Breg ® Polar Care Wave Cold Therapy System


  • The Breg Polar Care Wave is part of the third generation of cold compression system products that deliver cold therapy through anatomic wraps while also providing compression, which has been clinically proven to decrease narcotic use post-operatively.¹ 

    The Polar Care Wave cold therapy system is a motorized cold therapy machine housed in a simple, quiet, and compact unit with various anatomic pads such as knee, hip, shoulder, ankle, universal, and back. Polar Care Wave 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. 

    This is the highest-end cold therapy product on the market in its price category. A comparable system you should google is "Gameready" to best understand the value you are receiving with this cold therapy unit. Gameready is a great device and nearly 10x the cost. The Polar Care Wave delivers a great value for the clinical benefit. 

    If you are a patient having bilateral total knee arthroplasty, consider a y-connector and a second knee pad so you can ice both knees at the same time. 

    The Breg® Polar Care Wave Cold System is intended to treat post-surgical and acute injuries to reduce edema, swelling, and pain where cold and compression are indicated.

It's so so

Wave with foot/ankle brace. The brace is cheaply made and the compression is ok..not great because it's not enough compression and only for a few seconds. The tank is small

Best purchase

My insurance company would not approve the machine after my son had surgery on his broken leg. I found orthobracing and purchased the machine myself. This wonderful little device has made my son's recovery so much easier. My son needed this machine and you guys delivered. I have to admit the shipping took a little longer than I expected but I ordered on a Thursday and without express shipping it took until the following Friday to get the machine. Your online assistant was great and gave me the code for $10 off right away. This has been the best purchase for my son. Thank you.


Don't get any replacement without Purchasing this item 1st . Only 2nd best to game day which is about $3000. Only thing that could be better is if it had time or. But this item is worth every penny every penny. Great products.

Highly recommend this product, as someone who has been through multiple knee surgeries and about to head into a another this is a must buy. If your not sure wether you should just get it or not don’t wait get it! I waited because I wasn’t sure and now that I have it I am super thankful. 10/10 if you ask me.

does the job

an improvement over the basic ice machine because it has compression. best part was being able to speak to a helpful human being on the phone when I had questions.
