The Physical Therapist's Hot/Cold Wraps.
Recommended by physical therapists, these wraps are made of a tough, flexible high-glycerine gel that retains both heat and cold, transferring it directly to joints or muscles to provide superior therapeutic treatment.
The body wraps are covered with a four-way stretch material, and can be microwaved for heat therapy or chilled in the freezer for cold applications. The latex-free wraps are leakproof, and the safe, non-toxic gel won't dry out or harden, and remains flexible even at -20 degrees F.
Wraps stay hot or cold for up to 40 minutes, and can be worn under clothing after physical therapy or strenuous exercise.

I bought this neck wrap for my husband who has chronic neck and back pain. He liked the neck wrap so much that we contacted the company that sells this product and bought the back wrap too. For someone with chronic pain, this product truly alleviates the pain.
My wife and I both use this on a regular basis. An ice pack was recommended for my shoulder and this one fit the bill perfect.
My husband recently had knee replacement surgery and when I saw the Hot-Cold Knee Wrap I knew it was just what he needed to enhance his rehabilitation. It is easy to use . . . and reuse! We have both used it on aches and pains (and not just on the knee) since our purchase and would highly recommend it!!
I am recovering from shoulder surgery and was looking for something a little better than a bag of ice or frozen peas to put on my shoulder. This device fits very well and provides incredibly cold surfaces all around your shoulder. The only knock I can see is that it weighs a lot and for me, it kind of hurts to have that much weight on my recovering shoulder. I think this would be perfect for the weekend warrior who just threw too many pitches at his high school reunion baseball game. With a bag of ice, it is very hard to keep it where you want it and you basically have to sit on the couch and wait until the icing is complete. With this device, you strap it on and it stays in place so you can move about the house and continue doing other things without worrying. It fits very snug which of course helps with the icing as well.
Needed this for the heat more so than the cold and while it does heat up and it stays on and fits the shoulder great, it is very hard to get even heat. The ends are extremely hot while the big pad on the shoulder is lukewarm. If you have the patience to heat it a little, refold it, heat it a little, refold it, etc then you should be okay. It does provide some relief when hot.
I have used all prducts avilable to ice down my artificial knee joint to deminish swelling. Nothing compares to your cold wrap for convience and effectiveness.
The Hot-Cold Knee Wrap works best cold. I tried heating it in the microwave as directed but it did not hold the heat very long. Also, the material holding the wrap itself is sensitive to the velcro on the straps(meaning if the velcro becomes attached it rips the outer sleeve when pulling it apart. All this aside, I do like the relief and flexibility of the wrap across multiple sections of my leg.
I'm going through 2 shoulder surgeries and this little miracle is saving my life. It is a little heavy on the shoulder at first, but totally worth it's weight.
Excellent Product! Great value!
This is a great way to ice your shoulder for shoulder rehab due to throwing and overhead sporting injuries. The "gel" inside the sleeve has more of the feel of memory foam as opposed to cheaper versions found in stores. Highly recommended, and my only complaint and reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is that the cooling properties only last about 20 minutes and it doesn't cool your shoulder quite as effectively as conventional icing. With that said, it's much easier to deal with and apply than ice-packs, and allows for functional movement during sessions.
I was unable to heat the wrap evenly. The perimeter of the wrap became much hotter than the interior portion. The heat was too much to place onto my skin. Cold works better. I found it takes overnight to sufficiently chill the wrap. The pleasant advantage is completely wrapping your knee. The 360 degrees is very comforting.
I played baseball through college and now play in a hardball league. I've used quite a few different cold packs over the years. This one is very easy to use and provides very good coverage. I bought this for cold therapy post surgery that repaired my rotator, labrum, and bicept tendonitis. I have not used it as a hot wrap so I can't comment on that. Although it works fairly well, I'd prefer it to start colder and stay colder for the 20mins. This will not replace the use of actual ice! It's still a pretty good wrap.
I bought the small knee wrap and it's so soft, comfortable and is a comfort to use.
I am an avid runner and I play many sports. When my knees gets swollen from running, and jumping I know that 30 minutes with this wrap, ice cold right out of the freezer, and I feel 100% better. Lower back strain from golf and I warm it up in the microwave for 4 minutes and its instant relaxation.
Its versitle, comfortable and duel acting. Best sports wrap ever made!
This is a helpful product
For several years I have had trouble with my shoulder because of rotator cuff damage. "Tins" stimulation, ultra sound, heat rubs, ice, nothing relieved the ache and pain. Medications only dulled the ache, ice helped but I couldn't find something to fit around the shoulder. A bag of frozen peas only helped a little. I tried finding this product locally to no avail and even the pharmacists said they had never seen or heard of anything like it. I remember having seen it in the Sky Mall catalog years ago when I bought a watch. Sure enough there it was and within just a couple of days it was chilling in my freezer prepping for its first application. I love it, it is my salvation after a long hard day at work. I look forward to applying it, when I get home at night, as it fits around the whole shoulder perfectly applying the cold evenly throughout the joint. Having VERY large shoulders I was not expecting it to fit so perfectly. Thank you Sky Mall, my shoulder is feeling great. My next order will be one for my knee.
For years I have struggled to find a cold pack to wear on my shoulder that wouldn't fall off when moving around. I found this wrap on a flight and ordered it as soon as possible. It does a great job of staying in place and has helped my shoulder between workouts more than I could have expected.
Item is first off very hefty to have on & the weight of it makes the top of the shoulder wrap drrop down to your arm. I bought the Extra large which just fit my bicept muscle . Appears you need another strap on this to hold it up on your shoulder it always slips down to your bicept. poorly designed
It was heavier than expected and the lack of instructions made it more difficult to make sure I put it on right. I also found it wanted to slide off the shoulder slightly...maybe my bad, but I got the size I thought would be best.
the wrap works great except it would be nice if the arm wrap was bigger or adjustable and a second strap to keep it from sliding down the arm would make it about perfect
very easy to use, works great
I use the Hot-Cold Shoulder wrap for moderate pain in my right shoulder joint and I do get some relief. Better than taking aspirin all the time. Product durability is the best I've seen.
I use the Hot-Cold Neck wrap for moderate pain in my upper vertibrae and I do get some relief. Better than taking aspirin all the time. Product durability is the best I've seen."
I purchased this for my mother who is often left helpless with spasms in her neck. Using this cold pack has really helped her feel better. The fact that the cold wrap covers all her neck and onto her back makes it much more effective for her pain. (Hint: be sure to roll the connecting tab when not in use so the velcro hooks don't damage the lining of the wrap.)
I would highly recommend for people to use the hot-cold shoulder wrap product. Works really well. It helps ease mucsle discomfort.
Very good for any excercise injury post treatment
Works so much better than other similar wraps. Like it so much I bought a second one to have at the office.
This is a most phenominal item! I just had my 2nd rotator cuff repair in 3 years and couldn't have survived without this being used as a cold pack to help control the pain! Three years ago I borrowed one of these from a friend, but had to return it to her for a subsequent injury she sustained. I made sure to order one for myself before this most recent surgery and am so glad I did, having remembered how helpful it was previously.
My husband has shouldar issues and will probably eventually need surgery. This has been very helpful with flexibily and comfort. It is being used heated now, If he has surgery it will be used differently.
Easy to use. Only used as cold thus far, but you wrap it up in original bag and stick in freezer - it doesn't harden, but instead the gel gets very cold. Easy to handle even if you have a sore shoulder which is why I purchased it for my husband.
I recently underwent shoulder surgery where I not only had to have my shoulder joint scoped but as it turned out my bicep tendon was frayed and had to be cut and re-attached. I am now 5 weeks post surgery and on the long road to recovery. My physical therapy sessions are rough and I do exercises at home as well. Bags of ice cubes, ice packs or assorted pads dont even come close to the relief and total coverage this shoulder wrap gives me. It truly has become my Best Buddy during this long road back.
this does not work as shown and is very heavy and uncomfortable
This shoulder wrap covers the whole shoulder. I wasn't sure I would like it as I just have a specific spot that I wanted cold on. But because this covers so much area, it helps the surrounding muscles and tendons also. So it really does the job.
This is fantastic for shoulder injuries and rotator cuff tears before and after surgery to effectively ice down a difficult to access area because of the rounded shape of the shoulder and upper arm. This makes it so much easier and really chilss the area to help reduce inflammation. It's so much easier than using flat ice packs, plastic bags filled with ice, old fashioned ice bags, or even frozen vegetables
The wrap is the best I've come across. It really helps on cooling down my knees. Great job at creating these.
Does exactly what it claims....very helpful.
Difficult to adjust and keep in place. Uncomfortable.
This is the BEST!! I can walk around and still have the icepack on my upper backl Thank you!
This is exactly what I was looking for.
The knee wraps are convenient and comfortable to wear but do not get cold enough.
This product does not get as cold as most PT wraps. Also it does not close snug in the front. It is OK, but not great.
I have pain in my shoulder and this wrap helps relieve the pain and stays cold for about one half hour. Very practical, resonable price.
It's great to have a cold pack that fits the contour of the shoulder! My greatest problem with other packs was the inability to shape them over the upper arm, and this accomplishes that wonderfully. It doesn't get a 5/5 for two reasons:
(1) It warms up faster than the other packs I have, lasting about 15 minutes at best for me in my warm, humid environment. I get 20-25 off the other gel packs I have.
(2) It is also quite heavy, which works against the claimed advantage of freer movement during treatment.
The size is slightly larger than that implied by the description, so if you're unsure between two sizes, pick the smaller.
Works great with my shoulder. This is 2nd one I've ordered. Worn out the first one after 2 years
The shoulder wrap does work as advertized, hot or cold, but the nature of the gel makes it very difficult to put on or to handle in general. I had to have help from another person to put the wrap on. It is heavy and flops around, causing it to be problematic to control. In fact, my old-fashioned ice bag works just as well.
I bought them for my 86 yr old Mother but they were too heavy and bulky for her to manage. Still in the box. I may return or keep one and give one to my brother. Haven't decided. Rating may not be fair as I haven't tried them other than dry for the fit.!
I'm thinking of getting another one !
This has really helped to make my shoulder feel better after working out.
Excellent product. !Brings great relief! !Beautiful ability to size personally! !Happy customer.
It is a very helpful piece of equipment.!
Although it fits it does not hold the cold or hot too long. !10 minutes?
So glad that I ordered this from the SkyMall; I had one before & didn't know where to order another until I saw it in the catalog. It stays perfectly cool in the freezer & fits well; having 2 of them means that now I always have one that's cold. Good purchase!
I am using this product daily and find it has very good coverage.
This is my second wrap because the first one worked so well.
Got one for my wife.
The person I bought it for uses it daily.
GREAT FEATURES...............TERRIBLE AT RETAINING COLD FOR ONLY TWENTY MIN.
My father has very bad arthritis in his shoulder. I microwave this, for 60 seconds and then flip it over for another 45 seconds. He puts his hand in the sleeve, and I bring it over his shoulder. I don't use the fasteners. The wrap brings him relief, and for that, I am very grateful.
Good value and an effective item
I have two boys that play baseball. They use this each night for their arm and shoulder and it works great.
The gel freezes really well and despite being unbelievably cold on bare skin. Therapeutically it is great along with a TENS unit.
Too heavy for me. My shoulder was already in pain, and putting this on top of it causes excruciating pain. I am sending it back.
I bought this in September and am very pleased with how effectively it releaved the discomfort of my deltoid muscle strain.
I bought this a month ago and it has relieved a lot of pain in my wife's shoulder
I love this product. It is perfect to ease my shoulder pain. Manufacturer should spread this to every catalog or medical equipment supplier everywhere. Nothing like it anywhere.
I wanted it to help a sore shoulder with heat. The the wrap does not retain heat long enough to be effective. It is not easy to constantly reheat and then put back in place on the shoulder.
I returned the product, and I am glad to say was easy to send back.
