Pains and injuries are quite usual but will most likely have a long time effect if not given attention. They may come as a result of an everyday workout or sporting activities and can happen in any area of the body. We shall consider how AirCast Cryo Cuff treats pains and reduces swelling with cold therapy based on the anatomical location of the application.
Before anything, let’s find out what we mean by a Cryo Cuff.
What is the Cryo Cuff?
Just like a cuff in a blood pressure meter, a cryo cuff is a cold compress type cuff.
It is usually filled with water and ice to help soothe pain, bleeding, swelling, and muscle spasms in any affected part of the body.
It is generally used after surgery, after physical therapy sessions, or following an injury.
Aircast Cryo/cuff comes in different cuff supports to anatomically deliver effective cold therapy to different areas of the body. And, the cooler unit comes with the cuff is compatible with these supports.
Let me explain better about the cooler unit.
