company's accelerated recovery device is a significantly more superior solution to ice packs,
cold wraps and elastic bandages.
The Game Ready System employs patented
technology originally developed for NASA by the company's founder. The device
simultaneously delivers cold therapy and intermittent compression to accelerate
the body's natural healing process, allowing athletes and active people to
recover from sports injuries much faster. Game Ready technology has been adapted
and refined by scientists, trainers and doctors, and is said by medical
professionals to be the most effective soft tissue injury treatment system
available in the marketplace today. In fact,
athletic trainers for numerous
professional sports teams using the Game Ready device report athlete's injury
recoveries are often half the normal injury recovery and rehabilitation time.
Funk Ventures Capital Partners started supporting Game Ready in 2004 and has since
participated in the company's Series F and Series G rounds.
