    I am gong to outpatient PT starts Friday. I was thinking of renting a Gameready machine. I have these cryo cuffs from the hospital but thinking the compression that the machine provides might be better.

    I using a game ready. I used a cryo cuff for the first time yesterday at PT. for me the difference is a better compression on the game ready and the knee pad used is very large, probably 18 inches and the cold and compression encapsulates the whole knee front, sides and back. The Game Ready has different programs. The one I find myself using is 30 minutes on/30 minutes off, maximum cold and medium compression.

    Good luck!
