CRYO-T ® Duo as cryotherapy device allows easy and safe administration of cooling medium – carbon dioxide (CO2 liquid phase). It does not require liquid nitrogen (LN2) and achieves temperatures of -75 °C. Contrary to other cooling media, carbon dioxide has twofold effect on human organism. Cold carbon dioxide acts on the organism already during the procedure, which ensures effective cool penetration into deeper tissues. Properties of corbon dioxide ensure safe application of the cryotherapy device on patients with cardiological problems.
CRYO-T ® Duo permits non-invasive treatment of vein-nets (spider angioma). Carbon dioxide-based cryotherapy permits safe and precise direct gas application, which is achieved by moving apparatus nozzle set to the lowest possible temperature (-75°C) just above the skin.
The device is intended for use in rehabilitation and physiotherapy rooms. Two replaceable nozzles allow precise cooling of selected parts of the body thus ensuring very economic utilisation of CO2.

Cryostimulation (cryotherapy) is of the most important methods in modern physiotherapy. This is universally rocognised solution which is perfectly safe, effective and brings no side effects. One of its greatest advantages is that it helps to reduce pain and to shorten postoperative rehabilitation, for example, after reconstructive joint surgeries.
Cryostimulation and neurocryostimulation is an application of cryogenic temperature (from -80°C to -140°C) for a short time (120-180 seconds) in order to trigger physiological reaction to the cold. The effects of such treatment include metabolism boost, enzymatic activation, pain reduction, blood pressure increase etc. Therefore, it is extremely helpful in healing various local disorders or injuries such as:
- Diseases of the locomotors system of various etiology.
- Diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system.
- Diseases of the mental origin neurosis and depression syndrome.
- Diseases of the autoimmunological origin.
- Sports medicine.
- Widely understood spa and wellness.
One cycle of cryotherapy usually consist of 10 – 30 procedures performed once or twice a day. However, in twice a day option, there should be 4 – 6 hour break between treatments. Local criostimulation is a part of cryorehabilitation. Immediately after the procedure, patients undergo kinesiotherapy which is individual exercises lasting 30 – 60 minutes.
