THE BREG POLAR CARE CUBE - OVERVIEW

Did you know that over one million orthopedic surgeries are performed every year? Unfortunately, even after these surgeries, the pain doesn’t always go away. Indeed, orthopedic trauma in any form can cause lasting discomfort in the form of fluid buildup, muscle spasms, and swelling.

There are many different ways of managing this pain. However, one of the more effective methods is a cold therapy machine. These machines utilize both ice and compression to bring lasting relief. In particular, the Breg Polar Care Cube is one of the more popular home therapy devices on the market.

So, does this cold therapy machine live up to the hype? Or is it not for everyone? In this review, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about the device. That way, you can decide whether or not it’s right for you. 

Benefits of Using the Polar Care Cube

With a classic cooler design, easy refill indicators and self-priming, plug n’ play operation, the Polar Care Cube could not be easier to use.

The Breg Polar Care Cube Cold Therapy System is simple and reliable for at-home cold therapy sessions.

Breg’s unique WrapOn Polar Pads feature elastic straps that conveniently wrap around the joint and affix to the pad, eliminating the need for foam or ace wraps.

With the addition of ice and water, patients will enjoy 6-8 hours of effortless cold therapy. Useful for pre-and post-op rehabilitation and recovery. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Breg Polar Care Cube works by filling a cooler with ice and water. Then, a hose circulates that ice water through a pad that’s attached to your body. This can provide motorized cold treatment for roughly eight hours. Every Breg Polar Care Cube typically comes with both a cooler and wrap-on pad that can be strapped to a certain part of the body.

The pads come with elastic straps to secure them to your body. The specific part of the body depends on which type and size wrap-on you get with your product. We’ll go over these different pads in more detail in the accessories section. So, Breg Polar Care Cube may also only come with the cooler itself. In addition to the product, you will also receive and transformer power supply. 

ADDITIONAL BREG POLAR CARE CUBE ACCESSORIES 

Typically, the Breg Polar Care Cube is used around the knee. However, what if you experience pain or inflammation around another part of your body? The good news is that you can buy a variety of accessories in the form of different pads.

These allow you to use the device where you need it. What’s more, they come in different sizes, so the strap will fit perfectly.

In addition to these pads, you can also purchase a “Y’ pad connector to use two pads at once. Or, if you lose your power cord you can also buy a replacement. If you want to explore all of the Breg Polar Care Cube accessories, then check out our inventory. 

Breg’s unique WrapOn Polar Pads feature elastic straps that conveniently wrap around the joint and affix to the pad, eliminating the need for foam or ace wraps. WrapOn pads are compatible with the Polar Care Cube, Polar Care Glacier and the Polar Care Cub only.

HOW DO YOU USE THE BREG POLAR CARE CUBE?

To use the Breg Polar Care Cube you should begin by removing the lid. Then, add the cold water to the machine first, filling it to the waterline. Once the water is in, you can add the ice up to the ice line. Then, put the lid back on and keep the machine in an upright position. Now, it’s time to connect the main unit to the pads.

You can do this by pushing down on the two metal tabs. Then, when the tabs pop up, slide the connectors together. Once the pad is secured to your body, you can turn the machine on.

Simply plug the power supply into the wall — the machine will start automatically. Once you’re done using it, you can unplug the power supply to stop the machine. If you want a full guide on how to use the Breg Polar Care Cube, then you can read through the entireinstruction manual here. 

FAQ

HOW LONG SHOULD YOU USE THE BREG POLAR CARE CUBE?

You should use the Breg Polar Care Cube for around thirty minutes. If the pain continues, then you can try using it for longer periods. However, you should lift the pad and check your skin every hour or so to make sure that there is no nerve damage. 

HOW DO YOU DRAIN THE BREG POLAR CARE CUBE?

You can drain the Breg Polar Care Cube by holding the pad upright. Then, point the hose toward the area where you want it to drain. Slowly, depress the black plunger. The pad should drain completely. 

HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN THE BREG POLAR CARE CUBE?

If you want to get the most of your Breg Polar Care Cube’s lifespan, then it’s important to clean and maintain it. You can do this by emptying the machine after use. Then, get a clean cloth.

Use this to completely dry the Breg Polar Care Cube after using it. Now and then you should also clean out the pump and tubes. You can do this by running warm water and mild detergent through them few weeks, or more if you use the product often. 

ARE THERE ANY DRAWBACKS TO USING THE BREG POLAR CARE CUBE?

Unfortunately, the Breg Polar Care Cube isn’t perfect. Some users complain that the pump on the device gets too noisy after using it for a while. Others disliked the rubber material sheathing the hose. If used too roughly this material can come loose and cause leaks.

Like any cold therapy machine, there’s also the risk of frostbite. This occurs when you leave the machine on for too long without checking it. Having a barrier is not only recommended it is a must when using any cold therapy device. As such, you will need to be constantly vigilant for nerve damage when you’re using the Breg Polar Care Cube.

Great Product

Works great. Highly recommended.

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.
