The healing properties of ice have been widely recognised for hundreds of years in relation to trauma and injury. By controlling the temperature of the treatment, providing the optimum temperature for the body to recover and allowing treatment to be applied for prolonged periods of time, these healing properties can be elevated even further.
Hilotherapy can be used to reduce pain, swelling and bruising following injury and is sometimes used to reduce the swelling sufficiently to allow surgery to take place sooner. It has applications in a wide range of sports including cricket, rugby, boxing, football, athletics and ice hockey – and has been used by sports stars David Haye, Craig Kieswetter, Rafinha, Alex Wakely, Nicola Adams, Jade Johnson and Stuart Broad plus several top level footballers.

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.

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.

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.
