    • My son had shoulder surgery yesterday. I have an Aircast cold therapy machine and the tubing that attaches to the machine is a 1 tube fitting. The cuff we have for the shoulder has 2 tubes. Is there an attachment to connect the lines? And can it be purchased in the Sacramento area today? Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

      It has not been tested for hot water so we do not know if it will damage any of the parts.

    • Tammie
      The Cryocuff would most likley be a more conveniant way to ice the shoulder than ice packs becaus the cuff fits over the shoulder and is fill so that the entire surface is cooled. You will also not get any dripping that you get when the ice bag melts.
  • richard feldman at 8/2/2014 3:45 PM
    • My friend has Rhuematoid Arthritis. The condition is not the same as a sports trauma, or a surgery problem. Does the cooler have an adjustment for temperture so she is not too cold? How long can a person take a cold treatment for? For RA how long does the treatment last before the cuff has to be applied again? Thank you,
      Rick Feldman
    • The CryoCuff does not have regulated temperature. The temp is determined by how much ice is inserted into the cooler. Treatment times are determined by a physicina but the cuff should stay cold for 30-45 minutes before is will need to be emptied and re-filled with cold water. She should ask her physician how oftern she should used the cold therapy
  • Kathy at 7/24/2014 6:23 PM
    • I'm having full thickness rotator cuff repair and bone spurs removed soon. Trying to decide which unit will work best. Will the non motorized unit do the trick? What's the difference?
    • Kathy
      The two units use grivity to fill and empy the cold water into the should cuff, by lifting the cooler 12-15 inches above to fill and placing the cooler on the floor to empy. The motorized unit pushes air into cooler which creates internittant compression in your shoulder cuff. so the motorized unit gives you cold therapy and compression where the gravity fed only gives you cold therapy. There is another difference, the motorized unit does stay cold longer before you have to empty the cuff.

    • can a motor be added to a non-motorized unit?
    • Thank you for your question. The lid that contains the motor can be purchased in the Replacement Parts section of BetterBraces.com. You would select AirCast Parts and find the lid labeled "AirCast Cryo Cuff IC Lid" https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-parts-accessories.

    • Should a shoulder cuff be used after shoulder replacement surgery. I already have the knee cuff & cooler. Does Medicare cover the cost of a new cuff?
    • Dot
      For a shoulder surgery you would need to get the shoulder cuff. I do not know if MC will cover that.
  • Paul at 4/2/2014 5:42 PM

    • Hello, Richard -

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • Rich at 6/16/2012 9:49 AM
    • Can the unit be use on either the right or left shoulder?
    • Yes the cuff can be worn on either shoulder.
  • Naomi at 4/24/2012 5:35 PM
    • How do you drain the cuff to put fresh cold water in?
    • To drain the cuff keep the cuff attached to the cooler and lower the cooler below the cuff and loosen or remove the lid of the cooler. Should you have any other questions please call 800-553-6019.
  • Erin Sample at 11/18/2011 2:26 PM
    • Once the cryotherapy session is over and the motor is turned off do I need to de-fill the cuff during periods of un use?
    • Erin,

      Yes, as much of the water as possible should be removed from the cuff.

      If you have additional questions, please call 1-800-553-6019
  • Ashley, CST at 11/9/2011 5:13 AM
    • I was just wondering if the coolers were reusable. I noticed the website says the coolers work with all cryo/cuff models so can you use the same cooler for different cuffs on different patients?
    • Yes these coolers are good to use for years as long as you clean out and store them probably when they are not in use.
  • Joanne Healey at 3/15/2011 8:08 PM
    • Will I be able to 1) apply the cuff myself; 2) infate/activate the cuff myself?

      I have had cryo treatments in a Physio Therapy setting and have found it very helpful. Unless I can use and operate the cryo cuff system on my own, there would be no point in my purchasing.
      Response appreciated.
      Thank you
    • With the cryo cuff it is very easy to put on the cuff as well and use the system. I would suggest looking into getting the motorized unit, after your lift the cooler up and do a pre-fill, you will plug in the motor and it will continuously circulate the water for you until you turn the motor off.
  • Gayle Faiers at 9/27/2010 2:41 PM
    • Does it come in left and right shoulder?
    • This is a universal cuff and can be worn on either the right or left shoulder.

    A best option for cold therapy shoulder injury

    Reviewed by:
    I recently purchased this item. This has been the best option to maintain cold therapy all over and around the shoulder area. Though it is fairly expensive (as I had to buy an extended size) this option worked very well for me as I have had the thermos/pump portion from a prior surgery. As I have had continuing problems with my shoulder, I plan on getting a lot of use from this item. It is well made, allows for disconnection while cold adding to the mobility. Great for single people as it can be applied without assistance. Trying to secure cold pads or frozen peas is very frustrating.

    Fantastic Product

    Reviewed by:
    Today is my second day home from rotor cuff surgery. Hospital provided this unit upon discharge. I live alone and this unit provided me with the ability to ice my shoulder one handed. Ice lasts almost 24 hrs. Service unit one time and you can ice shoulder every hour. I placed unit on the floor to drain. And then put the unit in the sink, and got down on one knee to fill. The unit is gravity driven. No plugs. No batteries. No fuss. Well worth it!

    Aircast Shoulder Cyro/Cuff w/Cooler

    Reviewed by:
    My husband just had shoulder surgery and I purchased this product from his Orthopedic Surgeon. I, too, agree it is rather expensive, but it is worth every penny it costs. Having to ice his shoulder 3 to 4 times a day, I put ice in one time and it stays cold for the entire period of time. I highly recommend this product to anyone who requires frequent cold therapy. I love how you can disconnect it to leave the room without having to carry the entire product around with you. An excellent product and so easy to use and I highly recommend it. I can assure you it has made my life so much easier.

    I have beer wearing it for 3 weeks since rotator cuff surgery and it has really helped my recovery. Shoulder pain has been minimal and the cuff is easy to use by placing on a shelf over shoulder to fill.
    Pros: Easy to use, reduces swelling.
    Cons: I can't think of any cons except I wish it was covered by insurance or Medicare

    Can't live without it.

    Reviewed by:
    I recently had a shattered right shoulder/w complete replacement. Within three months of the right replacement my left shoulder started acting up more than normal. The left shoulder had been dislocated several times, thus finally being diagnosed with rotor cuff tears. I finally found this ice system that completely changed my recovery. I was taking three different RX's daily for pain. With this icing system I have reduced that number down to two. I never leave home without this cuff and cooler. Mine is electric and I think it is worth every penny.

    Best product for shoulder care

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    The cryo cuff is the best shoulder care product I've found. I was given one after one of my shoulder surgeries 6 years ago. I still use it regularly when my shoulders get inflamed. If you have chronic shoulder pain it's the most reliable item there is. And after the 6 years it still works as well as the first time.
    Pros: No worries about falling asleep and getting frost bite. Well made and reliable Easy to set up and put on with one arm.
    Cons: I have to clear my night stand to set it on.

    Very disappointed

    Reviewed by:
    There is not enough volume for water in the cuff to make worthwhile the amount of effort required to replenish the cold water supply. My shoulder is injured. The last thing that I need to do is continuously raise, lower, lift, squeeze disassemble, fight with Velcro etc... not only to the cuff but also the added cumbersome cooler. I would never suggest this product to anyone. Also, the advertisement, photographs and information/description of the product was very misleading and vague. Just stick to ice packs.
    Pros: Cool looking
    Cons: The product does not work even if one goes through the effort to try to use it. There is just not enough cold water in the cuff at one time to counter the warming from my own body.

    It was a tremendous comfort for my painful shoulder after surgery. I used it all the time. It was easy and the water in the thermos stayed cold for a long time. I highly recommend it to all that go through surgery or have aches and pain.
    Pros: Easy to use, lightweight. Easy to refill with new cold water. Has lots of strong velcro straps to hold it in place.
    Cons: I did not find any cons.
