SO EASY TO USE: The principle is simple. To activate the wallet, immerse it in cold water for as little as 5 minutes (depending on size). Crystals contained in the panels of the wallet then expand into a gel, which remains cool for 45 hours – relying on the process of evaporation for cooling. Then just towel dry and it’s ready to go!
SPECIAL FEATURES: Although activated by water, a feature of the product is that after towel-drying, the FRÍO® wallet is dry to the touch. The Cambrelle® outer cover increases the wallet’s efficiency and allows it to be carried safely in your pocket or a bag as required. Each item is re-usable and can be used either continuously or intermittently.
COMPATIBILITY: Designed to suit all types and makes of insulin pumps, insulin pens and standard refill cartridges. Just browse our catalogue to choose the right one for you. Not sure which FRÍO® you need? Just go to our contact page to make your enquiry.

FDA APPROVED: The FRÍO® wallet and the crystals have been scrutinised by the FDA and their sale in the USA has been approved.
