a prospective, single-blind randomized controlled trial
the trial includes a comparison of the effects of standard cryotherapy (ice) with static compression to a cryotherapy device (game ready® injury treatment system) on the postoperative rehabilitation of total knee arthroplasty patients. this clinical trial is multi-site, prospective, randomized, and controlled. it presents a unique and robust study with substantive interim data representing treatment results from approximately 38% of an intent-to-treat subject pool of patients with osteoarthritis who were scheduled for unilateral, single-incision total knee arthroplasty (tka). patients were randomized to a cold and intermittent pneumatic compression test device (game ready® injury treatment system) or to ice and static compression (ice and compression bandage) and were stratified according to bmi and whether they had had a tka on the contralateral knee.
key findings in this clinical trial are:
subjects using a cryotherapy device reported improved pain relief over time at both the two- and six-week follow-ups compared to control subjects.
the cryotherapy group exhibited more than
double the physical function abilities of the
control group in both the timed up and go and six-minute walk test assessments.
more subjects using the cryotherapy device were able to perform complex weight-bearing physical activities by six weeks than were control subjects #gameready #game_ready #injury #treatment #surgery #bahrain #manama #therapists #sport #physical #athletic #trainers #patients #athletes #physicians #orthopedicsurgery #orthopedic #surgeons #compression #doctor #therapy #orthodontics #med4elite #med4_elite #supportmedical
