Keep moving with Physicool: rapid cooling and pain relief for your knees

The Physicool Cooling Knee Support is a solution for easing knee pain and swelling caused by surgeries, sports injuries, and other knee-related issues. Ready for immediate use straight from the pack, this knee support provides effective cooling without the need for refrigeration. The product uses rapid evaporation to extract heat from the joints and muscles, significantly reducing pain and swelling and accelerating the healing process.

Designed particularly for knee ailments, the Cooling Knee Support delivers not only instant cooling but also constant compression and support upon application. This double action drives quicker relief and aids in faster recovery, allowing users to continue with their daily activities with little interruption. The knee support provides a snug fit, with 360-degree contact around the knee for optimal cooling effect.

Physicool's clinically proven method is preferred over traditional ice packs, widely adopted within the NHS, and endorsed by healthcare professionals globally. The unique blend of evaporating alcohols in the fabric reacts to body heat, initiating the cooling process, which deepens the therapeutic impact. Moreover, the support can provide up to two hours of cooling and can be easily recharged with Physicool coolant spray, offering sustained relief without the need to remove the support during reapplication. This feature is particularly beneficial for the continuous management of pain and inflammation; for an uninterrupted recovery process.

What is Physicool Knee Support Used For?

Physicool Cooling Knee Supports are specifically designed to alleviate pain and reduce swelling associated with post-surgical recovery and sports-related injuries. Their advanced cooling technology targets discomfort in the knee area, supporting the body’s natural healing process. Ideal for athletes, individuals recovering from knee surgery, or anyone experiencing knee pain and inflammation, these supports are essential for facilitating quicker recovery and improving overall joint function.

How to Use Physicool Knee Support

  1. Remove from Packaging: Take the knee support out of the foil sachet. Before applying, gently squeeze the support to remove any excess coolant, which can be saved for later use.
  2. Position the Support: Slide the knee support over your knee. Adjust it until it sits comfortably and provides adequate support around the knee area.
  3. Allow for Evaporation: For the cooling technology to work effectively, keep the knee support exposed to the air. This will facilitate the evaporation process that is critical for cooling.
  4. Usage Duration: Wear the knee support for 1–2 hours at a time. It can be used up to 4 times a day to help manage pain and swelling.
  5. Recharge the Cooling: Once the knee support dries or after 2 hours of use, recharge it with Physicool Coolant to maintain its cooling effect. This will ensure continuous relief and support throughout your recovery period.

When to Seek Medical Assistance

  • Persistent Pain: If knee pain persists despite regular use of the knee support or worsens over time, consult a healthcare professional.
  • Severe Swelling: While the knee support helps reduce swelling, excessive or increasing swelling could be a sign of a more serious condition.
  • Changes in Skin Colour: Any discolouration or unusual changes in skin colour around the applied area should be evaluated by a medical expert.
  • Sensory Changes: Numbness, tingling, or a reduction in sensation in the knee or surrounding areas may require medical attention.
  • Allergic Reactions: If you notice signs of an allergic reaction such as itching, redness, or rash where the knee support is applied, stop use immediately and consult a doctor.
  • Post-Surgical Concerns: Post-operation patients should follow the specific advice of their healthcare provider regarding the use of any cooling supports.
  • No Improvement: If there is no noticeable improvement in your condition within a few days of using the knee support, it is advisable to seek medical advice.
