So, how does it work?
Water is pumped through the machine and is adjusted to the temperature selected. The water leaves the pad and enters the reservoir, from there the water is bought back to the set temperature before circulating through the pad. The water flows through the medical grade silicone tubes quilted into the pad and cools the body. Corner elastic bands help to hold the pad in place. The pad has a short length of tubing which connects onto the longer tube and becomes watertight. No water is exposed to the exterior elements anytime during the cycle. The tubing pipe is covered in a soft cotton fabric cover protecting the tubes from damage during use. The connection of the tube is plugged straight into the motor.
The machine has night settings and a built in timer to prevent chills. The settings can be easily changed using the touch screen control panel.
