This product requires the Aircast Cryo Cuff Cooler (available separately).
The Aircast Back/Hip/Rib Cryo/Cuff combines the therapeutic benefits of controlled compression and cold to minimise haemarthrosis and swelling and reduce pain. The versatile cuff design enables it to be used on either the back, hip or rib area.
After a slipped disk, spinal surgery, neck of femur fracture, broken ribs or just a particually hard training session the Aircast Cryo Cuff for the back, hip or ribs is the ideal rehabillitation tool. The cuff is anatomically designed to completely fit the abdomen providing maximum coverage of the trunk and allowing the whole surface area to have the continual cooling benefit of cryotherapy.
After an injury blood vessels are damaged and this allows blood cells and fluid to seep into spaces around the joint, resulting in swelling and bruising. When ice is applied the temperature decreases and constricts local blood vessels, slowing metabolism and decreasing fluid build-up. Ice can also numb nerve endings, reducing the transfer of impulses to the brain that register as pain.
The cuff needs attaching to the Aircast Cryo Cuff Cooler (available separately) and will hold water and ice needed for six to eight hours of cryotherapy. The durable cooler comes with a tube assembly and insulation disk and simple-to-follow directions for use.
Please note that this item cannot be returned for a refund once used with water. Per check size of the cuff before filling with water.
