How long do the packs stay cold ?
: ActiveWrap packs are designed to keep
the optimally desired cold at the foot (between 40
to 50 degrees) for over 20 mintues when applied.
This is a built in safety component of our ice
packs. The standard recommended treatment time is
15'. Ice packs claiming to stay cold for several
hours at a time are generally chemical based and
reach temperatures that can be harmful to the skin
and underlying tissue. Remember a colder pack does

We use ice cubes and an elastic wrap in the
gym…why should we use ActiveWrap?
Answer: Why did we switch from horse drawn
carriages to automobiles? Modern materials and
efficiency. Ice is often hard and sharp resulting in
discomfort when compressed against the skin. This
leads to an individual having to reduce the pressure
of wrapping the joint to tolerate a typical
treatment. The ActiveWrap allows for a snug–fit
combining maximum compression and direct cold
coverage to any painful area. ActiveWrap is easy to
apply for any age athlete and will save your

Tips for using hot and cold therapy
Dont wait for an injury to incorporate ice into your
training routine. Prevent overuse and typical
inflammatory injuries by icing down after each
workout for 15 minutes. Your cool down phase of
training is just as important as a proper warm–up.
Do not sleep with an ice pack on your body. Cold
therapy and use of ActiveWrap should be no longer

your body weight on an ice pack.
Ice during travel by keeping an ice pack or two at
the gym and a couple at home. Most gymnastic
facilities will provide freezer storage where you

mess in the car)when traveling. Best of all, it will
help prevent lost hours in the gym by assisting in
the prevention of many inflammatory injuries.
If you use the ice and cold therapy alot, it is a
good idea to give your skin a rest from time to time
to prevent any chance of skin irritation. A thin
paper towel is always good between cold and direct
