What I hate most about ice packs is that you have to balance most of them on the body part that needs icing. And the ones that wrap if and when you can find them, frequently don’t give you 20 minutes of cold. But these The Torex Hot/Cold Therapy Sleeves are a refreshing departure from the usual.
Torex Knee Ice Pack surrounds the entire joint, offers compression and stays on well
This knee ice pack as well as any of their other products, comes with a soft sleeve that you put on under cold pack when you get it out of the freezer. You put the sleeve on first, then the ice pack. The 360 degree coverage keeps the cold in contact with all sides of your sore knee simultaneously--and it stays on securely.
It also refreezes fairly quickly which is a nice bonus. Two hours is the recommended time and you should keep yours in the freezer.
Make sure you order your Torex Hot/Cold Knee Sleeve in the right size!

See the fit box above when ordering. The disadvantage of it as a sleeve does make it inconvenient to share ice packs with family members of different sizes.
However, we think the benefit of less pain and fewer pain medication refills is worth it. While we love the polar care cub for cryotherapy as well as the cryocuff, there are times when you need something more compact and more portable. If you take this traveling -- to put in a freezer at the beach for example -- be sure to pack it in a ziplock bag. Squeeze out the air first for best results.
