Manuscript with regard to a medical trail using cTreatment, accepted for publication in International Orthopeadics.
A randomized, controlled trial performed by the Medical University Graz, Austria and OLVG Hospital Amsterdam, The Netherlands shows positive outcome of using cTreatment after primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
“The new computer-controlled cooling therapy device provides benefits in terms of early post-operative remobilisation with respect to ROM and pain, which might be attributed to a reduced inflammatory response, as well as reduced secretion and bleeding. The cTreatment® system appears to be a safe and efficient procedure.”
