Product Description and Features:
The Aircast Knee Cryo/Cuff AutoChill System combines the benefits of intermittent compression and ice therapy to minimize knee joint pain and tissue swelling following injury, rehabilitation sessions, or surgery.
The Knee Cryo/Cuff features an anatomically designed wrap that allows for complete coverage and treatment of the knee joint. When the cooler is filled with ice cold water, the AutoChill unit pumps water into the wrap to decrease pain and provide a beneficial cold compressive therapy that reduces swelling in and around the knee joint.
The AutoChill system is an electric powered version of the standard knee Cryo/Cuff that works to automatically exchange warm water in the wrap with cold water from the cooler and create a comfortable intermittent pulsating pressure. The AutoChill pump eliminates the need for manual water recycling and offers a continuously cold treatment. Benefits of combined cold and intermittent compression therapy include:
- Decreased pain
- Less post-operative and post-injury swelling and damage to the joint and surrounding tissues
- Earlier return to full range of motion
- Decreased need for pain medications
- Faster return to function
Each Cryo/Cuff wrap is part of an interchangeable system that allows the cooler and air pump to be used with any wrap attachment. The cooler holds enough water and ice for 6 to 8 hours of cryotherapy treatment and the enclosed wrap and cooler is easier to use and more beneficial than leaky ice packs and compressive elastic wraps and bandages. The detachable portable cooler, and easy to apply cuff allows for treatment in the hospital, athletic training room, home, work, sideline, or while traveling. The Knee Cryo/Cuff AutoChill System is available in three sizes and includes a knee wrap, attachment hoses, insulation disc, wall power cord adapter plug, cooler, and the AutoChill electric air pump. Additional wraps are available separately.
