The short answer is - yes, the Shoulder Wraps are very effective at healing muscle and soft tissue injuries. We try and keep in touch with a large percentage of our customers, and we encourage them to do the same. In doing so, we have received a lot of feedback as these devices were brought to market in 2008.
We can say that the return rate on the Shoulder BFST and ColdCure Wraps is only around 4% any given month. That is exceptional by anyone's standards.
Therefore, we can safely indicate that the overwhelming majority of people who purchase the Should BFST or ColdCure Wrap do achieve benefits with each device.
Are the BFST Wraps and ColdCure Wraps F.D.A. registered devices?
Yes, both the Shoulder BFST and ColdCure wraps are F.D.A. listed devices. Our products are intended to heal soft tissue injuries, help with chronic conditions, and are also used in post-operative healing. Our devices are manufactured to medical standards - their quality exceeds that of standard consumer grades.
What is the difference between the BFST wrap and a standard heating pad?
The differences between the BFST Wrap and heating pads, moist gel packs, etc - is a night and day comparison. There is nothing that compares to the healing capacity of the BFST technology.
To begin with, heatingpads and the like work on conduction. The heat has to be forced through multiple layers of skin and fatty tissues. With each layer of skin the heat passes through, there is a corresponding energy loss because that heat is absorbing into each layer it passes through. By the time the heat reaches the targeted area, very little energy is remaining and this does not effectively enhance blood flow. Without the enhanced blood flow effect to the injured tissues - healing just don't happen.
The heatingpad may feel good when on the body, but that is because you are merely heating the skin. Moist heat has been believed to be more effective at warming internal tissues versus dry heat, because it is believed that water transfers heat more quickly than through air. Clinical studies do not support the popular belief.
The BFST Wrap is based on the scientifically validated principal of Electromagnetic energy. This form of treatment is safe and effective as shown in numerous studies which can be referenced through the National Library of Medicine.
The healing energy from the BFST wrap does not absorb into the skin - it absorbs directly into the damaged muscle and soft tissue (as a result, you will not feel the same level of heat on the skin versus a heating pad). The longer wavelength provides the BFST Wrap the capability of penetrating deep into the body (well over two and a half inches).
The energy from the Inferno resonates with the body’s own energy waves to gently warm the tissues, improve blood circulation, and boost metabolism and enzyme activity. This is why the BFST Wrap works so well - because the body knows and responds very well to the energy. In stimulating blood flow to the damaged tissue, you provide the tissue with the oxygen, nutrients, and antibodies it needs to regenerate new, healthy collagen. In addition, you will experience a clearing of toxins and excess fluid build up from the injury site. Over the intermediate term, this helps to reduce incidents of swelling as trapped fluids will be whisked away - reducing pressure on vessels.
How much time do I need to dedicate for treatments? Are the products easy to use?
Both the BFST and ColdCure Wraps are very easy devices to use. After one or two uses, you will engage in the treatments with ease. Very detailed instructions are included and you are always welcome to contact us by phone or email if the need for help arises.
In regards to the BFST wrap, it is ideal to use the device two or three times a day on average. Each treatment session is a maximum of 20 minutes in duration and the device will turn off automatically at that time. Typically, people use the BFST wrap before bed, upon awakening (or not long after) and one other time during the day when the opportunity presents itself. For people in an office setting, many will use the device at work (as it can be worn over clothing). For others, they will use the device an our or two after work.
With the ColdCure Wrap, it is primarily used following activity that stresses the injured tissues (following work, after a sports activity, or just suffering a general re-injury). This is done to reduce inflammation and to minimize tissue damage. Treatments are 15 to 20 minutes in duration.
Your treatment schedule with the ColdCure Wrap is flexible as it is used on an as-needed basis. The more active you are, the more you will be stressing the injured tissues - resulting in more of a need for treatment with the ColdCure Wrap on that particular day.
