Using gel pack ice for therapeutic purposes is called cryotherapy. In this therapy, cold temperature is applied to the target area through ice packs, providing pain relief and relaxation. Integration of gel pack ice into abdominal belts and the posture corrector belt increases the beneficial effects because it gives compression and cryotherapy together.

Why is using the gel pack ice in abdominal belts essential for maximum effects?

  • Post-surgery usage – After abdominal surgeries, gel pack ice can work as a pain reliever for the pain that occurs after abdominal surgeries.
  • Inflammation reduction – Using gel pack ice as cold therapy can decrease redness and inflammation. Using gel pack ice in an abdominal belt can also reduce the chances of redness caused by the abdominal belt itself.
  • Speed up the healing process – Cold therapy often slows down cellular metabolism and reduces the rate of tissue damage.
  • Beneficial in muscle tightness – Cold therapy based on the use of gel pack ice on the abdominal area reduces muscle tightness and spasms.
  • Convenient – Gel pack ice is easy to use. Cold therapies are more convenient and comfortable compared to other therapies.

  • Skin-soothing effects – Sometimes, if you wear abdominal belts for a long period of time, it can be a little harsh on your skin. To soothe your skin, you can use a gel ice pack. If you integrate a gel ice pack with an abdominal belt, it can elevate the benefits without any side effects.
