The Artex SafeTherapy Sports Towel Wrap Overview – A Different Approach to Pain Relief:
COOL Therapy, Not “Cold Therapy” – Unlike ice or gel, Artex USA’s laboratory grade “thermal wax”, used inside the pockets of each SafeTherapy™ wrap, cannot over-cool – meaning there is NO risk of tissue burn or frostbite. Until fully melted, it holds a safe, comfortable, steady therapeutic temperature that helps accelerate the healing process. Rather than infusing cold, this unique phase change technology actually pulls heat from your injured area, reducing swelling, inflammation, and pain.
How to Use The Sports Towel:
Artex Sports Towel Wraps, available in single or convenient multi-packs, are supplied with everything you need right from the package – simply “charge” it/them before using!
– How to Charge (or recharge) for use: If the Sports Towel Wrap pockets are clear/transparent, simply place the wrap in a refrigerator (or freezer if you’d like it to charge a bit faster). Lay it flat for fastest charging (put in a baggie with your name on it if you’re using a common area fridge).
– When it’s Ready: After about 20 minutes you can see the pockets turn from clear to bright white. At about 40 minutes they will become solid (“charged”) – the wrap is ready for use! The whole process is faster in a freezer; about 15-20 minutes end-to-end.
– Wear it (against skin or over clothing): Place the Sports Towel Wrap on your body, the white side facing your skin. Secure it with the supplied strap until it rests comfortably. NOTE: If you don’t like the feel of the wrap directly against your skin you can place it over a thin garment, simply making sure it is snug enough to feel the cooling effect. That’s it – Relax and let it work! You can even go to sleep or continue to go about your day while Artex SafeTherapy™ works to pull heat and inflammation from your injury.
The Artex SafeTherapy Sports Towel wrap is especially useful for treating sore muscle groups and tendons of the upper arm (brachium) or forearm (antebrachium), or upper leg (thigh) or lower leg (crus or cnemis) as it can be wrapped around these limb areas and easily attached/adjusted with the supplied strap. Of course, it can be applied anywhere on the body that it gives comfort, in either a full flat configuration or folded over on itself, such as around a sore foot arch, wrist, pelvic girdle, around the neck, forehead, etc. It can be worn while sitting, walking or during therapy and will fit anyone. It is great to wear after a workout, surgery or any kind of acute injury (note: we do not recommend wearing over an open wound). The Artex SafeTherapy Sports Towel wrap will help reduce swelling and pain occurring from an acute injury or activities that aggravate a chronic injury.
Because the Sports Towel strap is an Ace bandage with hook/loop attachment, it is both long enough to facilitate attachment nearly anywhere on the body and can be used to adjust the amount of compression you feel, allowing the best adjustment for comfort and activity level.
