One Super Important Fact:


One Super Important Fact

Bands and braces that stretch the Iliotibial Band are not going to help heal the injury. You will only find temporary relief. If you're suffering from Iliotibial Band Syndrome and you want quick relief, you need BFST® and ColdCure® Wraps.

Rapid Recovery For ITBS


Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS) is an overuse injury most often affecting runners and other athletes. If your ITBS is severe enough, it can force you to take time off from physical activity due to pain and immobility. We know you don't want ITBS to rule your life. We know you want to be able to get back to your usual routine. If you really want to get rid of the pain and heal your ITBS, don't use foam rollers - this will only make your ITBS worse. You need something that actually works. You need our BFST® and ColdCure® 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 IT Band from further damage.
  • Avoid re-straining your IT Band as much as possible. KB Tape will help with this. Resting your IT Band is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
  • Do this and your IT Band 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 ITBS, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) gives your IT Band the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.


    BFST® Wraps bring oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area - a requirement for the IT Band to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured IT Band 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® IT Band Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your injured IT Band while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Iliotibial Band Syndrome 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. ColdCure® Wraps provide superior relief of the swelling and pain that comes with Iliotibial Band Syndrome. ColdCure® 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 ColdCure® Wraps have been custom designed to perfectly fit your leg, knee or hip -- where ever you are feeling the pain.

    Protect Your IT Band Between Treatments


    With Iliotibial Band Syndrome the feeling of pain and tightness can be felt with the slightest movements. This tightness often leads to frequent re-injury. You can't stop and wait for your Iliotibial Band Syndrome to go away, so lets provide some support to your painful areas, without taking away your range of motion. KB Support Tape is designed to protect your tendons, ligaments and muscles and to help prevent further damage as you go through your day. It does all of this without restricting your range of motion.


    Professional athletes always tape their injuries. You see it all the time. They know the benefits and they do what they need to, to heal as quickly as possible. KB Support Tape provides safe, high grade, optimal armor for your injury. It is made from the highest quality, hospital grade, biocompatible materials which most sports tapes are not. KB Tape is 100% KB Quality.

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

    BFST® devices heal soft tissue.

    King Brand Blood Flow Stimulation

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


    The BFST® Wrap is a diathermic device that stimulates blood flow deep within the soft tissue, providing nutrient-rich, optimized blood flow to your Iliotibial Band Syndrome. 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 overall 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 tissue. This means that each BFST® treatment should feel like a very light warmth through the duration of the treatment. We're keeping the blood flow deep within. 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.


    King Brand Knee BFST Wrap

    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. At King Brand® we are confident that we can treat soft tissue injuries and always stand behind our Money Back Guarantee. Don't believe us? Try the BFST® Leg Wrap today, and let us know!


    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 IT Band as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. The effects last up to 4 hours, so we recommend that you spread your treatments out throughout the day. That way you'll be receiving optimal blood flow all day long. 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.


    King Brand Knee BFST Wrap

    Almost as important as blood flow is the reminder of the injury. Without the reminder, you risk feeling a false sense of ability that could cause you to overdo it and make your ITBS worse. The reminder is what will help you move with care so you don't aggravate your IT Band further. That's why we recommend wearing the BFST® Wrap between treatments. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the wrap and gently tighten the straps. This will provide your IT Band with light support and protection, as well as act as a reminder of your injury.

    Treatment Without Drugs

    Iliotibial Band Syndrome 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 injury. 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.

    I love the products, I've bought many of them for many of my family members and they're great.

    The Treatment Process


    To relieve your symptoms and heal your Iliotibial Band Syndrome as quickly as possible, use the ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps. ColdCure® treatments should be done any time you are overly active, or if you feel like you're developing inflammation. If you're developing inflammation you are most likely going to feel an increase in pain. Use ColdCure® Wraps for pain management.


    During less active times of the day, start using the BFST® Wrap. BFST® treatments will work to actively heal your damaged Iliotibial Band by promoting blood flow to the area of your injury. Treatments are simple and easy: plug the device in, turn it on, and rest. Treatments are 20 minutes and the effects last for up to 4 hours, which means that you'll be receiving optimum blood flow for 4 hours after your treatment ends. For best results, do 3-4 treatments per day.


    Apply KB Support Tape to help support where you are feeling pain, and any time your Iliotibial Band needs extra support and protection. KB Support Tape provides lightweight, comfortable compression throughout the day without restricting your range of motion.

    ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.

    ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.

    For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with Iliotibial Band Syndrome, nothing works better than cold and compression.


    The ColdCure® Knee, Back and Leg Wraps are made entirely of very stretchy material. They wrap around the injured area and apply a very gentle pressure over your IT Band. The wrap comes with swappable cold packs of a very special design. They are soft and flexible and mold perfectly to the injured area, yet the gel inside them won't move out of place. Each ColdCure® Wrap comes with 3 gel packs. You use them 1 at a time, keeping the other 2 in the freezer so you can keep swapping them out as many times as you like. We recommend that you do your ColdCure® treatments after activity or whenever you are feeling an increase in pain. There's no need to take a break in between treatments, if you are still dealing with pain, swap out the gel pack for a fresh one from your freezer.


    ColdCure® technology was developed specifically to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin and 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.


    Our XC Gel® packs are flexible at any temperature, so they conform to your body even when they're straight from the freezer. This means you always get an even, consistent treatment. Unlike gels that are mushy and watery, our gel is firm enough to stay in place, but soft enough to mold comfortably to your injury.

    KB Support Tape - Use All Day During Work & Play

You can wear it during all of your daily activities and it won't get in the way or restrict your movement. KB Wide Support Tape is water resistant, so you can get it wet and it won't come off. Just pat it dry and continue with your daily activities.


    KB Support Tape is available in 2 different sizes: 2 inches wide and 3 inches wide. For treating the most stubborn Iliotibial Band Syndrome, we recommend the 3 inch wide Tape for Iliotibial Band Syndrome. The 3 inch tape comes in both Beige and Black. There is no functional difference between the colors; they just allow you to express your personal style.



    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.


    The 3 inch Wide Tape is ideal for customizing the Tape to your Iliotibial Band Syndrome area. You can cut the Tape into a variety of lengths and sizes to achieve a completely unique application for your Iliotibial Band Syndrome. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that's 3 inches wide and 16 feet long.

    IT Band Application

    The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are ideal for people who want to use their tape on-the-go. Since they're already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can apply and go!

You can cut the Tape into a variety of different shapes and sizes to achieve a completely unique application for your injury. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.


    While we found the above application to be effective for IT Band Syndrome pain found in the knee, it's only an example. We encourage you to try different applications for IT Band Syndrome 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 IT Band, apply the tape there. KB Support Tape works best when it is covering your painful areas, to help provide much needed support and protection.

    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 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 athletic 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.

    It works wonderfully well! I'm very well satisfied.

    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 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®, and the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Iliotibial Band Syndrome.


    Step 1: Reduce Swelling and Inflammation


    A very important part of treating your Iliotibial Band Syndrome is to use your 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 leg or knee, 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 Iliotibial Band 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 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 Iliotibial Band. 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


    Combination Therapy

    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


    Complete the Healing Process

    Even once the pain is gone, your Iliotibial Band may only be 20% or 30% healed. The healing process takes much longer than most people realize. (You can click here for the full story.) If you want your Iliotibial Band to heal completely, you need to continue doing BFST® treatments for several months after the pain is gone. Do a BFST® treatment before you do any physical activity. This will act as a warm up for your circulatory system. You should also continue taping your Iliotibial Band to help prevent re-injury.

    Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing





    BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. BFST® Wraps are designed, tested and manufactured to ensure the best quality and performance possible. They comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards that are in place to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. BFST® Wraps meet extremely high standards when it comes to quality, safety and efficacy. The same can't be said for non-FDA Registered consumer grade products.


    The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in the 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 the damaged IT Band and stimulate 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 at Level 1 and work their way through the levels gradually as their IT Band heals. 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 IT Band 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 IT Band 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 doesn't mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.


    BFST® Wraps are better than heating pads in every way. BFST® treatments work to actively heal your tissue damage by improving your blood circulation. Heating pads can't do this. BFST® Wraps penetrate deep down to the soft tissue to create an ideal environment for healing. All heating pads do is bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. This does nothing to heal the damaged tissue deep below your skin. The difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad is huge.


    BFST IT Band Treatment Areas

    The Energy Web® of the BFST® device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the IT Band to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire injured area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that allow you to find the right fit for your body. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed. The straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for your IT Band. The device easily disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so you are free to move around your home when not receiving treatment, while still wearing the wrap for support and comfort.

    One of the reasons I did purchase this cause I'm really big on reviews and it got really big reviews but everybody raves about your customer service and I'm witnessing that first hand right now.

    Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief



    The King Brand® ColdCure® 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 IT Band immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing the long term, permanent damage that can come with soft tissue injuries such as ITBS. The ColdCure® Wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries.


    ColdCure Safe Temperature

    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.


    Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation

    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 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.


    ColdCure® gel packs contain 3x more gel per lb than other packs, for maximum coverage of your IT Band. When stored in the freezer, our XC® gel packs have 10x more cooling power per lb than standard gel packs. This means they stay cold longer so you won't have to swap the gels as often. It 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.


    IT Band Coverage Zones

    ColdCure® gel packs are specially designed for the shape of the body part you're targeting. Whether your IT Band injury is located closer to your knee, thigh or hip, the gel pack will conform to your body to ensure that your entire injury receives an even distribution of cooling power. We don't just use one generic gel pack for all of our wraps. Each body part is shaped differently, which is why all of our gel packs are shaped differently too. These devices are 100% designed to treat Iliotibial Band Syndrome.


    Unique XC RigiGel® Formula


    Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® formula helps to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the gel pack. When cold pressure is applied to an IT Band 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.


    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 IT Band or away from your IT Band 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.


    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.
