    • What type of material is on the sole of the cuff? It looks like the cooling does not happen down there and that it is a flat surface. Is this correct?
    • There is no cooling on the sole of the Aircast Ankle Cryo Cuff. The cold water fills the side off the cuff.

    • this boot would be used during chemo for foot neurophy, it is important to know how cold it will keep the feet for at least 3 hours....above or below freezing.... thanks
    • The CryoCuff does not have temperature control so the cuff would be as cold as the ice in the cooler. Because of this I would suggest not using this device. We do have the IceMan Classic that can control the flow of water to the pad therefore control the temp, the coldest being the 32 degrees https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-iceman-cold-therapy-unit
  • Talo at 8/16/2015 5:03 PM
    • Does the compression come simply via gravity, or is there a hand pump involved?

      Thanks in advance.
    • The compression is increased the higher the cooler is raised with the gravity fed system(non motorized)

    • I just had a bunionectomy on my left foot on May 4, 2015 and then two in a half weeks later I had to have surgery again to remove the screw that the doctor put in my big toe joint bone because it was causing a bone infection. Now my foot stays swollen and extremely painful. My doctor says it is going to take possibly a year or more for the bone to fully heal. Can you use hot water for a warm compression in the cooler or does it only work with cold water?
    • This unit only works with cold water and ice. For heat therapy I would suggest the DonJoy Hot /Cold Therapy Wrap: https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-hot-cold-therapy-wrap

      The Cryocuff will provide cold therapy which can help with pain.

      Tha ankle cuff is like a little boot so it covers the entire foot, heel to toes
  • Mark Morazes at 12/23/2013 11:58 AM
    • When using the electric pump it seems to over fill the cuff creating painful pressure is there a way to control or reduce that
    • Thank you for your question. To reduce the pressure in the cuff, make sure the cooler is level with the cuff prior to plugging in the unit. You must also make sure to always apply the cuff empty. Also when filling the cuff, the height in which you hold the cooler will have an effect on the pressure applied during the treatment. To lessen the amount of pressure during treatment old the cooler at a lower height above the cuff (suggested height is 12"-15").
      If you have any further question, you can call the product support lilne at 888.504.3251.

    • The coolers that require a prescription, are the covered by medicare, United Health Care, or Tricare.

      Thank you for contacting product support. Most insurances do not cover cryotherapy but you can call your insurance and ask. If they do cover it you can contact your local DonJoy rep from our website djoglobal.com
  • Sue at 10/26/2013 10:58 AM
    • Please provide bottom length of foot portion of cuff. I need it for my toes also. Thanks
    • The Ankle Cryo/Cuff is designed to be a one-size fits most in adult and pediatric sizes. The adult size has the following dimensions:

      11.5" in length
      4.5" wide (front portion)
      2.5" wide (back portion)
  • melissa at 8/11/2013 9:58 PM
    • Can the cuff be used over a splint or cast?
    • Hello Melissa,

      I don't believe you will feel all cold through a Cast or Splint. The Cuff should be applied to the injured body part with a thin layer of clothing between the cuff and the skin.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • JIm at 6/28/2013 11:02 AM
    • am i able to use this with a aircast waling boot
    • Hello Jim,

      Yes, you can take your boot off, and use the cryo-cuff.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • Marty at 7/17/2012 10:17 AM
    • How to I empty water from the cuff?

    • Keep the blue hose connected, and lower the cooler below the level of the cuff. Gravity will drain it back into the cooler.
  • Michelle at 7/28/2011 8:20 PM
    • Does this cuff provide cold therapy to the entire foot area? I am recovering from a 5th metatarsal injury and want to make sure it provides cold therapy to this area. Thanks.
    • Yes this cuff will provide cold therapy to the foot and ankle.

    Best rehab product purchased

    Reviewed by:
    I have been using the ankle cryo cuff w/cooler for over 13 years and it is still in great shape. It cut my rehab time by at least 1/4 and keeps me walking. I had a pylon fracture of both leg bones at the ankle and use it after follow on surgery or whenever the ankle gets sore and swollen. I heighly recommend purchasing this product.

    Does a good job of cooling.
    Pros: Easy to use. The foot cuff can be detached so you can have more freedom of movement. I had foot surgery.
    Cons: Pricey. Instructions could be better. For example, I had no idea what the aluminum pad was for. Had to watch a YouTube video to fine out that it goes on top of ice. I would prefer a better fit and I would like the cuff to get colder longer. The coolness last about 15 mins. You need to purchase a lot of ice. I was doing 20 mins ice/1 hour off. 40 lbs of ice lasted about 2.5 days.

    The ice and compression work well together.
    Pros: The steady state of cooling provides significant relief from swelling and pain.
    Cons: It requires more ice than expected. My refrigerator ice maker could not keep up with daily use. I used it while recovering from surgery.

    Somewhat helpful for home use

    Reviewed by:
    Easy to use and helpful but not sure if it was worth the $$$. I used it after ankle replacement surgery for help with swelling and post PT comfort. The "Game Ready" was a lot more effective but at $2500 or $125/week rent I don't feel the difference is warranted the cost.
    Pros: Easy to Use Helpful
    Cons: Cost

    Useful product

    Reviewed by:
    Makes the task of placing ice on my ankle to reduce swelling easier. The boot is very comfortable and allows me to ice the swollen area for longer periods. I can also place it on both ankles, even though I purchased it to place on the one that was swollen.

    I use this product 20 minuets out of every hour to keep the swelling down in my ankle, it is so much easier then using a ice pack. I would recommend this product to anyone who has an ankle injury. I have the non motorized type it was cheaper then the motorized and works great.
    Pros: Fast, easy, ice stays frozen for a long time. The compression is great. I also have one for my knees and they are just a wonderful product.
    Cons: Can not think of anything bad about this product.

    The best for swelling

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this for any type of foot or ankle swelling and it is really a great product. I wished so h ad this when I tore all the ligament in my foot. I used it for another reason and the swelling is gone. I have had this for about 8 months.
    Pros: It works great, easy to use
    Cons: A little bit of work to get all the water out of the foot section. Instructions could be clearly written. A little bit bigger writing for someone of my age.

    Outstanding post surgery!

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    This was recommended to me by my foot surgeon for post surgery. I used it consistently the first several days and found it really helped reduce swelling and made me more comfortable. Two weeks post surgery and still using it 4-5 times a day. The cooling reduces pain and feels good! Better than simply ice on it as that isn't comfortable and is hard to keep in place. This boot is easy to use, empty and refill immediately with ice water from the cooler. I've told several friends about it.
    Pros: Easy to use Comfortable to wear Reduces pain by reducing swelling Cost for the value definitely worth it Portable
    Cons: The boot is a little slippery to walk in but certainly doable from room to room if need be. Generally I'm sitting still when I'm using it so not a big deal
