Applying ice is known as cold therapy and helps reduce pain and swelling. Using a bandage or wrap to apply light pressure is known as compression therapy. Cold and compression therapy after surgery or injury is very effective in reducing inflammation, pain, and swelling.
CIRCULATING COOLING DEVICES
In active, circulating cooling devices, a motorized pump circulates chilled water and may also provide pneumatic compression.
* Game Ready™ Accelerated Recovery System is an active circulating cooling device combined with a pneumatic component. The system consists of various soft wraps and a computer control unit to circulate the water through the wraps and provide intermittent pneumatic compression.
