Getting the most from your Game Ready . . . .
Prime your unit before use each day. This means running the unit for one minute, on no pressure, with the wrap connected, but not fitted to your body. You only need to do this once at the start of the day.
DO NOT overfill with water – there is a guideline within the water tank reservoir. Using minimal water will ensure you do not have to replace the ice too frequently.
Use the Game Ready unit frequently throughout the day. Shorter and more frequent sessions (Eg. 10-20 minute sessions every 1-2 hours across the day) are likely to be more effective than single sessions.
Use a temperature and pressure that feels tolerable and comfortable. People’s tolerance to cold and pressure varies significantly. Start with a warmer temperature and lower pressure initially. With repeated sessions you can determine you preferred pressure setting (low, medium or high) and target tissue temperature.
The following videos are provided by Game Ready to assist with use of the system and application of the various wraps. More information is available at the Game Ready Help Centre.
