Ice and Compression

Posted on September 1, 2019 by Categories: Cryochaps

Why is the Cryochaps compression sleeve so important? Tissues become significantly colder when using ice and compression
rather than just ice alone.

Compression may cause an improved contact between the skin and Cyrochap. Compression reduces blood flow, and less warm blood can flow through the area. Combined with the cold Cryochap, this reduces the ability to warm the area being cooled. This has been proven* to produce significantly colder tissue temperatures than ice alone.
