Cryotherapy is based on surface cooling and uses low temperatures to reduce tissue temperature. Cryotherapy incorporates the use of a continuously cooled stream of air with a constant temperature range, which results in a range of thermoregulatory effects that are desirable for various indications, including acute and chronic pain as well as rheumatism.
The compact FRIGOSTREAM cryotherapy unit offers optimised performance in a very small space. It generates cold air with an adjustable current of air and thus enables the targeted cooling of areas of the body and offers known advantages over CO2 and ice packs. If used correctly there is no danger of damaging the skin. FRIGOSTREAM works with an energy source that costs nothing – air – and is therefore always ready for immediate use and has no resource supply problems. Like an air conditioning system, the indoor air is cooled down and blown through a treatment tube, without direct contact to the skin, at temperatures of up to -32 °C. A number of optional attachments and a supporting arm are available to ensure an application that is optimally adapted to the indication.
