TruCryo is a cutting-edge cryo-technology business that leads the sector in quality and innovation. With UK offices and manufacturing facilities in Shropshire and London, our highly skilled team have a wide range of engineering expertise which has been honed for many years in the technology sector.
Over the decades, the team have designed and developed patented technologies across various specialist sectors including petroleum, entertainment, aviation and cryo. Our in-house expertise includes electrical, mechanical and software/firmware engineering.
Working with experts across many disciplines, including aesthetics, dermatology, physiotherapy and sports science, our range of cryotherapy equipment is designed to meet exacting specifications using state-of-the-art 3D design software.
All TruCryo products undergo a rigorous testing process to ensure performance and quality are never compromised.
Since 2015, product design and engineering innovation have been at the forefront of our capabilities at TruCryo.
The term ‘cryo-stimulation’ literally means ‘stimulation using low temperature’ (“Cryo” from the Latinised form of Greek, “kryos” for “icy cold” + “stimulation” – encouragement of something to make it develop or become more active) and is used as a modality to stimulate a beneficial physiological response from the body.
TruCryo uses the cooling power of carbon dioxide (CO2) – the same as the contents of the fire extinguishers seen on office and clinic walls. The CO2 is in liquid form in the cylinder and, as it leaves, expands and cools to a very chilly -78oC (-108oF), providing a stream of cooling vapour which is applied to the skin.
The technology allows a localised area of skin (the abdomen, a thigh, shoulder etc.) to be cooled quickly from around 35oC/95oF to 4oC/39oF in less than 30 seconds, using a targeted spray of cold vapour. This temperature shock causes blood vessels in the underlying tissue to constrict (vasoconstriction) as a way of protecting the body’s core temperature.
As soon as the cold source is removed, the body warms the area quickly by expanding the blood vessels to around 4 times their original diameter (vasodilation). A rush of freshly oxygenated blood saturates the tissue, bringing with it, hormones, neurotransmitters, and nutrients. At the same time, unwanted by-products and waste produced from natural body processes are removed from the area to be processed by the lymphatic system.
The effect is for the localised tissue to receive all it needs to rejuvenate and restore its optimal functions:
We are using CryoStimulation as an integral part of our physical therapy treatments, with great results. In many cases the CryoStimulation has relieved pain and reduced inflammation more quickly than other methods of treatment. We highly recommend CryoStimulation as a part of physical therapy treatment to any therapist.
