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 reliefimproved physical functionality and reduced drug utilization,1,5 COOLIEF* is reshaping thermal radiofrequency.
