The Squid Compression System Provides Relief and Recovery through Sequential Intermittent Compression
With Squid professional, you'll immediately feel the benefits of sequential intermittent compression. While Squid drives cold deep into the joints and muscles, the unique multi-chambered design of our wraps effectively reduce pain and swelling in only 15 minutes.
Squid’s unique design allows for tremendous relief from muscle and joint pain, and can help speed up injury and performance recovery times. It's quiet and portable system allows for convenient use.
The Squid Compression System Pump is designed for a more durable and long lasting use that is good for up to 50 uses on one full charge.
Benefits and Uses of the Squid Cold Compression Recovery System
Muscle & Joint Relief
Squid is designed to provide tremendous relief from muscle and joint pain.
This may allow users to reduce dependency on pain medication, perform everyday tasks that were previously painful, and enjoy walking, running, skiing, playing tennis, golf and other sports again.
Squid revolutionizes injury recovery by combining sequential intermittent compression with cold treatment to provide maximum results.
It drives the cold treatment deep into the tissue, reducing swelling and directing fluids away from the treated area towards the heart. Swelling is reduced, thereby improving blood flow to the injured tissue and delivering much needed nutrients and oxygen.
Squid's patent pending sequential intermittent compression assists many world-class athletes in post-workout and post-performance recovery.
It can be used in many ways: from elbow wraps for tendonitis, to shoulder wraps for pitchers, to leg wraps for runners and soccer players.
It is designed to speed up performance recovery by helping remove lactic acid and other metabolites from muscles.

What's Included with the Squid Cold Compression Recovery System?
The Squid Pump
The portable and rechargeable Squid Pump provides intermittent air pressure to the air bladders within the wraps to create sequential intermittent compression. The inflation/deflation cycle times are automatically programmed to create the most effective treatment at any level of compression during the 15 minute treatment time.
For user comfort, the Squid Pump is programmed with 4 different compression modes, which have different peak pressure levels and inflation/deflation cycles. The pump's durable outside makes it easy for travel and cleaning without fear of damage.
- Small size and lightweight
- Rechargeable battery
- Good for up to 50 uses on one full charge
- Offers 4 levels of compression
Squid Wrap of Your Choice
The ergonomically designed Squid Wraps provide sequential intermittent compression through multi-chambered air bladders within the wrap. This directs edema/swelling away from the affected area and towards the heart.
Sequential intermittent compression helps increase blood circulation and tissue oxygenation, which aids in the recovery process.
Squid Wraps are made from durable, easy to clean, anti-bacterial materials. The wrap is available in six different configurations, each designed for a specific part of the body.
- Sequential Intermittent Compression
- Ergonomically Designed
- Directs edema away from the injury and towards the heart
- Increases circulation and tissue oxygenation
- Durable, easy to clean, anti-bacterial materials
Squid Gel Pack
Squid Gel Packs use a proprietary gel formula that allows the gel pack to maintain its shape. The gel pack is able to conform specifically to a treatment area for maximum results.
Our gel pack freezes at a lower temperature than water, which allows for a shorter, more effective treatment than other methods. With Squid Gel Packs, there is no melting or mess, so clean-up from a treatment is a breeze.
- Proprietary gel formula
- Gel freezes colder than water
- Doesn't melt or make a mess
- Conforms to a treatment area for maximum results
- Easy to clean materials
A Portable and Convenient Recovery Tool for Targeted Treatments
With the Squid Compression System, you have full control on your recovery. Control your treatment with four pre-programmed settings to enjoy comfortable and effective compression therapy.
Want more or less compression? Simply press pause, adjust the compression level and resume your treatment. Choose from six different cold compression therapy options depending on your specific needs.
All Squid systems include the selected one Squid wrap, including the cold gel pack and the portable pump with connector tube and charger. For sizing, please refer to our sizing chart in product images at the top of the page.
This system is scientifically designed to treat ankle pain, including pain from arthritis or tendonitis. Squid Pro Ankle System delivers intermittent sequential cold compression therapy starting at the base of the ankle, working up to the calf. This wrap fits either ankle.
This system is scientifically designed to treat back pain, including pain from arthritis or tendonitis. Squid Pro Back System delivers intermittent sequential cold compression therapy to the areas that need it most including the lower back and oblique muscles. One size fits most.
This system is scientifically designed to treat elbow pain, including pain from arthritis or tendonitis. Squid Pro Elbow System delivers intermittent sequential cold compression therapy to the areas that need it most. One size fits most. This wrap fits either elbow.
This system is scientifically designed to treat knee and leg pain, including pain from arthritis or tendonitis. Squid Pro Leg/Knee delivers intermittent sequential cold compression therapy to the areas that need it most including the knee, calf, quadriceps and hamstring. This wrap fits either leg.
Wraps and gel packs are available in regular and large sizes.
This system is scientifically designed to treat shoulder pain, including pain from arthritis or tendonitis. Squid Pro delivers cold compression* therapy to the areas that need it most. Wraps are available for both left and right shoulders. Wraps and gel packs are available in regular and large sizes.
*This system does not use intermittent sequential compression due to the shoulder’s proximity to the heart. Because sequential compression is used to push swelling away from the extremities and towards the heart, sequential compression is not needed with the Squid Pro shoulder pain treatment system.
This system is scientifically designed to treat wrist pain, including pain from arthritis or tendonitis. Squid Wrist System delivers intermittent sequential cold compression therapy from the wrist and palm through to the joint and mid arm. One size fits most. This wrap fits either wrist.

How is Squid Pro Cold and Compression Recovery System different from other cold therapies?
Squid is the only system available that combines intermittent sequential compression with cold therapy. Regular cold gel packs and ice water circulators are less effective since the vascular blood vessels system located under the skin layer carries the cold away from the treated site, resulting in superficial cold treatment and less penetration into muscles ligaments and bones where it is mostly needed.
In order to drive cold deep into the tissue Squid applies intermittent sequential compression, temporarily reducing venues blood flow and allowing the cold to penetrate through the skin deep into the muscles ligaments and bones.
In addition, the Squid gel pack can be frozen to 0° F while maintaining its elasticity thereby delivering significantly lower temperature compared to ice water circulators resulting in a significantly shorter treatment.
How Does the Squid Pro Cold & Compression Recovery System Work?
Squid operates by combining sequential compression with cold therapy. Each Squid wrap was uniquely developed for a specific body part with a sequential compression bladder* designed to direct swelling away from the treated body part while driving cold deep into the tissue.
The combination of directional sequential compression and deep penetrating cold may help in reducing edema and pain while allowing better blood circulation in the treated area and reducing inflammation.
For athletes Squid is an excellent recovery tool providing high efficacy cold therapy while driving metabolites such as lactic acid away from the treated muscle, increasing local circulation and getting you ready faster for more action!
The sequential compression and cold work together to remove lactic acid and drive the cold deep into the treated muscle or joint.
* Except for the Shoulder Wrap, which does not benefit from sequential compression.
