Med4Elite is an elite contrast therapy that reduces swelling and pain related to injuries. Combining Hot and Cold Therapy can also treat other injuries which includes working in conjunction with your post-surgery rehabilitation. Used by elite athletes to reset the nervous system, improve nitric oxide, and promote repair.
[DOWN TO 38°F/3°C]
Creates its own deep-penetrating, longer-lasting cold to promote vasoconstriction and reduce blood flow, helping to reduce inflammation and edema (swelling), decrease muscle spasms, and safely relieve pain. Used immediately following acute injury or surgery and as needed thereafter.
[UP TO 113°F/45°C]
Generates its own controllable heat to promote vasodilation and increase circulation to the injured area, helping to support the lymphatic system while reducing pain and stiffness. Heat therapy is used after the initial inflammatory response caused by an injury or surgery begins to diminish?.
[<1 MINUTE CHANGEOVER]
Rapid contrast therapy (RCT) alternately opens and constricts the vascular system, helping to increased blood flow to an injured area without causing the accumulation of additional edema (swelling). RCT also helps decrease nerve sensitivity to reduce pain. The Med4 Elite is capable of an unprecedented <1 minute changeover rate – for compact and clean RCT delivery independent of gravity and without messy tubs.
[4 LEVELS, 5-75 MM HG]
Game Ready’s patented technology delivers adjustable, intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC). IPC mimics natural muscle contractions to “pump” edema (swelling) away from the injury area, helping to encourage oxygenated blood flow and to conform the wraps to the body for better surface contact and deeper penetrating cold/heat/contrast therapy. IPC has been shown to be most effective when combined with cryotherapy.
