I love the Glacier


I bought the Breg Glacier Polar Care for knee revision / replacement...love it! I can get 6-7 hours continuously, and the temperature control addition is outstanding. 3 days post op, I'm walking without any devices to assist! The Glacier has done a great job of controlling swelling, and I have recommended to several friends that have ortho surgeries upcoming. Thanks Breg!

Thanks so much for sharing your Breg story and we are glad to hear you are on your way to recovery.


The polar care is wonderful. I Had rotator cuff surgery BUT it is so hard to connect when you disconnect the sleeve from the cooler. No way can I do it by myself, my neighbor has a tuff time with two arms!

Hi Bonnie
Thank you for your post. Please contact our Customer Care Center at 800.321.0607. We would like to troubleshoot your difficulty and see if we can resolve the issue for you.

Every family should have one!

Like others, I received my breg cooler post ACL surgery. The ice water circulation is brilliant and helped me avoid all the post op pain pills. I wish I knew about this at the time of my injury. Every ski resort, soccer team, and active family should have one of these products. As a coach, it will be at my side on long weekend games and I plan to work it into future team budgets. My only question (and the reason on this website) is where can I find additional accessories for the team (such as ankle). Great product that needs more marketing upstream at the time of injury!

Brilliant Idea is Outstanding


In the fall of 2002 I had shoulder surgery and this item was given to me at the hospital to take home. In just a few minutes they explained how it worked and sent me on the way. It was definitely heaven sent. Whoever thought up this idea was brilliant. It was so easy to work and there was no mess involved. We would fill it with ice, add water to the line, submerge the pump and turn it on. The pad I wore on my shoulder was comfortable and I could easily control the temperature up and down when needed. I would wear it while watching TV or I would even wear it when I went to sleep at night with no fear of getting the bed wet from it. I love this device. I also recovered extremely fast from my surgery (to everyone's surprise) and have been back to doing everything I could do before surgery. I've used it many times since for other family members. Now I'm looking for other pads to purchase for my mother's knee replacement surgery. This is an amazing product!
