The content of most ice packs in common are water, ice cube or chemical compound. It takes time to cool down those packs in the refrigerator for a least an hour or more before we can use them for treatment. It is a limitation and challenge for emergency and continuous cold therapy treatment. Moreover, the inappropriately therapeutic temperature may result in frostbite on skin surface or other adverse effects. In order to improve these problems, a brand new cold therapeutic device by a thermoelectric cooler will be designed. The thermal cooling module for thermoelectric cooler, liquid cyclic system and the cold therapeutic system will be investigated. The experimental result shows the water pack temperature will be decreased from 25℃ to 18℃ in less than 10 minutes in the conditions without with no external thermal load. On the contrary, the result shows the water pack temperature will be decreased from 25℃ to 18℃ in 15 minutes for the conditions with a 5 Watts external thermal load. Finally, the therapeutic system will be integrated with a temperature control system. A brand new cold therapeutic device driven by a thermoelectric cooler will provide much more benefits to our live. Advisor Committee Hong-Sen Kou - advisor
