The Technology Battle: Electric Vs Nitrogen Cryotherapy Machines
One of the most distinctive features of a cryotherapy machines is the technology involved in order to produce cold air.
The following table sums up most differences between the three technologies that power cryotherapy chambers and saunas the three cold generation technologies available on the market (Nitrogen, Electric, and Hybrid technologies) in terms of Technical Specifications, Customer Experience, Operational Requirements, and Financial Cost.
NITROGEN CRYOTHERAPY CHAMBER
HYBRID CRYOTHERAPY CHAMBER
ELECTRIC CRYOTHERAPY CHAMBER
|How it works||Turns liquid nitrogen into gas then pushes it in the cryo chamber.||Uses liquid nitrogen to reach temperature and electricity to maintain it.||Uses electricity to compress air and trigger a decrease in temperature.|
|Recommended for||Limited startup cost. Ideal for new businesses or to introduce cryotherapy.||Premium customer care and high-end experiences such as spa or cure resorts.||High frequency and number of existing users. suitable for sports complex and hospitals.|
