Arctic Ease is a miraculous product for runners like me who are plagued by achey joints and sore muscles. This cold compression therapy wrap provides hours of cool relief without ever going in the freezer. You simply take it out of the container, wrap, and go back to doing what you do. Yeah, it’s that easy.
I was skeptical at first, but I tried Arctice Ease after running a hilly 8-miler this morning and it works. I was able to wrap my knee, dress for work, and go through the rest of my morning with the benefit of cold compression therapy. And, Arctic Ease wraps can easily fit under a pair of jeans and stay securely in place without any pins, tape, or ties.
Unlike ice, Arctic Ease cold wraps absorb heat energy from the body. The absorbed heat is then removed by evaporation allowing for hours of targeted cold therapy. There is no danger of frostbite, and no melting ice pooling in your socks.
The self-adhesive properties of the wrap keep it in place even when you’re active. So, you could wrap your calf and jump on the bike for an hour with no worries. Each strip can be used 4-8 times. It’s cooling effect can be reactivated by rerolling it and placing it in a zip-lock bags with 2 teaspoons of water. It’s really quite remarkable. No drips, no ice pack, and no sitting around.
The Arctic Ease strips come in two sizes: a 4″x60″ full-size wrap for knees and larger joints, and a smaller 2.75″x36″ wrap for smaller joints like the wrist or ankle. Wraps also come in four different colors: red, blue, black, and pink.
