Overview of Therapy Solution

This particular cold therapy system is designed for regular use throughout the day. Many doctors and physical therapists recommend that athletes recovering from injuries to do several ice therapy sessions such as 20 minutes on 20 minutes off, or 30 minutes on 30 minutes off throughout the day. This type of constant icing is essential to get the inflammation and swelling down so that the healing process can begin.

The Don Joy Iceman is designed specifically for this situation.

It is comprised of a large cooler bucket with a hose connector for using attachments. The hose has an attachment that connects to various pads that are specially made for specific parts of the body. This allows a patient to leave the pad wrapped onto their knee, shoulder, ankle, or other body part that needs to be cooled. This allows the watercooler to be separated from the patient during non use and while being refilled.

Remember to place a light towel in between the pad and the skin. Lightly secure the pad in place, too much pressure will not allow the water to run properly and also can be uncomfortable. Make sure to not run the system longer than the doctor /therapist has instructed as ice can be damaging if left onto one spot for too long.

Self Ice Treatment Process

Using a comprehensive cold therapy system is relatively simple. Once the pad has been secured to the body part that needs treatment with soft bandage wraps, the patient can leave it in place for hours on end.

  1. Fill up the water cooler with Ice and fill to the line with water.
  2. Put the lid back on the cooler.
  3. Plug the cable into the pad cable.
  4. Plug in the water cooler pump and turn it on.
  5. Adjust the flow of water on the dial to allow water to flow through the pad cooling the body part that is inflamed and swollen.
  6. Turn off the machine after the allotted time for treatment.
  7. Disconnect the pad from the water cooler and refill when needed, but no need to undo the bandages and ice pad from the patient if additional treatment time will be occurring soon.
