In Every Brace

Physicians


Every ThermoActive brace provides deep cold or heat therapy and most come with adjustable compression. Together, these time-proven treatments relieve pain4,5 and promote healing.4,7 And … it’s portable!.

The brace ensures stability and control while the removable cold/heat gel pak delivers therapeutic relief, whenever it’s needed. In addition, the ability to add compression allows the ThermoTherapy Gel Pak to contour precisely to the affected body part.

ThermoTherapy is convenient, proven & simple. The ThermoActive mobile therapeutic bracing system is ideal for injuries, rehabilitation and post-operative use and may potentially reduce both risks and costs.

"Now I can easily add cold post-operatively to reduce swelling and edema and help manage the pain while the brace provides the stability we need. My patients have accepted this brace better than any other brace we have utilized."
