Aircast Knee Cryo/Cuff Cold Compression Therapy is clinically proven to help reduce post-operative swelling and regain range of motion. The Aircast Knee Cryo/Cuff is ideal for a patient recovering from ACL surgery or ligament injury repairs. The cuff is anatomically designed to completely fit the knee providing maximum cryotherapy. The Aircast Cryo/Cuff IC Cold Compression Therapy provides both gravity and motorized cold and compression therapy for flexibility of care. An integrated pneumatic pump within the cooler lid provides automated cold and compression therapy, with simplicity of design and ease-of- use operation.
Cold Compression is a combination of cryotherapy and static compression, commonly used for the treatment of pain and inflammation after acute injury or surgical procedures.
Cryotherapy, the use of ice or cold in a therapeutic setting, has become one of the most common treatments in orthopedic medicine. The primary reason for using cryotherapy in acute injury management is to lower the temperature of the injured tissue, which reduces the tissue's metabolic rate and helps the tissue to survive the period following the injury. It is well documented that metabolic rate decreases by application of cryotherapy.
Static Compression is often used in conjunction with cryotherapy for the care of acute injuries. To date, the primary reason for using compression is to increase external pressure on the tissue to prevent edema formation (swelling). This occurs by hindering fluid loss from the vessels in the injured area, making it more difficult for fluids to accumulate. Ice with compression is significantly colder than ice alone due to improved skin contact and increased tissue density caused by extended static compression. Tissue reaches its lowest temperature faster and the tissue maintains its cool even after treatment ends.
