Happy Frieday! I’m bringing you an awesome giveaway today from Dr Cool for #FrugalFridays!
Have you heard of Dr Cool? It’s a company that sells some pretty unique items such as compression wraps and cooling towels, caps, headbands, wristbands, arm sleeves and shirts.
Earlier this summer I started having some recurring knee pain. Nothing major, just more of an annoyance. I reached out to the nice folks at Dr Cool and they agreed to send me a medium size compression wrap to try.
The great thing abour Dr Cool wraps are that they combine compression and cold therapy. No longer do you have to use a bandage to help secure an ice pack or bag of ice to your injury! The medium size wrap measures 4″ x 50″ can be used for your knee, ankle or elbow.
So how does it work?
There are three very important factors:
- Moisture Wicking to move sweat away from your body
- Moisture Transportation to avoid saturation and accelerate drying
- Regulated evaporation for a consistent cooling effect
It’s recommended to pre-wash the wrap before your first use. Then wet the underside of the wrap, re-roll the wrap and place in the freezer for at least 20 minutes (I usually keep it in a little longer). When you’re ready to use, un-roll it and wrap your injury. There is also velcro at the end of the wrap to help keep it in place.
How did it work?
I used the wrap numerous times throughout the past few months. The great thing about this wrap was that I could walk around and complete tasks while still helping my injury. I didn’t feel like I had to be stuck in a position while trying to heal my injury. Also it stays cold for a great amount of time and I noticed that my knee always felt less sore after using the wrap.

Shameless plug – In unrelated news, I’ve entered this contest from Bibs2Bags. They asked us to upload a photo of our favorite bib and explain why. I chose my bib from my very first half marathon because 1. It was my first half marathon! and 2. It’s a cool bib with an image of an NYC bridge in the background. I’d appreciate any votes!
