Cold Therapy Care
Freeze Elasto-Gel Hot/Cold Therapy Product for 2 hours (minimum). The wrap or pack will always be soft & pliable even in -20ºF. They can be stored in the freezer until needed. Be sure to store the products in a plastic bag while in the freezer, to keep them from absorbing excess moisture.
Heat Therapy Care
All Elasto-Gel Hot/Cold Therapy Wraps can be heated in both a microwave as well as a conventional oven. Heating times vary depending on size of wrap as well as microwave wattage, from 20 to 90 seconds.
Remove outside cover and hand wash in cold water with mild soap. Allow to air dry. Wipe the white inner cover with a damp (NOT WET) cloth and mild soap or disinfectant. Let product completely air dry before using again.
Be careful not to get the Elasto-Gel Hot/Cold Therapy Wraps wet. The gel will absorb water and swell. If the wraps become damp, allow to fully air dry before attempting to reuse. Do not use wet towels under gel wraps. If product is water-logged, it will need to be replaced.
Be careful not to over heat the Elasto-Gel Hot/Cold Therapy products. The gel heats up gradually and may not feel hot to the touch but will in fact cause burns if overheated. The therapy products should only feel warm to the touch, not hot.
