ProThermo PT-9
The ProThermo PT-9 therapy system is an electronically controlled thermal therapy and compression device; for the treatment of both chronic and post-operative pain and edema. This versatile system is designed for use in hospitals, clinics and training rooms.
ProThermo PT-9 Compression & Localized Thermal Therapy Device

The ProThermo® PT-9 therapy system is capable of performing therapies for the following:

Pneumatic Compression Therapy for Edema and Lymphedema: Compression therapy provides compressed air to the therapy wrap and transfers pressure to the treatment site. This added external pressure aids in reducing the pooling of blood and lymphatic fluid in the targeted extremity. The compression treatment provided by the unit uses a preset pressure setting and cycle time.

Cold Therapy:
Cold Therapy passes cool fluid through the wrap for the management of pain, discomfort and swelling. If prescribed, Cold therapy can be used in combination with Pneumatic Compression therapy.

Heat Therapy:
Heat Therapy passes warm fluid through the wrap for the management of pain and discomfort. If prescribed, Heat therapy can be used in combination with Pneumatic Compression therapy.

Thermal Contrast Therapy:
Thermal Contrast Therapy passes fluid through the wrap in an alternating cycle of Cool-Heat-Cool-Heat for the management of pain, discomfort and swelling. During Thermal Contrast Therapy, the unit will cool down the circulating fluid to 49°F for twenty (20) minutes and then heat up to 105°F for ten (10) minutes. This cycle is repeated until the prescribed duration of treatment is completed.

Treatment Modalities

Precise Temperature Control

  • Cold Therapy between 37°F to 49°F
  • Heat Therapy between 100°F to 105°F
  • Contrast Therapy - During Thermal Contrast Therapy, the unit will cool down the circulating fluid to 49°F for twenty (20) minutes and then heat up to 105°F for ten (10) minutes. This cycle is repeated until the prescribed duration of treatment is completed.
     

Compression Therapy (3 settings)

  • Treatment for Edema and Lymphedema in the Upper and Lower Extremities with alternating compressions of Low (15 mmHg), Med (30 mmHg) and High (50 mmHg)
  • Bifurcation treatment – treat 2 patients simultaneously, or 2 body parts on the same patient at the same time.

Indications

Pain:

Localized thermal therapy (hot or cold) for post traumatic and post-surgical medical and/or surgical conditions.

Edema:

Reduction of edema associated with soft tissue injuries such as burns, post-operative edema and ligament sprains. Treat and assist healing of cutaneous ulceration (wounds), reduce healing time, enhance arterial circulation (blood flow), reduce compartmental pressures, reduce edema (swelling), reduce the need for anticoagulant (blood thinning) medications.

Lymphedema:

Treatment of disorders associated with vascular or lymphatic insufficiency such as Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), venous stasis ulcers, post-mastectomy edema and chronic lymphedema.

Precautions:

  • Carefully read user instructions and warnings prior to operation.
  • Therapy wraps are non-sterile unless specifically labeled as sterile, and should not be directly applied to an open wound. Do not use directly over breached skin. This product should not be used during the inflammatory phlebitis process or during episodes of pulmonary embolism, congestive heart failure, pulmonary edema, suspected deep vein thrombosis, acute inflammations of the veins (thrombophlebitis), decompensated cardiac insufficiency, arterial dysregulation, erysipelas, deep acute venal thrombosis (Phlebothrombosis), carcinoma and carcinoma metastasis in the affected extremity, decompensated hypertonia, acute inflammatory skin diseases, infection, venous or arterial occlusive disease or in any instances where increased venous and lymphatic return is undesirable. Use with caution on an extremity which is not sensitive to pain. Individuals with extremely low blood pressure should check with their doctor before using ThermoTek products.
  • A licensed healthcare practitioner must select the correct temperature setting. Patients vary in sensitivity to cold. A regular check of the temperature must be made once it has been established for the patient. Caution should be taken during prolonged use, for children, diabetics, incapacitated patients, and those with decreased skin sensitivity or poor circulation.
  •  Due to individual differences in sensitivity and susceptibility to cold, patient’s skin should be frequently observed. Follow instructions of your physician for length, frequency and duration of treatment.
  • These products are to be fitted initially by a healthcare professional that is familiar with the purpose for which they are used. The healthcare professional is responsible for providing wearing instructions and precautions to other healthcare professionals, care providers involved in the patient’s care, and the patient. If unusual swelling, skin discoloration or discomfort occurs, use should be discontinued and a healthcare professional consulted.
  • A therapy wrap with therapy unit should be used in a medical facility or clinical environment with direct healthcare provider supervision. If the prescribing healthcare practitioner determines it is appropriate for a patient to use the therapy wrap at home, the healthcare practitioner must provide the patient with adequate and appropriate instructions for use of the device. Further, the healthcare practitioner must monitor the patient’s use of the device to assure appropriate use of the device and appropriate application of cold therapy.
  •  Cold therapy should not be used by patients with Raynaud’s Disease, poor peripheral circulation, diabetes, decreased skin sensitivity or hypersensitivity to cold.
  • Do not attempt to sterilize this device by any means.
  • Do not use wraps near open flame.
  • Do not smoke while therapy wraps are in use.
  • Do not wrap the therapy wrap so tightly as to restrict blood or fluid flow. Do not use pins to secure the therapy wrap or hoses.
  • Do not allow the therapy wrap or hoses to contact sharp objects.
  • Dressings used under the therapy wrap should be applied lightly.
  • Wraps should not be left open (off of the patient) and inflated to a “balloon” or “ball” state for extended periods of time.
  • Prolonged exposure to cold has a potential to cause injury to tissue. Please consult your medical practitioner for therapy setting, duration and frequency of treatment.
