Physicool is a unique cooling bandage system impregnated with rapidly evaporating alcohols. When the bandage is wrapped around a limb or body part, the alcohols will react to the body heat and evaporate. The evaporative process draws heat out of the local underlying tissue. Whilst the deep tissue is cooling down the simultaneous compression will modify the inflammatory response, helping healing and recovery.
Physicool’s range of innovative cooling products have been designed and medically tested to deliver the very best in instant cooling therapy. These cooling bandages combine the benefits of rapid cooling and compression and are clinically proven to outperform ice in the reduction of swelling and inflammation. Physicool’s reusable cooling bandage comes pre-treated in the medically formulated coolant.
Physicool in the treatment of an injury
When an injury occurs there is inflammation and pain. Oedema occurs due to an increase in local blood flow to the injured site. The application of Physicool’s cooling bandage reduces the tissue temperature around the injured site resulting in constriction of local blood vessels; therefore reducing blood flow and swelling, treating the injured area. Reducing the amount of swelling early on will reduce the pain as the nerve endings at the injured site will not be as compressed.
