Technological advancements in the cryotherapy industry often take shape in the form of machines. There was a time when basic machines could cut it. Currently, you have to consider factors such as safety, design, efficiency, and technological features.
Perhaps the most exciting development in these machines is the Wifi features. Everything is going wireless; why not the cryotherapy industry?
Here’s a review of the Cryosense and Crypod cryotherapy machines.
A Comparison of 2 Wifi Enabled Cryo Chambers: Cryosense vs. Cryopod
In addition to being wifi enabled, the main similarity between Crysensse and Cryopod is that they don’t require a dry-out time. These 2 machines are, however, different, as is shown by the comparison below.
Cooling Method & Manufacturer
The Cryosense machine is manufactured in Spain and uses nitrogen cooling. Crypod, on the other hand, is from the UK and is refrigeration cooled. Nitrogen cooling uses liquid nitrogen to lower the temperatures of the cryo-chamber. This means that your clients have to keep their heads above the treatment area because nitrogen is hazardous and could cause asphyxia.1
Refrigeration cooling uses an electric current to keep the temperatures low. It’s safer and allows you to offer whole-body cryotherapy to your clients.
Warranty & Financing
Both cryotherapy machines come with a 2 year warranty period and have available financing options.
If you’re just starting out, you may not have the financial ability to buy a machine. Financing options allow you to start without breaking the bank. It also allows you to grow your business worry-free, especially if the payment terms are favorable.
Cryotherapy accidents aren’t uncommon, which is why you need to consider safety features.
One particularly disturbing incident is of a salon worker who froze to death in a cryotherapy machine. The saddest part is that her body remained undiscovered for 10 hours.2 Clients are also skeptical about their well-being, and you need to convince them that they’ll be okay.
Cryosense comes with an onboard O2 sensor that monitors the clients’ oxygen levels. The Crypod, however, has more features, including a thermal image camera and a pulse oxygen reader.
Levels of Efficiency
The Cryosense uses around 5-6 liters per session, while the Cryopod uses 4-7 liters. Cryosense is, however, more innovative as it delivers both heat and cryotherapy in one chamber. Customers can either choose to alternate between cold temperatures and heat. This makes sessions more engaging.
Cryosense vs. Cryopod: Which One Is Better?
Both machines have distinct features, and the choice boils down to your business needs. They have a 2 year warranty period and have safety features that your customers would appreciate.
