Babies are born without knee caps. They appear when the child reaches 2-6 years of age.
The knee is the largest articular joint in the body.
Each knee has two tough, rubbery menisci that act as shock absorbers in the joint.
One meniscus sits on the inside of the knee joint and is referred to as the medial meniscus. The other meniscus rests on the outer part and is referred to as the lateral meniscus.
Arthritis is one of the most common causes of knee bursitis.
BFST is a highly effective treatment for knee bursitis.
Runner's knee is not exactly a condition in itself. It sums up a multitude of knee disorders with different causes all centering around the kneecap.
Obesity and improper body alignment are responsible for many knee injuries.
Optimal knee treatment includes avoiding activity, icing the inflammation, gently stretching and warming the area.
BFST treatments can speed ACL, PCL and meniscus recovery significantly.
I think you guys have excellent customer service. I use the Knee inferno wrap every night and first thing in the morning and it does make my knee feel better and less stiff.

I'm regularly using both Leg and Plantar Inferno Wraps now and I'm already seeing extreme/good results.
Basically I'm doing lots of running now and enjoy competing 5k's & 10k's. Hopefully full marathon soon and to achieve better results I need to[See Full Review] train hard; consequences [of this] are typical running injuries.
Obviously I'm treating my Plantar Fascia [with the Plantar Inferno Wrap], and using the Leg Inferno Wrap I'm treating my calf and hamstring. Both Inferno Wraps I should say are user friendly / easy to use except you need to be near electrical outlet to operate this gadget.
I should say this equipment is a big help to the runners world.[Close Review]

The cold (Knee Freezie Wrap) & hot (Knee Inferno) wrap combo, along with the knee-flex allowed me to get back to work in half the time I was expecting.
My older son injured his knee & I was able to help him during his visit. He was amazed, & had mo[See Full Review]re recovery progress in a week than he had the 2 weeks prior.
Just a little note to thank you for your wonderful products-they really work.
Some months ago I was diagnosed with a meniscus tare, after seeing the specialist and getting an injection which only temporarily took away the pain. Facing the possibili[See Full Review]ty of having to have surgery I looked in the internet for an alternative treatment-when I came across Mend Me Shop.
Before I started the treatment it was painful and difficult to walk, now I am walking an average of 14,000 steps a day without pain or discomfort.
So far, the products seem to be working fine. I have used both but mostly the Freezie Wrap for the inflammation from the meniscus injury.
I do like the fact that the Freezie Wrap makes it easier for me to ice my knee than using anything else

I would be happy to let you know that I am VERY pleased with the Knee Inferno Wrap that I purchased from your company in June. I suffered from recurring knee problems, pain and swelling when I would exercise or stand too long. I used it as instruc[See Full Review]ted 3-4 times a day along with light cycling and swimming, my knee has improved dramatically!!
I absolutely LOVE the Inferno Wrap and continue to use it when I overdo it and feel any discomfort in my knee. It truly does seem to speed up the recovery process. I would recommend your products to others.
I have only used the inferno heat wrap for about 2 weeks for a fairly significant achilles tendon problem that has plagued me for several months. A recent MRI shows partial tears and an irregular shape to part of the tendon.
It seems to me I am ge[See Full Review]tting amazing results already from use of the products I purchased. I am back to playing tennis on a limited basis and realize I need to show restraint but it certainly appears I am on the mend.
I am extremely impressed by the professionalism of your company and the personnel that I have talked to in the ordering process.[Close Review]

I purchased the Knee Inferno Wrap to compliment my MCL recovery program. I believe the Knee Inferno Wrap product greatly aided in the healing process and accelerated my ability to regain functionality in the knee joint by utilizing it regularly duri[See Full Review]ng the early days of my recovery.
Your product did meet my personal expectations and i would recommend it to anyone seeking a solution to aid in the healing of soft tissue injuries.[Close Review]

I purchased the Inferno Knee Wrap and I cannot tell you how much I love this product. I have a misalignment in my back and big toe of my right foot - which caused my left knee to swell.
I used the Inferno on my knee and it is now fully healed.
You saved me from a possible knee surgery! Thank you Mendmeshop - many times over![Close Review]
I'm 52 & in fairly good shape, I mountain...
I'm 52 & in fairly good shape, I mountain bike for hours - at least twice a week. I kayak offshore for hours twice a week. I also snorkle & work out.
So when my son invited me to play paint ball, my leg muscles were strong enough to do what my mind [See Full Review]told them...to a point where my left leg (the one that got bent backwards playing little league baseball 29 years ago) became so painful the next day.
I was shocked & amazed how I had gone from in great shape to a hobbling old man.
A bit of research I re-learned hot before & cold after a workout/activity.
Cold packs are cheap at the drug store & heat pads are too, but destroyed a few of these in the microwave oven to heat. I found the frozen packs seemed a bit too much & the heat pads ether nearly burned me or wasn't hot enough to get deep.
I then went back & ordered your hot & cold products AND MY PRODUCTS GOT HERE IN MAUI IN TWO DAYS ARRIVING ASTONISHINGLY ON A SATURDAY !!!!
I now heat up both my knees before a workout or just as good treatment & cool 'em down after. I feel like I'm 99% better but I'll continue to use these products as I feel it'll keep me from getting a knee injury.
The relief is so wonderful...I paddle for hours and I have no issues.[Close Review]
I'm sorry I missed your call to tell you how...
I'm sorry I missed your call to tell you how pleased I am with the [inferno] wrap. I've only had it six days and there is some improvement already.
I sprained a ligament in both knees a month ago doing aerobics, and was beginning to feel I would ne[See Full Review]ver heal. The thermal wrap is just wonderful. I will certainly recommend it to anyone I know that needs such treatment.
My husband will be eternally grateful for your product - he has to do the daily vacuuming from our exotic birds and our 3 dogs.
I just want you to know what miraculous relief your products gave me. I had a torn ligament near the inside ankle of my left foot (called "posterior tibial tendonitis" after a long series of non-effective treatments).
I r[See Full Review]eceived this injury last OCTOBER!!! (This is August!) My podiatrist had put me in an immovable "boot" the first 2 months (from about Nov. 1, 2011, to Jan 8, 2012. Then he put me in a lesser type of brace till the middle of May. I was not getting any better, so he put me in a "permanent" molded brace which supposedly would do the trick (according to him).
But I asked the one who fitted me with this brace how long he thought I would need it, and he plainly said, "The rest of your life!" I yelled, "NOOOOOOOOOO! I will not!!! I WILL BE HEALED!" However, I didn't know how.
I then began researching on the internet some other means of healing this type of injury. I found out that tendons do not heal well by themselves, so all I was doing was propping up my injury to a lifestyle of pain and hardship. By the grace of God, I had acquired a motorized chair (I called it my "Chariot") to use, which was a life-saver for about 9 months, or I would have been virtually apartment-bound in this retirement complex where we now live. So I was grateful for the chariot, but it wasn't helping my injured foot to heal. I thought it surely MUST BE healing, but that brace-fitter gave me a rude awakening that it was not, nor would it ever be! Wow!
So I researched on the internet any possible alternatives for healing my foot.
The MENDMESHOP had the most promising way of healing torn tendons, or tendonitis, that I could find. However, we had already spent lots of money on braces, etc., so I didn't purchase it right away. But that allowed me to see that truly, I was NOT getting any better, even in that fancy, molded-to-my foot-and-calf brace. So after more careful research and printing out the articles in your website to study, my husband and I agreed to take the plunge and order the products.
Right off the bat, I found that this was a company that was honest in its dealings, because your sales rep/counselor said it had been too long since my original injury for the Freezie Wrap to be effective, and I only needed the Inferno Wrap.
That was a big PLUS in my opinion, which indicated to me that MENDMESHOP was not just out to SELL if I would buy. I even argued somewhat with the rep, but he stood firm, saying I didn't need the Freezie at this point! So I followed his advice and he was so right!
I received my Inferno Wrap on July 14 and began using it right away. I used the Inferno Wrap at Medium intensity, at about 2 PM and 11 PM. I followed that routine faithfully for about 10 days, and then increased the procedure to 3 times per day for about 5 more days.
On August 2 (only 2 weeks and 5 days into the program) I became truly healed! TRULY HEALED, can you imagine?!? I could hardly believe it, but it was so! There was no pain even without my brace on. And I have not worn the brace since! For a couple of days I still used my "Chariot" for the longer walks I had to do, but then I began leaving it behind and walking normally -- no brace, no pain, no problem! I've even been shopping now without having to use one of those motorized chairs to get around. Thank you SO MUCH!!!
I hope you will use this letter to encourage others like me to "take the plunge" and order the equipment and do the routine. It works, and I'd be happy to help anyone do it. In fact, yesterday as I was shopping, I met a woman who had a "boot" on just like the one I first had. I could sypathize greatly with her, so I told her all about you and how to access you on the internet. I pray she will.
I had suffered (really suffered!) with Achilles Tendonitis for almost two years, and spent much time and money going to orthopedists and finally a podiatrist. That last visit made me feel there was no hope, but I decided to go on the internet and I [See Full Review]found the MendMeShop.
I read about the Inferno Wrap, and decided to call and ask more. I figured that the cost of this would be a drop in the bucket to what I'd already spent in co-pays over the past couple of years.
The person at the MendMeShop was knowledgable and very helpful. She advised me on a plan of use, and offered to be a continuing resource for me.
Once I received the Inferno Wrap I followed the advice I'd been given. I used it on my elevated ankle/foot three times a day for 20 minutes each time. (First applying ice for 10 minutes when my ankle was particularly swollen.) Within 3 months of faithful use, I was able to walk without pain. What a relief! And now whenever I feel the slightest indication of discomfort, I use the Inferno Wrap for 20 minutes -- sometimes twice a day.
I have recommended the MendMeShop to friends without hesitation. I feel so appreciative that I found the website on the internet. I also told my primary physician about it so that he could tell other patients to try this wonderful resource.
Today I'm writing from Georgia where I am visiting friends and family. Guess what I packed to come with me?! Right! My Inferno Wrap!
You all met and exceeded - not just my expectations, which were pretty modest, but my hopes at a time when I felt almost desperate!
I have had my Inferno Wrap for nine days and I love it. I noticed a small difference in only two days. I have a small tear in my meniscus and was in pain most of the time. My knee would slip a lot and it was extremely painful. After one treatment[See Full Review] I noticed the difference. I am looking forward to how much better I will get after I really use it for a period of time.[Close Review]
Hello April, thank you for your follow up...
Hello April, thank you for your follow up email.
I recently purchased the inferno wrap July 5th 2012 and I am using it diligently, I have seen positive results already in just a few weeks. I no longer need to walk with a cane. I would like to than[See Full Review]k MendMeShop ever so much for giving back me my life. I will continue to use the inferno wrap and I have spread the good word to all my friends on how MendMeShop product has helped me.
I would like you to know that after landing on my left knee sharply enough to merit two weeks on crutches 12 weeks ago, I am now 95% better.
The knee isn't fully recovered in strength, but it is pain free and able to go up and down stairs normally [See Full Review]now and in general work as it should. Deep knee bends aren't a recommended activity just yet, though it is comfortable to do that motion at some times but not at others. In any event, your inferno wrap was part of my recovery process, and I feel a very important one!
Between the information on your website and the wrap ? and the RICE! - I seem to have healed far better than I originally expected, though it has taken time and patience, and I was cautious so as not to re-injure it! Thank you. Just wanted you to know![Close Review]

I am writing to tell you how pleased I have been with not only your products but your commitment to the product and service aspects.
You folks are attentive, knowledgeable and most definitely out for the good of the customer!
Many years ago I tol[See Full Review]d my own staff that "Because of the Customer We Exist." This means more in the 21st century when clients have choices - offering a top-notch product is expected, but offering a superior product with superior service means even more. I can't thank you enough for helping me through a knee injury!
The inferno wrap did a great job on my knee and saved me from surgery!
I am still using it but on my non-injured knee. I noticed no cracking and popping noises (from climbing stairs) after treatment of my left (injured) knee, so now I am treating t[See Full Review]he right knee as well.
I began to have acute tendinitis in my ankle just before Thanksgiving of 2012, and I was told that it might last for 6 months. On line, I found a product from the Mend Me Shop that I thought might be helpful for my condition. I did not have any swell[See Full Review]ing, so I thought that heat would aide in healing the tendonitis. I ordered the Inferno Wrap.
From the time I got it...probably after having the condition for two months with no end in sight for the severe tendonitis, I began to use the Inferno Wrap four times a day. By the end of February, my tendonitis subsided, and I was able to walk my daughter down the aisle for her wedding in March. I had been told I could have a cast or a boot to ease the pain; however, I knew that I didn't want to walk down the aisle in a cast or a boot. After the treatments with the Inferno Wrap, I had no problems with pain.
I give Mend Me Shop and the Inferno Wrap credit for ending my pain, so that I was able to walk my daughter down the aisle on March 23[Close Review]
