How To Use The Breg Cube Multi Use XL Pad for Shoulder Application

Recently, Steve and Michelle from My Cold Therapy took us through a training on how to apply the Multi Use XL Pad for Shoulder for the Breg Polar Care Cube, offering invaluable insights for anyone looking to alleviate pain and swelling through cold therapy. Whether you're recovering from surgery, an injury, or simply winding down after an intense weekend of activities, understanding the correct use of cold therapy devices can significantly enhance your recovery process.


Step-by-Step Guide to Applying Breg Polar Care Cube Pads

Steve, from My Cold Therapy, emphasizes the importance of using cold therapy correctly to maximize its benefits. The process begins with ensuring you have the right pad for your needs, identifiable by the part number listed on the pad's label. It's crucial to note that once the sealed bag of the pad is opened, it cannot be returned, underscoring the importance of verifying the product before use.

Important Considerations Before Use

Before diving into the application process, there are several key points to consider:

  • Compatibility: Ensure the pad's connectors match your system, as the Cube and Kodiak systems have different connectors.
  • Skin Protection: Direct contact with the cold pad can lead to skin damage or frostbite. To prevent this, it's advised to use a sterile pad, a thin towel, or a T-shirt as a barrier between your skin and the cold pad.
  • Usage Protocol: The recommended usage is a cycle of 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. Always consult with your healthcare provider for personalized advice.

Applying the Pad

Michelle demonstrates the application process, starting with opening the sealed package and preparing the sterile dressing. After removing the tabs from the dressing, it's attached to the pad, making it ready for application to the affected area. For those with a smaller frame, the Multi Use XL Pad for Shoulder is an excellent option, ensuring a snug and effective fit.

Ensuring a Secure Connection

Once the pad is in place, the next step is to connect the hose from the pad to the cooler, ensuring the connection is secure by listening for a click. This simple yet crucial step guarantees that the cold therapy system will function correctly, providing the much-needed relief.

Enhancing Your Cold Therapy Experience

Steve shares a valuable tip to simplify the cold therapy process: using freeze bags. These bags, stored in the cooler and rotated from the fridge, eliminate the constant need for ice, making the therapy more manageable, especially for individuals managing the treatment on their own.
