Cold therapy equipment is designed to provide relief from pain and inflammation. It is a type of physical therapy that uses cold temperatures to reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain. Cold therapy is often used to treat injuries such as sprains, strains, and tendonitis, as well as post-operative pain.
Cold therapy equipment typically consists of a cold pack, a cold wrap, and a cold machine. Cold packs are filled with a gel or liquid that can be frozen and applied directly to the injured area. Cold wraps are designed to be wrapped around the affected area, providing a cold sensation without direct contact with the skin. Cold machines are designed to circulate cold water or air around the injured area, providing continuous cold therapy.
The price range for cold therapy equipment varies depending on the type and brand. Cold packs and wraps can range from $10 to $50, while cold machines can range from $200 to $1000. Some of the most popular manufacturers of cold therapy equipment include Polar Products, Icy Hot, and TheraPAQ.
