Knee Splint's Multi-Compartment Technology Speeds Rehabilitation from Injuries
Date:11/11/2009

DEFUNIAK SPRINGS, Fla., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Professional Products, Inc. (PPI), a leader and innovator in orthopaedic solutions for nearly five decades, today announced its innovative new Pneumatic Knee Splint (PKS Cryo(TM)). A variable compression knee splint with a breathable, anti-migration wrap, the PKS Cryo (www.PKSCryo.com) offers cost-effective relief from pain and edema in treating post-operative repairs, ligament and soft tissue injuries.

The migration and sag of freezable gel is a problem for products that treat soft tissue injuries to the knee. The PKS Cryo's revolutionary multiple compartment technology solves this problem by confining the gel to the optimal location for controlling edema. Cryotherapy is provided by the patented FirstICE® continuous cold therapy system. An average FirstICE® ice pack delivers up to four hours of cold therapy, far beyond the average of competitors.

The ability of the PKS Cryo to inflate and deflate is another significant advantage in treatment. This is because adjustable pneumatic support, combined with cryotherapy, provides more effective control of edema than cryotherapy alone.

The benefit of cryotherapy with peripheral compression increases when two modalities -- cold and air -- are used together. Velcro® Compatible Hyper Foam with Tricot Lining and Anti-Migration Strapping keeps the PKS Cryo in place during patient ambulation. The splint simplifies treatment for clinicians, lowers costs, reduces swelling and pain, and provides superior comfort.

Part of PPI's popular ezyWRAP® line (www.ezywrap.com), the PKS Cryo is available with a removable air-gel combo bag or fixed air bag with removable ice packs from the FirstICE® cold therapy system. For details, or to order, visit www.PKSCryo.com.
