Application / Use
How do I apply Pressurice?
Pressurice is applied by wrapping the compression bandage and its Silicone Ice Pack around the area to be treated. Please refer to the interactive user guide to learn more about Pressurice’s application methodology through instructional videos.
How often can/should one use Pressurice?
The treatment can be repeated every 2 hours, in accordance with the recommendations of the medical staff.
Is it recommended to apply the Pressurice Silicone Ice Pack directly to the skin (without the wrap)?
No, the Silicone Ice Pack should NEVER be applied directly to the skin. It is essential to always insert the Silicone Ice Pack into the protective mesh pocket provided for this purpose in order to avoid possible risks of frostbite.
What are the risks of an extended application of more than 10 minutes?
The risk of local frostbite. Pressurice should therefore never be applied for more than 10 minutes per application.
Is it necessary to firmly tighten the wrap?
No, it is important that the wrap is adequately secured around the area to be treated.
Refund / prescription (only for Switzerland)
How can I get a refund?
In Switzerland, health insurance companies allow a refund for compression wraps and ice packs. It is however necessary to get a prescription. In order to do so, an information flyer intended for physicians is available here.
What should I do if my doctor refuses to prescribe Pressurice?
Physicians very rarely refuse to prescribe the 2 components of Pressurice (compression wrap + Silicone Ice Pack). However, should such a case arise, we kindly ask you to write to Pressurice and indicate the doctor’s name and contact details . We will intervene on your behalf to the best of our ability. There is of course no guarantee.
Maintenance / storage
How do I get rid of the unwanted debris sticking to the compression wrap (hair, threads, dust etc)?
Adhesive rolls are very efficient to get rid of unwanted debris sticking to the wrap. Do not use a brush.
How can I clean the wrap?
The wrap can be washed at 40°C / 105°F. We recommend you isolate the wrap in a washing net. Do not put the wrap in the dryer, let it dry in the open air.
Can I store the wrap and the Silicone Ice Pack in the freezer?
Yes, if the freezer is spacious enough, the wrap can be folded together with the Silicone Ice Pack placed inside the mesh pocket. The black "Freezer Bag" is provided specifically for this purpose and ease of use.
In case of continuous and repeated use, it is recommended to place only the Silicone Ice Pack in the freezer without the wrap. This will speed up the cooling process.
