Pain Management After Orthopedic Surgery or Injury

Orthopedic surgery hurts!  Orthopedic trauma or surgery causes pain and swelling. The best way to combat pain and swelling is by using a cold therapy unit for relief of these symptoms.  We have all been told to ice an injury, but conventional ice packs and bags of ice are messy and inconvenient and do not maintain a constant, accurate therapeutic temperature range.  Cold therapy units provide a more comfortable cold that improves patient tolerance.

Rehabilitation can be greatly affected by not being able to reduce inflammation which can cause intense pain. Cold therapy units are well known to relieve these symptoms and allow the patient to continue his or her healing process. The CryoTech 100™ cold therapy unit provides pain control after surgery, orthopedic trauma, and sports injury.  Our Iso Tube uni flow pads along with our cold therapy unit provide a more constant flow of cool water to the affected site.

The unique Iso-Tube design of the IsoComforter Cold Therapy pad can reduce fluid accumulation that causes discomfort and pain.  By removing heat from the wounded area, the swelling can be reduced and the recovery time can be shortened as well.

By utilizing ice and water that is circulated from an insulated cold therapy unit (http://www.wisegeek.com/how-do-i-choose-the-best-cold-therapy-unit.htm) to a pad that is applied to your injury or post op site, the system provides continuous cold therapy for an extended period of time between ice changes.

IsoComforter’s cold therapy unit is convenient. The IsoComforter CryoTech 100™ cold therapy unit is designed to avoid any operational confusion and handling. The self priming pump allows the patient to add the appropriate ice and water and just plug in the wall adapter to start the recirculation process.

The CryoTech 100™ cold therapy unit can be used above and below the wounded area without having to manually pump or prime using elevation. IsoComforter recognizes that patients are in some degree of discomfort and we strive to make the recovery process as comfortable and short as possible.

The IsoComforter cold therapy unit is versatile. With a variety of specially designed pads and options like the automobile adapter, the hanging “S” hook for hospital beds, and the wrapping system for back, shoulder and knee, the IsoComforter portable cold therapy unit can provide cold therapy wherever and whenever it’s needed… in the hospital, at home, at work, in the locker room or on vacation. It provides immediate on-the-spot relief for trauma, surgery pain or sports injuries. And the convenient cooler design means you won’t have to refill the ice as often.

IsoComforter cold therapy units are compatible with several different pads, so you decide which pad works for you.
