  • ORTHOPEDIC CRUTCHES

    Orthopedic crutches are devices used for assisting the lower limbs in cases when walking requires additional support. They are the most common orthoses used when the patient suffers any kind of disability for walking due to injury or rehabilitation.

  • CRYOTHERAPY

    Cryotherapy is a set of procedures that use cold temperature as a medical therapy. It differs from hypothermia because the latter reduces the central temperature of the organism, while cryotherapy reduces the peripheral temperature and usually it is short lasting.

    The cold stimulus reduces heat from the body, granting a calming effect on swelling processes caused by multiple factors. The comfortable treatments with hot & cold bags and instant cold bags ease the application of cryotherapy in any place and situation.
