IceBand Knee Brace £33.00
With IceBand® knee bandage, the patient can, at home, obtain safe and effective cooling and compression therapy during the entire rehabilitation period.
The need for painkillers will be reduced.
For hygienic reasons, use the bandage as a personal aid.
IceBand® can also be used for acute injuries; for this purpose, the bandage is designed to provide sufficient compression treatment via broad and easily adjusted Velcro bands.
The risks for side effects are very low (see below).
The protective non woven fabric eliminates the risk for frost bite and enables maximum use of the cooling effect.
All patients benefit from IceBand®, some during the acute inflammatory phase and others during the full post operative rehabilitation period.
IceBand® is the safe, simple and efficient way to faster first aid rehabilitation and postoperative pain relief, using pure water and PCE™ technology.
Cold compression dressing is an important part of postoperative rehabilitation and pain relief . Cooling has a hypo metabolic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect . In combination with compression therapy, this leads to less swelling, less tissue damage and a quicker rehabilitation. During the acute inflammatory phase, the first 72 hours, and during the reparative phase, 72 hours to 6 weeks after injury/surgery cooling has a positive effect.
The most efficient cooling agent is ice.
To have a noticeable effect, cooling therapy should last at least 20 minutes.
For optimal effect it is recommended that each period of cold therapy should last for approximately 60 minutes.

I was given one of these by the hospital when I had my knee replacement. I have, so far, lent it to three friends and just bought one for another friend who has also had knee surgery. It is a brilliant piece of kit, so much easier than bulkier things that need filling up with ice and water, etc. Wouldn't be without this. Excellent service when I bought one and it arrived two days later, as stated.

This product has proved invaluable since my total knee replacement. I was given it by the hospital coming home and have been using it 3 times a day since my surgery. It is so easy to put on and stays in place and is also very hygienic. Highly recommended !!
An abdominal strain occurs when the rectus abdominus is torn or ruptured. The abdominal muscles allow movement, assist with breathing, and provide support to the spine. They consist of the internal and external obliques, rectus abdominus, and the transversus abdominus. The transversus abdominus muscle is triangular and flat, and the rectus abdominus is long and flat. If the abdominal muscles become weak or tight, they can cause poor posture and back pain.
There are three types of abdominal muscle strain; grade 1, grade 2 and grade 3.
A grade 1 strain occurs when a few muscle fibres are torn;
a grade 2 strain occurs when the tears to the muscle fibres are more extensive;
and a grade 3 strain occurs when there is a complete rupture of the muscle
Any sport which involves a fast movement or sudden change in direction can cause abdominal muscle strain. Gymnasts, weight lifters, rowers, throwers are particularly susceptible to abdominal strain.
