Game Ready Amputee Wraps exclusively through MSC!
As a leader in workers’ compensation management, MSC Care Management, a One Call Care Management company, is dedicated to finding utilization solutions to reduce costs and shorten return to work time for our customers’ injured workers. That's why MSC has entered into a strategic partnership with Game Ready®, the leader in injury treatment and post-operative recovery through active compression and cold technology, to develop and launch a new amputee wrap for below-the-knee amputee patients.
The Problem with Other Wraps
Traditional cold therapies may have inconsistent temperatures, insufficient coverage of the injured area, and provide a potential for frostbite. In addition, traditional wraps provide only static pressure - not allowing for maximum efficacy. But what if there was a device for the amputees that could minimize all of those deficiencies and provide additional benefits in the process?
The new Game Ready amputee wrap leverages technology NASA used in the design of astronaut spacesuits. This best-in-class orthopedic medical device will aid in post-operative recovery of patients with lower limb amputations.
Controlling inflation and swelling after surgery can allow the body to heal faster. However, conventional techniques, such as ice bags and cold packs, may provide inconsistent and uncontrolled temperatures as well as poor coverage of the injured area that is less than ideal. Traditional bandage wraps lack precise application of pressure.
Game Ready’s ACCEL™ technology combines active compression and cold therapies that help to minimize pain and swelling while increasing blood flow and delivering oxygen to the injured area. As a result, lymphatic drainage is optimized, cellular oxygen supply is encouraged, and tissue healing is stimulated.
Those solutions mean these life changing benefits:
•Reduced pain and swelling
•Reduced number of prosthetic fittings due to volume fluctuations
•Reduced usage of pain medication
