Ossur's Cold Rush Therapy

Tired of traditional ice packs not lasting long enough, or bag of frozen peas spill all over the floor? The Ossur Cold Rush Therapy Units are an incredible upgrade from anything of its kind. With a motor that pumps water at an adjustable rate (water temp) you are comfortable with, for up to 6 hours without having to use gravity like the old drink coolers. Get comfy on the couch or bed, and stay there to rest up!

Why use a cold rush compared to ice? The Cold rush can stay cold for up to 6 hours, giving you time to heal and relax without having to get up and down to the freezer to rotate out ice packs. The Cold Rush doesn’t leak, and wraps anatomically around the most commonly injured joints with the ease of elastic bandages that are included with the purchased pads. Many orthopaedic surgeons are recommending the use of Cold Rush units post surgical and request to have it the day before, or day of surgery ready to use!

The use of  the cold rush is not just for surgical patients, but anyone who has an acute sprain/strain or chronic inflammation from an old injury.

Cold Rush® Cold Therapy System

Cold Rush’s holistic design features a durable motor, a stronger flow rate than the top selling units and an industry-leading ice-to- water ratio that ensures longer cooling times. Yet, it is whisper quiet and compact, weighing just 4.6lbs

Go with the flow. By incorporating the same durable motor used in much larger mobile air conditioners and refrigerators, Cold Rush provides consistent cooling and excellent compression, even to high elevations.

Quiet as a whisper. Cold Rush uses a brushless motor to produce a whisper-quiet (30 decibel) unit that allows patients to get the rest they need to properly rehabilitate from their injuries.

Stay cooler, longer! The highest ice-to-water ratio in the industry and a design that produces less heat transfer from the motor to the water combine to ensure cold therapy pain relief for up to 6 continuous hours.

No igloos! Far more than just a modified beverage cooler, Cold Rush was designed holistically, with unique features like a locking lid to help prevent spills and insulated walls for improved cooling.

The Ossur cold rush can be used for many joints and injuries post surgical and chronic inflammation. A variety of compatible pads are available including:

  • Knee
  • Hip
  • Shoulder
  • Lumbar
  • Foot/ankle
  • Universal
  • Rectangle

 

OKAPED offers a rental program of the Cold Rush unit for a two week minimum (patients must purchase the pad for sanitation reasons) or the option to buy a new unit. If you have rented the unit for 2 weeks and decide you want to purchase your own unit then we will reduce the price of a new unit by the $50 rental fee!
