I’m completing equipment for my private rehabilitation room and I wonder which cryotherapy apparatus I should choose. Will a nitrogen device be better or I’d rather choose a CO2 apparatus?

Both types of cryotherapy equipment allow to reach similar therapeutic effects – the main difference is in the cooling medium that is used. Liquid nitrogen cryotherapy devices allow to decrease temperature to about -160°C while the temperature produced by a CO2 apparatus ranges between -70°C and -80°C. It must be noted that using CO2 apparatuses is much more economic.
