Our Story
The Beginning /
’10
In 2010, Hyperice sets out to create the world’s first high performance portable ice compression device.

January

Hyperice brings together a cutting edge design with the benefits of cryotherapy and compression, enabling both the reduction of swelling and the healing of tissues. The signature ice compression product line is a revolutionary two-part system, which harnesses the power of real ice and the anti-inflammatory properties of compression to provide preventative treatment, accelerate injury recovery, and enhance muscle and joint performance.

Hyperice’s patented system is composed of two elements, that when combined, provide optimal antimicrobial ultra-thin Ice Cell which immediately transfers the cold component of the ice to the zone being treated. An “Air-Release Valve” on the Ice Cell cap removes air pockets, delivering precise and uniform icing.
