What is Whole Body Cryotherapy?
Impact Whole Body Cryotherapy Units give competitive athletes an edge by enhancing preparation so they can train harder and maximize performance. Impact Cryotherapy, the leading equipment engineered, designed and manufactured in the U.S., developed a new octagon exterior design with advanced user features, including new interior materials and an innovative cooling technology that translates into state-of-the-art, efficient performance across the board.
The user stands on an adjustable platform inside the octagonal-shaped chamber during treatment which ensures their head remains outside the chamber. A technician fills the Impact Cryotherapy chamber with nitrogen vapor, Which drops the temperature of the chamber to a range of (minus) -100C to -150C and temporarily lowers the temperature of the skin’s top layer. The treatment lasts a maximum of three minutes. During the process, the skin sends signals to the brain, which stimulates physical reactions and activates naturally occurring healing resources. Once out of the chamber, the body immediately reheats.
