Each and every one of us in our family has benefited from our Hilotherapy device already. Apart from using it for small day-to-day aches and pains, we have applied it more specifically in the case of the following injuries/procedures: wisdom tooth extractions, syndesmosis ankle ligament surgery, dislocated thumb, ankle ligament rupture, joint capsule separation in thumb. It really can’t even remotely be compared to the traditional methods of cold application with ice or gel packs!
The areas of application of HILOTHERAPY® are wide ranging, with special cuffs designed for each indication and affected body part that integrate an intricate capillary system into their design. This guarantees the uniform effects of the temperature applied onto the injured tissues. We would be delighted to advise you further on which cuffs are best suited to your needs.
People whose quality of life is temporarily reduced stand at the centre of our focus. Using HILOTHERAPY®, we would like to help to improve how you feel. A faster recovery following surgery or injury is a key objective, in addition to alleviating complaints resulting from chronic diseases and limiting particular complications, such as those occurring due to chemotherapy. We are highly motivated and dedicated to the task of helping patients with our treatment approaches, in close collaboration with doctors and other therapists.
We originally decided to get a Hilotherapy device for treatment of my knee arthritis at home. Since then, however, it has really become an indispensable “family member”. We still, of course, use the device for my knee osteoarthritis, where it helps me a great deal to stay pain-free and keep playing active sports, getting me back on my feet whenever I have overstressed my joints. We have found further applications for headaches, sprains and bruises, or even after insect bites or burns. Cooling injuries with ice or frozen gel – something that I also used to do – doesn’t even come close to the effectiveness of Hilotherapy.
Particularly in my hands, the feeling of numbness and the pains I had in my joints and tendons have almost completely disappeared. I put this miraculous improvement down to using your cooling glove-type hand cuffs. I often think back to the chemotherapy sessions when I was in treatment, which would go on for up to 8 hours, and how they would be so much more tolerable because I was now able to read. Before using this treatment, reading would have been unthinkable if I was using the ice packs that were offered to me at the clinic. Now I hope that, with time, I’ll regain the sensitivity that I previously had in my feet.
My daughter fell out of a bunk bed when she was 4 years old. As surgery was only possible the following morning, I made sure to keep her jaw cool for the entire night. She had no swelling and didn’t require any pain killers, all thanks to Hilotherapy. As a family with three daughters, we’ve had plenty of opportunities to put Hilotherapy to good use. We can only hope to never be without our Hilotherapy device again!
