With thousands of schools across Canada and the United States returning to in-person learning this month, there are bound to be some playground bumps and sports injuries along the way. That’s where the full array of Rapid Aid products come in: Wholesale instant cold packs, instant warm packs, and reusable hot and cold gel compresses all help keep users comfortable and pain-free as they recover from an injury or growing pains.
With Kids Around, Accidents Are Inevitable
While we offer over 400 SKU’s for all types of organizations, from medical supply companies to pharmaceutical manufacturers and retail giants worldwide, we find that primary schools, universities, and daycare centers trust us to deliver for their students.
Our most popular products are our reusable gel packs and our instant packs. Both are available in hot and cold options. Our instant packs are especially well suited for educational or sports settings as they can be easily stored and activated at the time of need for instant relief of bruises, bumps, or scrapes. Both product types are also available with an antimicrobial coating which prevents the spread of bacteria from one user to the next. These convenient products are a mainstay for teachers, coaches, and parents, not just for use at the nurses’ office.
When a sudden injury is sustained, such as a bump to the elbow or knee on the football field, it is imperative to apply cold therapy immediately to the affected area to reduce swelling and pain. Cryotherapy (cold therapy) works by constricting the blood vessels to prevent further inflammation of the area. Alternatively, if a student pulls a muscle while running track, heat therapy can be applied immediately. The heat will boost circulation and blood flow to the area, returning oxygen and nutrients to the joint or muscle, providing near-immediate relief. If you are ever unsure what type of heat therapy to apply, check out this easy-to-read infographic we created.
In addition to face masks and hand sanitizers, Rapid Aid products will be in high demand as students return to the classroom. With over 130,000 schools in the United States and nearly 5.7 million students in Canada, these products are sure to be needed in schools across the globe.
