1. HOW LONG DOES IT STAY COLD?

These products have been designed to stay cold according to their use, the Eye Compress (Eyes Pack) has a specially designed gel that will last cold between 10 to 25 minutes. This difference in time varies depending on two factors: a) room temperature, b) patient temperature. Of course, the application of the eye mask will last longer as you reapply because temperature of the skin and muscles tissues have been lowered with prior applications and there is less temperature exchange between the eye mask and the face.

The main reason why this product stays cold 10 to 25 minutes only, is because we do not want to apply cold in this area for long periods of time to avoid any possible tissue damage. Cryo Therapy (the use of cold) constructs the capillary vessels and diminishes the amount of blood flow in the area where is being applied. If cold is being applied in an area with thousands of capillary vessels for a long period of time you will decrease the amount of blood in this area, therefore oxygen will not reach the tissues and could be damaged.

The recommended applications is 15 minutes on, rest for 15-20 minutes them reapply and keep this therapy for at least 72 hours after the surgery or trauma.

For the Full Face Compress and the Breast compress, we use the same kind of gel that for the Eye compress, therefore the time these products stay cold is approximately the same as the Eye compress.

For all the other Cryo-Products (general compresses) the gel used in these compresses is a thicker gel that can deliver cold temperature to a larger area for longer periods of time. The reason why this gel last cold longer than the other is for two reasons: A) more volume of gel per compress, b) thicker gel that experiences slower temperatures exchange. These products stay cold between 30-60 minutes.

The recommended application is 15 - 30 minutes over the desired area, then remove for at least 15 - 30 minutes than reapply for the same time.

2. HOW COLD DOES IT GET?

Both types of gel have the same properties even when they do not freeze solid at below freezing temperatures, the temperature they get is exactly the same as the place where they are in. As an example, if the user's freezer temperature is 0 F the gel temperature will be 0 F, if the freezer is -15 F they will be -15 F too.

The gel will never be colder that the freezer temperature.

3. WHICH PRODUCT IS BEST FOR WHICH APPLICATION?

Cryo Therapy (the application of cold has been recommended for the treatment of trauma and has been widely accepted as one of the most effective first aid methods. It is extensively used for the treatment of traumatic injuries, strains, sprains, muscle spasms, tooth aches, eye inflammation or irritation, post-operative treatments. The prompt application of cold will reduce the risk of hematoma formation and will reduce local swelling by slowing the flow of blood and other fluids through the injured or operated area.

These Cryo Therapy products have been designed to apply cold temperature to different areas where the application of cold is needed. Each product has been designed for different parts of the body making the application of cold simple, not messy or cumbersome.

HOT:

Heat therapy delivers hot temperature to the upper layers of the skin, when this heat is absorbed by the skin and muscle tissues it increases blood supply. The increase in blood supply causes a local vasodilatation reflex in the tissue immediately beneath the compress. These applications of heat therapy will help increase comfort and relaxation of the muscles and/or joint relieving aches and pains.

4. WHAT MAKES THESE PRODUCTS DIFFERENT FROM ALL THE OTHER HOT/COLD THERAPY PRODUCTS?

These products are manufactured with the fines materials available in the market. Advantages like design, innovation, technology and engineering make these the best performing products money can buy.

We do not only make a hot/cold therapy product, we make a special product designed for every need for today's physicians.

The Gel is a non-freezable, non-toxic gel that works as a flexible ice. The Plastic used in the manufacturing of these products is FDA approved, and all products can be Gas sterilized, they are reusable and very easy to use. The anatomical design of all these products makes them very unique and helpful.

5. WHY DO THESE PRODUCTS HAVE DIFFERENT COLORS?

The eye masks have different colors for the following reasons:

An Impulse Buying Behavior study was conducted many years ago to define the colors for the eye mask. The results showed that our of a 100% of the people involved in this study, 54% were women and they chose the red and men did not mind the difference in color.

To be different from all other competitors.

For fun.

6. HOW DO WE HEAT IT?

We strongly recommend submerged in hot tap water,We do not recommend Microwave use for heating, for it could damage your compress and void the warranty. If you must follow the instructions closely.

7. WHAT TEMPERATURE SHOULD IT BE FROZEN AT?

It does not matter, they all can be frozen to the same temperature as the freezer temperature.

8. WHAT'S THE GEL INSIDE MADE FROM? DOES IT FREEZE?

The gel used in these products is a non-freezable gel made from non-toxic materials. In case a product breaks and the gel touches the skin, there will not be any allergic reactions.

During Clinical and Safety Studies, this gel was injected into rabbits and placed over their eyes and non of them have died or experienced any bad reactions.

This gel doesn't freeze because it is made with some non-toxic, USP, non-freezable agents.

9. HOW COME THE EYE MASK HAS NO "HOLES" IN THE MIDDLE LIKE THE ONES THEY SELL IN CHAIN STORES AND DRUGSTORES?

The answer is very simple, because this is not a chap product. It has been designed to meet and touch with its soft and pliable membranes the area where the cold therapy must be applied.

Some people may say: If you don't have holes how can I walks around the house?, well, after surgery you just do not want to be walking around the house, you need to apply as a therapy and dedicate the few minutes needed for the eye compress to work. Besides you want that area to be treated with cold, so therefore as a conclusion, the other eye masks that have the holes over the eyes have very poor design and doubt they can deliver effective therapy over the eye area.

10. CAN THESE PRODUCTS BE STERILIZED? HOW?

Yes, they all can be sterilized.

The recommended sterilization process is Gas sterilization by Ethylene Oxide (ETO).

By using the standards for ETO, our products (gel packs) will meet or exceed the specifications of Ethylene Oxide Sterilization. The product should be placed in a double wrap for proper presentation or storage.

We also suggest that radiation sterilization can be applied to these products. If you do not need to sterilize the product and would like to use it with another patient, the product could be washed with Cidex as long as you make sure that it will not touch directly the skin or an open wound.

Always use a sterile gauze in between the patients face and the compress , specially after any procedure.

11. DO THEY CONTAIN LATEX?

No, all of our Cryo Therapy Products are Latex Free.
