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'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 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.

I have been using the inferno and freezie on my knee (torn meniscus) for several weeks now and have been very happy with the results. Less pain and less inflammation.
I have been using the inferno before a work out and up to 3 times a day. I use th[See Full Review]e freezie after my work out or if I feel my knee is inflamed.
I am very pleased that I found your advertisement on my facebook page. I have tell everyone about this product and I can't imagine how my knee will feel in another month. I also use it on my other knee for arthritis. It seems to help.
Thanks again and I will continue to endorse your product. Because I believe it works.
I showed my physical therapist your product and he was impressed.
l think that your knee inferno wrap is tops! l don't think that l would be able to walk with out it
Heat (energy) is best and people don't realize after swelling goes down, it fixes (muscle and soft tissue).
Couldn't recommend it more highly.

I just wanted to send a huge thank you to your company.
I suffered a fully torn Achilles and unfortunately the system for retired Army officers is not very good -it was 5 weeks before I was seen by a surgeon. He was furious -- but we had to take th[See Full Review]e non surgical route.
After 12 weeks I was cleared and sent to physical therapy - they were dumbfounded with my progress. I shared your products and gracefully explained I would prefer to trust my health to a process that works rather than continue to gamble with a system that is a crap shoot at best. The Doctor agreed!
I love my progress and I work hard each day using the Ankle wrap heat and cold plus the knee flex. Thank you for great products - from a person who DID NOT HAVE SURGERY for a fully ruptured Achilles and the PT is dumbfounded with my progress.
I am so far ahead of my surgical repaired contemporaries.
This is my first testimonial and it would not occurred -- but when I lost my power connector for my heat ankle wrap it was replaced ASAP with no cost I was floored - thank you for mission impossible!![Close Review]

I am always amazed by companies who still deliver true customer service to their clients, it blows me away.
Me and my husband both have knee issues and would like to purchase additional knee wraps in the future as they truly make a difference afte[See Full Review]r using them.
I have recommended your website to my physical therapist for his other patients as he saw a substantial difference in my mobility and decreased usage of pain killers.
Thanks again for your superior customer service and attention to detail and follow through. It is sad to say, but in this day and age those are rare qualities to find in a company. Make it a great day!
I purchased the Inferno wrap and Freezie wrap to treat a chronic Achilles tendonosis (MICROSCOPIC TEARS OF THE TENDON AT THE INSERTION). During the later part of 2008 I was experiencing a lot of tight muscle and tendons and usually working out (runni[See Full Review]ng) tired and not properly warmed up and limber. I started the new year with good intention and determined to work on stretching that included following a home yoga program. I am familiar with yoga but admit that I was too aggressive with the stretching that comes from the 'downward dog' position. I believe this aggravated an already existing condition in the Achilles insertion area, this combined with the stress of a late January 5KM road race caused enough pain in the Achilles tendon to force me to discontinue running. I sought medical attention from my family physician who referred me to physiotherapy. Through the early stage of therapy I continued to do regular bike workouts. Unfortunately the pain increased to the point that I had to stop both running and cycling. I attended physiotherapy for just over two months going once a week receiving massage to the injured area, ultrasound, cortisone by patch and ice. I was religious in following the gentle stretching and strengthening routine at home between physio visits. After these two months with little improvement they released me with the instruction to continue with the stretching, strength exercises and ice. I was still in pain and could not run or cycle without causing further damage, walking was painful. I search for other solutions and found the information on the MendMeShop web site. Although skeptical, I purchased the wraps out of desperation, received the product, read all the literature for use and started into a daily routine. Within 7 days I started to experience a reduction in the constant pain. Within 9 days I was walking without a constant reminder of the injury. I tried doing a ride and although the short 13 mile ride was enjoyable I started to feel the injury flair up again. The injury is not completely healed but the progress I am experiencing gives me hope that with a continued discipline of home treatment using the products, gentle stretching and the use of wearing a brace on my foot while sleeping to prevent the tendon from retracting, will in time bring about the full healthy healing of the injured area. I have found that you really have to be in tune with what you are feeling during the gentle stretching and often back off the stretch so as not to cause repetitive injury to the already weakened area of the Achilles insertion.[Close Review]
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 assistanc[See Full Review]e 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!!
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.
In February of this year, I injured my knee while exercising. Since I lost my health benefits through my job due to the economy, I wasn't able to afford a professional diagnosis.
The outside area of my left knee was swollen, stiff and painful and [See Full Review]I could not put any weight on that area. After mowing my lawn, gardening, exercising or any other physical activity the swelling, stiffness and pain were much worse. I was using a bag of frozen crinkle cut carrots attached by a rubber band around my knee to help alleviate the pain & swelling - not a very high tech solution!
I searched online to find what if anything I could do myself to rehab and repair my injury and thankfully I found your web site.
From the information your site provided, I determined I had a torn meniscus as the symptoms associated with that were exactly what I was experiencing. I ordered the Knee Therapy Kit, received it in less than one week and began using the kit immediately.
It has now been 7 days since I started using the kit and I have already noticed results.
My swelling has gone down, the pain is gone and the stiffness is occasional instead of constant. I am so delighted with these results as I am very active and this knee problem was really affecting my lifestyle. Not only that, but I was looking forward to doing a lot of surfing this summer and I am excited as I believe I will be able to without any problems!
I will be telling everyone about your web site and products and that is saying a lot because it is rare and refreshing for me to find products that work so 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]
I sustained a re-injury to the lateral right...
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 knee brace. This injury was very similar to the previous knee injury, so I thought my kne[See Full Review]e would heal without seeking orthopedic evaluation. I started using a heating pad with a massage feature to relieve pain and found that the heat helped tremendously, 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 radiant heat. I was happy to discover your 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 using the Inferno Knee Wrap on a daily basis in hopes that I can prevent another knee injury.
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.
Have been using the knee wrap for about 5 days & it has actually already made a difference.
First, there is a lot less pain when walking and secondly the external knee temperature (feeling by hand- not very scientific) is now almost the same for bo[See Full Review]th knees. When I started with the wrap the right knee was obviously the hotter knee indicating inflammation, I guess.
I have been using the wrap three times a day for 20 minutes on and at least two hours off with at least 15 minutes each day on the stationary bike. I'm retired & have the time.
The wrap seems really well made which it should considering the price and it is large enough to fit the largest knee. I also like the three temperature levels and certainly the built in 20 minute shut off. [Close Review]

What I can report is that the treatments make a difference.
I have a bone spur. My routine is to start at 6:00 am because in the morning is when it hurts the most. I have discovered a way to wrap my foot with both the planter ligament wrap and th[See Full Review]e Achilles tendon wrap at the same time. I do the cold for 20 minutes, let it rest for 20 minutes, then do the hot for 20 minutes.
While the pain does not go away, it does go from excruciating to tolerable. Each day I'm able to do a little more in the way of household chores I am even starting to go swimming again. I look out at the garden and dream of the day I can get back to work there.
I told my podiatrist about your product and he said that is exactly what he wants me to do, cold then hot, plenty of water. He asked for information about your products, so I am taking it with me at my next visit.
So, yes, all in all, I am happy with your product. But mostly I am pleased with your company. Like this letter for example, I am sure that you have hundreds of customers, but you make me feel like I'm the only one, or the most important. I feel like you care that I am experiencing pain and you want your product to help me. I wish you much success with your business.
Yours Truly, Peggy
Peggy emailed us 3 weeks after her first comments with a promising update:
My bone spur has improved to the point that I use the treatments only once a day in the morning, with an occasional treatment in the evening after dinner.
And there are days when there is no pain at all throughout the day!![Close Review]

I've been using the leg inferno wrap to heal my hamstring I recently injured. By no means was it a major injury and it has healed fairly well to this point where I can say I am near 100% recovery.
I am no longer in the recovery phase and I'm exerci[See Full Review]sing again and restrengthening it. My weightlifting is already back to normal loads[Close Review]
I also wanted to thank you so much for...
I also wanted to thank you so much for something you casually mentioned. In an email, you mentioned that I might want to look into a test to see if I had one leg shorter than the other because my knee pain was gone. Guess what- you were RIGHT! I wen[See Full Review]t to an orthopaedic specialist who focuses on the foot and ankle. He was very casual and said I was healing fine. I insisted that he send me to someone who could make a brace of some sort. I can see that the same problem (posterior tibial tendonitis) was going to return if we did not get to the root of the problem. I insisted that he at least send me to a person. Fortunately, he sent me to a certified Orthodist. She found a slight discrepency in my right foot. (That's the one with the cast on it.) She is getting new orthodics for me- PLUS I asked about a brace that could keep my feet from over pronating. The Orthopaedic specialist said he could put me in an Arizona brace. I was molded for the brace yesterday.
I truly appreciate your suggestion. No other doctor would have thought to check into it. I am now swimming and have no more pain in the right ankle.
You have been a true blessing to me- in more ways than you will ever know. I know God had you pick up the phone when I called.
Again- THANKS for your kindness and expert advice. Don't forget to send me a link so I can write a review. Now I am on my way to being healthy again.[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.

My husband, who is in his 50's was feeling...
My husband, who is in his 50's was feeling pain in his Achilles on one foot. He kept walking on it till it became inflamed and impossible to walk on.
My husband sought out help from our Chiropractor, the treatments were very expensive and he could[See Full Review] only get one a day.
He couldn't walk on it at all. Just moving any part of his body caused him great pain. Going to see anyone would prove unworkable. I couldn't get him in the car as he could not even move his leg.
I researched Achilles tendon injury on line. I found an article about the Inferno Wrap. The cost would be far less than trips to the Doctor.
It was only a matter of days before he was able to get out of bed once we started the treatments as recommended. It was a week and he was off the crutches. He was able to get back to work after three weeks. He still uses the inferno boot when his Achilles feels sore.
I am very grateful for your products and highly recommend them.[Close Review]

I still am amazed at how the inferno wrap helped!
I don't remember if I told you this, but about 20 years ago I had orthoscopic surgery on my knee. It never got back to normal.
Lost a lot of flexibility in that knee and suffered with pain most[See Full Review]ly at night. Thought it was arthritis. It felt out of joint and I was painful to straighten it at night. And when I would get up out of bed or after sitting for awhile I would have to "ease" into position to be able to walk on it.
Last fall, I injured my knee in the garden. It was very painful to bear weight on it. In fact I was scooting around the house in an office chair on wheels. The doctor said the 'popping' in my knee was due to out-of-place ligament from the orthoscopic surgery.
I started using the inferno wrap and ice wrap alternatively and still can't believe how fast my knee heeled. I no longer use either.
About a week ago I started doing water aerobics and it feels soooo good!
I do have a lot of arthritis, and it's bone-on-bone. However the pain in straightening that knee is no longer there! All those years of pain seem more like a bad dream! It's wonderful to be able to get up from sitting and move freely! Now my goal is to strengthen my knee with exercise.
Approximately 19.4 million visits to physicians' offices in the US per year are due to knee problems.
The knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to a variety of injuries.
Oral medications can mask the pain but do not aid in the healing of knee injuries.
Most knee injuries can be successfully treated without surgery.
Sadly, regardless of treatment, ACL injuries in high-school youths are associated with a 10-fold increased risk for degenerative knee arthritis later in life.
