Therapacks are Australian-made heat and cold packs, which have been developed by healthcare professionals, to be as allergy-friendly as they can. Therapacks are easy to use, comfortable to wear and are available in a range of designs to suit most parts of the body while minimising any reduction in mobility. They work by subtly moulding to the contours of the body. Where helpful, Therapacks are fitted with secure Velcro straps.
Therapacks contain natural Australian lupin seeds – chosen for their remarkable heat-retaining qualities. Lupin seeds are odourless, pest-resistant, allergy friendly and, unlike hot water bottles or gels, safe in the event of spills. They are made from 100% cotton and are hand-washable. These packs can be heated in either an oven or a microwave, or chilled in a freezer.
The Therapacks Elbow and Ankle Pack is designed to fit the ankle, elbow and upper arm. The pack wraps neatly around these areas and is held in place by Velcro fastening straps. The wearer retains mobility while enjoying the benefit of continuously applied treatment. The pack may relieve sports injuries, bring local pain relief, and ease joint pain, sprains and arthritis.
This pack is good for:
• Joint pain
• Repetitive strain
• Tennis elbow
• Sports injuries
Heat packs may help ease muscular tension and cramps by increasing the blood flow to the injured area. Hot packs can be used for psychological comfort, pain relief and healing. Cold packs may help to decrease swelling and haemorrhaging by constricting the blood vessels that supply the injured area. Cold packs can be used to reduce soreness, bruising and swelling. They may ease minor burns.
