This is the power supply unit for the new Cryo Cuff IC lid which can be bough separately. The IC lid features an integrated pneumatic pump within the lid, which provides a 45 second on / 30 second off cycle of automated compression and cold therapy. It is very easy to operate but does require power.
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 Cryo/Cuff System reduces the need for multiple ice packs in the freezer and is great for medium to long term use.
