Are you thinking of getting into the whole-body cryotherapy business, but cannot decide between getting a Cryomed Pro or a Cryomed Mini chamber?
Making a decision between these two models can be difficult. So we’ve decided to go through them and compare them.
While distinctly different, both of these machines feature the following:
- Wi-Fi and LAN connectivity that updates the software and optimizes the device features.
- Remote control feature using a desktop, tablet or smartphone.
- Active reporting system with the figures sent directly to email.
Both chambers also come with a 3-year warranty.
So what are their distinct differences?
Differences Between Cryomed Mini and Cryomed Pro
The Cryomed mini is smaller than a cryomed pro machine. The mini has compact dimensions of 1780 mm (70 inches) high × 1120 mm (44 inches) long × 900 mm (35.5 inches) wide, and requires only a 1-meter square area (or 10.8 sqft) to be installed.
The Cryomed pro on the other hand is significantly larger and has dimensions of 2440 mm (96 inches) high × 1600 mm (63 inches) long × 1016 mm (40 inches) wide. It requires at least a 6 square meters (64.5 sqft) of space on a solid surface for installation.
This makes the Cryomed pro suitable for business use as a standalone while the Cryomed mini would be perfect for integration into another business.
The cryomed mini, given its smaller size, weighs around 250 kg (551 pounds) and can be easily moved from one station to another. It also takes roughly 10 minutes to install, which makes it one of the most portable Cryomed machines.
The Cryomed pro, being larger both in size and weight, is less portable with the lightest pro machine weighing about 350 kg (771 pounds). Due to its weight, the pro should be installed on a solid surface like concrete or a well-tiled floor and not on wooden panels.
The Cryomed mini is less inexpensive, easy to install, and transport, reducing the installation and maintenance costs. It also has low operational costs as it uses less liquid nitrogen.
On the other hand, the Cryomed pro is more expensive. It is also more expensive to install and maintain and increases the operational costs of a business.
Type of Business Suitability
The size and cost of the Cryomed mini makes it suitable for small businesses that have a limited budget and limited space. Nowadays cryotherapy is being adopted as a treatment option for sports-related injuries1 and can be integrated into businesses like spas, tanning salons, sports wellness centers, and beauty businesses.
Larger businesses should however invest in the Cryomed Pro, and get the best out of the machine especially if they have a larger number of clients.
Busy gyms, sports teams, and large medical facilities would most benefit from this machine.
Cryomed Pro vs. Cryomed Mini: Which One Should You Buy?
Both cryotherapy machines can be used for commercial purposes but with one major difference: the model being adopted.
If you’re starting a dedicated cryotherapy center then the Cryomed Pro would be the go-to option while the Cryomed Mini would be perfect for smaller businesses.
