Game Ready® has just introduced the Med4 Elite™, a breakthrough multi-modality recovery device. Its innovative design integrates Iceless Cold, Heat, Rapid Contrast, and Active Compression therapies like never before – delivering comprehensive, flexible, convenient, and proven treatment options for different users, injuries, surgeries, and diverse stages of rehabilitation.
With the Med4 Elite, healthcare professionals and athletic trainers now have a powerful tool for accelerating healing and getting people back to being their best.
The Med4 Elite System Advances Your Treatment Capability
With this system, clinicians can:
- Improve outcomes effectively and safely with the most advanced, integrated multi-modality recovery technology available.
- Enhance recovery with an efficient and targeted combination of Iceless Cold, Controllable Heat, Rapid Contrast, and Active Compression therapies.
- Use flexible therapeutic combinations to reduce pain without narcotics, accelerate the body’s natural healing mechanisms, and increase range of motion and muscle strength.
- Streamline workflow by simultaneously treating multiple patients and athletes with diverse injuries.
- Easily alternate between modalities and adjust time, temperature, and pressure levels with an intuitive, touchscreen interface.
The Med4 Elite System is compatible with the majority of Game Ready wraps, allowing the provider to treat major body parts effectively and comfortably.
Med4 Elite Multi-Modality Therapy Unit
With the Med4 Elite therapy unit, various treatment modalities can be used individually or in combination to reduce pain, control edema or swelling, encourage arterial blood flow, improve range of motion, and accelerate the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
The system integrates cryotherapy, thermotherapy, rapid contrast therapy (RCT), and intermittent pneumatic compression therapy (IPC) in one device. A touchscreen makes control easy. And four lockable wheels facilitate optimal positioning.
Unprecedented Treatment Capability
For patients or athletes and medical professionals alike, the revolutionary Med4 Elite multi-modality contrast therapy unit offers a wide new range of proven, flexible, convenient, and compact treatment options.
Cold[DOWN TO 38°F/3°C]
Creates its own deep-penetrating, longer-lasting cold to promote vasoconstriction and reduce blood flow, reduce inflammation and edema (swelling), decrease muscle spasms, decrease metabolic demand, and safely relieve pain without narcotics following acute injury or surgery. Used immediately following acute injury or surgery and as needed thereafter.
Controllable Heat[UP TO 113°F/45°C]
Generates its own controllable heat to promote vasodilation and increase circulation to the injured area, supporting the lymphatic system and stimulating natural healing while reducing pain and stiffness. Heat therapy is used after the initial inflammatory response caused by an injury or surgery begins to diminish.
Rapid Contrast[Changes over in less than a minute]
Rapid contrast therapy (RCT) alternately opens and constricts the vascular system, increasing blood flow to an injured area without causing the accumulation of additional edema (swelling). RCT also helps decrease nerve sensitivity to reduce pain. The Med4 Elite is capable of an unprecedented <1 minute changeover rate – for efficient, compact, and clean RCT delivery independent of gravity and without messy tubs.
ACTIVE COMPRESSION[4 LEVELS, 5-75 MM HG]
Game Ready’s patented technology delivers adjustable, intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC). IPC mimics natural muscle contractions to “pump” edema (swelling) away from the injury area, encourages oxygenated blood flow, and helps conform the wraps to the body for better surface contact and more effective cold/heat/contrast therapy – all to help accelerate the healing process. IPC has been shown to be most effective when combined with cryotherapy.
Intuitive Touchscreen User Controls
The Med4 Elite therapy unit features dual microprocessors, enabling comprehensive and flexible treatment options for two simultaneous patients. And thanks to an intuitive touchscreen interface, Med4 Elite users can easily alternate between and combine among four therapeutic modalities – as well as control, adjust, and monitor treatment times, temperature ranges, and compression settings with fingertip convenience.
Game Ready Wraps For Better Fit, Coverage and Results
The Med4 Elite System is compatible with a majority of Game Ready’s existing line of dual-action, no-mess ATX® Wraps (Active Temperature Exchange). Featuring patented NASA technology, Game Ready’s low-profile wraps provide circumferential coverage, ensure greater surface contact to optimize cold, heat, and rapid contrast therapy of major body parts, and are anatomically engineered for better fit and comfort. All of which improves outcomes and increases satisfaction with the recovery process.
