UPI is excited to announce the launch of their newest brand and product CoolXChange, a new innovative Gel Bandage.

CoolXChange is a revolutionary gel bandage that combines cooling plus compression in one, for the advanced recovery from pain and inflammation caused by sprains and strains.

CoolXChange was developed due to the frustration UPI’s colleagues and friends felt in conveniently applying ice evenly around an injured area. Being an advocate for the R.I.C.E (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) method and being an ageing ‘weekend warrior’, Matthew Symington (UPI CEO) was constantly reaching for cold packs and bags of frozen peas wrapped in a tea towel to minimise cold burns over a 15-20 minute period.

“Having to then apply a compression bandage and repeating this process over and over again became irritating and time consuming”, said Matthew Symington, who then began to think of ways to make this process easier.

The research then began into a product that would combine the ‘I’ and the ‘C’ that could be used and applied conveniently for longer periods of time.

“After more than two years of development and numerous prototypes tested, CoolXChange was born in 2015 and we couldn’t be more excited about this new, innovative product”, said UPI CEO Mathew Symington.

The 2 in 1 technology is gleaned from the R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) methodology, combining compression and cooling to reduce the amount of blood flow and heat in the area that is injured.
