Squid revolutionizes injury recovery by combining sequential intermittent compression with cold treatment to provide maximum results. Squid drives the cold treatment deep into the tissue, reducing swelling and directing fluids away from the treated area towards the heart. Swelling is reduced, thereby improving blood flow to the injured tissue and delivering much needed nutrients and oxygen.
Squid's patent pending sequential intermittent compression assists athletes in post-workout and post-performance recovery.
Cold therapy has been shown to be effective in decreasing pain, muscle spasms, and swelling in injured or overworked joints and muscles. Squid takes this one step further and allows the benefit of cold therapy to be felt more quickly and more effectively.
"With the portability and ease of use, we have been able to use them (the Squid) not only in the treatment room, but also on the bench during games, as well as on the field during training in the case of an acute injury. This ability to utilize not only the cold, but also the compression of the unit, in such a portable manner has allowed us to limit the amount of swelling during that initial phase of injury, thus speeding the recovery form injury." - Rick Guter ATC/PT - Head Athletic Trainer U.S. Women's National Soccer Team
