Using targeted cold air helps treat rheumatic diseases and assists with therapy following operations. The revolutionary process of using cold air devices from MECOTEC opens up completely new possibilities for therapeutic support. Possible treatment areas include analgesia, inflammation inhibition, restricted movement, back pain and neurodermatitis.
The efficiency of these devices is unique. The specific part of the patient’s body is rapidly cooled down while the cooling output can be kept constant for as long as necessary.In cold air therapy, a precisely-dosed amount of extremely cold air is blown directly onto the skin’s surface, selectively extracting warmth from the body. That air has been filtered and cooled down to temperatures of between -32 °C and -60 °C, and is blown onto the desired area of the patient’s body using a treatment hose with an adjustable air flow. Locally extracting heat from the body alleviates pain for athletes, improves joint mobility and supports the reduction in swelling.
