How Do I Use the Cryo/Cuff?
For information on how to prepare, use and apply the cuff, please follow the step-by-step guide below:
Step One: Prepare the Cooler
Start by connecting the blue tube to the cooler. Fill the cooler to the line with water and add ice to the top. Next, place the insulation disk on top of the ice and close the lid. Allow up to five minutes for the water to cool and shake the cooler occasionally.
Step Two: Apply the Cuff
Undo the posterior strap and open the cuff so that it is flat. Position the cuff over the foot with the logo facing upwards and the disconnect valve pointing towards your toes. (See figure 1).
Wrap the ends of the cuff under the foot and secure using the straps provided. Now wrap the posterior strap around the back of the heel and secure. (See figure 2).
Step Three: Fill the Cuff
To fill the cuff, start by connecting the blue tube to the cuff. If you are using the standard Aircast Cold Therapy Cooler, open the air vent located on the top of the cooler lid and raise the cooler no more than fifteen inches above the cuff. (See figure 3).
Hold the cooler in this position for about thirty seconds or until the cuff is full. Close the air vent on the cooler lid and disconnect the cuff from the cooler by the pressing the metal tab on the quick disconnect valve.
Step Four: Rechill the Water
To rechill the water, reconnect the blue tube to the cuff and raise the cuff above the cooler. This will allow the water to drain from the cuff back into the cooler. Allow up to two minutes for the water to rechill before repeating the filling process.
For further information about the cuff and its usage, please see the manual below:
How Long Can I Use the Cuff For?
You can use the cuff for up to two hours per session. It is recommended that you wait at least twenty minutes between uses.
Can I Apply the Cuff Directly onto My Skin?
To avoid risk of skin burn, it is vital that you wrap the skin of the target area with a cloth or bandage before using the cuff.
How Do I Clean the Cuff?
For best cleaning results, simply wash the cuff with soap and hot water before rinsing and leaving to air dry. This process can also be used to clean the blue tube and cooler units also.
