COOLIEF* Cooled RF is the only currently known thermal radiofrequency system using water-cooled technology to deactivate pain-causing sensory nerves. Safely delivering more RF energy through water-cooled electrodes creates large-volume, spherically-shaped lesions that distally-project 45% beyond the probe’s tip to enable angle independence of the probe.
Clinically proven to provide up to 24 months of pain relief, improved physical functionality and reduced drug utilization,1,5 COOLIEF* is reshaping thermal radiofrequency.
Cooled RF Products
A revolution in radiofrequency, Cooled RF technology creates large volume, spherical nerve and disc lesions to treat chronic pain, giving physicians the power of targeted treatment, and patients the quality of life they deserve.
