Game Ready announces that it has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its Med4 Elite orthopedic rehabilitation device.

The Med4 Elite is designed to deliver iceless cold therapy, heat therapy, rapid contrast (alternating heat and cold) therapy, and intermittent pneumatic compression therapy via an intuitive touchscreen computer interface, to help therapists deliver specific therapy targeted to each patient.

“With the launch of the Med4 Elite we are changing the post-operative and post-injury landscape. This is a landmark moment for Game Ready and our customers,” says Craig Grabell, CEO and president of Game Ready, in a media release.

“The Med4 Elite features Game Ready’s proprietary Rapid Changeover Technology for contrast therapy, which allows for a groundbreaking switch from heat at 113 degrees Fahrenheit to cold at 38 degrees Fahrenheit in less than one minute. We are excited to build on the success of our GRPro 2.1, and add additional therapies that will help providers get all their patients back to being their best,” he adds.

As opposed to other current methods of rapid contrast therapy, which require multiple cumbersome devices and a large amount of space, the Med4 Elite provides a greatly improved application of therapy due to it’s compact but powerful footprint and wide portfolio of wraps that help deliver the therapy, Game Ready notes.
