It is a nice, quiet machine. At this point I have not had any problems with the machine, except an obvious one that I overlooked when purchasing. The pump is in the lid and protrudes down into the bucket where the ice and water go. This makes it a little more difficult to use frozen water bottles like you can with other machines, if you have access to massive amounts of ice this won't be a problem. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
The iceman machine was recommended to me by numerous people prior to my knee replacement. Since my replacement I have been using it continuously and found it extremely beneficial. I would highly recommend it to anyone having a replacement done
I've been using the Wave Cold therapy machine and have found it very useful and easy to use. My ankle is also messed up and I'm going to check on getting a ankle piece.
I ordered the brace for my granddaughter by recommendation of her physical therapist. She has Patellar Tracking Disorder. I must say she could tell a major difference in her knee after the first time wearing it.
I would highly recommend this brace.
cubes are okay save on ice but one cracked and they are too large for iceman but do work.
excellent for post op knee replacement
We measured both knees and then continued to get the next size up and they were both still too small.
First time user of cold therapy. I found this product easy to use. The coldness lasted for several hours the shortest was 8 hours for me, but I noticed that I had not filled it all the way to the line. The pad fit very well and was comfortable. Would have liked an on and off button/switch.
They are great but only one at a time fits into the Beth Polar Care Wave. With that said they allow for cold water for a long period of time.
I use something similar at physical therapy. This is the perfect home version. Wish I had it day 1 after I broke my ankle. It’s awesome.
Even though the brace I ordered was not right for me my return was easy. Customer service reps were helpful.
The pad is so large that the machine has a difficult time keeping it all cold. Of course it could be due to the age of the machine. I used this with knee pad and it worked great.
I would recommend waiting until your product is delivered before requesting feedback on how much I like it. UPS tracker states a label has been made, after 12 days maybe more than a label would be nice. Granted, I didn't pay for expedited shipping but still.
Slow shipping. I guess the week long shipping with overnight paid would've been a better option.
Thanks for the review. Looks like UPS lost your package. We will ship another one to you today (4/28) via FedEx. Thanks for letting us know that the order did not make it to you.
Husband has peripheral neuropathy and has to wear toe spacers. The inserts seem to work as intended, does not complain of foot pain any longer. Can't believe we were so lucky; it was easy though pricey.
These are very well made. However I’m a little concerned about Don-Joy’s sizing. I ordered and received a size B. I wear a women’s 8, and only have a mildly tall arch. These were recommended by my orthopedic surgeon.
These inserts are long, which is great for being able to trim them. HOWEVER, The positioning of where the foot needs to sit is also a bit long, and my being at the ‘max’ recommended shoe size for the size I ordered, the placement should NOT be too long.
Consider sizing down if you’re near the edge of a size, or make sure you’re able to return them and do NOT trim them until you stand on them.
These sit very bulky and wide in a shoe. They are straining to stretch out the width of my hiking shoes at the moment.
I wonder if they use the same base for both standard and wide feet.
This is the Absolute Best!
This replaces the same brace that I have been pleased with.
Had knee replacement. This cooler really helped with the pain!! Don't think I could have stood it without this Cold Therapy!!! I highly recommend it!!
I have had chronic neck issues. Pinched nerve I receive therapy once a month. This is great for in between.
Love this machine! Arrived within a week. Easy to use. We have been using frozen water bottles to keep the water cold, but there are many options. I can honestly say I don't know how I would have made it through my knee replacement surgery without it, especially because I just can't use the stronger drugs. I am two weeks out and only using an OTC pain killer and the Breg. My husband had access to a Game Ready for his knee replacement surgery which was great, but for the difference in price this is SO WORTH IT!
Thank you for my cord now I can use my Polar cube.
This is great, it's just what I needed! The replacement pad was compatible with my polar cube and helped immensely.
Great product. My son won’t wear any other knee brace.
Bought this for my husband who just had a hip replacement. It works really well and the hip pad attachment is perfect. Borrowed one similar to this from a friend when I had shoulder surgery and the Kodiak is far better.
