Hot cold pack products are perfect for treating aches and pains all over. DME-Direct carries two main types of reusable hot cold packs: clay and gel hot cold pack styles for specific body parts, and larger-sized, multi-use varieties for use on your entire body. The smaller joint-specific models are shaped to provide a perfect fit around the joint you're treating (like a knee or ankle), whereas a multi-use reusable hot cold pack is usually shaped like a large rectangle and can be used all over body but might not come with a specific covering to hold it in place. You'll find gel hot cold pack models from all the best names for medical-grade styles like ActiveWrap, McDavid, SofTouch, and more. We deliver 100,000+ each year to customers, patients, physicians, and hospitals. Search below to find your favorite model.
What Makes One Hot Cold Pack Different From Other Hot and Cold Packs?
It doesn't take much effort to create a cheap hot cold pack. The bags are usually made out of cheaper synthetic plastics that break down quickly with repeated heating and cooling. Their weld points just can't hold up to daily use. Also, cheaper chemical gels are used which do not retain their heat and cold as well. Finally, they pretty much leave all the air inside instead of drawing it out which prevents the product from molding well to the contours of the joint you're treating. The good news is that our hot cold pack products all use the highest grade bags, and use the highest quality gels for retaining the temperature desired for effective hot/cold treatment. Most of our reusable hot cold packs have had the air removed to contour better to your body.
