Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that's good inside you. It carries oxygen, nutrients and water. If you want to heal quickly, you need to get more blood moving through your injured soft tissue. This is where a T•Shellz Wrap® comes in.
Bringing proper blood flow to your knee is essential for healing. Unfortunately, when you injure your knee, you stop moving and the swelling sets in. Less movement means vital blood flow your soft tissue needs to heal is reduced; this results in a reduced ability for your body to heal the injury.
Circulatory Boost treatments, however, will substantially increase the flow of blood to soft tissue in the knee even if you can't move your knee.
Have you seen what happens when you add water to a flower wilted from drought? Think of your injured knee as a "wilted" flower; your body wants to heal its injury, but needs lots of nutrients to do it. Blood supports and facilitates new life by delivering healing nutrients and oxygen that are vital to your tissue. In addition, the blood carries away toxins and waste cleaning the area and healing it faster. Without a good supply of blood, your knee simply won't heal properly.
In order to get maximum blood flow to your knee, you need to stimulate blood flow in and around your knee. Use of a Knee T•Shellz Wrap® is the fast, easy and pain-free way to increase blood flow, accelerating your bodys soft tissue healing process. It's the key to dealing with your injured knee properly.
When you apply the Knee T•Shellz Wrap® you'll receive immediate benefits including an increase in blood flow to damaged soft tissue in the knee.
During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, your injured knee will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective.
With Circulatory Boost your injured knee is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly what your body needs to heal.
The Knee TShellz Wrap is a flexible, carbon fiber wrap that will significantly increase the flow of blood to your knee.With regular use of the Knee TShellz Wrap:

As we have mentioned earlier, blood flow is the critical delivery system of oxygen and nutrients that your body requires, and this is especially true when it comes to healing. This becomes a problem when there is an injury, as blood flow is usually restricted significantly. It is important to recognize that recovery speed from a soft tissue injury (tendon,muscle,ligament) is dependent on blood flow circulation. If you want better blood flow circulation, get rid of the inflammation first then apply the Circulatory Boost treatments (using the Knee T•Shellz Wrap®) directly over the injury area as outlined in the instructions. For most injuries, we recommend 2 to 3 Circulatory Boost treatments per day.
Since the T•Shellz Wrap® devices are circulatory system enhancers, Circulation Boost treatments should not be applied until initial inflammation from the affected area has been reduced. This is because you want to restrict blood vessels when you have pain and swelling and which is why we recommend usage of a Cold Compress to get the pain and swelling down from the area fast. Only then should the TShellz Wrap be applied.
Health is general term, but most of you would agree that athletes are more healthy than the average person. Why is this? Probably because an athlete undergoes much more physical activity and because of this, they have more healthy soft tissue. As you exercise muscles in your body, they increase in size and strength; they also require more bloodflow. The circulatory system is also "exercised" during physical activity, and it benefits from this as well by becoming stronger and delivering more bloodflow throughout the body. The more physical activity you undergo, the stronger your circulatory system becomes, delivering more oxygen and nutrients to your body in a more efficient manner.
You might also notice that athletes usually heal more quickly from soft tissue injuries than non-athletes. This is a prime example of how better blood flow circulation will have a positive impact on healing time. The strong circulation system of athletes brings a healing advantage that can be quite considerable. The TShellz Wrap is how you can literally gain that bloodflow advantage that only athletes usually have - just around the treatment area rather than through the whole body.
When you are physically active you probably notice that your blood is pumping harder. Your heart is increasing blood flow to deliver more oxygen to starved muscles, as well as take away waste materials (metabolic byproducts such as lactic acid) so they don't start collecting in your soft tissue. If your blood flow cannot keep up with your activity, your muscles tire and waste materials will build up, causing temporary weakness and soreness in the overused muscle groups. It is a very practical example of why blood flow is important; the best athletes generally have the best and most efficient circulatory system. They can keep going (ie. riding a bicycle up a mountain in the Tour De France) when others simply cannot.
The increased flow of blood from a TShellz Wrap treatment is much the same as would be gained from physical activity, only it occurs in the localized treatment area rather than the whole body. Energy from the TShellz Wrap is absorbed at the injury area, inducing blood flow exactly where you need it most.
The great advantage of Circulatory Boost treatments is that you are increasing your healing rate via enhanced bloodflow without the physical activity that can and does often lead to re-injury. TShellz Wraps allow to heal quickly while reducing your chance of re-injury.
A Knee T•Shellz Wrap® is purely a Circulatory Boost workhorse! It's why we made them. They have been specifically designed for the treatment of deep, soft tissue injuries.
T•Shellz Wraps® contain a Energy Pad which is flexible and will shape to conform to your body. This Energy Pad emits a uniform wave of perfectly safe energy over its entire surface. This energy travels to the soft tissue in the treatment area; stimulating the blood flow and increasing oxygen levels in the blood. This is what your body desperately needs to heal soft tissue. This energy is CRUCIAL to the healing process.
This, in turn, improves white blood cell function which increases the body's ability to eliminate toxins and other waste by-products resulting from damaged tissue within the knee. This allows the knee to more easily stimulate the self healing process.
Many knee injuries are the result of trauma to a tendon or muscle, usually causing the tissue to tear. As a result of the tear, your body triggers a natural healing process resulting in pain, inflammation, and the creation of scar tissue. This process has 3 steps; getting rid of waste while repairing damaged tissue (inflammation), fixing the torn tissue with a "band-aid" solution (remodeling), and reinforcing that band-aid solution with flexible tissue (proliferation).
You can speed your recovery while decreasing any risk of re-injuring the tissue by enhancing your body's own natural healing process. Once inflammation has been reduced, scar tissue begins to form to repair the torn tissue. Scar tissue is much faster to build than flexible tissue, but it can only repair the torn tissue temporarily. Left untreated, the scar tissue provides little flexibility increasing the risk of re-injury.
T•Shellz Wrap® => Increased Blood Flow => More Oxygen, More Nutrients and Less Toxins => Faster Healing
The unit plugs into a wall outlet to get its power. It has a special signal controller which can be set for 3 different power levels of application (3=High, 2=Medium, 1=Low). The cord is long so you can sit or lie comfortably and watch TV, read or surf the net while you are using it.
Attach the T•Shellz Wrap around your knee, plug it in and let the Energy Pad do the work!
When treating the knee with hot and cold treatments there are a couple of points to consider. Take breaks between ice pack treatments to ensure you do not freeze your skin - this rarely happens but it is important to look out for.
To heal fast we need the right temperature at the right time. Combined therapy using ice packs to minimize swelling (at onset of injury or during flare ups) and T•Shellz Wraps® will give you the greatest chance for a complete recovery.

We are constantly being asked, is it like a heating pad, is it like infra-red, is it like ultrasound, does it use a magnet? The truth is that the wraps are what we believe to the most effective Circulation Boost products out there that are available for use at home.
It is a product is intended specifically for soft tissue treatment in this fashion. IT WORKS unbelievably well! You can be certain of this, as we give full refunds if this is not the case.
While you are treating yourself with a Knee T•Shellz Wrap®, the increase in blood flow will also whisk away inflammation.
The Energy Pad stimulates all the tissue beneath it. The parts of your body that are healthy will rapidly respond with increased blood flow and there will be little sensation in that area.
As your body continues to treatments you should notice a decrease in pain and your knee's range of motion will improve. So not only is your knee improving, but with every treatment you can feel the difference - you can tell your knee is improving.
Do you have a knee injury that's painful, sore and always seems to get re-injured? This could be a sign that there is scar tissue in there wreaking havoc. The growth of scar tissue is ultimately what causes stiffening and instability in a joint, restricting movement and flexibility.
During the healing process your body will fill in tears in your ligaments (medial & lateral plantar), tendons(peroneus longus/brevis,tibialis,sesamoid ) or bursae (metatarsal, calcaneal, metatarsaophalangeal) with dense, brittle tissue called "scar tissue".
Your body uses scar tissue as a quick repair solution for soft tissue strains and tears, and it will build scar tissue as fast as possible to heal a strain or tear.
The problem is that when the inflammation is gone, scar tissue will still be there, and unlike tendons, ligaments, and muscle tissue, scar tissue doesn't stretch.
On-going issues with scar tissue can even result in a soft tissue tear, related soft tissue injuries to nearby tendons or ligaments and/or knee instability. Often, a painful component of Physical Therapy is required to break up scar tissue, or even worse, you many need arthroscopic knee surgery to clean up scar tissue.
Scar tissue is one of the MAIN reasons why a knee injury just hasn't healed 100%.
Scar tissue will form fast to deal with a knee injury, and this scar tissue will also attach to everything in the area, including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a fusing together of the soft tissue in the knee that reduces your mobility and makes your injury even more painful! This is why physical therapy is often painful - the therapist stretches the joint, forcing the scar tissue bonds to break so you can regain your range of motion. Due in part to the extreme forces of your full body weight, knee pain can become extreme and is very real and common.
Scar tissue is a major problem especially when it comes to a knee injury - causing your injury to take months or even YEARS to completely heal!
Time and Rest is often the only way for your knee injury to truly heal, but with Circulatory Boost you can help augment your body's healing process, soften scar tissue and avoid re-injury.
When applied before activity or work, the TShellz Wrap will also relax and lengthen your soft tissue to help improve your range of motion and prevent atrophy (wasting away) of your injured knee soft tissue.
Overall, continued treatment with a TShellz Wrap will maintain good health in your soft tissue and significantly reduce your risk of re-injury.
After treating your soft tissue injury with Cold Compresses and TShellz Wraps, you will arrive at a point where there is no longer any pain and you find that you can get around much more easily without pain. This often happens after a couple days of treatments and some rest on the sofa. Be careful! This is often where trouble can start.
Since the pain is gone, you can mistakenly start thinking your injury is healed. Not knowing this, we start walking around normally again (climbing stairs, even) and in so doing, interrupt the healing process and start to stress the partially injured knee, often re-injuring it again. We continually re-injure the area through our daily activities which can often lead to a "chronic" soft tissue injury, and yes, chronic is bad. With a chronic soft tissue injury, odds of surgery increase as do the odds of more soft tissue injuries due to overcompensation (ie. You have been limping for 5 months because of a meniscus tear in the left knee and now you are getting tendinitis above your right side knee) and your hips are starting to hurt when you walk.
What I'm saying is this: once you start feeling better and the pain has disappeared, your injury is still there. Depending on the type of injury and/or condition, it may take months and months to heal. Keep treating the area with TShellz Wraps at least twice per day as Circulatory Boost will continue fostering more blood-flow at your old injury site.
When applied before activity or work, the TShellz Wrap will also relax and lengthen your soft tissue to help improve your range of motion and prevent atrophy of the injured knee. Continued treatment with a TShellz Wrap will maintain good health in the soft tissue and significantly reduce your risk of reinjury.
It's generally understood by doctors and surgeons that surgery will usually introduce more scar tissue. Newer arthroscopic style surgeries are much less invasive than open surgery, however, and this helps greatly by lessening the amount of scar tissue post-surgery. Scar tissue is problematic, requiring visits to the physio clinic and conservative treatment options post-surgery. If not dealt with properly, your knee could end up in worse condition than before the surgery! This is why surgery is only performed as a last resort.
There are some soft tissue injuries where surgery is really unavoidable. Often, such surgeries will be for repairing full tears or full knee replacements. In such cases, know that use of an ice pack (or cold compress) and the Knee TShellz Wrap are excellent home treatment tools to assist in recovery from surgery. Click here to learn more about it.
Most doctors, surgeons and orthopedic specialists will recommend conservative therapy for soft tissue injuries before even considering surgery.
Some of the most effective conservative treatment methods you will find are:
Cold is recommended by doctors following surgery to treat your pain in a natural, non-addictive way and to reduce swelling..
After the incision site has healed, use our TShellz Wraps to augment the bodys healing process via Circulation Boost. Using the T•Shellz Wrap® as soon as pain & swelling has reduced following your surgery is intended to minimize scar tissue growth in your knee that will form as you heal. Treating scar tissue is the most important step following surgery, especially in a joint as scar tissue growth will impact range of motion in the joint.
Leaving post-surgery scar tissue untreated can lead to stiffness, chronic pain, osteoarthritis or other chronic conditions. You're more likely to end up with another knee injury if you choose not to treat the scar tissue that develops in your foot. Increased blood flow encourages more oxygen and nutrients to flow to the area to speed your bodys healing process and improve the strength of the soft tissue in your joint.
