The Bottom Line
Open the package, put ice in the baggie, slip the baggie into the compression wrap pocket, place it against the injury, and wrap it. When not in use, the Ice Right stores flat and takes up very little space.
The only real downside? You have to supply the ice or an instant ice-pack.
- Quick and easy to use
- Can be re-used
- Self-contained (all you add is ice or an instant ice-pack)
- Fastens securely for good compression
- Only comes in one size
- Must have ice or an ice-pack on-hand
- Must "wash" the ice's sharp edges so they do not puncture ice baggie
- 5-stars if it came with its own instant ice pack
- Reusable, self-contained ice and compression system - all you have to add is the ice(or an instant ice-pack)
- Bandage dimensions: 6 x 36 inches (6 x 97 inches stretched)
- Latex free fabric
- Velcro self-closure
- Leak-proof Zip-Loc baggie (remember to wash the sharp edges off of the ice prior to placing in the baggie)
Guide Review - Ice Right Compression Ice Wrap for Treatment and Prevention of Swimming Injury
It comes in a Zip-lock baggie that double as the system's ice container. The wrap has a pocket on one end attached to a 6-inch wide, 36-inch (97-inch stretched) long, latex-free compression bandage. The wrap can be hand-washed after each use, dried, and stored in the plastic baggie.
From the manufacturer: Ice Right is a simple-to-use compression bandage with an integrated ice pocket. Fill the included baggie 1/3 full of ice and insert the baggie into the ice pouch on the bandage. Then, place the ice pocket on the injured area, wrap the bandage around the injury using desired compression and fasten with the Velcro strip. Desired compression varies, but many find that stretching the bandage 50-75% of initial length is appropriate.
