cTreatment was created with the well-being of the patient in mind. But because of the attention given to pain reduction and a shorter, safer recovery time, medical professionals greatly benefit from using cTreatment in their patient’s treatment as well.

Extensive in-house R&D began in 2004 focusing on the cause of swelling and pain; from this Waegener developed medical treatments based on local, computer controlled energy exchange with the human body. Developed to limit the negative effects of the body’s natural recovery, Waegener cTreatments allow for continuous extraction of excess energy in a controlled and safe way; reducing the inflammatory reaction to the optimal level.

Patient and trauma specific, these standardized, reproducible treatments for patient rehabilitation are safe, reliable and user friendly. The medical professional is able to apply this treatment in the day-to-day practice.

Clinical experience using cTreatments has shown a number of wide ranging benefits for the medical professional.

Medical benefits

Faster recovery time and faster mobility

Because cTreatment limits the negative effects of the inflammation process – the natural recovery mechanisme of the human body – the recovery time is greatly reduced and this may lead to shorter hospitalization. The use of cTreatment also reduces or prevents swelling, blister formation and wound problems so the chances of having to postpone surgery are also reduced.

  • Limiting the negative effects of inflammation response and thereby pain and swelling
  • Reduction of secondary tissue damage
  • Long treatment protocols possible with very profound and deep tissue response
  • Improved recovery and reduced discharge time
  • Prevent operation delay due to swelling or blisters after trauma

Controllable and reproducible

The treatment allows for automated guidance performed by a computer controlled medical device. Every phase of a treatment can be accurately replicated, a vital advantage in patient care.  This means that the treatment is completely standardized and reproducible, resulting in a very reliable and user friendly patient rehabilitation.

  • Computer controlled energy exchange
  • Standardized, reproducible protocols for various indications, seamlessly implemented in existing hospital routines
  • Individual and trauma specific treatments
  • Healing phase specific treatments

Less pain for the patient

cTreatment limits the negative effects of the inflammatory response of the body. This results in less pain and less swelling after tissue trauma in surgery, rehabilitation and sports. Due to less pain the patient will also need less pain medication, which reduces the risk of certain side effects.

  • Less pain and swelling
  • Reduction of need for analgesics
  • High patient comfort & satisfaction

Hygienic and safe

cPads are single patient use, anti allergic and latex free.

The liquid used by the system prevents microbial growth and safety limits are always respected by the device.

The cServer is built with a closed liquid loop which is obviously very important for hygienic reasons.

  • Single patient
  • Closed liquid loop
  • Reduction of need for analgesics
  • Less risk of post-op complications
  • No frostbite, nerve palsy or delayed wound healing
  • Less or no rebound effect of the skin, due to progressive and controlled tissue temperature drop
  • Reliable support of surgery outcome

High patient satisfaction

Well tolerated and comfortable single use treatments resulting in less pain and swelling, with less or no rebound effect, more involvement of the patient in their own recovery process and faster regain of normal daily activity.

As the cServer is able to run cTreatment 24 hours a day and has a low level of noise pollution, cTreatment provides extra patient comfort. Even at night the patient can use cTreatment which will give him a good sleep, peaceful night.

  • Less pain and swelling
  • Reduction of need for analgesics
  • Good sleep – Peaceful nights
  • Single patient cPad

Easy to implement in the hospital routine

The fact that cooling only results in a positive outcome when the duration of the treatment is long enough and at precise thresholds and when the treatment is indication, phase of rehabilitation and patient specific, leads automatically to computer controlled treatments to make the platform user and labor friendly. Ice applications of course are not precise enough and would – when used for long treatment times – mean additional manpower.

The cServer is easy to use; selecting the indication specific cTreatment is done by some simple touches at the screen and only has to be done the first time the single patient cPad is put on the injured body part. From then on, the cPad recognizes the phase of rehabilitation of the patient and it’s only a question of one or two touches on the screen.

You decide where you implement cTreatment in your daily hospital routine and the patient always can add cTreatment pain management when he has complains about pain.

The anatomical cPad is easy to fix around the injured body part. The body part specific cPads guarantee an optimal energy exchange. The cPad only has to be taken off the patient at the end of the cTreatment session. When the patient wants to pause cTreatment because of a short walk or a toilet stop, the cPad can stay at the body part.

Once the cTreatment is selected and the cPad is fixed, there is no need for control as the computer controls the whole cProtocol you selected. In the system – although the cServer is very stable – an error message is built in which provides optimal safety without extra control of the nurse or the physiotherapist. So although effective cooling needs long periods of energy exchange, you don’t need to control the cTreatments and can spend full attention to the nursing of other patients.

The cServer has a very low need for maintenance. When the eject procedure is all the time respected, there will be little to no technical problems at all.

  • Pre-installed indication specific treatments
  • Selecting the indication specific cTreatment is only done the first time a patient gets his single patient cPad
  • Running cTreatment is done by some simple touches on the screen
  • cTreatment doesn’t need control of the nurse or physiotherapist during the whole period of treatment
  • Implementable in your hospital routine the way you prefer

User and labor friendly

Anatomically designed cPads, clear and concise cServer touch screen interfaces combined with the low maintenance cServer technology result in an easy to use treatment platform. 
The fact that cooling only results in a positive outcome when the duration of the treatment is long enough and when the treatment is indication, phase of rehabilitation and patient specific leads automatically to computer controlled treatments to make it user and labor friendly.

  • No regular exchange of icing
  • Reduction of need for analgesics
  • Less risk of post-op complications
  • High patient comfort & satisfaction

Cost saving

The use of cTreatment results in a reduction of hospital stay, a reduction of the need for analgesics, long and safe cooling sessions without the need of control from the nurse or physiotherapist, patients who sleep – thanks to the use of cTreatment – very well, …

Summarized, cTreatment not only leads to a more labor friendly situation and satisfied patients but the benefits by implementing cTreatment results also in cost saving for as well the medical environment as the patient.

  • Reduction of hospital stay
  • Reduction of need for analgesics
  • User and labor friendly
  • Peaceful sleep, optimal nights
