Keep That Frozen Bag of Peas in the Freezer Where it Belongs

BARRIE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 14, 2014) - An innovative fabric wrap is hitting Canadian store shelves that enables those with life's little bumps, bruises, aches and sprains to ice the injury conveniently, while still doing everyday activities including work.

Dr. Cool uses a patented chemical-free 'Coolcore' fabric that flash freezes in only 20 minutes and provides ice therapy for about 15 minutes and deeper tissue cooling for up to 50 minutes, without bothersome dripping as it thaws. It offers 360 degrees of cold compression versus traditional ice packs that cover only a limited area.

"It is an ideal solution to help many people get the proper ice and compression that they need, when they need it," says Rick Schaly, who is instrumental in bringing Dr. Cool into Canada from the United States. "It is so much better than that cumbersome bag of frozen peas or slippery plastic bag filled with ice. This is truly recovery-on-the-go."

Schaly operates Trainers Choice, a sport medicine product company, as well as a renowned chain of sport medicine clinics that provide physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage therapy and athletic therapy services.

Schaly reminds us to consult a physician, physiotherapist or athletic therapist to evaluate the nature of the injury and its treatment.

With a suggested retail price of $24.99 for three inch wraps, Dr. Cool comes in several fashionable colours and is washable. It can also be used dry as a compression wrap to support and protect various body parts during activity, to help shorten recovery time.

The Dr. Cool recovery-on-the-go wraps are available at Canadian retailers including London Drugs, Sport Chek, Target, Brunet, PharmaSave, Rexall, Value Drug Mart, Running Free, Sporting Life and Royal Distributing.
