Revolutionizing injury recovery
RecoverX is transforming the way people recover from injuries. The company’s first product, Element, is the world’s first smartphone-controlled cold and heat pack for athletic and medical recovery. Element optimizes recovery by regulating the precise temperature and time for both cold (50-60°F) and heat (104-113°F) therapies. It operates on a rechargeable battery, allowing users the ability to recover anytime and anywhere. Additionally, the device tracks user data, such as frequency of use and therapy selection, desired by physical therapists and athletic trainers, to improve client injury evaluations and rehabilitation strategies. RecoverX began beta testing with the UCSF Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences, Stanford Athletic Department, San Francisco 49ers, and the San Jose Earthquakes in October of 2016.
