Accel™ Technology

Game Ready’s innovative ACCEL™ Technology (Active Compression and Cold Exchange Loop) sets a new standard in injury and post-op treatment, integrating active pneumatic compression and cold therapies in one revolutionary system. The system progressively increases and releases pressure while also rapidly circulating ice water through separate wrap chambers.

 

Until now, the RICE (Rest–Ice–Compression–Elevation) principles have been used only to passively control symptoms, moderating pain and swelling. But Game Ready® does more. Going beyond static cold and compression applications, ACCEL Technology mimics natural muscle contractions while cooling the tissue, helping the body to proactively aid lymphatic function, encourage cellular oxygen supply, and stimulate tissue repair. That is, it helps accelerate and enhance recovery.

DON’T JUST TREAT SYMPTOMS, ACCELERATE RECOVERY

Immediately after suffering a musculoskeletal injury, the body initiates a series of physiological responses to defend surrounding tissues and begin to repair the damage. While inflammation is a natural and necessary mechanism in this process, controlling it effectively can actually allow the body to enter the later stages of healing faster.

HOW DOES GAME READY’S TECHNOLOGY WORK?

ACCEL Technology takes traditional RICE principles to an all-new level. Dynamic and synergistic, ACCEL brings compression and cold together like never before – giving you the therapeutic power to help heal.

The microprocessor-enabled GRPro 2.1 control unit uses ACCEL Technology to enable the simultaneous and integrated delivery of active compression and cold therapies.
Active pneumatic compression mimics natural “squeeze and release” muscle contractions, helping pump edema away while stimulating the flow of oxygenated blood to the injury site.
In a continuous exchange loop, rapidly circulating ice water actively removes heat and cools the injured tissue to reduce edema, muscle spasms, and pain.
Air pressure conforms the circumferential wraps to the body for better surface contact, enhancing the system’s ability to deliver penetrating cold and to pull heat away from the injury site.
Faster, deeper, longer-lasting intramuscular cooling slows cellular metabolism, helping the body to minimize secondary tissue damage – and less damage means faster recovery.

GR PRO 2.1 TECHNICAL DETAILS

ADJUSTABLE COMPRESSION

Three settings of cyclical pneumatic (air)
compression or the option of no compression:

  • High (5 to 75 mm Hg)
    Approximately 2 to 3 minutes of inflation
    and 1 minute of deflation.
  • Medium (5 to 50 mm Hg)
    Approximately 2 to 3 minutes of inflation
    and 1 minute of deflation.
  • Low (5 to 15 mm Hg)
    Approximately 4 to 5 minutes of inflation
    and 1 minute of deflation.
  • None
ADJUSTABLE SET-POINT COLD

  • Provides consistent temperature across the wrap, improving patient comfort and safety.
  • Cold therapy between 35°F to 50°F (when control unit reservoir full of ice).

 

DIGITAL TIMER
For convenient management of treatment time, without having to continually monitor the system:

  • Timer can be set for a specific treatment time, up to 95 minutes; control unit automatically shuts off once the treatment time has elapsed.
  • Timer also can be set to run continuously for up to 190 minutes.
PRESET PROTOCOLS
Continuously alternating treatment and “rest” cycles promote patient compliance:

  • Program 1: 30 minutes on, 30 minutes sleep. No pressure.
  • Program 2: 30 minutes on, 30 minutes sleep. Low pressure.
  • Program 3: 30 minutes on, 30 minutes sleep. Medium pressure.
  • Program 4: 30 minutes on, 60 minutes sleep. No pressure.
  • Program 5: 30 minutes on, 60 minutes sleep. Low pressure.
  • Program 6: 30 minutes on, 60 minutes sleep. Medium pressure.
SPECIFICATIONS

  • Dimensions: 7.5″W x 16″L x 7.75″H
  • Weight: 7.3 pounds (empty)
  • Easy portability enables convenient treatment on the go or wherever required.
