For many, many years, people have followed the RICE principles (Rest–Ice–Compression–Elevation) to control pain and swelling following a musculoskeletal injury or surgery. But with Game Ready, you can do more than treat symptoms. Going beyond passive, static cold and compression applications, the GRPro 2.1 therapy system works actively and dynamically to accelerate and enhance recovery.*
CLINICALLY PROVEN PERFORMANCE
The game-changing GRPro 2.1 integrates intermittent pneumatic compression and cryotherapy to reduce pain and swelling, reduce muscle spasms, enhance lymphatic function, encourage cellular oxygen supply, and stimulate tissue repair – naturally and without narcotics. Compared to traditional RICE applications, the Game Ready System offers more therapeutic benefits.
COLD AND COMPRESSION THERAPY
Cold therapy (cryotherapy) promotes vasoconstriction and reduces blood flow, reduces inflammation and edema (swelling), decreases muscle spasms, decreases metabolic demand, and safely relieves pain without narcotics. Cold therapy is used immediately following acute injury or surgery and as needed thereafter.
INTERMITTENT PNEUMATIC COMPRESSION THERAPY
Intermittent Pneumatic Compression Therapy (IPC) is used to provide even pressure around an injured area, mechanically reducing the amount of space available for swelling to accumulate, thus increasing lymphatic flow, decreasing swelling, and enhancing tissue healing. IPC has been shown to be most effective when combined with cryotherapy.
