Orthopaedic Surgery

Hilotherapy provides a natural way to reduce pain and swelling following orthopaedic surgery. The treatment is highly beneficial following a wide range of procedures including total knee replacement, ACL, hip replacement, shoulder and foot surgeries (including bunionectomy).

Many traditional cryotherapy solutions use ice to provide cooling for patients. Hilotherm does not. Unlike ice, Hilotherm can be applied continuously for prolonged periods of time without negative side effects and without any intervention to maintain cooling. There is no need to top up ice making this a very user friendly option for those recovering from surgery or injury. Hilotherm helps get you back on your feet faster.

Anatomically fitted cuffs are available to treat various parts of the body including:

  • Knee
  • Shoulder
  • Foot
  • Hip
  • Back
  • Forearm
  • Lower leg
  • Hand

Most patients using Hilotherm to recover following orthopaedic surgery will only need to use the treatment for a relatively short period of time. Our devices are available to rent on a weekly basis. It’s very hard to predict in advance how long you will need to rent a device for, so we offer low-price rental extensions to provide flexibility.

★★★★★ ​ Rita Chawla

Would 100% recommend. I recently underwent major surgery and my husband hired a machine for my recovery. The machine controlled the swelling and pain and worked wonders through my sleepless nights. Ice packs just didn’t cut it for me as I could only get around 20 mins of use at a time with ice packs.
Thank you for assisting in my speedy recovery.

★★★★★ ​ Lara McCarthy

My daughter used for a week after upper and lower jaw surgery. It meant that she could snooze during the day and at night with a ‘cool face’. Service was exceptional. Really useful advice given.


★★★★★ ​ Kareen Taylor

I must say that the Hilotherapy machine is worth every penny. I came out with no bruising and very little swelling after having double jaw surgery. It really helped in keeping my face cool and virtually pain-free. I would recommend this equipment to anyone and, in fact, have already recommended it to friends about to go for ankle and knee surgery. I would also say that for anyone suffering from migraines this is a fantastic piece of machinery that really helps with the pain.


★★★★★ ​ Rosalind King

We found the whole process of ordering the Hilotherapy device very straightforward and quick, and Martha certainly found that the unit helped with the post-operative swelling and discomfort. We would definitely recommend it to other people going through the same operation.
