Fill a bag with ice, freeze gel packs, or let a machine do all the therapeutic work when your knee is swollen or you're rehabbing a slipped disc? I vote machine. Ossur's Cold Rush device is essentially a small cooler with a motor, tubing, and a line of body part-specific pads that deliver continuous cold therapy to whatever has you aching, laid up, and ticked off.

Fill its chest with ice and water and Ossur says the Cold Rush will output a constant stream of chill and compression to help soothe and reduce pain and swelling, and return the ailing to their normal activities faster. The device's cooling motor is the same as those used in mobile air conditioners and refrigerators. At 4.6 pounds it is small enough to tote around the house or in the car, as well as quiet enough during use (30 decibels) to take to bed without disrupting your or your partner's sleep.

Both athletes dealing with chronic issues or particularly grueling days, and patients looking to address post-operative pain and swelling can use Cold Rush as a therapy system. Separate, ergonomic Cold Rush pads have been designed to provide up to 6 hours of continuous cooling to the hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, back, or hand areas.

The Ossur Cold Rush Ice Therapy Machine is a top Dude Gift for an Athlete pick.
