Contemporary cryogenics has been developing from the end of the 19th century since the liquefaction of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen, and also the industrial production and storage of liquid coolants, enabled the development of cryobiology and the use of extremely low temperatures in medicine. The term "cryotherapy" was first used in 1908 by A.W. Pusey to describe the treatment of skin lesions with very low temperatures [Zagrobelny et al. 1999; Jezierski 2006;]. Currently… Expand
Mathematical Modeling of Skin Temperature Changes with Whole-Body Cryotherapy
The physical processes taking place in the cryochamber during the therapeutic treatment were investigated. The analysis of temperature fields during whole-body-cryotherapy (WBC) in skin integumentExpand
Numerical Analysis of Full Body Cryotherapy Efficiency with Cryochamber Design Modification
This article discusses the measurement of skin under the influence of low temperatures during the modernization of the cryochamber wall. In this paper, six different cryochamber models were analyzed.Expand
On the Issue of Comparing Methods of Skin Repair with a Burn
TLDR
The main goal of this study is to simulate and compare the 3 cryotherapy methods to reduce the temperature of the burnt tissues of the human body in order to facilitate the healing and regeneration of tissues. Expand
Temperature changes in selected areas of body surface induced by systemic cryostimulation.
TLDR
There is an important difference in response to cryogenic temperature between men and women in a series of 10 sessions of systemic cryostimulation. Expand
Analysis of Effect of Clothing in Procedure of Cryotherapy using Computer Simulation
TLDR
A computer model is created that is close to reality with some assumptions, however, this model allows you to experiment without harming the patient to increase the therapeutic effect, and can be used for the most convenient selection of protective shoes. Expand
Mathematical Modeling Non-Stationary Heat Exchange of Object Whole-Body Cryotherapy
This paper discusses the dynamics of measuring the temperature of the integumentary tissues of a whole-body cryotherapy object (WBC). Studies have shown the need to use a protective layer on theExpand
Effectiveness of Cryotherapy on Pain Relief among Patients Receiving Intramuscular Injection
Background: Cryotherapy is one of the simplest and oldest therapeutic techniques used in physical rehabilitation; it involves the cooling of a target tissue to promote a decrease in local metabolismExpand
Investigation of the Effect of Low Temperatures on Each Layer of the Skin Using Computer Simulations
In this paper, the question of measuring skin integument under the influence of low temperatures is considered. The effect of low temperatures on each layer of the skin was investigated. A model isExpand
Effects of lymphatic drainage and local cryo exposition regeneration after high-intensive exercises.
TLDR
Neither CRY nor MLD hastened the recovery of muscle performance, when applied for 30 min, according to the results of a randomized controlled trial. Expand
Unchanged Erythrocyte Profile After Exposure to Cryogenic Temperatures in Elder Marathon Runners
TLDR
WBCST treatments, repeated every other day, do not cause hemolytic changes in elder men with high or low physical activity, and are a procedure that does not increase the level of erythrocytes or their hemoglobinization in athletes. Expand

[Cryotherapy in osteoporosis].
TLDR
Cryotherapy represents numerous advantages: it takes short time for applying, being well tolerated by patient, also patient's status improves quickly, and contraindications against cryotherapy are rare, making cryotherapy a method for a broad use in prophylactics and treatment of osteoporosis.

TLDR
Whole-body cryotherapy is a treatment used for various conditions, especially rheumatological disease and is known to encourage recovery from muscular traumas, although well-controlled studies have not been published. Expand
Whole-Body Cryotherapy in Athletes
TLDR
The cold stimulation of whole-body cryotherapy shows positive effects on the muscular enzymes creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase, and it should be considered a procedure that facilitates athletes’ recovery. Expand

Changes in lipid profile in response to three different protocols of whole-body cryostimulation treatments.
TLDR
The aim of this research was to estimate the influence of 5, 10 and 20 sessions of 3 min-long exposures to cryogenic temperature on the lipid profile in physically active men and found that changes in lipid profile occurred after at least 10 sessions of cryostimulation. Expand
Effects of whole-body cryotherapy on serum mediators of inflammation and serum muscle enzymes in athletes
TLDR
As measured by changes in serum CK and LAD concentrations, and cytokines pathway, short-term cold air exposure was found to improve recovery from exercise-induced muscle injury and/or damage associated with intense physical training. Expand
The increase in systolic and diastolic blood pressure after exposure to cryogenic temperatures in normotensive men as a contraindication for whole-body cryostimulation
TLDR
Cryostimulation of the whole body is a stress factor and a stimulus for the body which significantly increases systolic blood pressure, but the changes are temporary and not harmful for normotensive individuals. Expand
The influence of single whole body cryostimulation treatment on the dynamics and the level of maximal anaerobic power
TLDR
A single whole body cryostimulation may have a minor influence on short-term physical performance of supramaximal intensity, but it leads to improvement of velocity during the start as evidenced by shorter time required to obtain MAP. Expand
Influence of the ten sessions of the whole body cryostimulation on aerobic and anaerobic capacity.
TLDR
It can be concluded that whole body cryostimulation can be beneficial, at least in males, for increasing anaerobic capacity in sport disciplines involving speed and strength. Expand
