Game Ready Cold Therapy System
Health & Sports Physiotherapy offer the unique opportunity for patients to benefit from the Gamer Ready cold therapy system. Whether you have sustained an acute injury or require post operative management, the Game Ready system can accelerate your recovery.
The Game Ready System combines Intermittent Compression with Circumferential Cold Therapy in one fully adjustable, easy-to-use, and adjustable application. RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) has long been used to treat acute and chronic injury and to assist in the recovery and rehabilitation after Orthopaedic surgery. Developed by scientists and doctors using proprietary NASA space suit technology, the Game Ready System simultaneously delivers both adjustable cold therapy and intermittent compression, making it easy to apply the two most difficult-to-manage aspects of the RICE regime.
The Game Ready System continuously circulates cold water from the control unit’s ice reservoir, via a connector hose, through an inner chamber of the anatomical wrap (this chamber is located closest to the body) before returning to the ice reservoir.
As a complete loop, the cold water is refreshed through the ice before returning through the anatomical wrap, thus delivering continuous cold therapy to the body part, allowing heat to be removed from the treatment site. Simultaneously, the control unit pumps air into the separate, outer chamber of the anatomical wrap, intermittently inflating and deflating according to the pressure setting that is selected.
The compression not only assists in preventing / limiting swelling, but also conforms the Anatomical Wrap to the contours of the body. This increases the surface contact and aids the delivery of the circumferential cold therapy.
MORE EFFECTIVE COLD. MORE EFFECTIVE COMPRESSION. ACTIVE COMPRESSION SQUEEZES BENEFITS OUT OF COLD THERAPY.
Infrared thermal imagery shows that Game Ready’s patented active compression technology enhances the delivery of cold therapy. Game Ready’s combination of active compression and simultaneous cold therapy facilitates faster, longer cooling.Game Ready Wraps provide circumferential therapy covering more surface area.Game Ready Wraps reach key pain points for ACL repair or total knee replacement patients such as the upper shin and back of the knee respectively.
BENEFITS OF COMPRESSION AND ADJUSTABLE COLD THERAPY
1. Decreases pain, muscle spasms, swelling
2. Reduces metabolic activity and cellular demand for oxygen to reduce tissue damage
3. Mimics muscle contractions, pumping oedema out of the injured area
4. Stimulates tissue healing
5. Increases blood flow and delivery of oxygen to the injury site
6. Optimizes lymphatic drainage
