There is a universal six week minimum recovery time for injuries which require an operation, with some injuries such as a torn ACL needing at least a year of recovery. These periods of recovery can be full of anxiety and stress, as often you feel like you are ready to dive back in, but your body is not quite on the same page. Recoverite’s revolutionary range of recovery products will slice your recovery time, getting you and your body in sync. Our products include compression socks, calf compression, quad compression, compression leggings and more.
Post-operative ice application is almost always recommended by medical professionals but can also be impractical and difficult. You may find yourself making ice cubes just for them to slip around, never be at the right temperature, and melt in no time, leaving you laying in a cold puddle. Recoverite’s ice & heat packs use our ClayFlex™ technology which allows you to reach the optimal skin temperature of under 13 degrees celsius whilst keeping the ice pack exactly where you need it and it won't melt! The range of Recoverite products all feature cleverly placed pockets for these packs to go inside, making your recovery easier than ever. Learn more about how to use our products here.
