  • Patent number: 4149529
    Abstract: A portable apparatus for controllably cooling and variably, intermittently applying pressure to a portion of a body part of a mammalian organism comprising a liquid supply and control unit having means to store, circulate, cool, agitate, and pressurize a fluid and means to communicate via fluid communication means to a hydraulic appliance having a unitary body, with an unrestricted inlet port to receive the fluid, and an outlet port in association with a fluid flow retardation means secured to the interior surface of the outlet port. The reservoir in the supply unit is arranged with a heat exchanger immersed in the liquid and agitating means to avoid thermal stratification of the liquid. The reservoir is mounted in the supply unit with sufficient support to sustain the weight of a human and has an open top of sufficient dimensions to receive a human limb whereby the reservoir can be employed as a whirlpool bath. A cover is provided for the open top when the reservoir is not used as a whirlpool bath.
