The Polar Care Kodiak® is the most convenient and versatile cold therapy system in Breg's Polar Care offering. The device features a 9 quart capacity cooler with a robust pump for enhanced durability and ultra-quiet performance.  The Kodiak Polar Ice machine features an excellent filtration system to prevent clogs and is designed to run for 6-8 hours before requiring fresh ice and cold water.  This means less work for you: let the ice therapy machine do all of the work!  The Kodiak Polar Care ice machine utilizes the latest ergonomically designed Intelli-Flo pads from Breg to mold around the joint and provide automatic regulated temperature control.  No more temperature control dials - the pads control the amount of cold automatically, so you reap the benefits of a safer treatment application.  The Breg Polar Care Kodiak ice therapy machine is lightweight and provides similar results when compared with larger cold therapy models.

Customer Reviews 25 item(s)

I have been using this now for about three weeks after my surgery and it has been the best investment I ever made. It's quiet and lasts for hours before I have a family memeber help refill it with ice. It stays cold all around my knee and keeps the pain under control. Worth every penny.
Excellent product and service
No issues w/ equipment. 4 days post op - Shoulder. Unit works as advertised. My new best friend.

The perfect partner to a knee replacement...
Thank you for providing quick delivery for a great product. I am still using this at the end of my recovery of a knee replacement. The ease of use, small size, easy connect-disconnect, long cord, and truly cold pad have been a blessing in my recovery. I've used this a lot at night but place a hand towel with substantial nap underneath then because it can get very cold. We have even taken it to the movies and on long car rides with the battery pack. I highly recommend this to anyone having a knee replacement.
Hi, aside from the prompt delivery, we have found the product to be very helpful and easy to use. My boyfriend found this product online and he was very keen on purchasing it because of his knee injury. He has shared it with a friend who had a similar injury and he is also considering getting one for himself. Thank you.
The best cold therapy!
I am 3 weeks out from a total knee replacement and this machine has been "a God send". I use it several times a day and 3-4 times during the night. We have 9 water bottles frozen and continually rotate them (3 at a time) into to cooler filled with cold water. We do not have to keep dumping water and refilling with ice- just change the frozen bottles. Works so slick! All Drs and discharge planners should require this treatment for everyone after knee or shoulder surgery, as it hastens recovery. So much more convenient that ice packs!
Great product
My son had bought one and it helped him recover so quickly. We have been sharing it back and forth and decided to buy my own. What a great decision, just had rotator cuff surgery. Best investment to help with the healing.

Great unit and prompt delivery
Using DME was vary easy to use. I contacted them to get the specifications and requirements of use and the staff was knowledgeable and courteous. This unit is vary user friendly and dependable. After having total knee replacement this unit was very important to maintain the swelling.
Just what I was looking for
I had foot surgery and continued to have lots of swelling and it was suggested to use a cold therapy machine. I use it at night while I sleep and it provides relief. However I also need to wear a compression sock while using the unit. It is a bit louder when running than I would like especially since I am using while I am trying to sleep. It's better than messing with ice packs from the freezer though.
Excellent cold therapy unit
My wife recently had a "Total Knee Replacement" operation 2/26/2014. Her surgeon recommended purchasing a Cold Therapy Unit. Without seeing the one they recommended, I investigated several that were being sold. I came across DME-Direct's website and found the Breg Polar Care Kodiak Cold Therapy Unit. After reviewing DME's site and impressed with their price on the unit, I decided to make the purchase. They were very fast in processing my order and had the unit shipped right away, while keeping me updated with tracking information. The unit arrived when it was scheduled to and to my surprise, it was the same brand and unit that was used by my wife's hospital. This unit has made a big difference in my wife's recovery, easing a lot of her pain as she heals.
Love my device. Only problem is, the Breg 500 pad does not convert to the Kodiak. So, I have to order an intelliflo pad to go with my unit - I thought my old old wrap-on pad would work but the connectors are different.
Kodiak is providing relief
This product is everything that it was advertised to be. It was received in excellent working condition. It arrived very quickly. I would recommend this product. If you are reading this review I wish you a speedy recovery from you injury. Cheers
Product is great but need constant refilling with ice
Good product to help recovery. Some issues are: noisy pump, constant refilling of ice. Positives are: it works to keep your injury cool without freezing area. Recovery is faster - without it I would recover much slower.
I just had rotator cuff surgery and this icing machine has been fantastic! I recommend, recommend, recommend!
Great Relief
Great product from a company with the customer in mind. How could you go wrong!
Great icing system
I bought this system because I had shoulder surgery and knew I would need to ice it on my own after physical therapy. Well this system looks like a cooler, but works just like a game ready ($4K) icer. I am able to put it on by myself, it gets super cold, and it's a very quiet machine. I would have given it 5 stars if it was not so bulky, but it was worth the money to ice my shoulders in a jiffy. The good thing is you do not have to fill it up all the way to ice your shoulder or whatever body you are trying to ice. The ice lasts for a 3 - 6 hours in the cooler and you can buy the splitter to ice two body parts at once, which is where I think it would need to be filled it up. Awesome machine just a little bulky but not looking for style points.
I had a Polar Care Cub in 1997 for a knee surgery, I loved my cub. The only down side was having to squeeze the bulb to get the cold water moving. I bought the Kodiak, with health spending dollars, because it plugs in. No more squeezing the bulb. I will have knee surgery in about a month and I can't wait to cheat the pain with my Kodiak!!!
Too early
Unfortunately, I will not have my surgery for at least two or three months hence. However, on visual inspection I find it well made and hope it will last without problems. I had my right hip replaced on April 2012 and now my left knee joint has to be replaced. I am seventy-five years old and do not know what the future holds regarding right knee and left hip, you see they are the same age as me, Of course all the rest of my body is lying in wait to cause me hassles.

I ordered the Kodiak Polar Care with back and shoulder Inteli-flo pads.... I had used the Polar care 300 in the past, but really like the Kodiak with Inteli-flo pads. I just had shoulder surgery and this little unit has been my life savor. Makes the healing process so much easier. I would definitely recommend this product. The service at DME- Direct can't be beat either. I ordered it on Monday and it arrived the very next day. Now that's service. Plus staff is very friendly as well as helpful.
Great product
Love this machine! Had arthroscopic repairs done to my hip and have been using this to minimize swelling. Works like a charm and is so quiet!
Great device
My wife got one of these when she had her knee replaced and loved it. When my mom had her knee replaced her doctors didn't send her home with one so this unit was purchased for her and she is loving it.
After being in the Medical field for the past 40 years & knowing the importance of cold therapy, this little wonder is perfect. Easy to use, virtually indestructible & small enough to move wherever it's needed. My wife had rotator cuff surgery & repair of a torn bicep muscle. This unit was recommended by her orthopedist. Our local PT's have them for rent @ $70 weekly, with a minimum recommendation of the doc for 2 weeks. Knowing that she will need her other shoulder done in the future, as well as my shoulder made it worth the cost. The adaptability with different shapes & sizes of the pads is a plus. Best investment I've ever made. It works very well on the back of my neck for my chronic headaches too. It was used almost non-stop for the first 72 hours, & although it used a lot of ice in that time, it made all the difference in pain control for her. My only problem was that we weren't told about it until 4 days prior to the surgery so we had to pay the 2 day guaranteed delivery price to make sure it was here in time. I HIGHLY recommend this unit (as a nurse & caregiver husband) to anyone facing any type of orthopedic surgery & I'm sure many more uses for other medical issues. Thanks for making a great product & soothing my wife's operative pain!!
A miracle machine after shoulder surgery.
After painful shoulder surgery, the hospital sent this machine home with me. We didn't have any ice in the husband got an extra bag of ice from the store because our freezer doesn't have an automatic ice maker - no big deal though. This is definitely a true life saver. Highly recommend this machine for any kind of injury or surgery. Much easier to use than a ziploc full of ice.
Miracle for my ankle
I had a severe ankle situation that lead to surgeries (yes - more than one) and I've got to thank the surgeon who actually told me to get this device. It is so much better than a bag of ice from the freezer (which can get TOO cold and damage your skin). It took away a lot of the swelling and pain and made recovery a bit faster. I'd say to get one of these if you have any orthopedic procedures coming up...
Love my unit
I called before I bought my cold therapy machine and was able to review all of the different Breg models and all of their differences. I got all my questions answered and choose the Breg Kodiak because of its better pump. I'm using mine for my rotator cuff repair and I use it about 8 hours a day. It's really helped me with my pain tremendously at home and after physical therapy. I love my unit -thanks.
Thanks for letting us know about this latest product from Breg. We've been happy with the Polar Care 500, but can see some improvements that have been incorporated into the Kodiak. The quiet motor is very powerful, and I like the fact that the pads deliver a consistent temperature. (ie: no more fussing with thermostats).

Q&A for Breg Polar Care Kodiak Cold Therapy Unit

  • From Ann
    • Q: Do any pads come with the unit? Is the multi-use pad good for shoulder (rotator cuff repair) and knee (replacement) for an extra-large man? What does the long stem provide vs regular stem (ie why would one choose one over the other?)
    • A: Hi Ann,

      The pads for the Breg Kodiak are chosen individually to complement your Kodiak purchase - we offer all of the different pads instead of bundling the unit with say, a muli-use pad for example, so that you can order the exact pad that's necessary for the type and location of your surgery. The muli-use pad is designed for use on both a shoulder or a knee joint and has stretchable elastic straps to fit most size individuals. While those straps can stretch to fit even large size people, we cannot tell you that it is "definitely" capable of fitting an "extra large" size man as a 275 lb individual obviously has more flesh than say a 500 lb extra large man. The multi-use, long stem (10245) is 16 3/4" long vs the regular length multi-use (10240) which has a 5" long stem portion (referring to portion of the hose existing out of the pad). So, while the hose exiting from the unit is 5' long, if you feel that you would need a little extra hose length, say for use on a shoulder, then you might want to consider ordering the pad with the additional stem length.

  • From Kristina
    • Q: HI - what are prescribing instructions??
    • A: Hi Kristina,

      Prescribing instructions refers to your doctor's recommendations towards the during and frequency of using the device. He/she might say for you to use it everyday (frequency) for a maximum of 6 hours (duration). The idea here is that your doctor will often give those directions as part of the instructions when you're discharged from the hospital to go home after your surgery whether it be an ACL reconstruction, a rotator cuff repair, etc

  • From Jackie
    • Q: Unit has quit pumping. Sounds like it is running but liquid is not going through tube to pads. What could be the problem? Any trouble shooting pointers?
    • A: Hi Jackie,

      Please look at our Kodiak Instructions pdf which has troubleshooting steps to follow to clean the pump's filter assembly - it's easy and takes just two minutes to clean your filter. Particles in your water eventually get caught in the filter. When you let it dry out from non-use, these particles can get clogged inside the filter thus backing up the flow of water through the device. Take a quick look at the troubleshooting tips on our guide and this should help remedy this situation.

  • From Herb
    • Q: Do you have a pad that you would recommend for a 6'1" man who weighs 240 lbs. who has a hamstring pull? Thanks.
    • A: Hi Herb,

      The Multi-use Intelli-flo pad #10240 would be the ideal pad to use for treating this type of injury.

  • From Bill
    • Q: I have a Kodiac unit and a shoulder pad from a 500 unit. Is there a converter stem that will allow the use of the 500 shoulder pad on the Kodiac?
    • A: Hi Bill,

      I'm sorry there isn't a converter available for using wrap-on pads on a Kodiak. The Kodiak uses Intelli-Flo pads only.
