No more frozen peas! The 3-in-1 gel wrap come highly recommended to us by a chartered physiotherapist (and friend) – versatile, easy to use and great for easing aching muscles and joints.
This hands-free premium gel pack is leak-free and will fit any body part. Wrap the elasticated strap around twice for strong compression on smaller limbs like knees, ankles and wrists. For larger areas such as the shoulders, abdomen and back, the strap will stretch around the entire body.
The medical grade gel comes with a ‘flexible when frozen’ guarantee to ensure your safety and comfort. Use as a cold compress or hot pack. The elastic strap also provides compression therapy to reduce swelling and promote healing.

How to use the 3-in-1 gel wrap
- Place gel pack in freezer for 2hrs minimum for best results
- Touch-test the temperature. Freeze further if necessary
- If too cold allow to thaw for a few minutes prior to use
- Heat the gel pack in microwave for 30 seconds
- Remove and test temperature against skin
- Massage the pack to spread the heat evenly
- If not hot enough then heat in 10 sec increments
- Heating times are based on 800W microwave
- Adjust heating times accordingly to suit the power of your microwave – this may take a few practices to get right
- Always heat from room temperature – never from frozen
- Microwave the gel pack ONLY – never the fabric cover/wrap
- Monitor the gel pack whilst heating – If you observe swelling of the pack turn off the microwave immediately and wait for swelling to subside
- Do not sit, lean against or lie on the gel pack as breakage/leakage may occur
