Info: Hot & Cold Therapy Gel Compression Sleeve for Knee or Elbow; in 3 Sizes

Thera Sleeve is a versatile tube-shaped non-toxic gel pack in a stretchy fabric that you can easily slip onto your arm or leg, after either heating it briefly in the microwave or cooling it in the freezer.

Product Notes:

During the acute phase of a sprain, strain or serious impact injury of your knee or elbow or the areas close to them, you may well want to apply either cooling or a little warmth as well as compression to deal with the swelling and to stimulate blood flow. But given their shapes, that can be awkward to do even with a combination of heating pads, ice packs, and elastic or compression wraps - even with conventional gel packs! - especially if you want to move around while they are on. That's what makes the

An ingenious solution, Thera Sleeve is a 10-inch long tube (at least for the Medium size) which comes in three sizes: S, M, and L, which are as little as 9 inches and up to 20 inches around, respectively. To select the size you need, simply measure the circumference of the largest area it would need to fit over -- whether that's your bicep or forearm if it's for your arm, or the top of your calf or the bottom of your thigh, if it's for the knee -- and pick the model nearest to that number (in inches).

HEAT THERAPY

• Remove sleeve from supplied bag, and heat it in a microwave, initially for just 15 seconds.
• Always test sleeve before using -- it should only be used warm, never hot.
• Sleeve may be heated longer, in increments of 10 seconds at a time, if it is not warm enough.
• Never heat TheraSleeve for more than 45 seconds in total, for a single session.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

• Do not wash, bleach, dry clean or iron
• Wipe exterior with a damp cloth, and allow it to air dry

Warnings:

Always consult your healthcare provider before using hot or cold therapy, or if your pain or discomfort persists or increases. Do not use on broken or irritated skin. People with certain pre-existing conditions should not use hot or cold therapy.

Cautions:

• It is important to monitor the sleeve while heating in microwave.
• Always test / touch the heated or cooled sleeve before putting it on to make sure it is not too hot or too cold.
• Discontinue use if the sleeve causes discomfort.
• After heating, let sleeve cool before storing it in the supplied bag.
• The sleeve absorbs water, so air dry it completely before storing.
• Check the inside of sleeve for ice crystals before applying cold therapy. Do not use if you see ice crystals.
• If the gel comes into contact with skin, wash with soap and water.
