Improve your performance and recovery times with CoolXChange

After exercise it's very likely your body will be feeling a little sore and sorry for itself. This is where the CoolXChange Compression and Cooling Bandage provides assistance, offering a speedier and quicker recovery to have yourself ready for the next challenge.

Swelling, redness and increased tissue heat are all parts of a healthy response to an injury or soreness. However, when this response is excessive, the resulting ongoing pain and discomfort only prolong decreased mobility and, in severe cases, can lead to muscle weakness and atrophy. Whether you've sustained a sudden injury while playing sports or you're struggling with sporadic, ongoing or chronic pain, alleviating your most severe symptoms is a vital part of recovery.

R.I.C.E. (also sometimes referred to as P.R.I.C.E.) is a proven system for injury recovery that utilizes (protection), rest, ice, compression and elevation to get you back on your feet faster.

1. Protect

When we're hurt, we naturally tend to minimize use of the involved limb or body part. However, in some cases it may be necessary to add additional protection through the use of a splint or support brace. Immobilizing the affected area will prevent further accidental damage, which often occurs simply through everyday activities or during sleep.

2. Rest

In the initial days after an injury, rest is a crucial component of recovery. Resting, like protection, prevents further accidental damage and keeps the area as immobile as possible. You should actively rest for at least two days after an injury to allow your body's healing process to set in. 

3. Ice

Cooling an injury reduces swelling and pain by constricting blood vessels, easing your pain and discomfort more quickly. Cooling also carries the added benefit of reduced bruising. It’s important to cool the affected area regularly but not excessively.

4. Compression

Compression assists cooling by decreasing excess blood flow. Compression bandages should not be confused with braces, as these cannot be worn overnight. A compression bandage limits swelling and movement to help minimize your pain and discomfort, and should be applied firmly without cutting off blood supply completely.

5. Elevation

In order to keep fluids from accumulating at the site of the injury, you should elevate the affected body part. This lets gravity do its job naturally, providing assistance in pain and swelling reduction. There's no need to elevate the body part 24/7, it just takes about 20 - 30 minutes four times a day to get the job done.

The CoolXChange gel bandage is an innovative way to achieve both cooling and compression in just one easy step. Unlike other methods of cooling and compression, which require you to apply an elastic bandage and cool pack separately, this sports bandage does both.

Why wait?

When you need relief from pain or swelling, simply remove the bandage from its re-sealable pouch and apply.  CoolXChange doesn't require refrigeration, so there's never a delay when you need relief now. You can wear the bandage for up to two hours at a time, and can reuse it over and over.

How does it work? 

The self-cooling CoolXChange compression bandage uses proven technology to provide cooling relief without the use of menthol or medications. It effectively minimises swelling, heat and redness without the risk of ice burns or allergic reactions, and is latex free and safe for all parts of the body. Because it provides gentle cooling over time, users don’t run the risk of accidental over-use.
Keep it at home, in your sports bag or your gym locker.
