Ice gel packs and ice gel blocks have been around for centuries and are widely used for tons of applications to date. Even though there are many ice gel packs and blocks in the market, only a hand full of them are of high quality. Ezyfreeze and MediGelPak being one of the few.
Now, one may ask themselves why use ice gel packs or blocks if I could simply use plain old ice? Well, the benefits of using ice gel packs and blocks outweigh the use of ice. Before we talk about the benefits of ice gel packs and blocks, we will introduce to you what ice gel packs and ice gel blocks are.

Thomas and Green carry two types of ice gel packs. First would be our very own brand EzyFreeze, these ice gel packs and ice gel blocks are mainly used for the transportation of food and medical supplies. While our MediGelPak ice gel packs are used as medical therapy for our consumers. Our MediGelPaks can not only be cold but it also can be microwaved to be used as hot therapy for conditions such as Arthritic pain relief, Tendonitis, Neck, and back pain, and many more.
