Localised Cold Therapy Systems from CSZ

story-icu3Providing continuous localised therapy to patients can be an important part of surgical recovery. Continuous cold therapy is a common treatment modality specifically after orthopaedic surgery procedures and patients that use this treatment experience significantly less pain during their recovery.13 It has also shown to reduce neuronal pain signal transmission, inhibits the stretch reflex, and reduces muscle spindle activity.1 Patients who receive continuous cold therapy are also more likely to be discharged 1.5 days earlier than those who did not.1

CSZ’s Electri-Cool II and Penguin Cold Therapy systems offer continuous cold therapy to your patients with simple operation and easy application.
