Cool and cold

There is a difference between cool and cold

Cold: Ice and Cold packs

  • The traditional first aid treatment is to use ice or cold pack for the first 15 minutes and repeat the treatment every 30-60 minutes.
  • Cold releases endogenous endorphins that produce good feeling
    Tissue damage/frost bite caused by cold: ice crystals in the tissue damage the cell structures, nerves and small vains
  • The blood circulation has slowed down for a much longer period than the cooling effect lasts

Cool: Ice Power Cold Gel and Creme

  • The optimal cooling effect is achieved without the risk of frost bites or tissue damage
  • Decreases the skin temperature by 5-7 degrees Celsius –> controlled cooling
  • First slows down, then after 15 minutes increases blood circulation

Optimal cooling effect is achieved with Ice Power Cold Gel
