    Safety Features

    Learn about the purpose of safety features in a cryotherapy chamber and how they can help ensure a safe environment for operators and cryotherapy users.

    Overview of Safety Features

    Cryotherapy chambers can vary in size, extent of exposure of the body, applications, but also levels of safety.
    The most important prerequisite for facilities that operate nitrogen cryotherapy chambers and their clients is knowing that users are entering a safe environment each time they use it.

    So how do I find out which cryotherapy chamber is safe and how is safety ensured?

    We can start by looking at the safety features built-in to the equipment and their purpose.

    These are the most important ways to ensure safety for clients. Description
    Controlled environment inside the cryo cabin The system is designed to distribute cool air evenly throughout the whole cryocabin and to maintain the desired temperature throughout the session. The temperature in the cabin cannot exceed the safe level at any point.
    Operation Guidelines Understanding operation guidelines, all settings and limits of a session as well as LN2 handling.
    Training Cryotherapy chambers should always be installed by the manufacturer's technicians or authorized representative. During Operator Training, future operators are instructed on how to operate the unit safely as well as how to instruct clients during a session.
    Safety Features installed on the Equipment Safety features built-in to the equipment ensure a safe environment for the client and the operator. The unit adjusts the environment based on the readings from the machine.
    Oxygen Monitor While handling liquid nitrogen, having an oxygen monitor on-site is a must. A mobile or wall-mounted oxygen monitor are recommended gear for all cryotherapy locations. However, a built-in oxygen monitor can assist in controlling the operation of the unit and has the ability to cut off the flow of liquid nitrogen when the oxygen level in the room drops below a set level. Oxygen Monitors built into the cryotherapy chamber are more useful for monitoring the surrounding environment inside the room than the cryotherapy chamber itself. They are not intended to replace certified oxygen monitoring systems and must not be used as such.
    Client Platform/Lift Clients come in many sizes, that is why it's important to be able to adjust where the customer is positioned inside the client cabin. Not having a lift and raising clients with pads does not offer the required comfort and safety.
    Door Sensor A built-in Door Sensor can cut off the flow of the coolant into the system and immediately stops the treatment.
    Exhaust Fan The cryotherapy unit must be equipped with an exhaust fan that evacuates nitrogen vapors from inside the mechanism.
    Emergency Button The emergency button immediately shuts down the unit.
    Safety Features in the facilities Safety features inside the facilities are built to ensure a safe environment by monitoring and ventilating the air.
    Equipment Certification The product has a CE or UL mark, which means the product conforms to the electrical standards. Additionally, knowing the cryotherapy machine was made in an ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facility or equivalent offers assurance of quality.
