Environmentally friendly cryotherapy in a compact design
The compact FRIGOSTREAM cryotherapy unit offers optimised performance in a minimum of space and is available in five different versions. It generates cold air with an adjustable current of air of up to 1500 l/min and thus enables targeted cooling of body areas with the recognised advantages over CO² and ice packs. If used correctly the risk of cold damage is excluded.
FRIGOSTREAM operates with an energy source that costs nothing - air - and is therefore always ready for use and has no resource replenishing problems. Like an air conditioning system, the ambient air is cooled down and blown onto the skin through a treatment tube without direct contact at temperatures of up to –60 °C (see technical data in catalogue at downloads below). Various tubes and nozzles permit easy targeted treatment.
The de-icing function, which requires no water emptying on the users part (with the exception of C200/C600), is particularly user-friendly. The FRIGOSTREAM line refrigerant loop is a closed system and requires no maintenance whatsoever.

Cryotherapy is based on surface cooling and uses low temperatures to reduce tissue temperature. Cryotherapy incorporates the use of a continuously cooled stream of air with a constant temperature range, which results in a range of thermoregulatory effects that are desirable for various indications, including acute and chronic pain as well as rheumatism.
Here are some of the physiological effects of cryotherapy:
- Influence on sensory nerves
- Reduction in nerve conduction
- Immediate vasoconstrictive effect
FRIGOSTREAM is also available with a special smaller diameter tube to maintain cooling at a constant level over an extended period for thermal laser treatments.
