CRYOTHERAPY BOOT COMPRESSION SYSTEM
A COMPLETE RECOVERY SYSTEM THAT YOU CAN BOOK TO USE
Reduce recovery time with Aquilo's full lower body cold therapy in one 15-20 minute session. Aquilo's Recovery Pants deliver ice water rapidly to your legs and entire lower body in one easy to use garment. This unique ice pant with passive compression uses full coverage cooling pads layered within a tight outer compression fabric to deliver a full lower body Cryo-Compression treatment.
The Aquilo recovery system circulates ice water around all lower body muscles while keeping you perfectly dry. Immediately upon wearing the pants and starting session , your skin temperature will drop to the optimal recovery range of 6º - 8ºC.
Like an ice baths, Aquilo's portable cryo-compression recovery system is known to help promote recovery and healing to muscles and joints. With Aquilo's cry-compression pant there is no need to alternate cold therapy sessions on each leg or each part of the lower body, you eliminate the need to treat each leg with separate modalities for faster combined recovery session.
HOW DOES BOOKING WORK
At the Tamar Performance Centre we are offering booking of the compression boot system for single use. This allows you to use them post event or training, simply book the boots out and we will arrange for you to come and use them.
The system can be booked out for 30 minute or 60 minute time frames.
The Aquilo Control Unit is filled with ice and water and connected to the Recovery Pants.
When turned on, a powerful pump begins to circulate ice water through the Aquilo Recovery Pants.
This is crucial to your recovery, because the water must travel at a fast enough pace to continuously flow back over the ice (in the Control Unit) to maintain the ideal temperature. So this pump will circulate water throughout your entire lower body in 30 seconds time.
With a flip of the switch you will have optimal ice bath temperature and the addition of the passive compression.
Ice water constantly circulates through the pants during a 15-20 minute treatment keeping the temp at an optimal recovery range of 6º - 8ºC. For multiple treatments continue to add ice.
When the Aquilo System is in use, the plastic water channels (on the inside of the pants) are filled with water. This causes them to expand in dimension and squeeze around your legs, adding to the already highly compressive outer garment, and increasing the overall compression of the device.
The Aquilo Recovery Pants come in a range of sizes to fit all body types.
REDUCE MUSCLE DAMAGE
When you work out your muscles break down and release enzymes into your blood. The blood work on the athletes showed that there was a large presence of Creatine Kinase (CK) in the blood following the workout. This is a bio-marker for muscle breakdown and is a good way to tell how quickly your body is recovering.
The athletes who used the Aquilo system experienced a 40% decrease in CK levels over the 48 hours following the cooling treatment.
It’s tough to begin a workout when you are still sore from the day before. If you follow every workout with an Aquilo cooling session, you can stop the pain before it gets a chance to settle in.
The athletes that used Aquilo after their workout reported a significant decrease in overall pain for 48 hours following the cooling treatment.
Keep in mind that these athletes only used the Aquilo system once, yet continued to see pain reduction 2 days after the treatment. Imagine the additional pain reduction if a second or third treatment was added!
IMPROVE SLEEP QUALITY
Sleep is by far the most important part of your daily training routine. These precious hours of sleep are often the only time your muscles have a chance to rebuild. Many athletes report that they have difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep due to excessive soreness. We asked the athletes in the study to closely monitor their sleeping patterns and report on their quality of sleep.
The results showed that those who were given the Aquilo cooling treatment slept more comfortably for the next 48 hours.
