    Cryotherapy – Cold Therapy

    Chilling Out with Cryotherapy

    Cryotherapy is a treatment using freezing or near-freezing temperatures for treating health conditions like pain, cancerous and benign tumors, tissue damages or lesions, and sports injuries. Ice cold liquid, in many instances water, is stimulating to the body and often can help tissues and ligaments to heal by increasing blood flow.

    Being minimally invasive and drug-free, medical practitioners are looking at cryotherapy for additional treatment of other medical conditions and disease. In fact, medical market research analysts expect the growth in the cryotherapy market to be driven by an increase in sports injuries, cardiac disease, cancer, and advancements in cryotherapy technology.

    As Cold as Ice

    Cryotherapy and cold therapy devices come in many forms.

    • Cryotherapy machines with imaging guidance and liquid nitrogen or argon gas create intense cold to freeze and destroy diseased tissue
    • Cryosurgery equipment with liquid nitrogen or argon gas, where the cooling agent is applied locally to destroy abnormal cells, including tumors or cancerous cells
    • Cold therapy devices used for patient pain management after a traumatic injury or following surgery
    • Cryotherapy devices circulate cold water around wound areas after surgery
    • Cryotherapy equipment used to treat a variety of skin conditions

    Linking Technology and Healing with CPC Fluid Handling Connectors

    When the usability and effectiveness of cryotherapy and cold therapy equipment can make the difference between a few days or a few weeks of healing, every fluid handling connection needs to be free of air or liquid leaks. CPC’s liquid cooling experts have been delivering leak-free, worry-free quick disconnect couplings for liquid cooling for over 20 years. CPC design engineers are familiar with the issues that cryotherapy equipment manufacturers frequently face ─ including a desire for ease of operation, small equipment footprint, and coolant compatibility, to name a few. In fact, this medical fluid handling equipment coupling experience and thermal management expertise helped to trigger the development of CPC’s purpose-built Everis® Series of quick disconnext (QD) couplings or "quick connectors" which can be used in the liquid cooling systems of cryotherapy and cold therapy equipment.

    Everis Quick Disconnect Couplings Designed for Liquid Cooled Cryotherapy Systems

    How are CPC's Purpose Built Fluid Connectors Used in Liquid Cooling?

    • Provide one-hand operation to facilitate connection, disconnection of fluid lines used in liquid cooling cryotherapy systems
    • Support 100% uptime during installation, reconfiguration and maintenance enables hot swapping
    • Allow secure, efficient, reliable and leak-free management of coolant fluids within the cryotherapy liquid cooling system
    • Deliver an audible "click" that confirm full connection for the cryotherapy technician or practitioner

    Trusted Reliability

    CPC Everis liquid cooling couplings are purpose-built for thermal management of electronic systems applications to help maintain the temperatures required for cryotherapy systems for best performance. Everis fluid handling quick disconnect couplings withstand pressures ─ side load, flexing, tensile forces ─ during installation and function continually with leak-free reliability.

    Dependable Durability

    Built to manage the temperature requirements of cryotherapy machines, Everis non-spill quick connectors deliver optimized flow rates with excellent flow to size ratio for superior performance. CPC Everis couplings feature a valve design that is precision engineered to be compatible with a wide variety of system coolants. With robust redundant seals, CPC Everis liquid cooling quick disconnects (QDs) easily tolerate installation and use pressures without compromising the valve or seal, eliminating exposure of expensive systems and crucial components to fluids.

    Overall Robustness

    Meeting the needs of diverse types of cryotherapy equipment, CPC Everis liquid cooling connectors come in an expanding variety of sizes, termination options and materials including plated brass, aluminum, stainless steel, PPSU and other high-performance polymers. Configurations include blind mate, latched, straight and elbow connectors with seal options including EPDM, FKM and Vitonek. All  Everis liquid cooling connector solutions are rigorously tested ─ including materials testing, product testing and torture testing to failure ─ to meet product specifications. As a matter of fact, CPC offers reliable, reproducible performance and provides validation reports that support the performance attributes.

    Straightforward Serviceability

    When your cryotherapy or cold therapy systems need maintenance, CPC's latched Everis quick disconnects are designed for ease in system serviceability, including drip-free non-spill disconnections for safer and quicker repair. The simple-to-use thumb latch provides both ease and speed of installation and system maintenance. The Everis Series blind mate and swivel joint quick disconnect couplings are designed for systems where there isn’t much space in the cavity of the medical equipment for the liquid cooling.

    Connection Assurance

    With a sleek body and ergonomically designed thumb latch, Everis liquid cooling connectors deliver single-handed operation along with the audible CPC click to assure your medical technicians and specialists know when the fluid lines are connected. Everis Series’ low force to connect makes it simple to ensure a complete connection.
