Why its prescribed – It is a combined cold therapy and DVT prevention treatment all in one, so as well as reducing pain and swelling, you will be receiving treatment to prevent blood clots.
How it works – The machine will be pre-programmed so all you have to do is apply the cold wrap, the DVT calf wraps, and turn on. Power switch is located on the back of the machine, next to where the power cord inserts. If you are wanting to use for cold therapy only, on the front right side of the control panel will be two buttons listing calf and foot. Hold calf down for approximately 1 second and it will cycle through left, right, bilateral, and off. On your next use of the unit, it will reset to its original settings to run both cold and DVT therapies.
