What is Cryotherapy?
· The use of the natural cold represented by ice and cooled liquids for pain relief and reduction of edemas resulting from injuries, burns and cranial aches, was already mentioned in the ancient papyri.
· Cryotherapy [kryos- cold; therapya- treatment (Greek)] is a branch of physiotherapy whose treatment techniques are characterized by the application of cold as the main physical treatment factor. It involves application of moderately super-low temperatures (from -100 °С to –180 °С)
· Aerocryotherapy (hereinafter referred to as ACT) is a treatment method, which involves application of low temperatures. This is an innovative method of physiotherapy.
· The Japanese researcher Taimo Yamauchi pioneered the implementation of ACT when in 1981 he showed its effectiveness in the treatment of rheumatic arthritis.
Source of technology…
· The achieved technology has been developed within the framework of the project on a theme " A Space Cold " and has been used as a fast and effective method of treatment in extreme conditions.
How does it work?
· For the aerocryotherapy treatment the patient is placed ( from 1 to 3 minutes) in a vertical, thermally insulated chamber (tub), which for a short time is filled with mixture of air and nitrogen (temperature from -170 to -180°С). The low-temperature mixture in the chamber only reaches the level of patient’s shoulders, with the upper part of the chamber enabling the patient to breath normal atmospheric air.
