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. 


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. 


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.

Refer to the size-chart for measurements.

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. 



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. 


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. 


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. 


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.

Cute little box that packs a cold punch

I've been very satisfied with both the product and the service. Before I ordered, I called and had a nice conversation which helped me pick out which device I needed for my upcoming hip replacement. It came quickly, was easy to set up, and works well. I find it especially nice at night - I can settle in and have it circulate on my painful hip. (I start with layers of tea towels to keep it from getting too cold for too long and can remove towel layers if I wake up in the night and decide to cool again) The water stays cold for hours. My husband has been an ANGEL throughout the whole pre surgery ordeal, but I was glad to find this machine to both give me relief and give him relief from having to bring me new cooling pads all day.
I had a question about how to empty the water from the cooling pad after use and they got back with instructions pretty promptly, which I appreciate.
The Breg brand was recommended by various websites, but not purchasable on Amazon, (my go to for most things). I was very happy to be able to support an independent dealer, and happy to report that it was a very good experience.


Arrived in a timely manner. Water does not sem to be as cold as that from a different brand. But very quiet and easily takes frozen water bottles as the source of cooling rather than ice.

Shoulder pad works great

polar care cube

Had a knee replacement & the ice cube was recommended by friends. Instead of using ice cubes in the water, I used frozen 16 oz bottles of water. 4 of them fit perfectly in in the cube & kept the water cold for 4-6 hours. then just had to take out the bottles & put new frozen ones in.. no messing with ice cubes. I froze 12 bottles of water so I always had frozen bottles ready. the cube is quiet, don't even hear it at night. when changing the bottles, I unplug it so the hose doesnt' leak. very pleased with the care cube & have recommended it to friends.
