The Breg Polar Care Glacier Cold Therapy Unit balances the needs of the patient and the clinician. Its easy to use, feature-rich design makes it a great choice for hospital use. The Polar Care Glacier features a large capacity cooler along with a robust pump design capable of providing 8-11 hours of motorized cold therapy that's ideal for hospital use and recovery at home. The outlet hose features an integrated flow valve adjustment knob that gives patients the ability to increase/decrease the flow of water to the pad for temperature control according to their comfort level.  A variety of different wrap-on pads are available for use which snap easily into the outlet hose connector. 

Initial set-up for the Breg Polar Care Glacier takes less than five minutes - simply fill your system with ice and water, plug your pad into the end of the outlet hose to get up and running.  The product is ideally suited for post surgical recovery inside a hospital, rehab center, or at home.  The unit is shipped factory sealed and comes complete with the cooler, pump assembly, and your choice of wrap-on pad.

Breg Polar Care Glacier Cold Therapy Unit Reviews

  1. Great design Review by Michael Peterson

    Recovering from knee surgery. This unit is staying cold for 9-10 hours as advertised. It's been simple to use and set-up at home while recovering after my total knee surgery. The pads keep my knee cold and do wonders for the swelling. It's also more quiet compared to my last device.

  2. A+ product and company. Review by Michael Cooke

    Great product and excellent service! Had rotator cuff surgery (3 large tares). The only pain that I experienced was after the nerve block wore off which was expected. This product with shoulder wrap limited that pain to just a few hours. After that, no pain at all, just a little sore. Also, this product reduced the swelling really fast. Works as described. Only took medication because it was recommended every 4 hours. After 2 days, I only used this product. it's a life saver! Feels great after rehab exercises - I used 24/7 it 24/7 the first 3 days after surgery. Loaded with ice every 12 hours. HIGHLY recommend!

  3. Excellent service Review by Wes Walker

    The guy that took my phone order was absolutely phenomenal. He went out of his way to get my package to UPS after the last pickup had come and gone. It was a life saver for me. I can't say enough how they went above and beyond to help me.

  4. Like my machine Review by Jan

    I like my machine. Had used the Polar Care 500 before. This is the same size cooler - love it.

  5. Performs as promised! Review by Maggie W.

    Got this machine to ice my shoulder following surgery. Works great, quiet, and just minimal leakage when you disconnect. Not sure what I would have done without it.

  6. Essential for pain relief and acceleration of healing Review by John M.

    I had borrowed one from a friend then her daughter broke her leg the same week. The fastest, and cheapest way was through DME Direct. We phoned on Thursday night at 6:40 and got it at 10:45 the next day. Astoundingly fast although we did pay for express. I was in a lot of pain. Never having used the product before, I was impressed. It did numb the pain and gave me great comfort after my ACL reconstruction. The price is worth every penny. If a friend has broken a bone, people should join in on buying one that they could share amongst themselves. I have only good things to say about it. A new discovery.

  7. This product was great Review by Eva

    I received the Glacier and was able to use it right away - set up was easy and the device is a great replacement for my old polar care 500. The pad gets cold and covers my entire shoulder really well. The cold is lasting about eight hours or so before I need to replace the ice and water again. Highly recommend it to others looking for cold therapy coolers.

  8. Great product Review by Ralph

    The new Breg Glacier model is an excellent device. The design changes to the new Glacier model are very good, i.e. the motor mounted to the bottom of the lid) and the larger ice/water capacity. The larger capacity allows for use throughout the night. Great product!

  9. Good device after surgery Review by Chris Dorner

    I just got one to replace my old Polar Care 500. The only reason for giving it a 4 instead of a 5 is that it doesn't have a temperate guage like my old unit but I do like the way the water stays cooler for longer compared to my previous system. If you're having knee surgery this is well worth the cost. Received mine in two days after ordering!

  10. Easy To Use Review by Beverly Foreman

    I have been using my Breg Polar Care Glacier for about two weeks now after my knee surgery and can't get over the way it's given me pain relief. It was very easy to set up and has been a blessing in my recovery. Thank-you!
