Breg® Polar Care Wave Cold Therapy Pads

Breg® Polar Care Wave Cold Therapy combines motorized cold therapy with active compression in a simple and compact system, making it ideal for facility and home use. Polar Care Wave is easily transported from the hospital, physical therapy clinic or athletic training room to the patient’s home, extending the benefits of cold and compression.

Polar Care Wave is designed to reduce pain and edema to optimize patient recovery. Motorized cold therapy and compression devices, like Polar Care Wave, have also been shown to decrease narcotic use post-operatively.¹ United States Federal Law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a medical professional.

Great machine

Works great. Keeps Ice water cold for at least 12 hours. Definitely not as cold as a ice pad. not sure if it needs to be, but the standard ice pads get much colder.

Fantastic product

I’ve just had total knee replacement surgery and after thorough research decided to buy the Cold therapy system and glad I did..
The product is very easy to use. The ice works really well and has controlled my swelling. I wanted a unit with compression and there are not that many out there, and this one has that option which is really good and I use it all the time. It makes a noise but is not too noisy and doesn’t bother me at all. The ice pack is great, it stays on the knee with the versatile Velcro straps. I read reviews that the Velcro stops sticking after a while but I’ve been using it non stop since 28 July and it’s as good as new. I wouldn’t be without it - definitely worth the investment! Also the customer service was good. I telephoned before I ordered to check if the item was in stock and to get an approximate delivery date so ensure I had it a few days prior to surgery. Some other companies said they had it in stock but didn’t unless you were prepared to pay expedited shipping.

Breg Polar Care Wave with Shoulder Pad

Compression and cold therapy from such a small investment worth every dollar. Has been very helpful for my recovery from major Rotator Cuff surgery. Would advise putting a trash bag in a pillow case as a barrier while you’re protecting the bandages. There is a little water from the plug and shoulder pad. After bandages are removed then straight application to my shoulder with just a shirt as a barrier has been sufficient protection.

Very thankful to have the Breg Polar Wave

Have had Chronic Knee pain and inflammation, this machine has helped greatly in reducing the overall inflammation. I like that it provides the icing an compression to help reduce the inflammation. I also purchased the ankle and back and while we have not used the back yet, my husband has used the ankle pad with the same results. I am hoping it continues to perform and I am likely to get a knee replacements within the next year and hoping to use this machine during recovery.

Ideal for reducing inflammation, post-operation, or through exercise/gardening

We used a similar commercial product in hospital after my wife’s hip replacement surgery and this is great to reduce inflammation and pain using non-medicated product. This means that we did reduce overall pain relief medication. We bought this to continue the great benefits at home, especially as this was recommended by the physiotherapist and orthopaedic nurse.

All items must be in NEW condition to be exchanged (they cannot be used; plastic bag must be sealed for all cold therapy pads). There is no restocking fee but a return shipping fee will apply if OrthoBracing.com is asked to send a return label. Before shipping any product back, you must first obtain an authorization number (RA#) via email at the following address: CS@OrthoBracing.com.

Because cold therapy products come in contact with incisions after orthopedic surgery and use municipal water, we have to make the assumption that once they leave our facility they have been used. We cannot, in good faith, ship this type of merchandise to another patient and have them bear the increased risk of getting an infection. For you as a customer, we want you to know that all cold therapy products coming from our warehouse have not been used by another customer in any manner.

The above products are available for warranty replacement, if defective, only. If you have a question about the return eligibility of a particular product please contact customer service at cs@orthobracing.com .

We reserve the right to limit multiple requests for warranty replacement on products that are deemed damaged by customer misuse, abuse, or failure to properly maintain the equipment to manufacturers' specifications.
