How to Use
Place the gel pack into the provided pouch and keep it in the pouch when in use – only remove it when the pouch needs cleaning. Never place the gel pack directly onto the skin. Always use the provided protective pouch.
Freeze the gel pack in it’s pouch for a minimum of 60 minutes. The pack can be stored in the freezer until it is needed. The pack will quickly become flexible after being taken out of the freezer. Apply where required for a minimum of 10 minutes. Use for strains, sprains, bumps, bruises or post exercise. DO NOT use cold therapy prior to exercise.
Place the gel pack inside the pouch provided and lay flat in the microwave on a high setting for 15-20 seconds only. If the desired temperature is not met, increase the time by 5 second increments. Make sure the pouch is never over heated. If the gel pack is frozen, the heating time may need to be increased. Leave to stand for a minute and ensure the temperature is comfortable before use. Apply for 20 minutes for relaxation, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and to warm up prior to exercises.
Alternate between cold and hot packs for 10 minutes each for 3 cycles. Use for muscle tension and discomfort.
