How does Squid work?
Squid operates by combining sequential compression with cold therapy.
Each Squid wrap was uniquely developed for a specific body part with
a sequential compression bladder* designed to direct swelling away
from the treated body part while driving cold deep into the tissue.
The combination of directional sequential compression and deep penetrating
cold may help in reducing edema and pain while allowing better blood
circulation in the treated area and reducing inflammation.
athletes Squid is an excellent recovery tool providing high efficacy
cold therapy while driving metabolites such as lactic acid away
from the treated muscle, increasing local circulation and getting
you ready faster for more action! The sequential compression and
cold work together to remove lactic acid and drive the cold deep
into the treated muscle or joint.
* Except for the Shoulder
Wrap, which do not benefit from sequential compression.
long is a treatment?
of each treatment is 15 minutes and is controlled by the Squid pump
control unit. At the end of each treatment the pump will sound a
short beep and turn off.
often can I use Squid?
When used with a clod gel pack Squid should not be applied to treat
the same location more than once an hour to avoid risk of frostbite.
When used without a gel pack (compression only) use as needed. Squid
should be used over clothing or over the provided cloth barrier
provided with the elbow, knee, leg, and wrist systems.
is Squid different from other cold therapies?
Squid is the only system available that combines intermittent sequential
compression with cold therapy. Regular cold gel packs and ice water
circulators are less effective since the vascular blood vessels
system located under the skin layer caries the cold away from the
treated site, resulting in superficial cold treatment and less penetration
into muscles ligaments and bones where it is mostly needed. In order
to drive cold deep into the tissue Squid applies intermittent sequential
compression, temporarily reducing venues blood flow and allowing
the cold to penetrate through the skin deep into the muscles ligaments
the Squid gel pack can be frozen to 0° F while maintaining its
elasticity thereby delivering significantly lower temperature compared
to ice water circulators resulting in a significantly shorter treatment.
long does it take to charge the pump?
When first used, charge the pump for 8 hours or overnight. Consecutive
charges will require 4-6 hours. The Squid pump will hold sufficient
charge to drive 40-50 treatments before recharging. The Squid pump
can be used while charging.
to put on each wrap?
Each wrap goes on easily and in a few seconds. Step by step instructions
are included with your Squid wrap.
long does a gel pack needs to freeze?
When first used, freeze the gel pack for 12 hours to get maximum
cold. After each use, the gel pack needs to be put back in the freezer
for 3 hours to reach maximum cold once again.
is the warranty for Squid?
Squid pump, wrap, tube and gel pack, if properly used, will be free
from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year
from the date of purchase.
