Performance Health, Akron, Ohio, has expanded its Biofreeze product line to include Biofreeze Pain Relieving Singles. The packaging provides Biofreeze in a portable, no mess application providing pain relief. The therapist can snap open the small pouch and apply Biofreeze to the patient’s painful area. The easy-to-dispose of singles will be available June 1, 2011.
“Pain can strike at inconvenient times and inconvenient places, and it’s not always feasible for patients to carry our larger patient-sized Biofreeze products,” says Jeff Mathers, product manager, Performance Health. “We encourage hands-on healthcare practitioners to recommend Biofreeze Singles as a complement to the patient-sized products so that patients are protected no matter where they go.”
The product is said to offer targeted pain relief with the benefits of cryotherapy. The company projects this product will have appeal among doctors, therapists, and patients who are shifting toward topical analgesics and away from systemic pain relievers, which may affect the gastrointestinal tract, heart, kidneys and other organs, as well as cognition. Topical analgesics, such as Biofreeze singles, are manufactured to deliver targeted pain relief with low levels of systemic absorption, which may result in less risk for systemic toxicity and/or drug interaction.
