Our device also controls the rate of temperature increase and decrease, as well as the ability to control the level of compression per mm/HG. We also have the ability to control the re-warming curve post cold treatment, which we believe is the key to successful rehabilitation.
We offer a more effective alternative to traditional cryotherapy tools. Pre-operatively Swellaway can reduce pain and swelling on the affected area as necessary, prior to surgery. Post-operatively we reduce pain and swelling while enhancing local blood circulation, which may help speed up the recovery process after surgery.
The Swellaway team works very closely with Professor James Selfe of Manchester Metropolitan University, who comments:
“During the last 4 years Swellaway has gone through extensive research & development, both here at Manchester Met University and our colleagues at the University of Central Lancashire. In addition to being portable and providing precisely controlled treatments, one of the key benefits to the medical profession is the ability to download data which shows the exact usage of the device, when the product is used off-site or at home by athletes”
