PHYSIOLAB® launches Elite unit
At Medica 2016, PHYSIOLAB® is launching its Elite unit. It provides an intuitive clinical toolkit to support physiotherapists, surgeons and clinicians. This includes accelerating soft tissue repair following injury, trauma or surgery, preventing injury in advance of activity and aiding recovery after exercise.
By using cooling, heating and compression combined or separately, PHYSIOLAB® delivers a precise, targeted, repeatable and clinically effective treatment which genuinely maximises the body’s ability to recover. This level of precision and repeatability has simply never been possible before.
As experts in human performance equipment PHYSIOLAB’s ® innovative design overcomes the limitations of existing technologies, driving clinical practice forward to create clarity.
The Elite unit provides:
· Control – All the variables are intelligently controlled with precision and accuracy to respond to the body’s requirements. We sense and control to 0.1°C and +/- 10 mmHg every second.
· Contrast – With this level of control we can deliver temperatures to the body between 6°C and 40°c, either intermittently or continuously over a period of 30 minutes.
· Compression – Our patented Therapy Packs provide true clinical compression with unrivalled conformability across the entire treatment area. The dual layered design ensures pressure can be actively adjusted every second, either continuously or intermittently within a range of 20 to 75 mmHg. This is independently controlled and ensures thermal delivery is not impacted during therapy.
· Consistency – We can provide temperature, compression and fit consistently and accurately time after time. This repeatability means we can quantify and measure recovery.
Simon Withey, CEO at PHYSIOLAB®, explained: “At PHYSIOLAB® our mission is to make the intangible tangible by developing innovative technology for use during performance, recovery and repair. By working with physiotherapists and medical professionals we have developed a toolkit for delivering thermal energy and compression to the body with maximum efficiency. The application of pressure, warming and cooling is commonly used but never with any real precision. It is vital to change this ‘no control’ approach. We believe that we need products as advanced as our bodies because your body deserves better!”
