“Necessity is the mother of invention”
No truer words could be spoken when it comes to the creation of the Freeze Sleeve.
Hello, my name is Mike and I am the inventor of the Freeze Sleeve. My wife Robbin and I have four children who are all active and participate in multiple competitive sports. All four kids have had their share of injuries over the years, but the youngest of the bunch “Lizzie” could not stay at 100%. She is a competitive gymnast and trains up to 25 hours a week. After multiple broken bones, fractures, pains and strains… her little body was a wreck.
One day she came home from practice crying of both elbow and knee pain!
Our immediate reaction was to tell her we needed to take her out of gymnastics and find another sport.
With tears streaming down her face she said "but Dad, I LOVE gymnastics!”
I have personally used ICE and COMPRESSION for years as a recovery tool after my daily workouts, so I decided to see if there were anything out there for her. After countless hours of searching on the internet, and purchasing multiple products to try, I was ready to give up.
Nothing fit her little body and trying to keep her still for 15 minutes to ice every night was nearly impossible. I knew there had to be a better way. After seeing an infomercial late one night for compression sleeves... I had the “ah ha” moment.
Could we actually make a product that delivered cold therapy in a comfortable, easy to use compression sleeve that was child friendly, non toxic and leak proof?
That's exactly what we did!
Hope you enjoy your Freeze Sleeve!
