"My daughter in law, an RN who works in a clinic in a ski town, had an MRI of her knee that documented an MCL strain and mild meniscus tear. She is still using the device (3 weeks now) and reports that it is fantastic for pain relief. She relates the same findings that I had noted: convenience, works in a shorter time than ice alone, and there is something about the vibration that adds to pain relief. I can feel comfortable reporting that you have a great idea and I can highly recommend it."

"Our patients routinely find their plantar fasciitis pain is reduced from a 4/10 to a 2/10, which is a victory. Some days are pain free."

"I injured my knee playing tennis and used ice, compression and elevation post injury. That process certainly numbed my knee and probably helped reduce swelling. When I got the VibraCool®, I used it per the instructions and it felt markedly better. I started using it 3 to 4 times a day whenever I saw swelling in my knee or felt pain. Now that I am in rehab, I started using it after I complete my rehab exercises each day, and whenever I would see swelling in my knee. Today, my seventh day of rehab, I am able to just use VibraCool® after exercising. I don’t know why the vibration makes such a huge difference, but my knee feels markedly better after using the VibraCool® than it does just using ice. I feel like my knee is just about fully recovered."
"I can type all day after I put VibraCool® on for 10 minutes!"

"I can walk up and down stairs now after adding vibration to my icing routine."
"I am a 57 year old male that leads an active lifestyle. I run regularly and when I returned from a snow skiing trip earlier this year I developed knee pain in my left knee. The pain was significant enough that I wasn't able to exercise; it was even painful to walk. After two weeks without any improvement I went to see a doctor who suggested that it was a pain from overuse and that I should just stay off it until it healed. I used the VibraCool® unit with the integrated ice packs 3 times a day for about 10 minutes each time. Within two weeks the pain was completely eliminated and I was able to resume my regular exercise activities. The VibraCool® was very easy to use. Mine has an elastic velcro strap and ice pack that attaches to the unit so that it can be firmly positioned directly over the pain. When and if I ever have overuse pains in any of my joints I will start using VibraCool® immediately. I recommend it to anyone that leads an active lifestyle, sometimes overdoes it and experiences joint pain."

“I used VibraCool® and for the first day, I didn't need my pain pills after knee surgery."
As an established medical massage practice, we purchased VibraCool® in December 2015 to test on our clients. The item presented a nice compliment to our therapeutic repertoire of products used to rehabilitate muscle ailments. Thirty days of use yielded positive feedback from both patients and clinical staff. We received the following impressive comments:
• small & compact size (for mobile use)
• very powerful vibration
• targeted delivery to pain site
• light weight
• stays in place on target area
• ergonomic shape
• short freeze time for ice pack
• quick acute pain relief (within minutes)
• effectively reduces inflammation
Clients who inquired about purchasing VibraCool® also liked the affordable price. I recommend the product for home and clinical use.

"My running partner and I are avid but amateur runners; aches and pains on legs and feet come with the territory for us. We have ran 3 marathons, 2 half-marathons, 1 5K and 1 10K in the past year and decided to try the Dopey Challenge at Disney 2 weeks ago. The challenge consisted in running 4 races in 4 days, with progressive distances each day: 5K, 10K, half-marathon and marathon. The small races weren't a concern for us but running 13.1 miles the day prior to the marathon was concerning, especially due to the fact that I was experiencing shin splints and some feet pain and his legs were hurting a bit... and because going to the Disney parks after the race was on our plans, we needed to account for days’ worth of walking on top of running.
After doing considerable reading, I decided to purchase the VibraCool® and try it out as pre and post-running treatment. After the half-marathon and marathon races, my running partner and I treated, for 10 minutes, each area of our legs that was sore or tired from running. We alternated the use of VibraCool between the two us (because I had purchased just one) and used the straps to hold the VibraCool in place. I treated my calves, knees, and the arches of my feet. Surprisingly enough, we were able to run all races without walking or stopping and we were able to walk the entire day after the half and full marathons. For us, that was a big accomplishment because our legs are usually tired and the calves and knees are sore after marathons.
We were quite ecstatic that we found something that worked. I’ve used compression socks and sleeves, KT tape, Tiger Balm, gel packs, post-race massages and even icy bath (my least preferred thing) and so far, nothing has worked as well as this device. The Dopey Challenge has made us a fan of it. Good tool for runners to have as pre- and post-run pain and recovery treatments… It made a huge difference for us."

"I love my Vibracool®! I bought it for my sprained ankle, but I use it all over--my knee, my hip, my shoulder, my wrists. Apparently, I'm getting arthritis in various joints (yay for getting fat and old!) and the VibraCool® gives me relief. Best money I've spent."
