Zamar Physio

Effective alternative to Ice pack treatment

Zamar Ice Free therapy units work on soft tissue repair and are more effective than conventional Ice pack solutions. If  getting back to peak performance is important to you, then a Zamar Ice Free Therapy Unit is your answer.

Zamar Greyhound

Solutions for preparing Grehounds for racing

Greyhound racing can produce inflamed muscle damage, one of the best ways to prepare your greyhound for peak performance is to treat the Greyhound with an Ice Free machine to promote faster recovery times.

Performance

Combining Cryotherapy and Thermotherapy in controlled quick succession creates vasoconstriction followed by vasodilation. Providing the ability to take temperatures from 40° to 0° in about 60 seconds makes a ZAMAR ICE FREE unit a clear winner.

Recovery

Reducing recovery times by up to 60%. With controlled use of cold and warm therapy particularly during the sub acute stage promotes faster reduction of the edema, increased elasticity. Each area treated precisely with the application of an anatomic wrap.

Non-Invasive

Using a pre programmed touch screen temperature can easily be alternated between -5° to 45° promoting reduced stiffness while delivering an analgesic effect combined with effective vascular exercise, increasing local circulation.

No Ice

A Zamar machine does not need ICE to function. By using a reversal refrigeration system heat and cold can be produced and controlled. Temperature is transported via insulated pipes safely and with little loss of fluid.

So how does Cold Therapy aid soft tissue repair?

Add in text about horses and greyhounds

With any sprain, strain or bruise there is some bleeding into the underlying tissues. This causes swelling and pain. Ice treatment may be used in both the immediate treatment of soft tissue injuries and in later rehabilitation.

During immediate treatment, the aim is to limit the body’s response to injury. Ice will help by:

  • Prevent or reduce swelling to the injured area (inflammation)
  • Reduce the underlying bleeding into the soft tissues
  • Reduce muscle pain and spasm by numbing the area and limiting the effects of any associated swelling

These effects all help to prevent the area from limiting movement and becoming stiff, this is done by reducing excess tissue fluid that can accumalate as a result of injury and inflammation.

The normal advice given by the experts follows the RICE principal

  • Rest – To avoid further pain or injury aggravation
  • Ice – To reduce swelling and accelerate the natural healing processes
  • Compression – This is used to support the the injured limb and minimise swelling
  • Elevate – It is normal to try and raise an injured limb above the heart to further reduce swelling

Icing normally for 20 – 30 minutes every 2 – 3 hours is the recommended protocol for dealing effectively with soft tissue damage. Combining the icing with compression and elevation will further aid the recovery process.

In the later, or rehabilitation, phase of recovery the aim of the procedure is restoring normal movement and function. This stage the effects of cold therapy can enhance other treatments, such as gentle exercise, by reducing pain and muscle spasm. This then allows better movement. If you are doing exercises as part of your treatment, it can be useful to take a cold therapy session before exercise. The reason for this is the treated area will still be a little numb and less susceptible to the feeling of any pain. Gentle excercise can also be done with a cold therapy wrap in place, just bear in mind you will be attached to a machine during the cold therapy session.

Why is a Zamar Ice Free machine better than conventional Ice Pack treatments?

Assuming you want to receive the maximum benefit for the least amount of time involved then having a sustainable and controllable source of ice can be a problem. But by using a Zamar machine and a suitable wrap you can easily repeat the treatments as often as required. The wraps are close fitting providing compression to further reduce swelling and often it is relatively easy to find a position where the affected limb can be placed in an elevated position.

How to use a Zamar Machine and the associated wraps

Zamar machines pulse cold, they swell and contract automatically giving a very gentle massage while providing a controlled temperature for prolonged periods of time and as there is no actual ice involved the process to recovery can be easier and because it is a relatively simple process the likelihood of repeating the treatments is raised.

Zamar Ice Free therapy units are self contained, automatically controlled and easy to use regularly.
