- WHY VIBRACOOL® KNEE/ANKLE PAIN

- Only 10-20 minutes of application is enough.
The gate control mechanism is the basis for VibraCoolR . “Gate control” is the term used to describe pain relief by confusing your body’s own nerves and distracting away from the pain. Nerve sensations of temperature (c fibers) or vibration (a beta fibers) combine in the spine to send one message to the brain. Hyper stimulating cold and vibration “shuts the gate” on the small, fast a delta sharp pain fibers, so the brain only perceives cold sensation and movement but no pain.
It is similar to placing a burnt portion of skin under running cold water which stops the burning sensation by stimulating cold receptors, dulling the pain. Ice also induces Descending Noxious Inhibitory Control, or DNIC, reducing pain by taking up bandwidth in the pain-processing area of the brain and sending inhibitory signals down to block pain throughout the body.
- Attach VibraCoolR to the affected portion (Knee or Ankle) with straps.
- Attach the ice wings filled with ice and attach it at the back of VibraCoolR
- In case of Plantar Facilities Pain Relief attach the ice wing on top of VibraCoolR with the strap.
- Activate Vibration and leave for 10-20 minutes (or as directed by Physician)
- Detach slowly after the therapy.
Please Note: Vibration or ice compression has to be applied in accordance to the requirement of different aches or injury.
