Brain on ice
Just had brain surgery and this is perfect for cooling the brain and head to help relieve the pain. Absolutely worth the purchase. My alternative is the big bulky electric ice cap machine that I can’t take with me. Freeze the pads and buy extras and have extra relief. You’ll be amazed.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad to hear about your great experience with our product because we are committed to helping you live better Thanks for being a Vive Health Customer. -Melisa- Vive Health
