Cooling injuries is as old as ice, but while ice helps pain it decreases blood flow and stiffens muscles. High frequency vibration dilates blood vessels to improve circulation and massages muscles to improve flexibility of injured tissues. In addition, vibration stimulates bone reformation, a particularly valuable consideration for tendon and bony issues.
The concept of cold and vibration as "Buzzy for Pain Relief" have been extensively proven to decrease needle pain for injections and blood draws. Combining pain relief with improved healing, a small high frequency vibration unit will be attached to a cold source to provide anti-inflammatory cold in a wearable tech design - "VibraCool." While commercial vibration units are lower frequency and convex, this device will be concave, delivering the maximum surface area to contour to aching or injured body parts.
Design breakthroughs include novel mechanisms for each body part - a moveable unit for lower back pain, a cupping design for plantar fasciitis, and a bilateral unit for each side of the knee after knee replacement.
Icing injuries can require dragging a unit around, or being confined to a chair while ice is left on. VibraCool has neoprene and Velcro fastners to allow you to keep moving while improving pain and speeding recovery.
