Product Feature: The Operator-Friendly °CRYO Penguin™
When it comes to cryotherapy, you want a system that accounts for the needs of both the operator and the client. That’s the goal, anyway. While many machines feature elaborate safety systems and powerful functionality, some can be overly complex, cumbersome, awkward and uncomfortable for the operator—the person who is interacting with the machine for hours every day.
Today, our independent team is taking a closer look at one product that claims to strike a balance between what clients want and what operators need: The °CRYO Penguin™. In this short feature, we break down the product’s key features, benefits and drawbacks, helping you make an informed decision before you invest.

What We Like About the °CRYO Penguin™
It emphasizes operator comfort. Since operators are the ones who use cryotherapy machines the most, it’s refreshing to see a system designed with your comfort and convenience in mind.
Some of the device’s quality-of-life touches are fairly straightforward, such as the ergonomic handle—which, for anyone who has suffered from stiff joints at the end of a long day, is a key selling point. Other features are more innovative. When administering cryotherapy, the °CRYO Penguin™ shines an LED light on the patient’s skin, helping you target specific areas with pinpoint accuracy and alerting you if the device gets too close to the patient’s skin. The interface—which is highly intuitive—allows you to choose between different pre-programmed modes, depending on the nature and location of the treatment you’re administering. These settings can be changed with quick-access controls on the handle, so you can make adjustments on the fly.
It doesn’t compromise on safety. While localized cryotherapy is very safe, when properly administered, the °CRYO Penguin™ goes a step further with two additional safety features: First, the LED light we mentioned above: In addition to helping the provider target specific areas, this feature measures the distance between the device and the surface of the patient’s skin, ensuring that you maintain the recommended distance. In addition, a sensor delivers real-time readings of the temperature of the client’s skin, so you can ensure that they are receiving safe, optimal treatment.
Seem like overkill? We don’t think so. Some clients have reservations about nitrogen-based cryotherapy, in general, and this device’s robust safety features will bring peace of mind to providers and clients alike.
It’s highly compact. As the name suggests, the °CRYO Penguin™ is small, even by the standards of localized machines. This is good news for any business concerned with floorspace.
It has the ‘cool factor.’ Perhaps despite its cute name, the sleek design and LED-guided features of the °CRYO Penguin™ give it a high-end, futuristic feel. As anyone in the health and beauty industry knows, presentation is important to clients, and that’s another area where this system excels.
A Few Things to Keep in Mind
Localized or full-body? The °CRYO Penguin™ is designed for localized cryotherapy, meaning that it targets specific areas. If you want to deliver a full-body experience, take a look at cryotherapy chambers and saunas.
Nitrogen supply. This system uses nitrogen to deliver cool air to your patient’s skin. That means you’ll either need a nitrogen supplier—we can help you find the right one—or, depending on your usage, produce your own supply using a generator. Learn more about nitrogen generators here.
