Recover Better: joint specific ICE and HEAT packs for injury recovery and management

BodyICE is an Australian owned & designed brand ice compression device. It is a no-fuss ice and compression system that comfortably secures around injured joints and body parts. The ice bags can also be filled with hot tap water for soothing heat therapy. BodyICE was developed by Lydia Lassila, aerial skiing Olympic Champion, after a devastating knee injury at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. With time off her skis in rehabilitation and recovering from surgery, Lydia became frustrated with the inefficiency of the available cold therapy products in the market that leaked, slipped and were not cold enough to use for cold compress.

The End Result

Lydia decided to design and develop BodyICE – A range of ice packs that are easy to travel with, offer compression and mobility and service any joint or area on the body. Leaving no stone unturned, and using the highest quality of products, Lydia coupled the traditional ice bag with elastic neoprene compression straps all carefully designed to fit specific joints and areas.

Benefits of Hot and Cold Compression

Non-pharmacological treatment strategies for acute musculoskeletal injury revolve around promoting healing and pain reduction to facilitate normal function and activity. Heat and cold therapy modalities are often used to facilitate this outcome.

The physiological effects of cold therapy often used in acute conditions include reductions in pain, blood flow, edema, inflammation, muscle spasm, and metabolic demand. The physiological effects of heat therapy that is mostly used in chronic conditions include pain relief and increases in blood flow, metabolism, and elasticity of connective tissues.
