After a stress fracture, shin splints or just a particularly hard training session the Aircast Cryo Cuff for the calf is the ideal rehabilitation tool. The cuff is anatomically designed to completely fit the calf providing maximum coverage of the lower leg and allowing the whole surface area to have the continual cooling benefit of cryotherapy.
After an injury, blood vessels are damaged which 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 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. Please check the size of the cuff before filling it with water.
