GelSmart Introduces Two Forefoot Treatment Options Featuring New Comfort Cushion SmartGel Technology

May 5, 2013 - Whippany, NJ - PolyGel has recently expanded its ThermoActive line to include the New 'ThermoActive™ Medical' 'Large' Knee Orthosis w/ROM Hinges and a New ThermoActive™ 'Large' Size Knee support. The added sizing options give Orthopaedic Surgeons and Physical Therapists the ability to prescribe these additional ThermoActive devices, providing their large and obese patients with the advantage of hot or cold compression therapy within an orthopedically sound structural support for controlled relief.

'ThermoActive Medical' Large ROM Knee System

This reimbursable treatment option is ideal for sprains, strains and post-op recovery. The ROM hinges can be adjusted within seconds by changing the settings on the integrated pins. Both flexion and extension can be controlled in 15o increments from 0o to 90o or can allow full range of motion. Additionally, the New 'ThermoActive Medical' Large Knee Orthosis allows better control of excessive medial/lateral movements as well as edema. Billable under L-1832.

ThermoActive Large Knee Support

This new larger size option fits circumferences of up to 26” above the knee cap and 25” below the knee cap. And, with optional extension straps, the New Large Knee Support can fit circumferences of 36” above the knee cap and 35” below the knee cap. Providing optimal circumferential compression and support, the New ThermoActive Large Knee has precise fitting to provide deep tissue treatment, greater mobility during treatment, is lightweight for great portability and ease of use, and is latex free.

As with all of the ThermoActive products, the gel packs always remain flexible, and the supports are washable and reusable.

About 'ThermoActive™ Medical'

ThermoActive Medical is one of the only product lines available today to combine a high level of support, using hinge, splint or panel supports, with cold or hot compression therapy. This unique combination of compression, heat or cold and support, provides a total therapeutic device that promotes healing, controls excessive motion, minimizes edema and reduces pressure to the area of injury. 'ThermoActive Medical' is ideal for post-op patients or those requiring more support than an over the counter product can offer and is reimbursable.

The components attach to each support with a convenient, easy to use hook-and-loop system. This allows the healthcare professional to place the hinge, splint or panel at a precise location and exact angle as required by individual patient anatomy, with adjustments made quickly and easily.
