Breg Polar Care Wave Knee Cold Therapy System


  • The Breg Polar Care Wave Knee is part of the third generation of cold compression 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 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. 

    Breg Wave vs Game Ready

    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. 

    Breg Wave Ice Bags

    A very popular and often recommended accessory for the Breg Polar Wave Ice Machine is the ice bags which are extremely helpful because when you are recovering you do not want to be getting up and down going to the freezer to refill your ice machine: huge convenience factor.
