I had to have my hip replacement revised. The procedure was very extensive. This resulted in severe swelling. Ice packs couldn't keep up. The wrap around ice water pads resolved the swelling and brought my pain under control allowing me to decrease the amount of narcotics I was consuming. Thank you source products and Donjoy. This is my second Donjoy product and I have been well pleased with both.
It is a bit of work to getting the fit so you need another person to help, but after some experience you might be able to manage using it on your own. Using frozen water bottles works best for convenience. Glad I got the unit on my own because my doctor did not help getting it.
Wonderful! Must have! Essential for pain relief after knee surgery! Design holds more ice/water than other models, for longer duration between recharging the ice. Great value for the results it provides.
Suggestion: Provide specially designed freezable water containers for inserting into the unit for convenience in lieu of the hassle of buying and/or storing ice and perhaps not having enough when needed. Fill in around the frozen containers with water. Sell them as saving the cost of buying ice and avoiding the hassle of messing with it. We used 5 12 oz frozen bottles of bottled water, alternating 5 in the freezer with 5 in the unit.
