Advanced Ankle Injury Treatment
Rapid Recovery Treatment For Severe Ankle Injuries
You don't have to suffer. You don't have to wait.
You can reduce the pain and swelling.
You can heal quickly.
You simply need the right treatment.
One Super Important Fact:
Once injured, Ankle Injuries are prone to frequent re-injury. This is because many people don't take the time required to rest and heal properly. For a much faster healing time, try to keep the weight off your injured ankle as much as possible.
Heal Your Ankle Injury
Ankle Injuries are one of the most persistent conditions many people are faced with. Whether it's due to a sudden trauma or the result of repetitive strain, once damaged, doing your regular activities can be challenging due to pain and reduced mobility. While a break in activity will help your ankle heal, you need something more proactive if you want to heal in weeks instead of months. We know you want to speed up your recovery as much as possible so you can get back to your usual routine. That's why we designed the BFST® and ColdCure® Achilles Wraps.
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 Ankle from further damage.
Avoid re-straining your Ankle as much as possible. Using KB Support Tape® will help with this. Resting your Ankle is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your Ankle Injury can truly heal - finally.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You can heal your Ankle Injury. All you need is the right treatment. You don't have to wait for months on end to feel better. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For an Ankle Injury, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. To heal quickly you need an increase in blood flow and rest. Stop suffering for weeks with pain, without any improvement. BFST® treatments gives your damaged ankle the blood flow it needs to heal properly.
BFST® is an easy to use plug-in medical device that brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your ankle injury. The BFST® is a plug in medical device that works to heal your Ankle Injury with each treatment. Incrasing blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissue and is required in order to help your body heal completely from an Ankle Injury. Unfortunately, an injured Ankle at rest usually has very limited blood flow. While physical activity promotes blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a worsened condition. With a BFST® Achilles Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your damaged Ankle while you're at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Ankle Injury at a surprisingly rapid rate.
Cold Compression is Essential for Managing Pain
To minimize pain and swelling in your ankle, 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 Ankle Injuries. 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. Don't let the pain of your Ankle Injury control you. Don't count the hours between pain relieving devices. If your ankle hurts, just apply the ColdCure® Achilles Wrap. 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 your ankle, and to perfectly target the pain of your Ankle Injury.

BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
The BFST® Achilles Wrap stimulates blood flow through your Ankle while you are at rest. This is very important because, while at rest, an unaided and inflamed Ankle can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the healthy, high-quality blood that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for your Ankle Injury to heal quickly and completely.
The BFST® Achilles Wrap is a diathermic device that stimulates blood flow deep within the soft tissue, providing nutrient-rich, optimized blood flow directly to your Ankle Injury. Diathermy is well-recognized and accepted by the medical community as an effective means of promoting sub-dermal blood flow in order to speed up healing and recovery times. Remember, all King Brand® wraps are Class II Registered FDA Medical Devices.
The BFST® is NOT a typical heating pad. Heating pads bring blood to the surface of your skin and make it hot to the touch. BFST® Wraps stimulate blood flow deep beneath your skin to repair your damaged Ankle Injury. Bringing blood to the surface of your skin does nothing to heal the injury deep below. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your soft tissue injury through promotion of blood flow. Ordinary heating pads can't do this.
Medical Device credibility is important. At King Brand® we've taken the time to make sure that all of our BFST® products perform the way we claim they will. We've taken the time to make sure that they're the safest Medical Device on the market, and provided peace of mind with our Treatment Advisors being available to support you through your entire treatment process. We are confident that we can treat soft tissue injuries and always stand behind our Money Back Guarantee.
BFST® treatments feel great. They're incredibly pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in the affected ankle as the BFST® starts promoting additional blood flow. Since the effects of each 20 minute BFST® treatment last for up to 4 hours, it's best to spread your treatments out throughout the day. For optimal blood flow, do 3-4 treatments per day. Since you'll be at rest during treatments, they're a great time to catch up on activities such as reading, watching TV and surfing the internet.
Almost as important as the promotion of blood flow is the reminder of your injury. This is what helps you move with care so you don't re-injure your Ankle, making your condition even worse. Avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. That's why the BFST® Achilles Wrap is designed to be worn between treatments. After a treatment, simply unplug the device from the controller and tighten the wrap to your ankle. This will provide your damaged Ankle with light support and protection, while also acting as a reminder of your injury.

If there's pain, apply your ColdCure® Wrap!
Dealing With Pain - Consult with us for Free!
Ankle 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 ankle. 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 1-844-400-2525. 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 1-844-400-2525.
The cold ankle wrap is working really well. I sprained my ankle really badly so that's helping a lot. I'm pretty happy with my wrap. I wish I'd had it when I first did it, but it seems to be helping a lot.

ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain that comes with an Ankle Injury, nothing works better than our cold compression wrap. For cold compression to be effecive, you simply need a uniform and complete application each time you need it.
ColdCure® Wraps were designed to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin or underlying tissue. Our gel packs pose no threat of cold burns. This makes them much safer to use than other products that use ice, which can cause the skin to freeze, leading to permanent damage. 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 3swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel®holds its form and doesn't migrate to other areas of the wrap, meaning it always stays in place to treat your Ankle Injury. Unlike gooey blue gel, our gel formula won't move. Not 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 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.
KB Support Tape provides lightweight, comfortable compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. It also helps to prevent re-injury by giving your healing tissue targeted support and protection without restricting your range of motion.
KB Support Tapecomes in 2 different styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These styles also come in 3 colors: Blue, Black & Beige. There's no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your individual style.
The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are fast, easy and convenient. Since they already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can just apply and go! Every 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 perfect if you're looking for a more customizable tape. You can cut the Tape into a variety of different shapes and sizes to achieve a completely unique application for your Ankle Injury. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.
Every injury is different, and the pain felt from injury differs from one person to another. For the most effective application of KB Support Tape, you want to cover the areas where you feel pain. This will help to stabilize and support your Ankle Injury and help to facilitate normal movement with very little risk of re-injury. You may need to modify the placement of the tape to get the best results for your Ankle Injury.
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!!!
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 safer materials than most baby products, including diapers, toys and clothing. 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 are of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape is manufactured to such high standards.
The Accessory Strap can provide a more customized fit for the BFST® and ColdCure® Wraps. The strap provides up to 11+ inches of extension so you can use as much or as little extension as you need.
We all come in different shapes and sizes and this strap will allow you to increase the size of your Wrap to achieve the best possible fit and treatment. Just attach one end of the Accessory Strap to the side of the wrap that has the Velcro patch, and wrap it around until it meets the BFST® or ColdCure® Wrap on the other side. Adjust to your desired fit.
Track Your Symptoms and Treatments
Do you want to find out how well you are recovering from your Ankle Injury? Track your Symptoms and Treatments using our Symptom Tracker. This easy to use tool provides a method for you to log lots of information about what you're experiencing, how you are managing your condition, and how your life is impacting your condition. Our specialists can review the information and provide you valuable feedback on a routine to minimize reinjury and shorten your recover time.
Think about all the times you've wished you had asked your doctor or therapist about something you forgot to mention. When you see them they rush you and you're back out the door quickly and you're kicking yourself for not getting your questions answered. Have questions? At any time you can request a King Brand Trained Treatment Advisor to reach out to you to answer any questions you might have about your treatments, recovery, symptoms and much more. You can record all the notes and information you want in symptom tracker so the specialist always has all the information possible to give you the best advice. This is much better care than you get with the usual medical network. All this is free as a King Brand customer.
Each BFST® Treatment is only 20 minutes long, but if you're busy, you will find that you're skipping BFST® treatments. It happens - life just gets in the way! In order to keep that good blood flow moving all day long 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 can be used between 10-15 treatments, depending on what level you're on. That's several days of use on just one charge! This means you can do your treatments wherever you go!, all without being plugged in. Use it wherever the day takes you.
The Battery Pack is easily charged using your BFST® power supply. The indicator lights on the Battery let you know when it needs to be charged again. There's a lot of power in there so it takes 4+ hours to achieve a full charge when the Battery is nearly at 0. But from one full charge you'll get a lot of use!
The Rechargeable Battery Pack is specifically designed to work with your BFST® Ankle Wrap. Your BFST® Wrap comes with the components you need for treatments and to charge the Battery. For Airline travel the Battery Pack must travel in your carry-on or in the main cabin, not in checked luggage. Of course, you can use your BFST while you're on the plane!
Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® + KB Tape
BFST® for Rapid Healing ColdCure® for Pain & Swelling KB Tape to Prevent Re-Injury
Combination Therapy means combining ColdCure® and BFST® by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape between 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®, as well as the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Ankle Injury.
Step 1: Reduce Swelling and Inflammation
A very important part of treating your ankle injury 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 even 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 ankle for the blood flow that's needed to help heal quickly.
Step 2: Heal Your Injury
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 doing housework. 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 ankle injury. 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 an Ankle Injury, 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). The key thing to remember is that long after the pain stops, your ankle 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 the affected area from re-injury.
I'm satisfied with the product. It's really helped me a lot. I recommended it to my granddaughter and purchased two items for her ankle. I'm really pleased with it. It works.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. BFST® Wraps are designed, manufactured and tested to very high standards of quality, safety and performance. They comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards put forth by the FDA to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments.
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, low levels of EMR energy envelop your Ankle Injury, stimulating blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your injury, accelerating the healing process.
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 your healing time. You need to condition the body first.
During your first treatments on Level 1, the area surrounding your Ankle Injury 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 ankle 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.
When it comes to therapeutic benefits, BFST® Wraps are far superior to heating pads. BFST® Wraps work to heal your injury by bringing additional blood flow to the damaged tissues, deep below the skin. All heating pads do is bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. This doesn't do anything to heal the injury. There is a huge difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Achilles device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the top of your foot and sides of your ankle to ensure there is an even distribution of energy over your Tibialis Anterior Tendon. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that allow you to adjust the fit. When your treatment ends, you don't need to remove the wrap. Keep wearing it to provide your injured ankle with snug support and protection.
I'm a firm believer in your product, definitely.

Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
ColdCure® Wraps are FDA Registered Class I medical devices. Cold and compression applied to an Ankle Injury 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.
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 / 0°C. While they may start at about -4°F / -20°C straight from the freezer, after a few minutes they will go to 32°F / 0°C and stay at 32°F / 0°C for a long time. This is the ideal temperature for cold therapy, because it's cold enough to effectively relieve your pain and swelling, but safe enough to not cause cold burns. Ice and blue gel packs will also start out at -4°F / -20°C and rapidly go to 32°F / 0°C, but then their temperature will keep rising quickly, instead of staying in the safe, effective zone of 32°F / 0°C.
While XC Gel® packs are designed to be stored in the freezer, you can store them in the fridge if you find them too cold from the freezer. Not all freezers are the same. If you find that the gel is too stiff from the freezer, leave it out for 1-2 minutes before inserting it inside the wrap. When the pack is soft enough to bend, it's ready to use for treatment.
Many people follow the RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - method when treating a soft tissue injury. Most of these people probably aren't aware of the serious dangers that ice can pose. Ice can 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.
XC Gel® packs contain 10x more gel per lb than other products, for complete coverage of your Ankle Injury. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have 3x more cooling power than other products, meaning longer treatment times without having to swap the gel packs as often. This also means faster relief of your pain and swelling. Bigger packs with more gel inside plus superior cooling power equals an overall better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Ankle gel packs are specially designed for the shape of your ankle. This will ensure that your Ankle Injury receives an even distribution of cooling power. We don't just use one generic gel pack will all of our wraps. All of our gel packs are custom designed for a specific body part. Each and every part of the body is uniquely shaped, which is why every one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too. This product has 100% been designed to treat Ankle Injuries.
Unique XC RigiGel® Formula
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® packs help to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to an injured ankle, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. The cold energy is transferred from the cold spots to the warm spots much more effectively. This is a valuable improvement as your hot, swollen ankle will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack. The temperature-balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.
XC Gel® 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® has to offer. XC Gel® packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your ankle or away from your ankle since they're 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.
