Process of a session

Equipements :

  • The patient, wearing a swimsuit, stays in the chamber at minus 80°C for 1 to 3 minutes, depending on his tolerance threshold

  • Extremities are protected by gloves, slippers, ear protection and head

  • The respiratory upper tract is protected by a mask

Before the session :

A preliminary medical examination and informed consent by the patient are advisable to verify that there are no contra-indications for this type of cryotherapy

During the session and later :

The patient is under permanent visual and audio surveillance by the practitioner

The cutaneous temperature quickly falls to reach 15°C, instead of the usual 33°C

This is caused by a thermal shock which provokes a superficial vasoconstriction and a slowing down of the nervous conduction

The internal temperature undergoes a very slight variation immediately after the session (0,63°C), it returns to normal within 5 minutes

An emergency stop enables the device to be stopped immediately if necessary

In this case, a battery maintains the elementary functions active for a minimum of 10 minutes (lights, audio and video systems)


  • No shower less than half an hour before the session

  • No sport less than half an hour before the session

  • No wet swimsuit

  • No jewels, piercing, hairclips

  • No ocular lenses

  • No open wounds

  • Possible protection of an isolated zone sensitive to the cold

Patient will feel

During the session : the patient feels the cold and the reactions of his body to this exposure and the extreme temperatures of -80°C which cause a thermal shock, but these very low temperatures are born with no problems as the cold inside the chamber is dry

At the end :  there is an immediate feeling of wellbeing. Any fatigue or pain disappear
The results are surprising for most sportsmen and can seem quite astounding for patients with chronic pain.
The beneficial effects last from 2 to 6 hours after a session

An ongoing and longer lasting effect is observed if the sessions are repeated over several weeks, in particular for pain relief
