Game Ready Publishes Guide on Obtaining Cold Therapy With Active Compression Technology

Industry Leader's New E-Book Details the Options Available to Patients Wishing to Purchase or Rent Units for Home Use

CONCORD, CA--(Marketwired - July 27, 2015) - Game Ready®, the leader in active compression and cold therapy technology for injury treatment and post-operative recovery, today announced it is publishing a new guide to help patients learn about the different ways they can obtain a Game Ready unit for home use. The e-book, Game Ready Reimbursement & Financial Guide, is available for free download at info.gameready.com/reimbursement-guide.

To maximize the recuperative benefits of cold therapy with active compression (often after surgery), most healthcare providers recommend applying the treatment multiple times per day. However, for most people, this is not possible, and certainly not practical, because they can only access the equipment at a physical therapy facility. Using Game Ready at home hastens the recovery process and gives patients the ability to better control pain and swelling whenever they need to, without having to wait for their next physical therapy appointment. Game Ready's new e-book details multiple options available for patients to rent or purchase a unit to use at home. Among the guide's features:

  • Details on whether a Game Ready unit will likely be covered under the patient's insurance plan
  • The advantages of an in-home Game Ready System from a cost perspective
  • Ways to pay for a Game Ready System if insurance does not cover the cost

"Regular application of cold therapy with active compression, which occurs with the Game Ready System, can help speed up the recovery process by accelerating the body's natural repair mechanisms," says Craig Grabell, President and CEO of Game Ready. "Unfortunately, health insurance plans do not always provide coverage for this treatment in an at-home setting, but that doesn't mean that patients shouldn't be able to enjoy its many benefits, including controlling swelling, preventing edema, and reducing pain without prescription medication. Our new e-book guides patients through the options for using Game Ready at home in order to ease their recovery while healing from injury or surgery."
