Which materials are emcools pads made of?
emcools pads are made from latex-free TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) containing a patented special mixture of water and carbon. It is natural, non-toxic, and, if leaked, causes no harm.
Are emcools pads available in different sizes?
Yes, we offer the emcools pads in three different sizes: Flex.Pad™, Flex.Pad™ small, and Flex.Pad™ mini.
Which substance are the emcools pads filled with?
The emcools pads are filled with HypoCarbon®, a patented mixture of water and carbon.
Is the HypoCarbon® in the emcools pads poisonous?
No, HypoCarbon® is non-toxic and environmentally friendly and . Pads can be disposed with ordinary trash.
Is the application of emcools Flex.Pad™ skin-friendly?
Yes, the adhesive on the pads is a medical hydrogel – skin-friendly and dermatologically tested. Even though it sticks well, it can be easily removed.
Can I divide emcools pads to make them individually fit?
The regular size emcools Flex.Pad™ is perforated and can be split into 3 small pads. Tear along the perforation, do not cut! Cutting will cause the pad to leak. The pad sizes “Small” and “Mini” cannot be divided further.
Do I have to freeze emcools pads before use?
Surface cooling is ineffective. A significant benefit and differentiator vis-à-vis other cooling devices is the deep tissue penetration and cooling of emcools pads.
Can emcools pads be used for cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy refers to treatments that involve the use of cold. Therefore emcools pads are very suitable for cryotherapy.
Can emcools pads be used to treat blunt trauma injuries and joint & muscle injuries?
Yes, emcools pads can be used to treat blunt trauma injuries as well as joint & muscle injuries.
Do the emcools pads only cool on surface or does cooling performance penetrate into the deeper tissue layers?
Surface cooling is ineffective. A significant benefit and differentiator compared to other cooling devices is the deep tissue penetration and cooling of emcools pads.
Which advantage do emcools pads have in comparison to cooling with ice and water?
emcools pads provide long lasting, constant cooling in the therapeutic relevant temperature range and do not cause frost bites or other cold related skin damages. emcools pads are well tolerated and not piercingly cold as ice or gel.
Do emcools pads also help with joint or back pain?
Coldness directly numbs nociceptors reducing the sense of pain. Depending on the cause of pain cooling may also be helpful in the long term.
Do the emcools pads help relieve headache and/or migraine?
Depending on the cause and origin of the headache or migraine cooling may be helpful.
Is the cooling duration longer than with gel packs?
The cooling duration with emcools pads is substantially longer. More importantly, the temperature is constant and in the relevant therapeutic range causing no cold related skin damages as they frequently occur with ice or gel.
Do emcools pads decrease swelling after injuries and therefore lead to quicker healing?
Yes, the emcools pads can decrease swelling after injuries and support a quicker recovery.
