Recover Faster With the Recover Ready Pulse Compression Cold Therapy Machine by Omni Ice
The Recover Ready Ice Machine is an industrial-strength compressive cold therapy machine designed for the weekend warrior or the patient who is recovering from surgery.
The Recover Ready Ice Machine was designed by orthopedic surgeons with the recovering patient in mind. The Recover Ready Ice machine was designed to be your Cold Hero during your recovery.
The Recover Ready Ice Machine gently circulates water, cooled by ice, through an insulated hose to a patent-pending anatomic pad to the afflicted body part. Combining cold and compression is the gold standard your body is looking for while recovering.
You can choose between 3 cycle lengths (20, 40, 60 minutes) and 3 cycle strengths (low, medium, and high).
Check with your doctor which cycle is best for you.
- A highly portable machine which means while you are recovering, it can move with you--not against you.
- Settings of High, Medium and Low allow you to dial in the exact compression you need along with the 20, 40, 60-minute session lengths
- Affordable when compared to renting or buying competing cold therapy units.
- It provides active compression which almost all other cold therapy units do not provide.
- The digital dashboard gives you the peace of mind that you are receiving a therapeutic amount of cold therapy during a time-frame that is best suited for your body.
- An industry-leading 1-year ice machine and pad warranty which gives you the confidence to purchase and know you will receive great value from the device.
Ease of Use
- Add water to at least the "Water min" line in the cooler.
- Add ice cubes up to but not past the "Ice Max" line in the cooler.
- Shut lid.
- Plug-in power cord
- Hold the power button in for 3 seconds.
- Choose a compression setting of Low, Medium or High.
- Choose a time setting: 20 minutes, 40 minutes, or 60 minutes.
How often do I use this?
The final decision on usage belongs to your physician, but we find the most common usage is 20 minutes on/20 off. Use low compression immediately after surgery until sutures have set, usually a full week. Again- refer to your physician, but after the first-week switch to medium or high, whatever feels better to you.
How do I get the water out of the wrap?
With the unit powered down and the wrap still connected to the machine, raise it in the air above the machine and squeeze. The water will drain from the wrap back into the reservoir. The hose has one-way valves on either end, so water will not drain if the hose is not attached to the machine. Remember it is not necessary to drain the wrap after every use.
How much ice?
Nothing is colder than ice. For best pain relief, it's important to keep the ice and temperatures in the low 30-degree range. You can use crushed or bagged ice.
What is the best way to keep the cool the water for cold therapy?
The best way to keep your water cold during cold therapy is using in the Omni Ice Freeze Bags. These are the most cost effective cold therapy bag on the market and makes cold therapy significantly easier.
We do not recommend freezing water bottles and placing them inside the cooler because the glue residue from the water bottle can build up inside the hose and damage the cold therapy unit.
Where is the skin barrier?
Some cold machines require a skin barrier to protect against frostbite. We anticipated this and built the barrier into our wrap- it is specifically designed to provide the best pain relief levels without endangering the skin. Even though there is a built-in barrier, DO NOT put it directly on your skin. You still need to have a barrier for your protection.
Is it running?
We designed this to be extremely quiet. It also may take several pumping cycles to feel the full effect at low compression. If you are worried it's not working- put your hand on the machine and count 30. You should feel it vibrate intermittently, which means it is pumping. Always make sure there is enough water in the reservoir as well. If you feel no vibration and the screen won't light, call us: (704) 336-9374
How do I clean the unit properly?
Gently wipe the external surfaces and reservoir interior with Lysol wipes or a similar product. Take care of the hook portion of the wrap, keeping it clear of lint or pet hair for the longest use. If you will be storing unit for more than a week, wipe down, dry with a towel removing as much water as you can. Store flat to avoid pooling in one location of the wrap.

After a surgical procedure, your medical team may encourage you to utilize cold therapy to help you recover. The use of cold treatments is a proven addition to many recovery plans that may be used in conjunction with other supportive therapeutics. Convenient and easy to use at home, these portable therapy machines are often used to reduce post-surgical pain and allow for a more comfortable recovery period. Let’s look at how cold therapy works and the seven devices we recommend that utilize this innovative and effective therapy.
How Cold Therapy Works
Ice has long been understood to be an effective tool in treating sudden, acute injuries to help reduce swelling and pain. The practice of rest, ice, compression and elevation (R.I.C.E.) has become standard when treating injuries, and the use of cold therapies has extended to surgical recovery. The use of therapy machines has integrated the effectiveness of using icy cold water with the convenience of a wrap, cuff or another mechanism to deliver a consistently cold temperature to the affected area. These devices come in different shapes and styles along with related accessories tailored to maximize the health benefits for specific areas of the body. Some of the demonstrated effects of using cold therapies are:
- Reduced pain
- Reduced swelling and inflammation
- Soothed muscles
- Improved sleep quality
- Improved immune function
- Faster metabolism
