ThermaFreeze™ Products Corporation and Recover Gear Announce Pact for Line of Compression Garments

RED BANK, NJ--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - ThermaFreeze™ Products Corporation (PINKSHEETS: TFZP) and Recover Gear/Fizio (, announced today the adoption of ThermaFreeze™ in Recover Gear/Fizio's compression product line.

Steve Petitt, CEO of Recover Gear, stated, "As a former professional baseball player and World Class triathlete, I got tired of balancing ice packs on injured areas of my body. Recovery Gear/Fizio is a recovery system that incorporates compression and hot and cold therapy in 6 different garments with pockets able to insert ThermaFreeze™ to provide relief to muscles, joints and tendons. We have tried every gel pack on the market, but they all proved to be too heavy and cumbersome, and don't have hot and cold capability. Our research showed that ThermaFreeze™ stays cold 4 times longer than conventional gel packs and is much lighter and flexible, so it doesn't weigh down our garments when inserted into the pockets of our garments. I'm pleased to announce that Recover Gear/Fizio will be using ThermaFreeze™ exclusively as our hot and cold modality source. There is no other system on the market today that combines our unique technologies. Ice and compression has been around for a long time, but until Recover Gear/Fizio, incorporating ThermaFreeze™, there has never been a more effective and efficient way to provide hot and cold therapy."

Jim Bolton, Chief Operating Officer of ThermaFreeze™, stated, "Recover Gear/Fizio is a great compression product line. Serious and recreational athletes, along with anyone that experiences joint and muscle pain will find Recover Gear's compress products beneficial."
