Disposable ice packs are one of these offerings, and they are available from a large number of sources. Of course, the types, costs, and uses vary, but there are a few things to research before deciding which disposable ice packs are best for you.
The quality, size, type of use, and the area in which they are to be used are key elements in determining which ice packs to choose. Size is important, as the pack should cover the entire injured or affected area, and there are several sizes from which to choose. Common types of disposable ice packs include rectangular or tubular shapes.
Some disposable ice packs are available with a harness or support wrap, or offer harnesses separately, to keep the ice pack where it is needed. This is important for areas such as shoulders, elbows, knees, or any area where it might be difficult to keep a cold pack in place. Be sure to choose the appropriate design and harness.
For work, school, camp, sporting events or other outings, disposable ice packs are perfect for minor injuries. You don’t have to worry about something happening to them or about them not being returned. Ice packs are available in latex-free options as well, so choose this type if you are concerned about latex allergies.
