Cryo Cuff - Frequently Asked Questions

A Cryo Cuff is a cold and a compression therapy that is used to releive pain and swelling in patients post therapy. This therapy is called Cryo therapy. A cryo cuff is basically a device that is wrapped around the body part that needs post-operative care be it knee, shoulder, hip, hand, wrist, ankle, elbow or rib. The device is filled with cold water. It basically has 4 parts namely a cuff, a cooler, an insulation disk and a tube.

Now apart from this basic information on what is cryo cuff and how it works, there are a lot of other questions that appear frequently in newsgroups and in the minds of the people who use this product or those who plan to use it. Some of these questions are listed below.

- Yes, you can buy just the cord. Check the link below.

Q. My ankle cuff has gone bad however I still have the cooler and the tube. Is there anyway that I can purchase only the cuff?

- Yes, you can certainly buy the Aircast Cryo Cuff. Please check the link below.

Q. I have surgery scheduled after 2 weeks. I am not sure what size to buy post operation. Can you suggest a size? My measurement is 18" above the patella.

- You should go for a Medium size.

Q. I have used my unit for only a week and today it refuses to turn on. What should I do now? 

- If the unit is only a week old and it has stopped working, you can get it replaced. If it has been bought from us then you can send it back to us and we will replace it for you. 

Q. For how long does the unit keeps water cold once filled?

- The unit cannot be plugged into the car however the power supply of the unit currently uses 120V at 60 Hz 18 watts as Input and 8.5V DC, 900 mA. Output is unregulated DC. Output voltage at nominal line voltage should be 7VDC at 1.6 amp.

Q. I have a collateral ligament sprain. Can I wear a cryo cuff for recovering from it? Can it also be worn during my exrecise regime?

- Yes, cryo cuff is a very good option to recover from the Medial Collateral Ligament sprain. You can use it before and after the exercise but not while exercising.

Q. I have a swelling in the knee and I am going to purchase a Medium size cuff for myself. Will it get loose after the swelling reduces?

- No, it would not get loose.

Q. Please give me knstructions on how to drain the cuff.

  • Empty the cooler first and put it on the ground with the lid off. 
  • Squeeze the cuff to dran the water from the cuff to the cooler.
  • Empty the cooler again.
  • Repeat the process if required.

Q. There is an O shaped ring on my knee cryo cuff which is no longer sealing. Please I want a replacement for that ring. Can I buy one?

- The ring cannot be bought however, you can replace the cooler or the tube.

Q. Will I get cold therapy only at the front of my knee?

- The cryo cuff provides a total contact therapy. The complete cuff is filled with cold water and it provides cold therapy to the entire area.

Q. I just had a knee replacement operation and my knee is all swollen up and inflamed. Which knee cryo cuff would you recommend?

- Both motorized Knee Cryo Cuff and Non Motorized Knee Cryo Cuff will work for you. In the Motorized version, the cold water is pumped into the cuff through a pump. The non motorized version uses gravity to pump water into the pump. Motorized version is much more convenient and easy to use.

Children's coloring is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to spend time with interest and benefit. This activity is suitable for toddlers from 1.5 years old. So what's the use of coloring books?
Painting a certain object, familiar or unfamiliar to himself, the child replenishes his knowledge about the shape, color of this object, develops observation. At first, in the picture, both the sun may turn out to be green and the crocodile orange. This is normal: the child learns the world, transfers it to a sheet of paper, trying to reproduce colors. By these actions, he expands his horizons. Therefore, to begin with, choose objects familiar to the baby: a ball, an apple, a pear, a soft toy, etc.
When coloring, fine motor skills of the hands develops, which is directly related to the development of the baby's thinking, as well as the success of mastering writing skills. At first, coloring should not contain too many small details. This will allow the child to focus on each object separately.
Drawings should have a wide outline. For such a contour, it will be difficult for the baby's insecure handle. This allows you to hide natural errors and gives you confidence. The outlines of the pictures should be smooth, without corners and complex bends.
As the child grows up and masters the painting technique, the number of small details in the drawing increases and the figure itself becomes more complex.
In addition to motor skills, the child's volitional sphere also develops: after all, he needs to try very hard so as not to go beyond the boundaries of the drawing, he needs to learn how to control the pressure of the pencil so as not to tear the paper. Coloring develops the child's perseverance and attention. Here's an example of good coloring page -  <a href=>Image</a>

Coloring pages are the way to the world of fine arts, to the world of creativity, this is the development of the child's artistic taste. You can invite the child to paint on the picture and come up with a plot of the picture, based on the content of the painted one.
Mixing paints, obtaining new colors and shades is also a creative, educational, interesting and even "magical" process for a child.
Coloring involves improving both the complexity of the drawing and the choice of tools. At first, it can generally be coloring with fingers using water (there are such coloring), then - pencils, felt-tip pens, paints.
