The Aircast Hand and Wrist CryoCuff combines the therapeutic benefits of controlled compression to minimize hemarthrosis (bleeding into joint spaces) and swelling, and cold to minimize pain. The Aircast Cold Compression Therapy System is used by Athletic Trainers and Therapist for carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sports injuries, post-operative recovery, trauma, athletic training rooms, and home use. The Aircast Hand/Wrist Cryo/Cuff is ideal for patients recovering from wrist surgery, carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist pain and bruising. The versatile design of the cuff allows it to be repositioned for desired hand coverage. NON-MOTORIZED.
For added support, support bars are incorporated in the cuff and can be removed if a wider range of motion is desired.
All CryoCuffs can be ordered as a single cuff, or with a cooler (including a tube assembly and insulation disk). The Cooler is available separately and can be used with any model in the CryoCuff line.
When the AutoChill system is used with the Hand and Wrist CryoCuff it should only be used in a medical facility or clinical environment with direct healthcare provider supervision.
- Anatomic cuff design for complete coverage of affected area
- Measured compression for patient comfort
- Controlled cold eliminates the risk of tissue damage
- Detachable cooler allows for uninterrupted treatment
- Support bars provide additional support
Step By Step Instructions
The Cryo/Cuff provides two functions:
- Compression - to keep swelling down.
- Ice Therapy - to keep swelling down and to help minimize pain.
The Cryo/Cuff has three main parts:
- The Cuff - a pouch like device that is filled with ice cold water.
- The Tube - goes from Cuff to Canister, and is detachable. It allows you to exchange the water in the Cuff.
- The Canister - holds ice and water.
At the time of surgery the Cryo/Cuff will be placed on the knee after the dressings are applied. It will be filled at this time. The canister should also be filled with ice and water prior to surgery.
THE WATER IN THE CUFF SHOULD BE "EXCHANGED" OR "RECHARGED" EVERY ONE OR TWO HOURS. THE CUFF SHOULD BE FULL BUT ALSO COMFORTABLE.
To exchange the water:
- Connect tube to Cuff.
- Open air valve on top of Canister.
- Lower Canister below knee level (set on floor is best).
- Completely drain warm water out of Cuff. Allow it to go into the Canister (to speed recharging process swish water around in Canister). Allow enough time for water to get cold.
- Refill Cuff by raising Canister 15-18 inches above the knee, allowing water in the Canister to drain into the Cuff.
- Patient should disconnect tube when the Cuff is filled to a comfortable level.
* THE ICE IN THE CANISTER WILL NEED TO BE REFILLED EVERY 6 HOURS OR SO (FOR BEST RESULTS, LEAVE CUFF FILLED AND DISCONNECT TUBE. EMPTY THE WATER FROM THE CANISTER AND FILL IT TO THE TOP WITH ICE).
