How To Use The Back Pad For The Breg Polar Care Cube: A Step-By-Step Guide

Recently, Steve and Michelle conducted a training session that shed light on the effective use of the Back Pad for the Breg Polar Care Cube, a device renowned for its cold therapy benefits. This guide is designed to walk you through the process, ensuring you harness the full potential of this therapeutic tool to alleviate pain and swelling, whether it's post-surgery, post-injury, or just the aftermath of an active day.


Understanding Cold Therapy

Cold therapy stands out as a remarkable method for mitigating pain and reducing swelling. It's a go-to solution for many, from individuals recovering from surgical procedures to those who've had an intense day of physical activity. The key to maximizing the benefits of cold therapy lies in the proper use of devices like the Breg Polar Care Cube.

Setting Up Your Breg Polar Care Cube

Steve kicks off the training by emphasizing the importance of verifying the pad and part number, which can be found on the white label at the front right corner of the pad. It's crucial to note that once the sealed bag of the pad is opened, it cannot be returned. The package includes a flyer that illustrates the different connectors for the Cube and Kodiak systems, highlighting the need to ensure compatibility with your device.

Skin Safety Measures

A critical aspect of using the Breg Polar Care Cube is skin protection. Michelle points out that the cold pad should never be placed directly on the skin to avoid potential damage or frostbite. The universal protocol recommends a 20-minute on, 20-minute off approach to cold therapy. Additionally, consulting with a healthcare provider for personalized instructions is always advised.

To safeguard your skin, sterile dressings are available for purchase, compatible with both the Cube and Kodiak back pads. Alternatively, a thin towel or T-shirt can serve as a protective layer between your skin and the pad.

Applying the Back Pad

The application process is straightforward. With the sterile dressing in place, center the back pad and secure it with the provided strap, using the additional strap if an extension is needed. Connecting the hose from the pad to the cooler is a critical step, ensuring a secure connection by listening for a 'click' sound.

Enhancing Your Cold Therapy Experience

Steve shares a valuable tip to enhance the cold therapy experience: the use of freeze bags. These bags, available in packs of twelve, can be alternated between the cooler and the fridge, eliminating the constant need for ice and ensuring a consistent cold supply.

This training by Steve and Michelle offers a comprehensive guide to using the Back Pad for the Breg Polar Care Cube effectively.
