they may start at about -4°F straight from the freezer, after a few minutes they will go to 32°F and stay at 32°F for a long time. ColdCure Safe Temperature This is the ideal temperature for cold therapy, because it's cold enough to relieve your pain and swelling, but safe enough to not cause cold burns. Blue gel packs will also start out at -4°F but they slowly go to 32°F, putting you at risk of frost bite. And once generic, blue gel packs get to the ideal temperature of 32°F, they keep warming up! Their temperature will keep rising quickly, instead of staying in the safe, effective zone of 32°F. Generic gel packs are almost never at the ideal temperature whereas King Brand ColdCure products go to the perfect temperature quickly and stay there for a long time. The XC Gel® danger zone is very small, but the benefits are huge.

Not all freezers are the same so we build extra safety into the packs. If you find the gel pack too stiff from the freezer to use in the wrap, that's because it came out too cold to be safe. Leave it out for 1-2 minutes though and it's good to go! Then it will bend enough for inserting it inside the wrap. When the pack is soft enough to bend, it's ready to use for treatment. So simple and so safe!

More Gel = More Cold. XC Gel® packs contain 3x more gel by weight than ordinary gel packs. This means they cover a much larger area. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have 10x more cooling power than other products. So, you get longer treatments without having to recharge the gel packs as often. It also means faster relief of pain and swelling. Bigger gel packs with more gel inside, plus superior cooling power, ultimately means a better, more effective treatment.

Regular gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. When cold pressure is applied to an injury, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. Our XC RigiGel® packs distribute cold energy evenly throughout the entire gel pack. The 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 injury will receive a consistent cold treatment, every time. The temperature balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.

XC RigiGel® is firm yet flexible. We describe it as 'gel that bends like rubber' because even though it bends and molds to the shape of your body, it always stays in place. Unlike gooey blue gel that easily gets pushed to other areas of the wrap, our gel won't flow away from your injured spot. Even under very extreme pressure, it stays soft, but it won't budge. No matter how much pressure, the gel always stays in place over your injured spot. RigiGel conforms to the painful area for an even, consistent treatment every time.

ColdCure® Achilles gel packs are specially designed to conform to your ankle to provide your injury with an even distribution of cooling power. Every one of our ColdCure® Wraps comes with gel packs that are custom designed for the body part to ensure the best fit and treatment possible. We don't just use one generic gel pack shape. Every body part is uniquely shaped, which is why all of our gel packs are uniquely shaped too. If you want a product that is 100% designed to treat Achilles Tendonitis, you need the ColdCure® Achilles Wrap.

Achilles Coverage Zone

XC RigiGel® packs have 2 different colored sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides will give you all the same benefits that our high performance XC RigiGel® formula has to offer. The gel packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your skin and ankle or away from your skin and ankle since they are not side specific.

The illustration shows the Cold Treatment effective coverage area. The coverage wraps around the back of the achilles, and extends up equally on both the inside and the outside of the heel and ankle.

No consumer products are produced to this high standard.

IEC-60601 Guaranteed

King Brand products are, in fact, hospital grade through and through. IEC-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.
