QUALITY MADE PRODUCTS • QUALITY SUPPORT • QUALITY RESULTS

SMI cold therapy wraps provide a substantial cost savings over all types of cooler systems and ineffective ice bag products. Coolers are expensive, unreliable and pose added risk factors to both patients and nurses alike. Ice bags simply are not effective for total joint patients. Patient and hospital staff risk factors are reduced. Overall patient experience and satisfaction is improved both in the hospital as well as when they return home for their continued rehabilitation.

“Simple is always better!” Orthopedic nurses find SMI cold therapy wraps a vast improvement for their patients and a significant reduction in nursing time spent hassling with coolers or leaky, ineffective ice bags. With SMI 3½ hour gel bags, nurses can maintain the recommended 4 hour changing cycle when continuous cold therapy is required. Patients find the SMI cold therapy wrap easy to apply and wear during their stay.

ORTHO NURSES

Many times patients are left “holding the bag” and fending for themselves, which often leads to frustration, increased pain scores and longer rehabilitation. Coolers are often not used properly and can cause confusion and non-compliance to PT regimens. SMI cold therapy wraps provide a safe compression factor along with body specific wrap designs that allow for a snug, comfortable fit every time.

PHYSICAL THERAPISTS

SMI cold therapy wraps provide a very simple, straightforward patient care protocol that nurses find easy to follow. Patients improve their cold therapy compliance and have a greater satisfaction during their hospital stay. Family members, coaches, nurses and therapists all can work as a team encouraging patient ambulation to meet early discharge goals.

ORTHO UNIT DIRECTORS

Orthopedic doctors can expect nursing to follow an easy cold therapy regimen using SMI cold therapy wraps for their total joint patients. Upon discharge, patients have a durable, easy to use product for continued use at home. No more confused patients calling about their coolers or frustration with elevated pain levels. Patients are more willing to comply with their exercise routine at home and can ambulate freely wearing their SMI cold therapy wrap. The SMI 3½ hour gel bags can also be heated in the microwave for both a hot or cold modality during extended rehab applications.

ORTHO DOCTORS

Using SMI cold therapy wraps means increased cold therapy compliance and increased mobility for patients as well as improved satisfaction with their inpatient experience. Patients are more active wearing their SMI cold therapy wrap. Early discharge goals can be achieved without compro-mising patient care and patients have an easy to use product for continued use at home.
