The Knee Cryo/Cuff combines the therapeutic benefits of controlled compression to minimize hemarthrosis and swelling, and cold to minimize pain. The cuff is anatomically designed to completely fit the knee providing maximum cryotherapy. The Knee Cryo/Cuff is available in three sizes for adults and is also available in a pediatric size designed for children 1 - 7 years of age. A sterile Knee Cryo/Cuff is available in adult medium and large sizes. NON-MOTORIZED.

All Cryo/Cuffs can be ordered as a single cuff, or with a cooler (including a tube assembly and insulation disk). The Cooler is available separately and can be used with any model in the Cryo/Cuff line.

A Knee Cryo/Cuff SC (self-contained) is available that eliminates the need for a cooler — the cuff is filled directly with water and ice.

Aircast Knee Cryo/Cuff w/Cooler reviews

I used the shoulder version of the Cryocuff in September of 2009 after 3 hours of surgery for two torn rotator cuff tendons and a torn biceps tendon. It is the same unit as the knee version with the small cooler and the plug in pump that forces the ice water through the cuff. It lasts a lot longer than any ice pack, stays cold longer and is worth every penny even if you only need it for 3-4 days post-op. For normal bumps and bruises it is also great - I just used my shoulder cuff for an MCL knee injury. Two caveats - you need a LOT of ice to fire this unit up for post-op use. I had a 50 pound bag and went through it in a day and half but there is no better solution for icing post op pain. The second caveat is that on the unit I had, there was no on/off switch on the wall plug or anywhere on the pump. A lame oversight for such an expensive unit. The knee version here is cheap compared to the $250 the orthopedist charged me for the shoulder version. Tommy B . - Tommy B.
After using reusable ice packs for my knee I found this. So much cleaner no condensation and easy to use. When using ice packs I would take 3 to 4 trips back and forth to the freezer. With the Aircast Cryo Cuff I can sit at the couch or in bed and just lift the cooler just above my knee and it fills in about a minute. Disconnect the hose and I have about 15 to 20 minutes of cooling. When the water is warm hook back up the hose open the valve on the cooler and let drain wait 5 minutes and repeat. One tip I can give is place a small wash rag under the quick disconnect for the hose. That will save you from the 4 drops or so of water that runs out of the cuff side of the unit. - Stan
Fantastic product! Fill it, plug it in and it cycles the cold water in and out of the cooler keeping cold water surrounding the afeccted area (knee in my case) I had medial and lateral meniscus surgery yesterday morning. I came home and immediately started with the Cryo/Cup cold therapy and my knee feels amazing today, and no it is not the medication that is making it feel good. The compression is also useful in helping to prevent blood clots. Improvements i would suggest is a temperature guage to let you know when the ice is all gone and the water temp is getting warm. And as mentioned above, an on off switch to turn off the pump instead of having to unplug. Another thing, add a flip up spot vent to release the pressure so you don't have to lossen the lid. - TMan23
The therapy and compression aspects are superior, but the workmanship of the cuff was my problem. The Velcro strap material separated from the cushion so made it difficult to keep cuff in place. - Dala

I finally replaced my original one that I received over 10 years ago. It lasted and when it finally started to fall apart - I had to get another one! When you have bad knees (multiple torn ACL surgeries and a lifetime of general abuse), ice is your friend. This is the perfect solution pre and post workout. Had a friend at work try it out and she is now wanting to get one too! (she is the one who coined the phrase "cold hug") - Bad Knees Beth
Have been looking forward to receiving my own Aircast Knee Cryo/Cufff since Physio. Arrived only 2 days after ordering, and fantastic communication with Customer Service Team. Knee is in heaven....great investment with surgery just around the corner. And foolproof to use!! Absolutely fantastic product!! THANK YOU!! - Cari G
GForgot I had it in the closet after having bilater total knee replacements 3 weeks later I remember it. Great pain releif plus I can sleep in it. Told my surgeon about it, and he plan to try it on several new knee replacements. GREAT PRODUCT - BIG BOB
Received my knee cryo cuff delivered to my door in less than 24 hours after I ordered it. This was the free standard 4 to 7 day shipping! Very fast service & customer service was very helpful when I called with a question. Easy to order online. Very satisfied! The new knee cuff fit the cooler I had used for a shoulder surgery 12 years ago. The knee cuff does not ice the back of your knee - only the top & sides of the knee. I wish the design allowed for the water to go all the way around your knee. - Sue
One day out of hospital and without the Cryo-cuff and am wondering how i will get through the day let alone the weeks to come. This is an excellent product and provided the best icing and pain management of all. After every session doing my required exercises post surgery I used this constantly. I even slept in it. Now I am home I realise i am missing it beyond my expectations. - Leslie
Just had a right knee medial menisectomy today. Loving my air cast cuff/cooler! Great product! - Marlene Kaye
I had a knee reconstruction on Thursday and used a aircast cyro brace ice therapy while an inpatient. It was amazing, and the best ice therapy, it offered great pain relief. I knew after hospital I needed one to optimise my post op recovery. So I went looking and came across your company. I am in absolute amazement of the prompt service and delivery of my cryo knee brace. Not only where you the cheapest, I only ordered my brace yesterday at 11am and I have my brace on now the very next day at 3pm! Absolutely outstanding. I am in the health industry and I would highly recommend your company. Great service and very very quick delivery! - Lisa mare

Had ACL reconstruction surgery four weeks ago. I have been living with my cryocuff faithfully. However after the second week the ease of connecting the tube to the cuff is becoming harder and harder. I have to finagle it, wiggle it and sometimesmjam it in to get it to connect properly. It's frustrating being the pack gets warm in about 15 minutes. After three refills my hands Re hurting from reconnecting. Will contact the company about this. - Mischele, NJ
15 years ago I had two knee surgeries (acl reconstruction/meniscus repair) and used the cryo cuff religiously with amazing results.. Two weeks ago I had another acl reconstruction and medial/lateral meniscus repair. I went two weeks with extreme swelling and couldn't take it anymore; I HAD TO get a cryo cuff! I went to the donjoy site and was connected to where I purchased this product. I wanted to get the product as soon as possible bc it works wonders, however I didn't have the extra money for faster shipping so I picked the free 4-7 day shipping and crossed my fingers for a speedy delivery. My cryo cuff arrived in two days and I couldn't be happier! I've got my let propped up with my cryo cuff on for the first time and I can already tell that it's doing wonders compared to icing alone. Thank you for offering a hard to find product with such speedy delivery!! - Kelly
I used this every day over night and thought the day for the first two weeks after knee surgery. I feel it really helped to speed up my recovery. Easy to use and comfortable. A must after surgery! - Patty

I had surgery to replace a torn ACL years ago, and the surgeon recommended the cryo-cuff. What a life and sanity saving measure that was! When I had hand/wrist surgeries due to a snow-machining accident, I asked my doctor to prescribe the cuff for the arm/hand/wrist. She'd never heard of it, but after looking it up, I got one of those too (I'd have paid for it myself if my insurance wouldn't have). I'm getting ready to order another one for my knee, and I also recommended this to an elderly friend of mine who has had knee injuries. - Karen Alaska

Questions on Aircast Knee Cryo/Cuff w/Cooler

Sort by Descending
  • From Oliver at 6/9/2010 3:58 PM
    • I just had a total knee replacement done on May 18th. I heard about your Aircast Cryo Cuff and it appears there is more than 1 model to choose from for the knee. I have a lot of swelling and stiffness in my right leg. Which model do you recommend I get?
    • Either model of the Aircast Cryo/Cuff will work for your condition. One is motorized and uses a pump to pump cold water into the cuff to reduce swelling in your knee. That model is called the Aircast Cryo/Cuff IC - this model requires a prescription. The other version listed on this page is the original Aircast Cryo/Cuff that uses gravity rather than the pump. It does not require a prescription. They both do the same thing, but the motorized version is more convenient.
  • From clau at 7/24/2010 9:33 AM
    • I have the Aircast Cryo/Cuff Cooler but missplace the cuff. Can i buy it separately? If so how much is it?
    • Yes, all the cuffs are $69.99ea besides the shoulder. The shoulder cuff is $84.99
      Follow the link below for more information:
  • From Samantha at 10/6/2010 7:35 PM
    • Does the cuff provide cold water to the front of the knee or also to the back of the knee I can't tell from the picture.
    • The Aircast Cryo/Cuff for the knee provides total contact cold therapy. The entire cuff fills with cold water to provide maximum cold therapy to the area.
  • From Samantha at 10/6/2010 8:01 PM
    • Does this include the cooler with the 30 second on/off cycle? Or would there be a different type of cooler that the knee aircast goes with?
    • No this is the standard gravity unit. The Aircast Cryo/Cuff IC Motorized and Cuffs provides the integrated compression to the cuff. See the link below to direct you to the page.
  • From Cheryl Caris at 11/22/2010 12:57 PM
    • How do you drain the water from the cuff?
    • Hello Cheryl,

      Here are the steps:

      1. Empty the cooler
      2. Put the empty cooler on the ground with the lid off, and squeeze the cuff so that all the water goes from the cuff and into the cooler
      3. Empty the cooler again.
      4. Repeat if needed.
  • From Tom at 2/10/2011 1:30 PM
    • I have the Cryo/Cuff w/Cooler for my wrist and I was wondering what's the use of the plug that comes with it?
    • It sounds like you have a Aircast Cryo/Cuff IC Motorized and Cuff Automatic Integrated Compression and Cryo Therapy System. If you have a plug, the water can be pumped rather than relying on the gravity pump aspect of the non IC systems.
  • From Gavan at 3/7/2011 7:06 PM
    • I have a Cryo/Cuff cooler manual version with knee cuff. The "O" ring on the tube that connects to the cuff is perished and dried and does not seal anymore. What is the size of the "O" ring to obtain a replacement, do you have replacements?
    • Gavan,
      Due to FDA regulations we are unable to give you the information on the O ring for the Cryo Cuff however; you can replace the cooler or the tube through customer care at 800-553-6019.
  • From Lise Lamadeleine at 5/16/2011 5:24 PM
    • How do you measure for the size.

    • Measure the circumference of the thigh, six inches above the top of the knee cap. Use that number and match it up with the sizing chart.
  • From ra at 6/24/2011 1:03 PM
    • The instructions show me how to use the cuff. How do I drain the cuff after use?
    • Hey Ra,
      Take the whole thing to think sink. Then with the cooler empty, unscrew the hose from the cooler. Then make sure the Cuff is connected to the hose. Squeeze the cuff and you will force the water out of the cuff, through the hose, and into the sink.

  • From David at 7/11/2011 3:16 PM
    • The cuff will not drain - what can prevent the cuff from draining? Tried squeezing the cuff from above but something is preventing the water from escaping. Any ideas?
    • Do you have the blue hose connected to the pad? The hose must be connected for the water to drain back into the cooler.
  • From Carolyn fudge at 4/13/2013 11:21 PM
    • can you provide the insurance code to use?
    • Hello, Carolyn -

      The code is E0218.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • From Janice Attree-Smith at 5/1/2013 10:05 AM
    • My knee due to inflammation is 22 inches. What would be the best fit - the medium or the large?
    • The medium will fit and the cuff wont be loose as your swelling starts to reduce.
  • From Chris Janowicz at 7/11/2013 10:02 AM
    • I'm getting water leakage between the hose and the cuff. Is it time to replace the hose and/or the cuff? I've got one more knee surgery scheduled for next fall. Really like the Aircast knee cuff cooler system!
    • Hello Chris,

      Give us a call so that we can determine where the leak is. We have replacement parts available online, and via the phone. Your Aircast has a 6 month warranty.


      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • From Thomas at 8/11/2013 8:57 AM
    • I have misplaced the electrical cord that goes from the AC outlet to the top of the cooler. Is this a generic piece? where can I purchase a replacement?
    • Hello,

      We have the power supply available on

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • From Annmarie at 8/26/2013 7:22 PM
    • Is the cyro cuff good to wear while recovering from a MCL sprain? If so, can it be worn on elliptical machine?
    • It is great to reduce pain and swelling, it would be recommended for post exercise, not during.
  • From Nadia Lynch at 12/12/2013 5:29 AM
    • How do you fill the cuff with water?
    • Nadia
      Thank you for contacting DJO. Lift the cooler 15 inches above the cuff to fill it with water. If you have an air vent on the lid lift that while lifting the cooler. After the cuff is filled set the cooler even or slightly higher than the level of the cuff so that the water does not drain out of it. When the water in the cuff is warm, set the cooler on the ground to allow it to drain back into the cooler
  • From Mary at 3/12/2014 8:11 PM
    • I have a patella that moves around too much. I also have mild arthritis. The orthopedist removed some fluid and injected cortisone, and I have been going to rehab. Afterwards, the therapist uses a compression + cold machine, then tapes my knee to stabilize it. However, the tape rolls up and comes off within a day or two. I still have some pain. What product(s) would you recommend? I play golf and bowl on a regular basis and want to be comfortable.
    • Mary
      Take a look at the Tru-Pull Light.
      This brace is a light weight brace that has a lateral buttress that will pull your kneecap into the correct position and keep it tracking in it's normal pattern. This would be a better choice than the taping because you can alway adjust the tension of the pull with the straps of the brace.
  • From Jan at 3/27/2014 5:50 PM
    • What you recommend for a Baker cyst that leaked and caused a great deal of inflammation and pain
    • Thank you for your question. A neoprene sleeve would provide you with support and compression that may have with the inflammation and pain associated with a Baker’s Cyst. A brace such as the DonJoy Performer Knee Support or the DonJoy Deluxe Open Knee Support would be appropriate.
  • From Don at 5/28/2014 11:04 AM
    • I just had a total knee replacement and I have the aircast motorized chiller. I am planning on doing a liitle travel in the car and was wondering where I can find the power supply that would work on the cigerette lighter in my car.
    • We do not have a power supply for the car. I can tell you that the current power supply uses Input: 120vlts@60hrz 18watts
      Output: 8.5v DC, and 900 mA
      Note: Output is unregulated DC. Output voltage at nominal line voltage should be 7VDC at 1.6Amps.
  • From Cynthi at 7/10/2014 1:31 PM
    • With the Gravity Aircast Cryo Cuff for my knee, after filling with the water, will I be able to disconnect the hose and work, then change the water every hour or so after?
    • Yes you can do that
  • From Shanti Jain at 7/12/2014 5:45 PM
    • I just had knee surgery, bought your Aircast Cryo Cuff, question, to keep it on all night for constant coldness, should the cooler be at the knee level, below or above knee level?
    • Shanti
      The cooler should be at the level of the knee or slightly higher
  • From Misty at 10/13/2014 10:10 PM
    • Once the cuff is filled with water, how long does it remain chilled? Or if it were filled with hot water, how long does the cuff remain warmed?
    • Misty
      The cuff will stay cold for about 20-30 minutes
