Our Mission

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.

Worldwide success

HILOTHERAPY® is already used in 20 countries on every continent around the world. It helps patients following surgical procedures, injuries and in cases of chronic disease and the resultant swelling, bruising, oedema and inflammation. It works not only to promote healing, but also helps to reduce pain levels which can result in a significantly reduced intake of pain killers being required.

Others about ourselves
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!
Thomas H.
To the staff at Hilotherm, thank you for this amazing device. It’s great that it can simply be borrowed by private customers. It’s a shame that all doctors/clinics don't offer this treatment as standard.

HILOTHERAPY® is a thermo-treatment approach that is applied locally to damaged body parts, with its effects influencing the oxygen demand of tissues, metabolism, blood circulation and the pain receptors of the affected tissue. Used as a hypothermic treatment, it has slowing effects; as a hyperthermic treatment, its effects are stimulating. These effects of HILOTHERAPY® are obtained using specific temperatures that can be controlled to single-degree precision for each different indication.
