Offer Athletes Multiple Recovery Options with the Med4 Elite™ Multi-Modality Therapy Unit

When it comes to sports and athletics, some standards are, well, standardized. A football is the same size in Division I as in Division III. A 1500-meter race is always 1500 meters long.

But when it comes to recovery, one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why the Med4 Elite™ recovery system from Game Ready® offers four clinically proven treatment options in a single, flexible and easy-to-use device.

The Advantages of Multi-Modality

Having a single device with multiple modalities means you’re able to choose the best therapy – or combination of therapies – based on the injury, state of post-surgery recovery and stages of rehabilitation. The Med4 Elite’s modalities include:

  • Cryotherapy – With the ability to reach temperatures as low as 38°F/3°C, you can create deep-penetrating, longer-lasting cold to promote vasoconstriction and reduce blood flow, reduce inflammation and edema (swelling), decrease muscle spasms, decrease metabolic demand, and safely relieve pain without narcotics following acute injury or surgery. Cold therapy is recommended immediately following acute injury or surgery and as needed thereafter.
  • Thermotherapy – Generates temperatures as high as 113°F/45°C to promote vasodilation and increase circulation to the injured area, supporting the lymphatic system and reducing pain and stiffness. Heat therapy is recommended after the initial inflammatory response caused by an injury or surgery begins to diminish.
  • Rapid contrast therapy (RCT) – By alternately opening and constricting the vascular system, RCT increases blood flow to an injured area without causing the accumulation of additional edema (swelling). RCT also helps decrease nerve sensitivity to reduce pain. The Med4 Elite is capable of an unprecedented <1 minute changeover rate – for compact, and clean RCT delivery independent of gravity and without messy tubs.
  • Intermittent pneumatic compression therapy (IPC) – By mimicking natural muscle contractions to “pump” edema (swelling) away from the injury area, IPC encourages oxygenated blood flow and helps conform the wraps to the body for better surface contact and more effective cold/heat/contrast therapy.

High-Tech but Easy to Use

The Med4 Elite’s control unit enables comprehensive and flexible treatment options for two simultaneous patients. An intuitive touchscreen interface offers the option to alternate between and combine the four therapeutic modalities while controlling, adjusting, and monitoring treatment times, temperature ranges, and compression settings easily and conveniently.

Easily Integrate with ATX® Wraps

The Med4 Elite System is compatible with a majority of Game Ready’s existing line of dual-action, no-mess ATX® Wraps (Active Temperature Exchange). These low-profile wraps with patented technology provide circumferential coverage, ensure greater surface contact to optimize cold, heat, and rapid contrast therapy of major body parts. They are also anatomically engineered for better fit and comfort. All to help improve outcomes and increase satisfaction with the recovery process.
