Our Partnerships

You can only do so much on your own. That is why we are constantly looking for interesting collaborative projects that allow us to make optimal use of each other’s strengths. With our carefully selected collaborations, we provide you with full stack solutions, in coordination with our trusted partners.

Our Affiliates

We have created a few great courses but our affiliates help us to spread the word.

 

Our affiliates are critical to us. By reaching out to professionals worldwide, they create awareness about ProCcare and our CustoRec solutions. Therefore, we are selective in choosing our affiliates. They should understand and value our products, and work or have a secure connection with utilizing cold and heat in practice.

The ProCcare Method
Step 1
Systematic literature search.
For each domain (whole-body cryo, water immersion, and local cold and heat), we systematically searched the sports- medicine literature databases and identified all relevant studies. This was done based on the right combination of search terms, screening for the inclusion criteria and assessment of quality via applying the Pedro scale.
Step 2
Critical appraisal
We extract the appropriate research findings, like athletes and patients benefits, indications for usage aligned with proper protocol settings, factors influencing effectiveness and contraindications to optimize safety.
Step 3
Best Practice Protocols
We developed basic protocols within each domain, for each application, for each indication, in each situation. Intensity, duration, frequency, and timing were defined, taking basic thermal principles, experience for key opinion leaders and generic elements (inslope, outslope, temperature modulations) into account
Step 4
Personalization
The effect of personal parameters like gender, body composition and fitness, in each basic protocol is counterbalanced by applying an algorithm based upon the well-validated Fiala Perceived Comfort (FPC) model (Fiala and colleagues, 1999). Resulting in customized protocols for each athlete.
Step 5
Validation and development
We are continuously validating and developing our method with our research partners to optimize its use in practice ensuring a safe and standardized solution.
