CryoMed XL are the choice of many celebrities and athletes around the world. Cryomed units are equipped with an electric lift to adjust the client’s height in the chamber so that the body is submerged in the hypercooled air up to the neck while the head remains above. For added safety, the CryoMed cryochamber comes standard with a non-locking pivoting door that can be opened at any time. The door safety sensor shuts off the unit automatically if the door is open for more than 3 seconds during a session to prevent the room from filling with gasiform air.
Cryotherapy was originally developed in Japan in 1978 for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, and the benefits have been studied and refined in Europe since then. Cryotherapy is now utilized in the United States, and with amazing benefits.
CryoMed uses liquid nitrogen, lowering the client’s skin temperature to about 30 to 50 degrees F in a period of two or three minutes. Liquid nitrogen is used to make the cold, but clients are not in direct contact with the gas. Our skin reacts to the cold, sending messages to the brain, and it stimulates regulatory functions of the body, assisting areas that might not be working to their fullest potential.
According to Excel Cryotherapy in Albuquerque, New Mexico, “Cryotherapy is a hyper-cooling process that lowers a person’s skin temperature to approximately 30 degrees F for a period of up to three minutes by enveloping the body with extremely cold air at temperatures ranging from -100 F to -274 F. (Liquid nitrogen is used to cool the body, and reduces inflammation.)”
