The cost of a cryotherapy chamber is the single most asked question, and for good reason. Cryotherapy chamber costs range from $10,000 (used) to over $100,000 (new). The differences between the price ranges is enormous. Knowing what you need for your business can save you thousands of dollars in the long run.
How Much Should A Cryotherapy Chamber Cost?
Cryotherapy chambers are upwards of $40,000 and more for a brand new unit. Top of the line chambers are often over $60,000 and come with professional installation and training. This is often a major purchase for a small business owner, who must achieve a full ROI before a serious profit is made. For example, a $50,000 investment in a chamber will require about 4 sessions per day—seven days per week—for an entire year to achieve a full return on investment. Electric-powered chambers often cost $100,000 or more, and require serious permit-drawing construction. Ultimately your choice of chamber should include the following:
- Ability to run multiple sessions per day – no “dry out” time
- Lowest nitrogen consumption possible – such as the XR
- No electric lifts – these inevitably break over time, costing you more money
Are Electric Chambers Worth The Cost?
Electric cryotherapy chambers are popular, and very expensive. The big drawback is that they do not get as cold as nitrogen chambers. The appeal about electric cryotherapy chambers is that multiple people can go in at once. This appeals to large sports teams, universities, and big-box gyms. The downside is that small business owners are often unable to afford an electric chamber. For someone to invest twice the amount in an electric chamber they will need twice the time to achieve an ROI. For small shops this is not practical as most cryo sessions are one-at-a-time type of services.
What Is The Cold Difference?
Both types of cryotherapy chambers get very cold, but nitrogen chambers are significantly colder. Electrics use a type of refrigeration and can only get about -150°F cold. This is cold, but the cryogenic environment only exists at -160°F, and this is why nitrogen chambers were invented: to put customers into a truly cryogenic chamber to receive the greatest benefits. Sometimes people are misled to believe that a person must have their head in the cold for a “vagus nerve reaction” or “illusion of hypothermia,” but that is simply not the case. Cryotherapy is encountered in both methods, although nitrogen-powered machines are more efficient, less expensive, and don’t require any construction for installation.
