Ease your back pain with the Hot or Cold Gel Bead Back Wrap with Strap from up & up™. This compress is filled with gel pearls that conform to the body even when frozen, making it easier to use than traditional ice packs. It's simple to freeze for use as a cold compress, providing relief and reducing swelling from bumps, bruises, strains and more. When you need heat therapy for tired joints or muscles, simply pop it in the microwave to turn it into a heat compress — it's that easy! With the hook and loop strap to keep it comfortably in place and a shape specifically designed to span the back, it's easy to find relief.
This was great for my lower back, the strap kept it on so I could use it beyond just laying down. But then the plastic on one of the 3 compartments broke and leaked a 3rd of the gel beads out. Clearly a common issue given the other reviews here. Glad it broke before I went to buy another one so I'd always have one ready during my back surgery recovery. Buying a different brand from elsewhere.
This item reeked of polystyrene right out of the box and stunk up an entire cabinet with the same odor. 24 hours after throwing this pad in the trash the cabinet still smelled of polystyrene. This product says “compare with Therapearl”, which is the equivalent brand-name hot/cold pack. You can get the genuine Therapearl version of this pad on line for less than Target’s imitation and the Therapearl version gives off no odor whatsoever.
I really like this wrap. it's keep cold for a long time, and is so flexible, you can easily use it on other parts of the body (knees, neck, even ankle and feet) I had ordered one, just ordered one more for myself and my neighbot.
