R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) is the mantra for treating twists, strains and sprains. For EMS, this often means an elastic wrap and ice pack. But ice packs can be bulky, hard to place near certain joints and difficult to wrap completely around an injury.Recover Ice, new fromTechTrade, is a treated elastic bandage that provides cooling and compression at the same time. No refrigeration is needed. Simply open the package, wrap the affected area and let the cooling process begin.
