Knee T Shellz Wrap - a New Testimonial
Posted by on 5/23/2018 to Knee T-Shellz Wrap Reviews
Mr Scheer was more than ecstatic with the results from the Knee T-Shellz Wrap. He experienced less pain on the medial side of the knee and less pain in the quad muscles. Literally within one week of treatments, the improvement was dramatic.
"I purchased this device after suffering for 3-4 months with knee osteo-arthritis and a quad tear - with an MRI that said I was okay. I could not walk, seriously."
"Had 3 drains by the doctor in knee and quad. I had a big trip coming up to Utah and could not get off the couch, could not walk. My wife told me to cancel."
"My R.N. wife and her friend found this device (Knee T -Shellz Wrap) online and I was not hopeful as nothing was helping."
"Within 3 days of using the blood flow device, the swelling virtually disappeared in my quad. My pain level went from a 10 down to 1. The medial site on the knee which if touched was horrible - was now fine! The quad now seems to be healed, no swelling at all, In 7-8 days. I still have some knee issues but the pain is gone."
"Went on the hiking trip, had to be careful and not overdue it but I could not get off the couch!In favoring and jumping around for months my hip is out and going to treat with this machine also. I would not have believed it possible but it is. 3 docs and one telling me I needed a knee replacement. I am amazed."

Elbow T-Shellz Wrap Review - Great Design and Great Results
Posted by on 5/17/2018 to Elbow Pain & Tennis Elbow
A second generation customer of MendMeShop, Joshua has experienced first hand the benefits of the Elbow T Shellz Wrap. He took time to send us a testimonial:
"The T-shellz elbow wrap has really helped my elbow pain. The neoprene cover is very comfortable, and the overall design is well thought-out. I like the fact that the heat control is easily adjustable, so that I can adapt it when I am wearing a long-sleeve shirt or when the wrap is on my bare skin."
"The long electrical cord is very helpful, so that I can wear the sleeve, but have some leeway to move around, and not be too tightly tethered to the electrical outlet. I think this is a great product, and am grateful for how much it has alleviated my elbow pain."
"I definitely recommend this and other MendMeShop wraps. Unlike other products I have tried, these actually work!"
