*CAUTION:  DO NOT OVERHEAT!! Due to the nature of the gel, it may only feel warm to the touch, but if the wrap has been overheated, too much heat may be transferred to the body and can cause burns.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

COLD THERAPY:

Store the wrap in the freezer for a minimum of two (2) hours.  It may be left in the freezer indefinitely until ready to use.  It will remain flexible even at -20°F.  Remove the wrap prior to defrosting the freezer.  Note:  Always store product in a plastic bag while in freezer.

HEAT THERAPY:

The most convenient method of heating the wrap is in a microwave oven.  Suggested heating times: 600-700 watt microwave:  60-90 Seconds.  Flip the wrap to the opposite side and heat for 60-90 Seconds.  Then refold the wrap (inside to out) and heat for 45 Seconds.  1100 watt: 50 Seconds per side. Note: all microwaves vary in heating and may have “hot spots”.  Be cautious when heating.

Wait one minute (60 seconds) before using.  The wrap should feel WARM to the touch, NOT HOT. Hold the wrap firmly against the skin for 30 seconds before re-heating*.  If the wrap is not warm enough, heat in 20 second increments and rotate the product each time.

The wrap can also be heated in a conventional oven at 250°F for 15-20 minutes.  Place wrap on cookie sheet or baking dish in the center of the oven.  Do not allow the straps or buckles to touch the heating element.  Rotate the wrap after 6 minutes, top to bottom and if folded, inside to out.

    DO NOT GET THE PRODUCTS WET:

    The gel will absorb water and swell.  If the product becomes damp, lay it on a flat surface and allow it to fully air dry before continuing use.  Do not use wet towels under the gel.
