Love This Machine


I just had a total knee replacement and when I woke up I had this unit on my leg. It makes all the difference in the world and when they tell you ice is your friend you want something like this to deliver that cold to the area. Couldn't have done without it. So much easier than trying to use gel packs or other types of ice packs. Glad to know that it will be there when I get my other knee done.

Hi Barbara
Thanks for sharing your Breg story with us. We wish you a speedy recovery!

Great machine, but...


My mother recently had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff and was given the Polar Care Cube after surgery to relieve swelling. The unit is quiet, effective in delivering cold therapy quickly, and really helping her. There is one downside however, it is impossible for her to connect the machine with the coupling mechanism designed as it is. She cannot exert enough force with her non-dominant hand to engage the coupling mechanism. Wither her arthritis, she also cannot depress the locking mechanism sufficiently enough to disengage the coupling mechanism when it is time to turn the Cube off. I had to help her connect/disconnect the tubing. I found it difficult and I have no physical limitations (the disconnecting was easier).
Is there a model that offers the same benefits of this model, but has an easier to operate coupling connection? Since her recovery will span several months, I would like her to be able to connect the machine on her own, since she will need to use it when no one is around to help her.
Thank you

Thank you for your post and your feedback. We have recently made changes to the product to reduce the force required to make the connection.  Please contact our Customer Care Center at 800.321.0607 so we can provide you with some options that will help, and a replacement unit if needed.

Polar Cube for Shoulder Arthroscopy


I had extensive work done on my shoulder arthroscopically and the surgeon strongly recommended this unit. I used it as instructed and it made a tremendous difference. I can't say enough about this's reliable, easy to use, quiet, portable, and very well-made. I've used it intermittantly since after rehab sessions and the unit was equally effective at relieving irritation and soreness. I consider it a must-have for this type of surgery.
Customer service is great. The straps were a little small for me and the Berg rep literally came to my office a couple of days before surgery to deliver longer straps...just outstanding!

Ice question


Hi! I just purchased my Polar Cube for my post op ACL surgery. I am wondering how often I need to change the ice since its an electrical refrigerated unit. My ice seems to last around 4-5 hours but not more. Is that typical? I can't seem to find any information online or in my instructions. Otherwise, the unit is staying cold & working well. Thanks! Beth Stevie

Hi Beth
Thanks for your question. You can obtain directions for your Polar Cube here  Your ice should last longer than 4-5 hours. We are happy to help you troubleshoot a variety of things that could affect how long the unit is working. Please call our Customer Care Center at 800.321.0607

Great Product , highly recommend ..


I injured my Left wrist at work and have had 5 surgery's to date , on the 1st two , I did not have a polar cube , well different Dr. for #3-5 and have used the polar pack with great results , reduces swelling and pain which allows for taking less pain meds and quicker recovery times .

I'm very pleased with the results and would highly recommend this to anyone for post op care ..

I would like to have a 12v car adapter as well , I live 1:30 min from Dr. and it would be great to use to and from appointments .
