Starpool develops Zerobody Cryo as alternative to cryotherapy

Zerobody Cryo features unique technology that offers the same benefits as cryotherapy but in a less invasive way

Italian wellness supplier Starpool has unveiled the Zerobody Cryo device to deliver comfortable cold therapy for spa, wellness and sports facilities.

The treatment bed combines dry floatation with cold therapy to deliver the same benefits as cryotherapy, but in a more gentle format.

The low-energy consumption bed consists of an insulated metal tank containing 500 litres of water that’s brought to an operating temperature of 4-6˚C by a refrigerating device. A patented membrane then separates users from the water and envelopes around them to cocoon users with cold while they float in the zero-gravity bed.

Treatments last between three- to eight-minutes and are claimed to help improve stress management, sleep, athletic performance and recovery and longevity.

“We hear of people who reject cryotherapy as too extreme and find diving into ice water physically difficult, as well as impractical,” explained Starpool CEO Riccardo Turri.

“Zerobody Cryo features unique technology that offers the same benefits as cryotherapy but in a less invasive way. Cold therapy enhances general wellbeing, as well as delivering benefits on both a physical and mental level. For these reasons, it’s a treatment widely used in the spa and wellness, sports, beauty and medical sectors.

Available in various finishes, the treatment bed is operated via a touch-screen. Starpool says staff need simple training to manage the device which can be completed in just a few hours.

The system needs free space on the access side, while the chiller must be situated no more than 2m away. It’s also necessary to provide ventilation in the room to avoid overheating the chiller.
