Cryotherapy Machines from Finland: An Overview of the Cryocabin

Designed specifically for commercial use, the CTN Cryocabin from Finland is a great choice for your business. This cryotherapy chamber has a great design, it’s safe, easy to install and operate, and comes with excellent customer service. The exquisitely crafted chamber comes with a sturdy carbon film exterior wall and a wood interior. Let’s dive a little deeper and look at an overview of the Cryocabin.

Overview of the Cryocabin

Space and Mobility

The CTN Cryocabin aims to give the user the best experience possible without them feeling too cramped. It is a small enough machine to fit into most standard doorways without any strain. Each unit also comes equipped with rollers that are incredibly handy when lugging around the 415 kg machine. This makes it easy to take it to expos, trade shows, and even make home visits for clients who prefer a more homey experience. The units typically come in either grey or white colors.

Precise Cold Diffusion

This cryo machine evenly distributes the cold through the chamber’s multi-directional sprayers. With this, it can control the flow of air and provide the client with a directional spray that suits their preferences. It also makes adjustments to the airflow so that users don’t have to keep rotating for even air distribution. This feature ensures that your clients don’t experience any focused cold air on their feet which typically causes a stinging sensation.1  

Cryocabin Safety Features

The CTN Cryocabin comes with two cooling options, liquid nitrogen or liquid air. While they are both safe, liquid air advocates claim that it is the safest option since liquid air is essentially gas that has been condensed.

Finland imposes strict quality standards that are among the highest in the world and each Cryocabin unit has to meet these standards before it can be shipped.

Here are some of the criteria that the cabin must meet:

  1. The backpressure has to be completely self-regulating to enable it to operate with tanks whose pressure ranges from 22 to 28 psi
  2. In the event that a user lowers their body below the manufacturer’s recommended level, a sensor should be able to detect this, stop the gas, and suck out all the gas already in the chamber to keep them safe.
  3. The cabin’s software should be able to detect the location of the user’s head. The cabin must be at a height that offers optimal levels of comfort.

This chamber also comes with 100% breathable air and emergency shutdown to ensure its user’s safety should anything happen.

Cryocabin Price and Efficiency: Is It Worth the Hype?

This cryotherapy machine is one of the most efficient chambers in the market, consuming an average of 1L per minute. It also comes with a warranty of up to 3 years and can provide more than 100 sessions per day, making it perfect for busy premises.

Mobile Cryotherapy Machines vs Non-Mobile: Cryocabin vs. Revocryo

The cryotherapy industry is expected to hit $318.8 million by 2024.1 This is quite impressive and is probably the reason why most business owners are integrating cryotherapy into their existing businesses. 

Introducing cryotherapy, however, comes with one major challenge: limited space.

What if the space you have is not enough for a cryotherapy machine? This is where portable cryotherapy machines come into play.

They are small, compact, and can be easily stored away when not in use.

Here a comparison between the Cryocabin and the RevoCryo mobile cryotherapy machine.

CryoCabin Overview

The CryoCabin from Finland

The CryoCabin is a whole-body cryotherapy machine that can provide more than 100 sessions per day.

It meets the industrial standards for safety and performance and has a de-icing feature that prevents your machine from freezing up when in use.

This machine is one of the most cost-effective whole body cryotherapy machines and only consumes about 4-7 Litres of nitrogen per minute.

CryoCabins manufacturer also offers a warranty extension so that you can focus on growing your business. 

RevoCryo Overview

The RevoCryo

The RevoCryo cryotherapy machine is the perfect addition to small businesses with limited space or new entrants in the cryotherapy market. It also works for business owners who offer mobile cryotherapy services since it comes in compact packaging that is easy to carry around. 

This cryotherapy machine is easy to use, safe, and can withstand harsh temperatures.

Similarities Between CryoCabin and RevoCryo

Both cryotherapy machines are portable and for whole body cryotherapy. Other similarities include:

  1. Cooling system- Both cryotherapy machines have a nitrogen cooling system. 
  2. Warranty- they have a 1-year warranty period.
  3. Built-in skin temp- they don’t have this feature.
  4. Dry Out time- it is not required in both machines.

The two machines both have wifi.

 What Are The Differences Between The Two Machines?

The CryoCabin is a product of Finland, while the RevoCryo is a product of the United States. Here’s an overview of the other differences:

  1. Safety- the CryoCabins safety features include a thermal image camera and a head sensor, while the RevoCryo has a pulse oxygen reader.
  2. Efficiency- CryoCabin uses 4-7 liters per session while RevoCryo uses up to 6 litres.
  3. Financing – there’s no known financing option for the CryoCabin, but you can get financing with the RevoCryo.
  4. Other features- the CryoCabin has a smart tablet installed and a diagnostic display for the client, while the RevoCryo has a self install feature available. 

Cryocabin vs. RevoCryo: Which One Suits Your Business Best?

The Cryocabin and RevoCryo mobile cryotherapy machines are both perfect for small businesses or entrepreneurs looking to open a mobile cryotherapy business.

Their compact size makes them easy to move and store, while their nitrogen consumption makes them efficient and cost-effective.

Both machines have defining features, and it’s up to you to choose the one that suits your business needs best.

Cryo°Cabin and Titan Cryo Compared

Here we compare the features of two popular nitrogen cryotherapy chambers: the Cryo°Cabin™, made in Finland by Cryotech Nordic, and the TITAN™ Cryo cabin, from the United States. Both cryotherapy chambers offer thermal imaging options to ensure the safety of the client and high quality remote WiFi operating systems. The Cryo°Cabin offers its features in different size chambers to suit an individual’s stature. The TITAN™ Cryo Cabin offers several chamber options that allow for large and tall persons, such as professional football players to use the chamber in comfort. Below are some of the features that each provides to its users. Both are liquid nitrogen based, both have electric lifts, and both claim to be the safest.

First Up: Finland

The Cryo°Cabin™ offers a low usage of nitrogen paired with a steady ability to treat many clients in a day. It has a sturdy build and state of the art technology for safety. Perfect for the gym, spa or medical facility, the Cryo°Cabin is a cryotherapy chamber that is efficient and strong with smooth Scandinavian design.

Cryotech Cryo°Cabin

Cryotech Cryo°Cabin

  • Wireless-Remote diagnostics and support, 24″ HD operators touchscreen,12″ HD info display for user
  • Patented Tech-Active Vortex Circulation™ cooling safely yet effectively
  • Low Consumption-Precise flow control system
  • Scandinavian Quality- Industrial grade components with exceptional materials
  • Effortless-Smart software providing a fully automated process
  • Intelligent Safety- Active sensors monitoring and detecting in real-time
  • Thermal imaging camera & head sensor
  • Industrial grade automatic electric lift
  • Patented gas circulation for liquid Nitrogen  or Air – consumes 1L per minute
  • De-icing feature guarantees your unit will not freeze when you need it most

The Titan Cryo Cabin

TITAN™ Cryo Cabin features multiple safety features and electronic monitoring of the system remotely. It caters to sports teams that need cryotherapy chambers that work for large build athletes. TITAN serves up modern design and a look that fits any gym, spa or athletic facility. 

Titan Cryo

Titan Cryo

  • Fully Automated Session Controls with remote diagnostics and a 19′′ HD touchscreen Control Panel 
  • Regulated Intake Controls with a balanced Cabin Temperature 
  • Ultrasonic Head Sensor with Auto Stop 
  • Redundant Safety Shut-Off Switches 
  • 1.3L per minute (session average: 6.0L)
  • TITAN has a height 96′′ which allows for client height up to 6’8′′ and 400lbs 
  • Thermal imaging camera with 10′′ display 
  • Fully Enclosed Electric lift 
  • Easy-open door- and a dual emergency shut off for client and tech 
  • Ultrasonic head sensor 

Electric Lifts In Common

Both cabins use electric lift platforms that adjust to account for the height of the client. These systems have one drawback: they break. Fixing a broken lift platform requires a dismantling of the cabin and a waiting period for parts. Finland’s system requires international shipping for any broken lifts. Advanced systems, such as Cryo Innovations XR Cryochamber use non-mechanical lifts that cannot break: sturdy pads that are stackable for the client to stand on. Sometimes simple is better, especially when a spa has to cancel appointments due to a broken lift.

Broken electric lift arm after only 6 months of use.
This will require weeks of downtime to repair.

Pricing Comparisons

Titan’s sales team quoted this writer with a price of $65,600. Cryo°Cabin quoted $39,000 for their Standard model, with $1,300 shipping.

Contacting the Manufacturer – Easy or Not?

Cryotech in Finland has one drawback: they are in Finland, which is 7 hours ahead of New York, and 10 hours ahead of California. Their website does not list a phone number of anyone to call, not even a service center. Upon filling out the webform to ask how to buy a chamber Cryotech took two days to respond with an email stating that their sales team would respond in a day. They do have suppliers and resellers of their products in the United States; however, those distributors also have to contact Finland in the event there is a problem. Geographically Finland’s closest neighbors are Russia and Estonia, and while Finland is politically distinct from both the shipping distances from Finland and Russia are similar.

Titan Cryo was easier to reach, although contacting them through the phone number listed on their website led to Google Voice. This resulted in a low-quality call and concerns for the stability of the business. In a spirit of fairness we called this number 3 different times from different numbers throughout the work week. All calls resulted in call-forwarding through Google Voice to personal cell phone or laptop. Most professional cryotherapy companies, spas, and gyms invest in normal phone services.

A Misleading Safety Claim

Upon investigation both the Cryo°Cabin™ and Titan failed in our comparison for a significant reason: their websites both claim that the cabins are in some way certified by Underwriter Laboratories, the global safety certification organization. Titan’s website claims that their Cryo Cabin™ is the “only Cryo Cabin in the world tested and certified to UL standards,” and touts their cabin as having “The most experience and safety.” Cryotech Nordic Cryo°Cabin’s™ website claims that it is “100% CE/UL certified.” While both cabins appear safe these statements are concerning as they purport to assure the user of an additional layer of safety that is only available in their product.

UL has not certified either cabin, only the electronic components purchased by the companies to use in the cabin (e.g., electrical box). This is not special: all electronic components in all consumer machines must be certified by UL to be sold in the United States.
