If you’d like to find out more about our cold compression unit the Cryo Pro, below are some of our most commonly asked questions:
How does the Cryo Pro work?
The Cryo Pro is simple to use and only requires ice, water and power. Simply fill the unit with ice and water, plug it in, attach your wrap to the unit with the hose and choose your time and compression setting.
The Cryo Pro uses cold compression therapy to aid your recovery. Cold compression therapy works by constricting the blood vessels, which in turn reduces swelling and inflammation. Cold therapy can also calm muscle spasms, minimise bruising and soothe nerve endings, encouraging quick and effective healing for a variety of muscle tendon and ligament injuries.
How long does the Cryo Pro compress for?
There are 9 different settings to choose between. There is Low, Medium and High compression with 3 different time choices, from 20 to 40 to 60 minutes. It will compress for 5 seconds and then release for 7 seconds and repeat this process throughout.
Do I keep the wrap? (For Rental)
Yes, you will be supplied with a new wrap for your rental and you are able to keep this and use as a cold wrap.
Can I put the wrap directly on my skin?
It is recommended to have a thin layer of clothing between the wrap and your skin.
What pressure should I start on?
This is personal preference for what is required for you, test out the different settings and see what is most comfortable.
How long should I use the Cryo Pro for?
You are able to use the Cryo Pro for the maximum time setting of 60 minutes, then it is recommended to rest for as long as you have used the unit for, and then you are able to repeat.
