Since 1981, Southwest Technologies, Inc. has been the manufacturer of high quality medical products. The company thrives on one mission and vision: To treat the world well. Southwest Technologies developed the first microwavable hot and cold packs, and in 1987 patented the technology that makes up ElastoGel.
ElastoGel is used in many different medical products in hospitals and clinics around the world. The versatile gel can be used for infection control, wound care, scar tissue management, and for seating and positioning purposes. ElastoGel Ice packs are trusted by healthcare professionals worldwide.
The gel fill in all ElastoGel ice packs is what makes the product special. It retains flexibility at temperatures as low as -20˚ F, which means that every ice pack by ElastoGel will fit right with maximal comfort and coverage.
When used as a hot pack, ElastoGel creates moist heat, the type of heat recommended by physical therapy and sports medicine professionals to help ease pain and improve tissue mobility.
The advanced gel in all ElastoGel products will not leak if the ice pack is punctured. This means that you won't have to worry about a mess in the unlikely event of damage to the pack.
Southwest Technologies is an American company operating out of Kansas City, Missouri. They take pride in their customer service, and are available to help if you have questions about any of their ElastoGel products.
