ECB Spa solution is maintained between 2
and 4 °c (35 f), to minimise heat and inflammation. This
provides analgesic pain management as well as inhibiting
enzyme degeneration of tendons post injury.
The ECB salt solution acts as a hypertonic
poultice as well as having a natural healing effect on wounds.
Water density increases with salt concentration, which in turn
increases pressure to aid fluid and waste dispersal.
Water aeration has a massaging effect on
the leg and increases the dissolved oxygen content of the spa
The depth of the water is proportional to
the pressure exerted on the leg which aids fluid and waste
dispersal; this can be varied according to position and
severity of injury.
With water hygiene levels continually being
maintained with a combination of fine filtration,
chlorination, cold water and salt, the ECB Spa allows
thousands of successive treatments. These same factors not
only prevent further micro-biological infections but actually
help treat any pre-existing conditions.
Water at temperatures below 6 °c (48
f) has a higher ability to carry oxygen and with the ECB
solution also being aerated, the oxygen content is increased
dramatically. It is believed that the Spa has similar effects
on internal leg injuries to the use of hyperbaric chambers in
humans; and with topical wounds, re-oxygenation allows
phagocytosis and other natural defence mechanisms to intensify
