Breg Polar Care Wave and VPulse: How are they alike and how are they different?

Both the Breg Polar Care Wave and Breg VPulse machines are cold therapy with compression therapy systems that use ice water to reduce swelling, pain, and inflammation.

The main difference between the Breg Polar Care Wave and Breg VPulse machines is that the VPulse also provides active compression therapy for DVT prophylaxis .

Active DVT compression therapy uses regular pulses of air to push against the skin, which helps to improve blood flow and reduce swelling. The Polar Care Wave does not provide active DVT compression therapy.

Here is a table summarizing the key differences between the two machines:

Feature Breg Polar Care Wave Breg VPulse
Cold Therapy and Compression Yes Yes
Active DVT compression therapy No Yes
Compression level Adjustable (25 mmHg or 50 mmHg) Adjustable (25 mmHg or 50 mmHg)
Pads Available Universal, Standard Knee, Large Knee, Shoulder, Ankle, Back and Hip Universal, Standard Knee, Large Knee, Shoulder, Ankle, Back and Hip
Weight 4.4 lbs 6.2 lbs
Ice Bottles Not Included Included
Extension Tubing Not Included Included

In general, the Breg VPulse is a more advanced machine than the Breg Polar Care Wave. It offers the added benefit of active DVT compression therapy, which can be more effective at reducing swelling and pain. However, the VPulse is also more expensive.

The best machine for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. If you are looking for a basic cold therapy machine, the Breg Polar Care Wave is a good option. If you are looking for a machine that offers the added benefit of active DVT therapy with cold compression, the Breg VPulse is a better choice.
