The use of hot and cold treatment therapies have been shown to provide beneficial outcomes for recovery from trauma, surgery reconstruction, muscle and joint problems. In particular the CombiPod™ Thermostation facilitates:
- Managing or decreasing pain, both during and after treatment. 
- Stimulating tissue healing, accelerating recovery. 
- Reducing joint inflammation and swelling. 
- Improving patient experience and comfort. 
- Optimising drainage of lymphatic fluid. 
- Increasing blood flow and delivery of oxygen to the injury site.
