Physicool is used within the NHS, private hospitals and by healthcare professionals to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation across a wide range of applications.
We are always looking for new ways to improve patient aftercare. Physicool reduces patient’s pain and gets them back home quicker. Physicool not only mobilises patients quicker than Cryocuff, it is also a third of the cost. Dr. Simon Garrett, Consultant Trauma & Orthopedic Surgeon, Dorchester County Hospital NHS Trust
Integrated cold and compression is clinically proven to help reduce swelling and regain range of movement. Reservoir fuelled cryotherapy cuffs superseded ice. Now, due to the advantages offered, surgeons and therapists are adopting Physicool as their preferred cooling device.
Physicool was initially used post-surgery on patients following knee replacement. When placed on a limb the Coolant (rapidly evaporating alcohols) evaporates absorbing latent heat – reducing swelling and pain. The bandage is manufactured using an open-cell weave which acts as the conduit for the Coolant and offers 2 to 3 hours of cooling before needing to be recharged.
Due to the initial success achieved post-total knee arthroplastry (Garrett, 2012); Physicool is now being used to enhance patient rehabilitation post-operatively across all body parts, traumas, joint inflammation, haematoma’s and rheumatoid arthritis.
