Q. What is iCool ?

A. iCool is a company created 15 years ago to answer to the needs of athletes in sports recovery. In  2004, the Australian team at that year’s Olympic Games quietly unveiled their new secret weapon, 6 of the world’s first ever completely mobile fully automatic ice bath systems with fast chilling and accurate temperature control, designed in a collaboration between leading sports medicine scientists at the prestigious Australian Institute of Sport and a small team of micro refrigeration experts at a new sporting technology company named iCool Sport. Since then, we’ve been manufacturing cooling and heating machines, inflatable baths & any size pools & spa baths in large numbers and improving our products every year with the latest technology. Our products have been used in the last 3 Olympic Games, the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Asian Games, Tour de France and most of the world’s leading sporting events.

Q. What is the recommended time to stay in an ice bath?

A. Most of the world’s leading experts recommend temperatures between15 to 25 minutes.

Q. What is the recommended water temperature?

A. Most of the world’s leading experts in ice bath recovery and contrast recovery therapy are now recommending slightly higher temperatures between 8 and 12 degrees but for up to 25 minutesYou should not use lower temperatures until you have become well accustomed to no less than 8ºC and especially not without close supervision as lower temperatures can be dangerous and lead to hypothermia unless you have worked with experts to reach that stage safely. Become familiar with your own limits and  follow the advice of coaches, doctors and physiotherapists to get the biggest health benefits from your sessions.

Q. Can I immerse my whole body in the ice bath ?

A. To start out, you may want to first expose your feet and lower legs. As you get comfortable you can move toward your chest. However we do not recommend immersing your head.

Q. What are the common mistake in the use of ice baths?

A. Don’t panic and don’t breath too quickly with quick short breaths. Frequently athletes find themselves panicking and taking quick, short breaths. This reduces the circulation of air moving around the body, restricting the benefits of the ice bath. Focusing on taking deep, controlled breaths and maintaining long slow and solid inhales and exhales as the experts recommend, this will assist you to get the most out of your recovery sessions and the maximum health, fitness  and immunity benefits.

Q. What is the science behind the ice baths ?

A. During a training session, your muscles burn fuel and that creates a build-up of toxic waste products and lactic acids. Your body eliminates these waste products naturally over a day or two, but Immersion in chilled water can do the same in a very much shorter time. The sudden cold sets off a reaction in the limbic (ancient) area in the base of your brain that is programmed to respond to such dramatic external events, in this case it senses that you might be freezing dangerous and immediately begins an automatic process to restore your bodies core temperature to safe levels. It does this mostly by withdrawing most of the blood from your skin and outer soft tissue and muscles in to the core of your body. The blood must pass through your liver, kidneys and other organs that each do their job of removing these dangerous toxins and waste products. This quickly eliminates most of the soreness and help torn muscles to rebuild much faster with fresh oxygenated blood flow and you are ready for your next athletic session much more quickly. In effect the sudden cold water tricks your body in to an ancient survival mode because it “believes” you are in danger of freezing. Of course you are actually quite safe, but the effect on your body of quickly and completely flushing the waste products from your blood is extremely beneficial.

One of the most popular benefits of regular ice baths and the more most often reported by athletes , is far better sleep patterns and a much calmer mental state. This has been extensively documented. 

Q. When should I take an ice bath ?

A. Ideally, after every training session. The earliest you get in after a workout or competition, the better effects it’ll have. If you wait too long, some of the healing processes may have already begun and the benefits of the ice bath will be lower.

Q. What are the iCool pools made of ?

They are fiberglass pools designed & manufactured in Australia.
