Game Ready was invented to give professional athletes a better way to recover from injuries. Ice packs have become obsolete, and as more research has been conducted the effectiveness of traditional icing has lost its edge. More and more research is showing that ice and compression create the greatest effect in reducing pain, increasing recovery, reducing swelling and returning back to full function.
It was then a no brainer for Physio For Surgery to add it into our clinic to help you get better. If you are a visual learner below is a link to watch how Game Ready works.
In short Game ready delivers adjustable, intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) that mimics natural muscle contractions to “pump” edema (swelling) away from the injury area, stimulate blood flow, and enhance the therapeutic effects of cold therapy.
How Does it Work?
As low as 3°C. Deep penetrating, longer lasting cold that promotes vasoconstriction (stopping bleeding to help reduce swelling), safely relieve pain without narcotics following acute injury or surgery, and reduce metabolic demand, muscle spasms (pain) and inflammation.
Up to 45°C. Promotes vasodilation and increases circulation to the injured area (for a chronic injury that needs more blood flow like lower back pain), support the lymphatic system (the system that heals you), reduce pain and stiffness, and stimulate natural healing after injury or surgery.
Changeover from cold to hot in less than one minute. Rapid Contrast Therapy (RTC) delivery alternately opens and constricts the vascular system in a targeted injury area to relieve pain and increase blood flow without causing additional swelling.
4 levels of compression that range from 5-75 mmHg. Patented intermittent pneumatic compression mimics natural muscle contractions to “pump” swelling away from the injury area, and helps conform the wraps to the body for better surface contact and more effective cold/heat therapy.
What can Game Ready do for you?
Game ready can be used for every condition from an achy low back to a sprained ankle, post surgical knee, it even helps with migraines.
