Human Inspired, Technology Driven: The Game Ready Portable GRPro® 2.1 Cold and Compression System

Game Ready® re-engineers recovery with leading technologies inspired by human endeavor – all designed to get people back to being their best after injury or surgery. Thousands of patients, elite athletes, athletic trainers, pro teams in every sport, special military forces, and the world’s foremost orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine doctors, and physical therapists choose Game Ready for our commitment to developing the world’s most innovative, most effective recovery products.

Game Ready has led the way in recovery technology innovation for over two decades. We are here to give you the best, most advanced, most effective therapeutic options for healing faster and recovering better.

For acute injury and post-operative recovery, the easy-to-use, portable GRPro® 2.1 cold and compression system is clinically proven to decrease pain, muscle spasms, and swelling, while improving key physical therapy milestones – naturally and without narcotics.

The revolutionary multi-modality, dual-user Med4 Elite™ expands professional treatment capability for injury and surgery recovery with integrated iceless cold, controllable heat, rapid contrast, and active compression therapies. These therapies together increase PT compliance, improve pain relief, increase muscle strength and range of motion, while reducing muscle stiffness and pain intensity.

For injury and post-op recovery, Game Ready® sets a new standard in clinically proven performance – all backed by extremely positive patient satisfaction.

The Med4 Elite™ and GRPro® 2.1 Systems both offer more therapeutic benefits compared to traditional, passive RICE applications, working dynamically to help patients and athletes recover. And the revolutionary Med4 Elite System goes further, integrating four proven therapeutic modalities to help people return to their best as quickly as possible after injury or surgery.

This means evidence-based improvements in outcomes for patients and greater care satisfaction for providers. This is recovery re-engineered.

HOW DOES THE GRPRO 2.1 SYSTEM WORK?

The GRPro 2.1 cold and compression control unit seamlessly integrates two proven therapies, taking traditional RICE principles to an all-new level, enabling you to heal faster and recover better.

ACTIVE CRYOTHERAPY
In a continuous exchange loop, rapidly circulating ice water actively and evenly removes heat and cools the injured tissue to reduce edema, muscle spasms, and pain.

ACTIVE COMPRESSION THERAPY
Intermittent pneumatic compression actively mimics natural “squeeze and release” muscle contractions, helping to pump edema away while stimulating the flow of oxygenated blood to the injury site.

CIRCUMFERENTIAL COVERAGE
Air pressure conforms the anatomically engineered, low-profile, circumferential wraps to the body for better surface contact, enhancing the system’s ability to deliver consistent cooling and to pull heat away from the injury site.

FASTER, DEEPER COOLING
Faster, deeper-penetrating, longer-lasting intramuscular cooling slows cellular metabolism, helping the body to minimize secondary tissue damage – and less damage means faster recovery.

PORTABLE CONVENIENCE
Easy portability and an available battery pack enable convenient therapeutic treatment on the go, on the sidelines, or wherever required.

INTUITIVE, SIMPLE USER CONTROLS

Game Ready technology is both more powerful and smarter. The GRPro 2.1 features an intuitive, simple interface so patients and athletes can work with their physicians and trainers to use pre-set programs and easily customize compression levels, temperature, and time settings with the touch of a button or the turn of a dial.

GAME READY WRAPS FOR HEAD TO TOE COVERAGE

Game Ready’s comprehensive line of dual-action, no-mess ATX® Wraps (Active Temperature Exchange) is fully compatible with the GRPro 2.1 System for head-to-toe, integrated cold and compression therapy. Featuring patented NASA technology, Game Ready’s low-profile wraps deliver circumferential coverage and greater surface contact for more effective treatments. And they’re anatomically engineered for all major body parts, ensuring better fit and comfort. All of which improves outcomes and increases satisfaction with the recovery process.

GRPRO 2.1 SETTINGS & SPECIFICATIONS

ADJUSTABLE COMPRESSION

Three settings of cyclical pneumatic (air) compression or the option of no compression:

  • High (5 to 75 mm Hg)
    Approximately 2 to 3 minutes of inflation and 1 minute of deflation.
  • Medium (5 to 50 mm Hg)
    Approximately 2 to 3 minutes of inflation and 1 minute of deflation.
  • Low (5 to 15 mm Hg)
    Approximately 4 to 5 minutes of inflation and 1 minute of deflation.
  • None

ADJUSTABLE SET-POINT COLD

Provides consistent temperature across the wrap, improving patient comfort and safety. Cold therapy between 35°F to 50°F (when control unit reservoir full of ice).

DIGITAL TIMER & PRESET PROTOCOLS

For convenient management and treatment of time, without having to continually monitor the system, the Timer can be set for a specific treatment time up to 90 minutes or use one of the available programs which continuously alternate between treatment and rest cycles. Available preset programs include:

  • Program 1 30 minutes on, 30 minutes sleep. No pressure.
  • Program 2 30 minutes on, 30 minutes sleep. Low pressure.
  • Program 3 30 minutes on, 30 minutes sleep. Medium pressure.
  • Program 4 30 minutes on, 60 minutes sleep. No pressure.
