- Accelerate the healing of your knee injury
- Quickly relieve knee injury pain to a manageable level
- Reduce the amount of scar tissue from you injured knee
- Reduce the amount of scar tissue formed during your recovery
- Regain lost Range of Motion by reducing the atrophy in your injured knee
...you simply need the right treatment.
But before you decide on a knee treatment path, an understanding of the three major stages of the healing process is critical. With the right knowledge and the right treatment options, you can accelerate your recovery without the fear of re-injury or setbacks (which unfortunately, happens to many people - we will explain why further down the page).
Step 1: Reduce The Initial Inflammation
Inflammation is the body's natural response to a shoulder injury and is a normal part of the healing process - helping to reduce tissue infection in the early stages of injury. Swelling, pain, heat sensation, redness, and loss of function are the main symptoms experienced and it is your bodys way of telling you there is something wrong.
The combination of cold therapy and static compression is the gold standard in medicine for minimizing tissue damage and reducing inflammation after injury or activity. It serves as a critical bridge into the next phase of the healing process.
Step 2: Enhance Blood Flow to the Injured Soft Tissue
Tendons,ligaments, cartilage, and some muscle fibres are considered dense tissues. As a result, they naturally receive limited blood flow and this is precisely why injuries to these tissues take so long to heal. The challenge is, how do you effectively increase blood flow to these tissues in the knee?
- Rigorous exercise is out of the question as it will lead to further injury.
- Heating pads merely provide a surface heat and do not effectively penetrate into the dense tissues.
- Therapy is helpful, but that only happens a few times a week.
It is through the blood the body carries the nutrients, oxygen, and antibodies the injured tissues need to repair and rebuild. Research shows that electromagnetic energy is a very effective treatment for stimulating blood flow to dense tissues such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, and even portions of cartilage. This dramatically improves the healing process.
Electromagnetic energy is an energy waveform that is absorbed by dense tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) and absorbed much less by low density tissue (fat cells, skin). Absorption of this energy translates to heat, and the body increases blood flow to the area as a response to the heat. This increased blood flow speeds up the healing process, clearing the area of toxins and excess fluid build up, thereby reducing inflammation. This process is simply known as BFST®, and stands for Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™. This is a very important tool for complete and fast healing!
Step 3: Recognize That Healing is a Process
With dedication, the right tools, and the right information - you will achieve your goal of a sustainable recovery. A combination approach of cold compression therapy, deep heat treatments, and functional movements will make it happen much more quickly. Healing takes a comprehensive approach and will differ from person to person.

Healing Solutions for Tendonitis of the Knee, Knee Strain or Partial Knee Tear
Are you looking for a superior level of treatment for your injured knee or chronic knee pain? There are highly effective treatments for knee injuries that you probably do not know about. A great number of our clients have achieved their goal of overcoming a debilitating knee injury and have returned back to their regular activities sooner than expected by treating themselves at home.
For years, professional athletes (and privileged individuals) have had access to state of the art treatment therapies that allow them to heal more quickly and more completely than you or I. This is why athletes that have a serious knee injury can often get back in the game in a matter weeks, while you could suffer for months or even years (in chronic cases). Fortunately, with some of breakthrough products we have engineered, professional treatment is now available to anyone who needs it.
Knee tendinitis, knee strain, partial knee tears (ACL, MCL or PCL), runner's knee or a knee hyperextension can happen to anyone, not just professional athletes. Right now, there are thousands of doctors and physical therapists dealing with patients that require a solution to treat their injury fast and heal it (where possible). Maybe they are competitive golfers or football players that must return to their sport quickly (downtime=money), or perhaps they are just patients that are unwilling to just take pain pills, lay in bed and wait. Regardless of who you are or your reasons, if you want to be proactive about properly addressing your injured knee, speak with your physician about augmenting your treatment with MendMyKnee's system utilizing BFST® and ColdCure® Technology. We have many happy customers that have healed their knee injury faster than they expected as well as significantly reduced their pain during treatment.
The 4 Inferno Wraps and 2 Freezie Wraps made a great difference
I love the products and I can definitely tell they are making a big difference in my healing. I just wish I had known of your products even sooner.
I was in a serious motorcycle accident back in July and broke 17 bones, had a collapsed lung, and had numerous twists and sprains along with a lot of swelling. I was in the intensive care unit for 7 days and then in the hospital for 7 more before I was able to go home.
To make a long story short, since using your products my pain level has gone down immensely and the swelling is finally under control. I even take the Inferno wrist and back wrap to work and use it since I have a desk job that makes it possible.
I am down to just walking with a cane now and will probably be able to get rid of that in about two weeks. I did twenty minutes on the stationary bike yesterday and walked for ½ mile on our treadmill. Within another couple months I hope to be back to jogging several miles every other day.
The 4 Inferno Wraps and 2 Cold Cure products along with lots of prayers on my behalf have helped make the difference.
Thanks again so much, and God Bless you guys for your products!
Also, here is a little more about my status now. I just ran the Peachtree Road Race (a 10K event – 6.2 miles) in 9:07 per mile. That was back on July 4. I just ran a 5K (3.1 miles) in 8:22 per mile this last weekend. I truly believe the wraps helped me get that level of fitness back. Many people my age (55) don’t even ever get in that kind of shape, let alone a year after a major accident with all the complications that I had.

Anyone can injure their knee badly, not just professional athletes. Knee injuries are very common and are often a result of a quick twist or a blow to the knee or overuse of the knee joint. Stretching or tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or the medial collateral ligament (MCL), tearing of the meniscus, tendinitis in the patellar tendon or quadriceps tendon, and Hoffa's Syndrome are all frequent knee injuries. Regardless of the type of soft tissue that is damaged, it is painful and your knee can feel very unstable. Knee injuries can persist for years and be disruptive to your way of life. Recovery can take a long time but proper healing is essential to regain strength and get you back to the activities you enjoy.
Knee Movement and the Re-Injury Cycle
Every time you flex your knee, those ligaments and muscle tissue move; when they are inflamed, every movement hurts. Once this tissue is injured it's painful and becomes very difficult to recover 100% without proper treatment.
It is almost impossible to keep from re-straining your knee because even when the pain is gone you still aren't fully healed. But, when the pain disappears, that's when we start using our knee normally again even though it isn't fully healed. It's just not possible to stop everything and rest the injury properly. Everyone has demands that make them keep going and when we are active we prevent the knee from healing completely. We continually re-injure the area through our daily activities which can often lead to knee replacement surgery later in life.
So I Think I Have a Knee Injury - What Should I Do?
If you suspect you may have a knee injury, the first thing to do is consult your physician; only your physician can give you a proper diagnosis and from this, determine a course of proper treatment.
After seeking medical advice, your physician will almost always recommend conservative treatment options - conservative treatment options for a knee injury typically means rest, ice the injury, elevation of the injury and take anti-inflammatory medication. (reference: 1, 2, 3).
If you want to treat your knee injury with conservative treatment options, then you will find that our customers have had great success treating themselves with the most effective conservative treatment products you can use at home - the Freezie Wrap® and the Inferno Wrap®.
If surgical intervention is required, you will find we have effective solutions for inflammation reduction before and after surgery. Reduction of inflammation reduces pain, enhances range of motion and minimizes scar tissue growth. You can read more about effective options for pre/post knee surgery here.
The Good News: the Body uses Blood to Repair Itself
Before we go further, it is important to understand that your body is capable of healing itself. This is why your physician will always try to opt for the conservative treatment first - usually, it works although it takes time to heal. Your blood flow carries oxygen and much needed nutrients to injured cells in the body while also flushing away toxins and waste at the same time. When you have a knee injury, however, there is not much blood flow in your injured knee; inflammation and lack of joint movement reduces the flow of blood to the area. Further to this, if you are moving your injured knee around you run a risk of increasing the severity of the injury. If there has been some healing, you could re-injure your knee all over again.
Blood Flow - the natural healing process in your body needs assistance for knee injuries because blood flow is greatly restricted when you are immobile. When treating Patellar Tendonitis, a Knee Ligament Injury or any soft tissue knee injury, an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile. This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself. The Knee Inferno Wrap® is the most highly effective blood flow stimulation device that you will find on the market.
To Start Recovery, Re-injury of Knee Tendons,
Ligaments and Muscles Must be Avoided!
It goes without saying that anyone suffering from a knee injury should want to minimize their chance of worsening the injury, or re-injuring it once it has started to get better. Obviously, a worsening injury will delay the healing process, but what's worse is that every re-injury and additional healing cycle increases the amount of time that your joint is immobilized. Time is hard on an immobilized joint - you lose strength in the joint but worse than that, you lose the range of motion in your joint via atrophy (your flexible tendons, muscles and ligaments slowly shrink, decreasing joint elasticity). The more time that goes by with an immobile joint, the more likely you will wind up with a chronic joint problem (long term injury with persistent flare-ups). Basically it means that your joint will not perform as well as it once did and it becomes more prone to injury again later on.
If you have soft tissue knee injury or meniscus injury, it's very important to heal it quickly and completely. Minimizing the healing time of your knee should be an obvious goal, as a serious knee injury will assuredly limit your ability to go about your daily routine. "Not all knee pain is serious. But some knee injuries and medical conditions, such as osteoarthritis, can lead to increasing pain, joint damage and disability if left untreated. And having a knee injury — even a minor one — makes it more likely that you'll have similar injuries in the future." (Knee Pain: MayoClinic.com. 29 Mar. 2013. )
What You Need to Successfully Treat Your Knee Injury:
- A Professional Cold Compression Knee Freezie Wrap® to reduce inflammation of the soft tissue injury (as soon as possible).
- A Deep Tissue Therapeutic Knee Inferno Wrap® to increase Blood-flow to the injured knee (BFST® Therapy).
- A Professional, Minimal Impact Knee Stretching Device, known as the Knee-Flex® to prevent muscle atrophy and gently allow stretching of the knee.
These 3 tools are what you need for rapid healing. These are the tools that top professional athletes use to treat their injuries every single day. And just like these athletes, you can treat yourself at home. In fact, if you want to heal properly you have to treat yourself because you need to treat your injury every single day.
If you have a Soft Tissue Knee Injury, it's important to heal it quickly and completely. If you don't, it may plague you for years.
The more scar tissue that develops, the more likely your joint will wind up permanently worsened due to chronic pain, arthritis or reduced mobility. Scar tissue means that your knee will not perform as well as it once did and it makes it much more prone to injury later on. This is why it is massively important to deal with your Knee Injury properly right from the start. Heal it completely and fast to avoid re-injury.
Time is Money. A common phrase that is especially true when you are suffering from a debilitating injury! Rapid recovery will not happen by itself; if you need rapid recovery and complete healing then we advise you speak with your physician about whether the Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap® are therapies you could use for assisting in your conservative treatment at home.
Anyone in the health-care business knows that your blood supplies the oxygen and much needed nutrients required to heal soft tissue injuries (injuries of cartilage, muscles ligament and tendons are soft-tissue injuries). The problem is that an injured knee means your blood flow is usually restricted in the area through inactivity and inflammation (swelling). The first step for conservative treatment of a soft tissue knee injury is to reduce the swelling to "open up" the area for greater blood flow. This is why health-care workers advise you to "ice" and "elevate" your injured knee... it gets the swelling down fast. Second, treat the injured area with the MendMeShop® Inferno Wrap®. Through this process,
- Pain from the swelling diminishes, as the Freezie Wrap® treatments achieve the goal of inflammation reduction
- Blood circulation is stimulated in the knee area (via the Inferno Wrap®), and this increased blood flow flushes toxins from the injury site and brings more nutrients to area, allowing the injury to repair itself more quickly.
The Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap® are highly effective therapy tools for recovering patients of knee injuries. These products will aid in the recovery stage of healing and help prevent re-injury or tendon/muscle strain in the weakened joint. Without the risk of re-injury, most patients can and will recover from their injuries at an advanced rapid rate.
A knee joint injury is a race against time. The faster and stronger you heal your knee, the less chance there is for re-injury or knee problems later on.
Reduction of Swelling (and Swelling Associated Pain)...
Would you know you injured yourself if there was no pain? Probably not! Pain and swelling perform a useful role in letting you know that you did, in fact, injure yourself. Pain and swelling are what get you to seek out medical attention in the hopes of finding a way to reduce the pain and heal your injury.
Inflamed soft tissue in the knee can cause extreme pain and reduce your ability to move. When using a Cold Compression Knee Freezie Wrap®, you can control inflammation and support the knee joint which speeds up healing and clears away the pain. You don't need medication, drugging your whole body, to mask the pain. You need to reduce the inflammation in your knee and avoid re-injury to see a reduction in pain.
We all know that if the injury was healed, the pain would go away but what about the opposite situation? If the pain is gone, does that mean the injury is better? Unfortunately, this is not always true. The Cold Compression Knee Freezie Wrap® is very effective at reducing swelling and the pain associated with swelling. Just remember that an injury is not healed just because the swelling is gone - this is why you need to keep treating the injury with BFST® and begin mild stretches of the knee joint with the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device. When used in combination, these three modalities provide all the necessary treatments to reduce the pain of your injured knee, greatly enhance the blood flow to your injury and allow you to maintain and even improve the elasticity within the knee joint.
If you have a meniscus injury, knee injury or chronic pain in the knee, you can heal quickly if you treat your injury correctly. That means talking with your physician about using the right therapies every single day. I will now explain to you exactly why these three therapies are critical for properly addressing a meniscus injury. Learning about each of the three components of this therapy system is essential. Once you have read more about our therapies, you will understand that we have the unique ability to provide you with the best treatment options available to you at home. In fact, our products are currently being used in many doctors and therapist clinics - they are just that good!
The Knee Inferno Wrap® and Knee Freezie Wrap® are intended for superior treatment of:
- Anterior Cruciate Ligament Strain, Partial Tear or Post Surgical Recovery.
- Meniscus Injuries - all forms.
- Medial Collateral Ligament Strain, Partial Tear or Post Surgical Recovery.
- Lateral Collateral Ligament Strain, Partial Tear or Post Surgical Recovery.
- Posterior Cruciate Ligament Strain, Partial Tear or Post Surgical Recovery.
- General Knee Strain or Inflammation Due to Hyper-extension.
- Knee Replacement Post Surgical Recovery.
- Chronic Knee Pain and Knee Osteoarthritis Pain Symptoms.
If you have a bad knee injury or chronic condition, you will benefit greatly by treating your injury correctly. That means using the right therapies every single day. Here's how they work:
The Knee Freezie Wrap®...
for Fast Relief of Pain and Swelling in the Knee
Cold compression wraps are the de-facto standard for treatment of inflammation and pain. On an injured knee, the Freezie Wrap® will immediately reduce the risk of further damage from increased swelling. The Knee Freezie Wrap® provides compression and decreases the temperature in all the major areas of the knee. All medical professionals agree that controlling the swelling of an injury is a fundamental necessity in reducing long term (chronic) permanent damage obtained from a soft tissue injury. The use of a cold compression wrap is the first step that should be taken to seize control of a soft tissue injury.
The ColdCure® Technology Knee Freezie Wrap® is a medical grade cold compression wrap. This wrap has been designed for an industrial standard of usage, specifically for physical therapists, hospitals and physician's clinics. Know that this is a safe medical grade product with an extremely long lifespan. In fact, each Freezie Wrap® is made to last for years, meaning it will most assuredly outlast your injury - even if you use it constantly.
Once you hold one in your hands, you will quickly discover the Freezie Wrap® is unlike any other cold compression wrap out there. First of all, you will notice the weight of the Freezie Wrap®. Each one of our Freezie Wrap® gel packs contain a special formulation of gel (called RigiGel®) that provides more cooling power per pound than standard cold compression wraps. They contain more gel than other wraps, meaning each time you put on a Freezie Wrap® it will keep your injured area cold for a longer period; pain relief is enhanced and swelling is better controlled. Each Freezie Wrap® you order will come with 3 large cold packs - allowing long term use in clinical settings as well as the ability to always have a fully charged pack on hand at home. Some of our clients use the Knee Freezie Wrap® at home and work, keeping a spare pack charging the fridge or freezer at the office and home!
Every Knee Freezie Wrap® comes with 2 BONUS gel packs so you will always have one cold to treat your pain!
RigiGel® has a unique formula that never freezes rock solid even after being in the freezer for extended periods of time. RigiGel® can be chilled in the freezer AND remain ice cold for the duration of your treatment. It's the specially formulated gel technology that makes the Freezie Wrap® unique. In addition, every Freezie Wrap® is made of high quality, medical grade neoprene that gives you superior, adjustable compression.
Our Freezie Wraps® are made of the highest quality materials, fit perfectly, stay in place, are extremely durable, and are filled with special non-migrating RigiGel®. What is non-migrating gel? It’s special gel that will not move when pressure is applied. It will stay in place when you place it on your knee and will work to provide you with cold compression throughout the course of the treatment. The gel is so strong you can even stand on it and it won’t move! This is important when applying pressure to a meniscus injury. You want the cold where you need it, you want to guarantee the cold stays in place! And our non-migrating gel will do just that!
I am 57 years old and run marathons and ultra-marathons. When training, I run about 40 miles per week.
I am very impressed with the Knee Freezie and Inferno Wraps®. I started to get some relief immediately and believe that I am on the road to a full recovery.

Freezie Wraps® work best because they interrupt and slow nerve and cell function in the damaged knee. Once blood vessels are damaged they can no longer carry oxygenated blood to the damaged knee and therefore cells begin to break-down. The deep cold provided by the Knee Freezie Wrap®
- slows cell function, reducing cellular break-down
- numbs the nerves, reducing pain in the treated area
- and reduces inflammation which reduces pain caused from swelling
In the early days or weeks of your knee injury the inflammation is partly your body's reaction to try to immobilize the injured area. Unfortunately this inflammation also strains the surrounding tissue and causes pain.
A Quick Summary of Freezie Wrap® Advantages:
- The Freezie Wrap® is made of high-quality, medical grade neoprene - this provides highly adjustable compression to the knee.
- The Freezie Wrap® comes with 3 gel packs - use one at a time while charging the other two in the fridge or freezer for continuous use.
- Freezie Wrap® Gel Packs contain much more gel than a typical compression wrap and the gel formulation provides more cooling power per pound than any other gel pack we know of.
- Each Knee Freezie Wrap® gel pack is specially designed to mold to the shape of the knee, ensuring an even distribution of cold and compression over the entire injured area. No other wrap in the world has uniquely designed gel packs for every part of the body.
- The Freezie Wrap® gel formulation is unique in that gel does not squish away from the area when pressure is applied. The gel stays in place, yet is soft and molds to the body at any temperature.
- All Freezie Wraps® use velcro straps for maximum adjustability as well as easy application or removal. This prevents the need for slipping your leg in and out of a tube shaped device, maximizing comfort during use.
Every Freezie Wrap® is made of high quality, medical grade neoprene that gives you superior, adjustable compression for your knee. Our Freezie Wraps® fit perfectly and are extremely durable. They support the muscles and tendons of the joint while gently applying pressure to your inflamed joint at the same time. The unique design with a properly shaped non-migrating gel pack keeps the cold over the entire injured area. Simply pop them into the fridge (or freezer) when not in use and you can re-use them time and again.
Deep Tissue Therapeutic Knee Inferno Wraps®
= Innovative Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®)
Promoting blood flow around an injured area to help the body heal itself is a concept that has been utilized for centuries. Oxygen and nutrients, carried within the blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, recovering from an injury or condition will be delayed...sometimes for a very long period of time.
Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow can be difficult. When the injury is joint related, the challenges are even greater. Traditional methods require your knee to move to promote blood flow, but that same motion that promotes blood flow can also lead to making your pain and condition worse.
- Have you re-injured your knee by returning to work too quickly?
- How many times in the past have you aggravated your knee just trying to perform basic tasks around the home?
- Is your knee injury preventing you from work or activities you love to do?
Most people we deal with tell us these scenarios have happened to them many times in the past. The real challenge is how to promote blood flow to the knee without causing further injury? This goal is further complicated by the fact the knee is involved in the majority of the physical movements we perform each day. calf, hamstring and hip pain can be interconnected and are often experienced in conjunction with one another. Many of the muscles that surround the knee are connected to muscles in the hip and ankle; because of this, knee pain can cause debilitation from the torso down, impeding your lifestyle in a very real way.
An injury to one knee can easily lead to straining in other areas, making an overall recovery hard to initiate. For example, a pain in the right knee can often lead to over-straining of the left knee. Often, knee pain will affect your gait and perhaps even begin to irritate your back as your walking movements compensate for the injury. Most commonly, the injury occurs on the dominant knee, so the risk of straining the other knee becomes increased - this often occurs when climbing stairs as you will naturally force your other knee to handle much more of the workload. The longer the injury (and corresponding pain) persists, the greater the chance that you will sustain more strain from overcompensation, eventually leading to issues in those areas as well. To minimize the potential for secondary injuries, know that it is important to deal with your knee injury quickly and completely.
The truth is that our technology is proprietary and it stands alone to be what we believe is the most effective Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ available. More than 15 years of experience in the field of carbon fiber materials led to the development of the Inferno Wrap®. Not only do we have our own in-house team of experts, we also hire top engineers worldwide to continually improve upon the production and quality control processes.
State of the art production facilities combined with a comprehensive, 7-step quality control process ensures you will receive a product that is designed to be safe and does what it is supposed to do...quickly relieve pain and aid in the recovery from meniscus, acl, pcl, mcl and knee related soft tissue injuries.
Using the Inferno Wrap® is truly a unique experience. Within moments of applying an Inferno Wrap® to your knee, you can feel the healing sensation due to the increase in blood flow deep within the area. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, your injured knee tendons, ligaments, bursa and muscles will feel gently warmed and more relaxed. It's a very soothing sensation and extremely effective.
Inferno Wraps® contain a patented Energy Web® which is flexible and shaped to conform to your body. This Energy Web® emits a uniform wave of perfectly safe electromagnetic energy over its entire surface. This energy travels deep inside to the soft tissue in your knee and stimulates the blood flow needed to heal your injury. It is the electromagnetic energy that is crucial to the healing process.
Electromagnetic energy waves are not heat waves. When they are emitted from the Inferno Wrap® they penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they get to your ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Once they reach the injured area, they are absorbed and quickly converted into heat energy... right at the location of the injury.
While the concept of electromagnetic energy is slowly catching on in North America, the truth is, it is a technology that has been utilized in other societies for decades. Over the past 30 years, researchers in Japan and China have completed extensive studies on the use of the modality and their findings have been impressive. In addition, success has been reported in studies from countries such as Sweden and Germany. Research is continuing and soon, much of North America will know what the Far East and Europe has known for a long time; electromagnetic energy provides a wide range of health benefits for those not only suffering from knee injuries, but for many other ailments as well.
Other options you might find marketed for knee strains are topical medications... you know, the kind you rub into your skin. The problem here is that’s where the medication stops, at your skin, it doesn't reach your injured area - especially when the injury is deep down below the skin and sub-fat layer. Rub as hard as you like, you can’t massage topical creams past your skin. Have you ever gone to a doctor and had him rub something on your skin for a problem below the skin? No, and for good reason - it's just not very effective. I encourage people to try these options, however, as once they compare the effect of an Inferno Wrap® to any topical cream or gel rubs, they quickly realize how much better the Inferno Wrap® truly is.
Benefits attributed to Electromagnetic Energy (the energy used in Inferno Wraps®:
A Summary from Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition.
(amazon.com link) Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin.
Generally it is accepted that heat on soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) provides the following desirable therapeutic effects:
- Electromagnetic heat increases the extensibility of collagen tissues
Tissues heated to 45 degrees Celsius and then stretched exhibit a nonelastic residual elongation of about 0.5 to 0.9 percent that persists after the stretch is removed. This does not occur in these same tissues when stretched at normal tissue temperatures. Therefore 20 stretching sessions can produce a 10 to 18 percentage increase in length of tissues heated and stretched.
Stretching of tissue in the presence of heat would be especially valuable in working with ligaments, joint capsules, tendons, fascia, and synovium that have become scarred, thickened, or contracted. Such stretching at 45 degrees Celsius caused much less weakening in stretched tissues for a given elongation than a similar elongation produced at normal tissue temperatures.
Experiments cited clearly showed low-force stretching could produce significant residual elongation when heat is applied together with stretching or range-of-motion exercises. This is safer than stretching tissues at normal tissue temperatures.
- Electromagnetic heat decreases joint stiffness.
There was a 20 percent decrease in rheumatoid finger joint stiffness at 45 degrees Celsius (112 degrees Fahrenheit) as compared with 33 degrees Celsius (92 degrees Fahrenheit), which correlated perfectly to both subjective and objective observation of stiffness. Speculation has it that any stiffened joint and thickened connective tissues may respond in a similar fashion.
- Electromagnetic heat relieves muscle spasms.
Muscle spasms have long been observed to be reduced through the use of heat, be they secondary to underlying skeletal, joint, or neuropathological conditions. This result is possibly produced by the combined effect of heat on both primary and secondary afferent nerves from spindle cells and from its effects on Golgi tendon organs. The results produced demonstrated their peak effect within the therapeutic temperature range obtainable with electromagnetic heat.
- Electromagnetic heat treatment leads to pain relief.
Pain may be relieved via the reduction of attendant or secondary spasms. Pain is also at times related to ischemia (lack of blood supply) due to tension or spasm that can be improved by the hyperemia that heat-induced vasodilatation produces, thus breaking the feedback loop in which the ischemia leads to further spasm and then more pain.
Heat has been shown to reduce pain sensation by direct action on both free-nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves. In one dental study, repeated heat applications led finally to abolishment of the whole nerve response responsible for pain arising from dental pulp.
Localized electromagnetic therapy using lamps tuned to the 2 to 25 micron waveband is used for the treatment and relief of pain by over 40 reputable Chinese medical institutes.
- Electromagnetic heat increases blood flow.
Heating muscles produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Temperature elevation also produces an increased blood flow and dilation directly in capillaries, arterioles, and venules, probably through direct action on their smooth muscles. The release of bradykinin, released as a consequence of sweat-gland activity, also produces increased blood flow and vasodilatation.
- Electromagnetic heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema, and exudates.
Increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate edema, which can help inflammation, decrease pain, and help speed healing.
- Electromagnetic heat affects soft tissue injury.
Electromagnetic healing is now becoming a leading edge care for soft tissue injuries to promote both relief in chronic or intractable "permanent" cases, and accelerated healing in newer injuries.
The Inferno Wrap®, also known as a BFST® Wrap, is an FDA Registered Medical Device and is suitable for use in hospitals and therapeutic clinics. Since it is completely safe for patients to use themselves, these are now available for use at home. Like the Freezie Wrap®, the Inferno Wrap® shell is made of medical grade neoprene. This neoprene shell helps shape the flexible Energy Web® to mold around the contours of the joint, ensuring there is an even distribution of safe, electromagnetic energy within the coverage area. Once treatment is complete, you also have the option of tightening the straps to provide light compression support for your injured joint. You can also unplug the device from the power supply enabling you to move around the home, office or clinic freely and still use the wrap for support and comfort.
The Inferno Wrap® is an effective treatment tool that will accelerate the body's own healing process. As a side benefit, you will also find it to be very comfortable to wear at any time.
The Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device...
an Essential Tool for Complete Knee Injury Recovery
Well, I must say that I spent a long time searching for this treatment option. I was introduced to a carpenter (I'll call him Paul) about 6 months ago that had designed and created this device especially for his friend Earl that was attempting to recover from a bad knee injury. Earl was instructed by the doctor to put his foot in a plastic garbage bag while sitting. Once the foot was in the bag, he should stretch and strengthen his knee by sliding his foot forward and back across the floor. Earl complained of the intense pain he encountered when the bag inevitably creased and folded thereby jerking his knee, and soon after that, the first Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device was created.
Earl's knee recovered 10 years ago, but Paul continues making more and more of the Knee-Flex® devices every year - mostly for therapy clinics and hospitals in Canada that keep asking for his Knee-Flex® Device.
Knee-Stretching Without the Strain
This is the third and final essential tool for complete meniscus injury recovery. The Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device already has a ten year successful track record in Canadian physical therapy clinics and hospitals. It is already proven to be highly valued by Canadian physical therapists as a major recovery tool for patients suffering from meniscus injuries, knee ligament injuries and post knee-surgery recovery.
The value of this device cannot be underestimated. Anyone suffering from true knee pain knows the importance of flexing the knee joint smoothly and without excessive load. The Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device operates without the use of tension bands or any added force aside from the weight of your own leg. Basically, if you are recovering from a serious knee injury, this device is the first thing you would use to start gaining flexibility back in the knee joint.
As you slowly start to use the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device more frequently, you should find that your knee recovery will accelerate as well. The increased joint flexing will help your knee connective tissue to regain elasticity; the motion will increase blood flow to the recovering injury as well, aiding in the healing process. The Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device is what lies between bedridden immobility and crutches. Using crutches too quickly can be detrimental to your recovering knee, as many patients can certainly attest. A quick slip on the crutch can easily result in your bad knee bearing your full body weight, often causing a worse re-injury or perhaps a fall.
Before making the transition to crutches, physical therapists prescribe gentle stretching of an injured knee. They don't prescribe this to annoy you - it is in fact the most important part of knee injury recovery. You probably know of someone that chose not to do these stretches as it is common - and they paid a high price for it. By not listening to the therapist (ie. not stretching), there is a huge chance of re-injuring your knee or even sustaining an injury greater than the original injury ever was.
Using the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device not only helps minimize the growth of scar tissue, but it also increases the elasticity and strength of the joint. After using the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device over time, your knee joint will be better prepared to handle higher and higher loads. Eventually you will reach a stage where your knee joint can handle crutches or standing for longer and longer period of time. This is the final stage of recovery and depending on age, the nature of the injury, your weight and many other factors, it can take the longest time to complete. But remember, for knee injuries, it pays to be patient! Rushing your knee injury recovery almost never pays.
When combined with Freezie Wrap® therapy and Inferno Wrap® therapy, the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device allows you to comprehensively treat meniscus injuries, knee ligament injuries and knee strain with the most effective home treatments that are available.
The Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device is an FDA Registered Medical Device and is suitable for repetitive, industrial usage in hospitals and therapeutic clinics. This device is deemed safe to use without medical assistance and as such is also available for use at home. This device is manufactured with a durable, easy glide track and is constructed almost completely from Canadian hardwoods.
Every Single Day We Receive Calls From Customers Who Simply Want To Thank Us For Introducing Them To Our Amazing Products!
We have had many medical professionals and pro athletes call or write to tell us about their positive healing experiences after using our Inferno Wraps®, Freezie Wraps® and Knee-Flex® devices in their medical practice and on the playing field.
To begin, we have been working with a Therapist from a V.A. Hospital in Oklahoma for the past couple of years, helping her patients overcome a number of physical ailments. This therapist often refers her patients to us so they can order their therapy products to use in conjunction with the therapy they receive from the V.A. Hospital. Over the years, we have offered strong support in helping military personnel, active and retired, manage the challenging physical injuries they face. We welcome those, who are serving or have served, and are dealing with painful injuries and physical conditions to contact us to see how we can help.
My Knee Is At Least 85% Better!
Thank you so much for your Courtesy email. I have used the wraps, alternating the treatments as your information advised. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. For over a month, I could not get up out of my chair without assistance and I thought my knee was never going to heal. I have used them for 9 full days and I am able to get up by myself. I have never had any problem like this before and I have a new appreciation for the disabled. This treatment has been unbelievably successful for me and I have told everyone I know about this product. It has been like going from night to day....I am at least 85% better.
Thank you again for these most wonderful products. I having been thanking my wonderful God and Savior of this universe for you people. I hope you have a wonderful day and may God bless you personally and prosper your company abundantly!!

Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
Another satisfied customer of ours is a Certified Rehabilitation Nurse by the name of Ann. She was so impressed with the ease of use and the results she achieved with the Inferno Wrap®, that she decided to send us a testimonial as well.
"I sustained a re-injury to the lateral right knee in a hiking incident on a wet path. Initially, I treated with anti-inflammatory medication, ice, elevation, and a knee brace. This injury was very similar to the previous knee injury, so I thought my knee would without seeking orthopedic evaluation. I started using a heating pad with a massage feature to relieve the pain and found that the heat helped, but did not radiate deep enough into my knee.
Since I am a Certified Rehabilitation RN, I started researching the Internet looking for a product that would provide electromagnetic energy. I was happy to discover the Inferno Knee Wrap. I have been using it several times a day for several weeks and I am now pain free and functionally able to resume all activities. I still continue to use the Inferno Knee Wrap on a daily basis in hopes that I can prevent another knee injury.
Thank you for such a wonderful product"

Results may vary. Always seek the advice of your physician
in choosing the best treatment option for you.
The feedback we have received from so many people who have used our treatment options as part of their healing therapy has been overwhelmingly positive. It can take a comprehensive approach when dealing with serious pain and discomfort...and the Inferno Wrap® and Freezie Wrap® certainly play critical roles in this aspect.
If you're tired of being told that resting, drugs and surgery are the only answers to your knee pain...Be optimistic, because there are effective alternatives for you.
We will never claim our products will work for everyone. That is simply impossible to achieve. Everyone has a different capacity for healing and different circumstances behind their pain and discomfort.
But what I can say is this...we have helped tens of thousands of patients in the past six years. During this time, our refund rate has held steady at an astonishingly low 6%.
That means that for every 100 people who try our products, 94 of these individuals should be experiencing moderate to significant relief. The odds are certainly in your favor that you too will achieve relief from much of the pain and inflammation that is currently burdening your lifestyle. This fact alone speaks volumes to the effectiveness of our solutions.
Based on feedback we do receive, the reason for the low return rate comes down to two factors...
High quality components & strict manufacturing standards
Our line of products were designed in-house and we have full control over the production process. This gives us the ability to source higher-end components and to implement design enhancements fairly quickly. Our customers are always providing feedback to us and we work hard to meet many of their suggestions. This is how our company has grown to be so successful.
