Breg® 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. Polar Care Wave encourages natural healing, reducing the need for narcotic pain medications.

Breg® Polar Care Wave is designed to reduce pain and edema to optimize patient recovery. Motorized cold therapy and compression devices, like Polar Care Wave, have also been shown to decrease narcotic use post-operatively.¹ United States Federal Law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a medical professional.

The Breg® Polar Care Wave System is intended to treat post-surgical and acute injuries to reduce edema, swelling, and pain where cold and compression are indicated. It is intended to be used by or on the order of licensed healthcare professionals in hospitals, outpatient clinics, athletic training settings, or home settings.

AMAZING PRODUCT!!! Perfect right after shoulder surgery

My husband had a rotator cuff tear, bicep tear, and labrum tear surgery from one of his kiteboarding excursions..well, as anyone knows this type of surgery is very very painful, our neighbor had one of the polar cold machines with a universal adaptor. It was perfect! So, I immediately ordered him one but also got the compression addition due to reviews and eventually he will want that as he heals too. We are only 8 days out from his surgery and he is not taking anymore prescribed pain meds but using the cold 'shoulder specific pad' that I got with our new unit and he LOVES IT! I can see us adding adaptors as we age for different parts as we need them lol..(we are almost 60y) this is a must have, I just wish we had it when he was a professional cyclist, wow we could have used it all the time!! THANK YOU FOR A GREAT PRODUCT. Just waiting on the adaptors to go on sale so i can order more:-).

5 star

I had my knee replaced two weeks ago.
I love my Frig polar care wave ice machine.
The people in therapy are amazed at how fast I’m bending my knee to 110° after two weeks
I use my machine on and off for 30 minutes all day long with and without the compression it’s wonderful
I also have to say that the owner of my cold therapy is really wonderful
It was a straight shooter told me everything about the machine and was very very nice to deal with.
I would not go to anyone else for any more medical products but my cold therapy

Very pleased

Very good design. Easy to use. Ready for knee replacement surgery next week.

I recently had rotator cuff surgery. I was told how painful and difficult the recovery would be. I live alone so I needed to make sure I had a way to ice my shoulder myself. I decided to get the Breg Polar wave. I used the wave everyday, all day (unless I was sleeping) for 10 days after my surgery. I was given 20 OxyContin and only used 6 in the first 2 days. My pain level was only a 1 or 2 the entire time.

I am now in week 9 of my recovery and my mobility and range is far beyond most others. I highly recommend this device. The ice lasts 6-8 hours and at time my friends had to bring me ice, since my fridge was not able to keep up. I should have used frozen water bottles. Also it is not paid for by insurance. 😢. I think it is money well spent. 👍🏽
