How Does it Work?

The Cryotec-2 system consists of a selection of wrap-around cold compression cuffs and a microprocessor controlled pump unit.

The pump unit is filled with ice and water and the tubes are attached to the cuff using the purpose-made quick release dual connector. The limb is normally intermittently compressed with a 30-second cycle (10 seconds compression, 20 seconds relaxation). If desired, the pump unit can be set to offer continuous cold compression.

The unit offers an extremely effective way to treat the majority of sports related injuries, including sprains, strains and bruising. It can also be used the speed up recovery following orthopaedic surgery.

Why hire a cryo-compression device rather than buying?

If you are using the Cryotec device post-surgically or even after a sports injury, chances are you may not need the device long-term. Therefore, Medi-Rent offers a rental option to provide you with the most affordable rehab solution.

Cuff Range

An extensive range of Cryo Cuffs have been ergonomically designed to offer both a high degree of comfort combined with a snug fit to ensure that the maximum energy transfer is obtained for every treatment session.

The system uses self-sealing valve connectors which ensure minimum spillage. All cuffs can be easily fitted and removed by the patient with the integrated comfort strap system.

There are two types of cuffs available:

  • Cryo 2 original hard wearing design, gives good thermal conductivity with ease of fitting.
  • SureFlow patented insert design guarantees excellent thermal conductivity whilst ensuring it gives a constant temperature across the treatment area and avoids blockages. Secured using separate external jackets that gives insulation to avoid condensation build up.

Our Service to Post-Surgical Patients

Medi-Rent offers a three-step rental service designed for patients recovering from orthopaedic surgery.

Step 1. We deliver the Cryotec-2 system to the patient’s hospital the day before the surgery, ready for the patient to use post-operatively.

Step 2. On discharge the patient takes the Cryotec-2 system home with them so as they may continue the Cryo-compression at home. The unit comes with simple to understand instructions and we offer support should they run into any difficulties.

Step 3. After the initial two weeks, we will contact the client to arrange collection of the Cryotec-2 system from their home. They also have the option to continue the rental if required.

Price

$195 for two weeks including delivery and collection within Sydney

Testimonial

The Cryotec cold-compression unit has been the most fantastic investment  for my shoulder reconstruction recovery. The Medi-Rent staff delivered the unit to my hospital and nurses fitted it while I was recovering in the ward overnight.

I initially rented the unit for two weeks but it has been so fantastic I used it for four weeks as it has allowed me to stop all pain medication after day two! I had no bruising at all either!

Thanks Medi-Rent, I really appreciated the great service!
