Why is a cold compression cuff required?
A cold compress is applied to an injury to help reduce the temperature of the injured tissue. This slows the tissue’s metabolic rate and aids the tissue’s survival immediately after receiving the injury.
The combination of cold therapy and compression will also reduce swelling and discomfort to the injured area.
A Cold compress should be directly applied to the injured muscles immediately after suffering from impact injury.The compression cuff has an elastic band which wraps around the body/limb to hold the ice pack in place. The velcro patch at the end of the band makes for easy application and improves comfortability when wearing.
