Sleeping or lying down in a cold water tub for a long time reduces injuries.

Cold water and even ice water can significantly reduce the onset of muscle soreness and is a natural pain reliever.

The change of temperature when an athlete leaves a cold water tub back to room temperature helps relieve the muscles much better than any heating devices.

The tub can house more people than other therapies to have optimal care for athletes. The ColdTub is designed like a hot tub, but with cold or ice water for therapy uses.
