BaxMAX's innovative Hot/Cold Therapy Gel packs are ideal to soothe sore muscles or to use as therapy for injured muscles. This set of 2 gel packs have Velcro sewn to the backside so that they can be attached to the inside of the BaxMAX Back Support. Simply place the Gel Packs in the freezer or microwave before attaching to the BaxMAX.
NO MORE FILLING UP BAGS WITH ICE - Simply place the BaxMAX Gel packs in your freezer for 2 hours and attach to your BaxMAX Back Support. They will stay icy cold and provide low back muscle relief for up to 30 minutes. Recommended use time for Hot or Cold is 30 minutes.
ALTERNATE COLD AND HOT - Once the Gel pack has warmed after using as a COLD pack, simply place it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and apply heat to the low back using the same pack.
ARE YOU IN A CHIROPRACTIC OR DECOMPRESSION THERAPY PROGRAM? - The BaxMAX Gel packs are perfect to soothe your muscles after your Chiropractic adjustment or decompression therapy treatments. The cold therapy will reduce blood flow to the muscles and joints in the low back, which can significantly reduce inflammation and swelling that causes pain.
DO YOU OFTEN GET LOW BACK PAIN FROM WORK OR SPORTS? - Heat therapy has been proven to help relax and loosen tissues and stimulate blood flow the low back and often help to reduce pain and injury. Use before doing an activity such as work or sports.
The BaxMAX has five basic sizes which will accommodate most people.
- XXLarge - 45" - 50"
- XLarge - 40" - 45"
- Large - 35" - 40"
- Medium - 30" - 35"
- Small - 25" - 30"
* There is also a 5" extension that makes the XXLarge into a XXXLarge (50" - 55")
To make sure you get the correct size, we recommend the following:
For a man, the BaxMAX waist size is the same as a pants (waist) size. For example, if you wear a 36 blue jean, you would be a Large BaxMAX (35" - 40"). If you are not 100% sure its best to take a measurement around the waistline (just over the belt). If you have a belly and you wear your pants underneath your belly, measure around the largest part of your belly to determine the size.
For a Woman, it's a little trickier. Since a woman pant size is different than a man's, it's best to take a measurement around the largest part on the hips. This will insure that the BaxMAX will fit over the SI joint in the event that there is a sciatic issue. Also, it's good to fit the BaxMAX in the shape of a "V" in the front. This keeps the belt snug across the waist and hips to keep if from riding up when bending over.
In general, its always better to get your BaxMAX a size too big rather than a size too small, because you can overlap the velcro in the front if it's too big. If it won't hook at all in the front, it won't work for you. So, if you are on the border between 2 sizes, get the bigger size.
