Every Stage Of The Healing Process Covered
Offering cooling, contrast and heat therapy all in one device, ProMOTION EV1 could be used for every stage of the healing process. We spoke to Dr David Rhodes and Dr Jill Alexander, practitioners working in elite sport and academia, about the three stages of recovery from acute sporting injury, and how they would apply the ProMOTION EV1 device at each stage. Here’s what they had to say…
The cooling application can be set from 6 to 15 degrees – the optimal temperature range to apply in the acute phase of an injury.
When the patient starts moving out of those initial acute stages of injury, where the inflammation is beginning to stop, contrast therapy can be used. The cooling will help to control any ends of the inflammatory stage that’s occurring, while the heat therapy helps with proliferation, maximising the tissue pliability.
Contrast therapy is typically this is done through cold and warm water immersion, but with ProMOTION EV1 there is no need for water.
When the patient is moving out of the proliferation stage into the remodelling stage of healing, applying heat can aid with the alignment and pliability of those tissues to make them stronger. ProMOTION EV1 heats to the optimal 38 – 40 degrees temperature range in seconds and can maintain this temperature throughout the treatment. For deeper tissue injuries applying compression will allow those deeper tissues to get the therapeutic effect.Book a demo Book a rental
Typical uses in Football
ProMOTION EV1 is a versatile and easy to use device, enabling both medical teams and players to apply targeted therapy to any part of the body:
– Handheld for targeted hot/cold therapy
– Within a compression wrap for joints and larger muscle groups
– Strapped in place for use without compression
– Handheld for hot/cold massage, with creams or gels
Why Use Targeted Cryotherapy?
Evidence supports the use of cryotherapy as short-term pain relief for acute soft-tissue injury management. However, short-term adverse effects to dynamic stability and muscle strength (up to a 16% reduction) have been reported following unfocussed ice interventions, potential increasing risk of injury when returning to weight bearing activity.
New research has shown that targeted cryotherapy, such as that offered by ProMOTION EV1, has the potential to both provide necessary relief and minimise adverse effects, allowing patients to return to weight-bearing activity earlier.
ProMOTION EV1 can be used across the body, but is most commonly used on the:

ProMOTION has been good for us. It was something that we thought was quite unique in the sense of, the size of the unit, the ease of use of the unit, the fact that we could do cold treatments, hot treatments or do contrast treatments with it as well was obviously of benefit.
