Technicians prepare a patient for cryopreservation Cryonics (from Greek κρύος kryos- meaning icy cold ) is the low-temperature preservation of humans and animals who cannot be sustained by contemporary medicine, with the hope that healing and resuscitation may be possible in the future. Cryonics is not cryogenics . [ 1 ] Cryopreservation of people or large animals is not reversible with current technology. The stated rationale for cryonics is that people who are considered dead by current legal or medical definitions may not necessarily be dead according to the more stringent information-theoretic definition of death .

[ 3 ] The future repair technologies assumed by cryonics are still hypothetical and not widely known or recognized.
