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.
My knee is completely healed and I am back more than 100%. I had surgery on that knee several years ago and it had not been very flexible since then. Between the ice wrap and the inferno wrap, my knee is better than it was before I injured it this time.
I had been to the doctor and had scheduled an MRI about the time I ordered the ice and Inferno wraps. I kept moving the MRI date up because I could tell my knee was beginning to heal. I cancelled my MRI appointment a couple of weeks ago and I am back to my full workout schedule.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful product. I tell everyone who will listen how great your product is and the excellent results I received. I still use both products every day. I have arthritis in my right shoulder and will be ordering the shoulder wraps in the near future.
Again, thank you for a product that has saved me hundreds maybe even thousands of dollars had surgery been the result of the MRI, not to mention the risks associated with surgery. I am a lifelong fan!

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.
You saved me from a possible knee surgery! Thank you Mendmeshop - many times over![Close Review]

Your Inferno Wrap is a great success and I am doing very well. The injury happened on Feb. 12, so that is almost five weeks ago.
Doctor gave me three options, none of them acceptable to me.
From the first day I used this wrap I could sleep again a[See Full Review]nd pain is not a big problem anymore. I can feel that healing is not complete and I have to be careful not to reinjure that meniscus, but at least I have my life under control again. Living alone at age 90 makes that most important!
I am recommending your products to everyone in my family and friends. They should be part of a well rounded first aid supply in every home. I am planning on ordering another item next month.
Thank you for the courteous manner in which you conduct your business![Close Review]
Thank you for spending time answering my...
Thank you for spending time answering my questions and concerns on the Knee Inferno Wrap and wrist products and how to use them. I appreciate that, and I am impressed with your company's personal availability to personally talk with customers. In a[See Full Review] fast pace, seemingly no care, 'all out for my benefit' mentality in our society it is refreshing to know I can go on-line and there are people doing business who do care for their product and the people buying them.
I went on-line to find help in treating my very painful meniscus and other issues Arthroscopic surgery on my right knee, that were more severe that my left knee issues had been, so I could find help in speeding up my recovery and get back on my feet again. Having had the same surgery on my left knee only 6 months prior, I was not able to recover as fast as my left knee had not yet fully recovered enough to take the full load of both knees. The Dr. said nothing about recovery only that I could not even put toe weight on my right knee for 4 weeks. So, with my left knee still in recovery this made life extremely difficult. So much so, I had to go to a wheel chair so I would not ruin either of my knees or my back which is suffering from degenerative discs. My knee issues stem from aging and over-use over the years. They are just wearing out.
I am an active person and was not going to consign myself to a wheel chair for the rest of my life. I had no access to physical therapy treatments in my personal situation. So, I took the bull by the horns and got busy finding out what I could do to help myself recover faster and get back in action physically. And I found your company.
I started my personal quest on Internet, which is all I was able to do physically at the time, and found your company, MendMeShop.com. I read all your info and was impressed with what I read and felt comfortable that you were genuine and were out to help me fully recover. The fully guaranteed refund was a plus to me so that I would not spend a lot lf money for something that I would be stuck with and as well did me no good.
You also had a personal way to contact your company to discuss any concerns I might have in using it. You also had expedited mailing so that I could have your product in a few days so I could get started in my recovery. I was willing to pay the extra mailing cost to get the product faster. You really came through on your end and I had my Inferno Knee Wrap in just a few days. That really firmed up to me that you back up your claims about your product and that you truly cared about me and so I could get onto faster recovery sooner.
After receiving the Inferno Knee Wrap, I was having personal issues in how often to use the Knee Wrap and so I called you to help me with this. I felt that the knee wrap was helping me, but I was finding that I could not use it to the fullest degree the instructions mentioned. You helped me and told me to call you back. From your recommendations, I started experimenting on my own to see what would work for me and I found a workable solution for me personally. Each person is unique and what works for one person may not work for another. So, I recommend not giving up and returning this product until you find what works for you.
Because my knee issues are so severe, it will take longer than I want it to, but I am plugging away and using the Inferno Knee Wrap along with stationery bike exercise and I am seeing progress each day.
Thank you for being there when I needed help in recovery of Arthroscopic Knee Surgery. I appreciate you and your company. [Close Review]
Your Knee Inferno Wrap arrived in the UK last...
Your Knee Inferno Wrap arrived in the UK last Monday and my son has been using it for the past week. He has just emailed to say it is making a great difference already and he is able to bend his knee much further than before.
He is delighted as the[See Full Review] leg feels stronger too and he will continue to use it while he under goes physio which starts tomorrow.
Fingers crossed his recovery will be quicker than expected because he has been able to use your product.
We thank you for your excellent product and will keep you updated over the following weeks.
A follow up received from Kim a few months later:
The wrap continued to do its good work and my son made a really quick recovery much to the surprise of the medical professional.
He has now returned to work with full mobility although he continues to use the wrap prior to excercise as it warms the muscles thoroughly.
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 and Freezie because on August 28th my life changed, I was in Florida at the beach taking my last skimboarding run when I heard the dreaded pop and hit from behind. I had in fact after an MRI 2 weeks later ruptured my Achilles [See Full Review]Tendon 100%.
I was devastated...being 50, an athlete, former track record holder, my life came to a complete standstill. I found your site from an Achilles site with Blogs and I am very grateful.
My current condition is nothing short of a miracle.
I had surgery two and half weeks ago , surgery was open to repair tendon and was one hour 20 minutes. I was placed in a hard cast with toes down for 1 week, I observed all rules and used crutches 100%.
After 1 week cast was removed then I was back in my air cast, I could put absolutely no pressure whatsoever on the repaired leg for 4 days.
I received your products and immediately used them. The inferno wrap and freezie are my favorites, I just drove home 200 miles with the inferno wrap on via a 12 volt inverter.
Last Saturday night I went out in a flip flop with the injured foot to just get used to having some weight on it. This past week i experimented with different shoes and sneakers and when I attended my second PT session all the swelling and bruising was gone and I had great side to side motion still working on stretching the achilles.
Yesterday I drove with sneakers on and walked 1.5 miles on my sons college campus with no crutch, can, etc. Today I wore docksiders and drove home another 200 miles, I am now laying in bed with the Inferno on my left foot which has the intact achilles but it is sore due to disruption of weight from injury, at the same time I have the Freezie on my repaired leg.
After reading all the stories on the internet and talking with people as well as knowing of the seriousness of this injury, I believe your products have played a key role to getting me back on my feet and my life headed back to normal 1000 times faster than the average achilles rupture patient.
Thank You so much for great products and superior service as well as unprecedented guarantee. I will let you know when I am walking normal without any limp[Close Review]

I've been meaning to write a review for a while...
The knee Inferno Wrap did a lot to help me and actually got me back to walking normally.
Prior to the Inferno, I was limping really bad to the point where I probably should have gotten crutches or[See Full Review] a wheelchair because of the pain. Though I do walk normally, I still have issues with my knee and in some rare instances. I've just started thinking about doing minor exercises to keep in shape.
I do want to say thank you for the Inferno and what your company has created as a substitute for surgery for me. I was injured in September, and started using the wrap that same month, By the beginning of November I felt so much better it was incredible.
I doubt my knee is completely healed but it is a definite improvement.[Close Review]

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'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]

The products have been great for my athletic injuries (achilles tear and a meniscus tear). The products have definitely helped me recover faster and get back to my active lifestyle.

I just LOVE your products and have great respect for a company that actually stands behind their products! GREAT JOB!!!
Customer service was FANTASTIC! They diagnosed an issue and sent out a replacement part before I could blink! The part solved [See Full Review]the problem and I'm an EXTREMELY HAPPY customer!
You folks make great stuff, ship quickly, and respond fast if I ever have any questions. You just can't do better than that!
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 wanted to take a minute and write to thank you so much for your extreme kindness and accommodation to help me replace my lost Inferno adapter.
Your products literally do heal and can help prevent surgery. I am doing well with my Knee Freezie Wr[See Full Review]ap and my Knee Inferno Wrap. A heating pad doesn't come close to how the Inferno Wrap works.
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 just love the Knee Inferno wrap. I honestly feel it has helped my recovery tremendously. I also get acupuncture treatments for it as well as message.
Honestly though, the knee Inferno wrap plays the biggest role in my treatment.
You are righ[See Full Review]t in saying it's not an overnight miracle cure, but it sure accelerates the process.
The fact that you guys are there for us every step of the way matters as well. Your company is wonderful and that's a rarity these days.
I cannot say that my knee is totally healed yet, but definitely it has improved greatly and has turned a corner.
If I did not have the inferno wrap, I seriously doubt my return to work would have been that speedy. Three weeks with the Inferno Wrap and I was back to work. [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 bought the knee wrap for my husband and he has gotten significant relief from it.
He only uses it occasionally now but used it every day for the first couple of months and felt it helped greatly.
I have one of your other products which I use [See Full Review]on my hip (which I believe has bursitis). It has been a godsend. I used it a lot in the beginning and now only have to use it once in a while--esp when there is a low front going through which usually aggravates my hip and my knee and my husband's knee.
I just wanted to compliment you on what excellent, thoughtful and efficient service you have given to this customer. I have lots more trust and belief in you guys than before I called. Thanks for your help.

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.
