We thank Inger Sierevelt for her assistance with data analysis. The cryocompression devices were sponsored by Best Medical Recovery systems (Abcoude, The Netherlands) and were returned after the study ended. 'Achmea Zorgverzekeringen' (grant number: Z557) and 'DSW Zorgverzekeringen' (grant identifier: GRAPES) funded the study. The funding covered meetings, IRB application costs and CFCT treatment by nurses only. None of the authors received funding from the study. The sponsors had no involvement in the design, collection, analysis and interpretation of data; the writing of the manuscript; and the decision to submit the manuscript for publication.
