This machine is wonderful. The gel pad gets cold immediately after the machine is turned on and is very soothing to the area of my right hip replacement surgery. Really helps with the swelling and healing. I took someone's suggestion and used frozen bottles of water instead of bags of ice. 2 bottles at a time worked great. Very pleased with this purchase.

Is the machine noisy?
No, the unit produces minimal noise during operation, however, it does chime to alert users when the water temperature is greater than 10 degrees celsius and chimes at the end of the selected session.

The cold therapy machine includes a unique therapy pad to conform to any area of the body including the shoulder, arm, back, hip, thigh, knee, calf and ankle.
Can I control the flow rate?
