How Books Revealed the Path to Self-Improvement
Chelsea Frank, Founder of Life and Limb Gel
Chelsea’s story is a delight to follow: she worked as a prosthetist/orthotist, having the opportunity to help people by creating customized bracing solutions, and even artificial limbs. During those years, she saw the opportunity to make things better, as some of the options available in terms of shoulder braces at that time were not all satisfactory. Her boss listened to her suggestions and, 2 months after increasing her budget, Chelsea was able to create custom shoulder orthoses with an excellent fit. The result? Hundreds of patients healed after their surgeries.
This win was a clear sign that Chelsea was good at inventing solutions and moved on to the next problem: the cheap and poorly designed gel packs used inside the shoulder orthoses. That’s how Life and Limb Gel was born. At first, it was mostly Chelsea, in a corner of her garage, inventing and testing. Since safety is important, she made sure that her gel packs are made of environmentally safe plastic and filled with food safe ingredients.
Fast forward to today, Life and Limb Gel is now a top choice in the hot and cold therapy industry.

Greater Grays Harbor Showcase - Life and Limb Gel
The next product featured in our Made In Grays Harbor display case is from Life & Limb Gel.
The company first began when Chelsea Frank was working as a prosthetist/orthotist. After complaining to her boss that the shoulder braces available were not a good fit on many patients, the idea to create a better solution was born. Life & Limb Gel provides affordable compress wraps and ice packs for anyone recovering from surgeries or chronic pain conditions.
Life and Limb Gel products can be purchased at North Beach Chiropractic Clinic
