Do You Need to Replace Ice Packs
Ice Packs are mainly portable plastic bags filled with water or gel and must be frozen before use. Some commercial packs are bulky and too heavy hence difficult to use around sensitive areas such as the eyes. They also pose a danger to such sensitive body parts in case the ice or gel leaks. If you want to replace your ice packs, the Breg Polar Care Cube is a better option. See more where you can find the Breg Polar Care Cube pack for your needs.
Breg Polar Care Cube
The Breg Polar Care Cube uses a motorized system that pumps cold water from a cooling machine. The water is then directed to compression pads which provide relief. The compact design makes the product very convenient for clinics, hospitals, and home use. You can add both water and ice, enabling you to enjoy between 6-8 hours of motorized cold therapy.
Besides a sprained ankle, you can use polar cold therapy for chronic pain, physical therapy, post-trauma, general surgery, and plastic surgery. It can also be used post-operation and during reconstructive and arthroscopic procedures.
Breg Polar Care Cube Special Features
Ergonomic Design: The wrap-on pads come with an ergonomic design, providing patients comfort, efficiency, and coverage.
Static Compression: The plastic straps hold the wrap on pads in place and at the same time offer static compression. By providing constant pressure, the compression pads greatly help the lymphatic system by reducing inflammation.
Polar Dressing: The cube unit has a water-impermeable sterile polar dressing, and this ensures there is a complete barrier between the pad and the skin. When using the pad, it’s important to note that there must be an insulation barrier between the pads and the client’s skin. A Terry cloth hand towel is a great insulation choice.
Pad Coverage: The Polar Cube has impressive pad coverage and is recommended for various uses other than the ankle area. It can be used by patients with problems on the shoulder, hip, knee, and lumbar area.
The Breg Polar Care Cube is simple to use and very convenient, especially for patients who find it hard to move or keep changing the pack in the case of ice packs. The additional features, such as compression straps, add extra benefits.
