Cincinnati Sub-zero Electri-Cool II

Non-ice based cold therapy systems like the Cincinnati Sub-zero Electri-Cool II are becoming an alternative to traditional ice-based systems, which carry the risk of causing tissue and skin damage. This localized cold therapy system provides a more consistent cooling therapy by cycling continuous cold water through a pad to the patient at a therapeutic temperature that will not cause skin or tissue damage. And since there’s no ice, nurses don’t have to remember to change ice or deal with cleaning up wet floors.

The Electri-Cool II is lightweight and compact, and it can be attached to the patient’s bed with a bracket or mounted on a stand for easy mobility. Possible applications for the Electri-Cool II include surgical incision treatment, swelling from injury, sprains, strains and more. There are three levels of temperature for personalized patient comfort, and a variety of pads are available for different applications.
