The ECB INSTANTCRYO ™ is an innovative handheld device that provides effective and localized cryotherapy treatments for horses. The combination of extreme cold temperatures and high-pressure vapor allows for an instant reduction in pain and inflammation and accelerated recovery from common horse conditions/injuries. Regular use of the ECB INSTANTCRYO ™ treatments is also beneficial for the general wellbeing and performance of the horse, as well as for preventative care.
How ECB INSTANTCRYO™ treatments work
INSTANTCRYO™ releases C02 gas at -108°F (-78°C) at a high pressure of 50 bar (756 psi), reducing the skin surface temperature of the injured area to 39°F (4°C) within 30 seconds. This induces the ‘cryotherapeutic effect’ – a combination of several simultaneous physiological adaptions. Pain and inflammation are decreased, toxins and other waste products are removed and blood containing oxygen, healing proteins, and other essential nutrients rapidly flows to the affected area. Overall, the horse’s natural recovery process is enhanced. Research has shown that cryotherapy treatments can reduce the risk of relapse and reoccurring injury. Treatments are highly beneficial for performance horses, particularly those in racing or showjumping, and for horses in rehabilitation.
The INSTANTCRYO™ team provides in-person training to each client. The user is taught how to safely and effectively use the INSTANTCRYO™ device and is equipped with specific treatment protocols for various injuries and conditions.
