Welcome to All Sensors “Put the Pressure on Us” blog. This blog brings out pressure sensor aspects in a variety of applications inspired by headlines, consumer and industry requirements, market research, government activities, and you.
Pressure in Airflow for Cooling
Some medical procedures involve cooling and pressure to safely implement them. For example, the Cryo 6 therapy system delivers air at temperatures down to -30°C air for efficient pain treatment, swelling reduction and muscle relaxation. The system enables cryotherapy with precise placement and at a constant dosage. Other cooling methods, such as contact cooling, cryogen spray or ice packs pose the risk of skin burns. In contrast, the Cryo 6 system decreases the skin temperature quicker and keeps a constant dosage throughout the entire treatment time.
In dermatology procedures, such as a blue or red LED light therapy that involve exposing the skin to infrared light after a chemical has been applied to improve the efficacy of the treatment, the cooling unit makes the 20-minute procedure tolerable by providing cooling air.
Single-touch buttons on the Zimmer Cryo 6 control panel allow easy adjustment of the therapy fan speed and treatment time. Simply tapping the up or down buttons adjusts either setting. In this case, the level 5 setting indicates a relative measurement made by a pressure sensor.
