FAQs

DR. WHAT?!

Everyone knows they should ice their injuries, but a lot of us don’t… “It’s too cold!” “I always end up soaking wet!” “Being stuck on the couch with a bulky bag of ice sucks!” “I ate the frozen peas last week…” Dr. Cool wraps make it convenient to ice and compress for a quick recovery. In the car, at the grocery store, mid-climb or on the trail after a sprint, just take your frozen wrap and put it on whatever ails you.

WHAT ARE THE DR. COOL WRAPS USED FOR?

Dr. Cool wraps can be used dry as a compression wrap to support and protect various body parts during activities, or wet and frozen to combine ice-therapy and compression to reduce pain and swelling, and speed recovery.

WHAT MAKES DR. COOL DIFFERENT?

The patented chemical-free cooling technology, designed by Coolcore flash freezes in only twenty minutes and stays ice cold longer than other ordinary fabrics. They’re simple to use. They’re not bulky. They don’t drip everywhere. All that AND they come in a variety of beautiful colors!!!

WHERE'S THE PROOF?

Not only has the patented cooling technology earned the Hohenstein Institute’s prestigious “Innovative Technology” award, we have also partnered with many of the medical industry’s most trusted organizations, including the American Physical Therapists Association.

HOW DO I USE MY DR. COOL WRAP?

It’s simple!

  1. Just wet the patented blue fabric on this inside of the wrap
  2. Throw it the freezer for at least twenty minutes
  3. Then wrap it on whatever is hurting!

Once it thaws, you can either throw it back in the freezer for another twenty minutes and re-apply it for that doctor-recommended on-off-and-on-again treatment, or just leave it on for cool support!

DO YOU HAVE A WRAP FOR MY...?

No matter what hurts, we’ve got you covered! Our wraps come in three sizes, and while we suggest you get creative with how you use them…

  • The 3”x25” works great for plantar fasciitis, ankles, wrists and small shins.
  • The 4”x50” works great for knees, elbows, thighs and calves.
  • The 6”x50” works great for large thighs, and torsos/backs.

There’s really no wrong way to wrap Dr. Cool!

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO LEAVE MY WRAP IN THE FREEZER?

Dr. Cool wraps will flash freeze in just twenty minutes, but you can keep them in there as long as you’d like.

HOW LONG WILL MY WRAP STAY COLD?

Properly frozen, Dr. Cool wraps will stay below 40 degrees Fahrenheit for twenty minutes when applied directly to the skin. This is the temperature and length of time doctors recommend for ice therapy, so you don’t have to worry about over-icing, which can be harmful.

WILL MY WRAP BE TOO COLD?

Everyone’s different when it comes to tolerating severe temperatures. The wraps come out of the freezer at whatever temperature you keep it, then begin thawing immediately. This means you won’t “burn” your skin, and if it is too cold you can just give it a minute before it’ll be a more comfortable temperature.

HOW LONG WILL MY DR. COOLER KEEP MY WRAP FROZEN?

Two-to-four hours, depending on the environment.

IS THERE ANY LATEX IN MY WRAP?

No.

WHAT INJURIES SHOULD I USE MY WRAP FOR?

Rest, ice, compression and elevation—or “R.I.C.E.” as many refer to it—is an age-old prescription for anyone dealing with life’s little bumps, bruises, aches and sprains. By combining ice and compression, Dr. Cool is great for reducing pain and swelling for these sorts of ailments. Dr. Cool wraps are not intended to act as a brace or remedy. Consult a doctor for all serious injuries.

HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY WRAPS?

Since our technology is chemical-free, our wraps are 100% machine washable. We recommend machine washing with like colors or separately before first use and whenever your wrap needs it. Never use fabric softener or bleach. And, if you plan on leaving your wrap in the freezer for an extended period of time, please use a freezer bag to avoid evaporation, or else you’ll have to re-wet and re-freeze your wrap.

HOW LONG WILL MY DR. COOL WRAP LAST?

It depends on how much you beat it up! But, again, since our technology is in the fabric itself and isn’t a chemical treatment, as long as you care for it as instructed our technology will last as long as the garment itself.
