QUICK SIZING SUGGESTIONS:
These are suggestions for the "standard" usage placements for each size. Of course, people come in many different sizes, so we don't specify a body part for each HurtSkurt® size for that reason. But generally speaking, these suggestions are where each size is best used. We highly recommend using a tape measure to measure the area you are looking to treat and matching that up with the dimensions detailed in the SIZING tabs below.
SMALL - Hand, Wrist, Forearm, Foot, Ankle, Calf
MEDIUM - Calf, Knee, Elbow
LARGE - Calf/Knee, Calf/Ankle, Calf/Hamstring, Elbow/Shoulder combos.
Large is also the most versatile HurtSkurt® to be used with our SkurtStrap accessory for Back, Shoulder, Hip, Neck, Abdomen treatments, It covers the most area because it is the longest HurtSkurt®. It works wonders on all these areas when used with the SkurtStrap.
XL - Knee, Hamstring
For larger sizing, please check out our new ZipSkurt™. ZipSkurts come in two sizes and can be zipped together to make custom sizes, so if none of the standard HurtSkurts fit you, you can make your own custom sizes with ZipSkurt™! They are also great for people who struggle to reach their feet, since it is easily zipped on and off. A perfect solution for those with injuries.
The HurtSkurt® is a revolutionary, patent-pending, stretch-to-fit hot/cold sleeve comprised of 2”x4” individual gel packs stitched into a custom printed soft stretch fabric. Each panel is separated with stretch stitching on all sides and sewn together at the ends, creating a highly flexible ring of gel packs that can double in circumference when stretched onto the body, allowing you to move about while wearing it. HurtSkurt® is designed this way to be the ultimate in comfort, effectiveness, efficiency, and convenience. Just grab it, slide it on, and go about your day without being laid up!
Once on the body, the HurtSkurt® creates a 360º therapeutic environment inside the ring for a long-lasting, penetrating treatment like nothing else on the market today. HurtSkurt® has been clinically proven to maintain a therapeutic temperature for more than an hour! Far longer than other packs, and longer than any recommended treatment. This allows HurtSkurt® to treat multiple areas without re-freezing, and also allows it to travel extremely well. Put your frozen HurtSkurt® in a cooler in the morning and it will be ready for treatment later in the day at the ball field, gym, or work so you don’t have to wait until you get home to get treatment. No more messy ice bags, or ugly, uncomfortable harnesses that dig into the skin and loosen over time.
HurtSkurt® may be stored in the freezer for its coldest usage (panels will freeze solid), in the refrigerator for a softer, more gentle treatment, or heated in the microwave for hot treatment.
HurtSkurt® is designed to stretch and fit a wide variety of sizes without the use of harnessing devices. There is an elastic sewn into the top and bottom hem to aid in smaller fits. This elastic restricts the overall stretch of the HurtSkurt® and may be very easily snipped without compromising the look or function and allow it to stretch to its fullest potential.
