The first condition is installing the cryogenic chamber in a sufficiently large room that meets the criteria of accommodating a nitrogen based whole body cryo chamber. The recommended floor area is 15 – 20 square meters (45 – 60 square feet).
The CRYO XC™ itself is very versatile and can be installed in most type of rooms as the unit separated into parts is able to pass through doors at a width of 60 cm which is one of kind among cryo chamber equipment. Nevertheless, the cryochamber requires the passage of nitrogen cylinders once the cryo chamber is installed and that must therefore be considered to facilitate the supply of nitrogen cylinders.
Our cryo chamber runs on liquid nitrogen, which is compressed gas into liquid form. Nitrogen in its gas form is nontoxic and is the primary component of the air that we breathe. Nevertheless, if the concentration of nitrogen in the air exceeds a certain limit (below 19% in the ambient air), there is an increased risk of hypoxia (lack of oxygen) which can lead to discomfort in the form of lightheadedness or fainting in very rare cases. That’s why we have a number of security measures in place in each and every installation. First, we require an opening on a wall with a diameter of at least 12 cm to allow for evacuation of nitrogen air from the client cryocabin. This can of course be done through a wall, or the evacuation can also be done with the help of an integrated ventilation system.
To ensure maximum safety within the cryotherapy room, an air renewal system must be installed in nearly all cases. The room must also be equipped with an oxygen sensor to signal oxygen levels within the room. In case the preset level is exceeded an alarm will go off, turn on the ventilation system and make the room 100% safe.
