Sizing chart

Specifications/Sizing Information:

Most pads for the Donjoy IceMan are adult universally sized to fit every size patient, large or small. Here are some helpful hints to observe to help order the right size pad with your Donjoy IceMan :

  • Shoulder comes in two sizes: Regular and Small. Small is indicated for short and petite individuals; regular to large size individuals choose the Regular.
  • Universal Multiuse pads come in four configurations and all "look" like the universal wrap-on pad pictured above in our picture box. The difference: "Regular" fits 90% of individuals. The "XL" size pad (about 2" larger) provides slightly more coverage for larger shaped legs. Second variation is in the length of the hose: Regular Hose (RH) is 6.5" and the Extended Hose (EH), 15" is twice as long in the stem portion of the hose exiting the pad
  • Hip pad: Have to choose left or right.

  • This is a motorized device and requires a standard three prong outlet.

Warranty: 6 months for pads and coolers - warrantied against workmanship. They are non-returnable per DJO, and will be replaced if there is a defective issue with their function within the warranty period. Note: Donjoy does NOT warranty a purchase of the Donjoy Iceman on Ebay or Amazon because of these third party's "loose" return policies that do not ensure patient protection.

Worth it.
Had total knee replacement 6 weeks ago. Don't know how I would have managed without the DonJoy cold therapy machine I had purchased. A suggestion for those using this. It uses lots of ice. We started using small bottles of water which we froze. When they melted, we put them back in the freezer and used the 2nd batch. Definitely recommend this product. A constant source of cold without having to do anything but plug it in.
Don Joy Cold Therapy Unit Is Fantastic
It works great. It's better than using ice packs after knee surgery because they melt so fast. The ice lasts all day and you can ice as many times as you want. I would recommend this Donjoy Iceman to everyone. Thank you.
Good Value
I came home from the surgical center with a different type of cold therapy machine that ran on chemicals instead of ice and water. It ran $3000 rental for a month. The Donjoy Iceman is under $200 but has to be filled with ice water for every use and can be ordered with a variety of Donjoy Iceman pads for every part of the body. If you can fill the unit before each use, this is a bargain after insurance quits covering the more advanced units patients are probably sent home with. My recovery is great and the Donjoy Iceman cold therapy unit is a necessity.
Extremely helpful
This provided almost instant relief, and it lasted for hours. My knee (torn meniscus and arthritic, heading for surgery next month) felt so much better after I used it the first time that I got tons of things done around the house that had been languishing. I actually purchased it to use after the surgery, but it's been very helpful before it, as well - great little product, and easy to use.
Wow! This product is amazing
It helped my knee surgery feel so much better so quickly - I was amazed!!! Great customer service - appreciated that so much!!!
Worth the investment
I wasn't prepared to invest this amount of money in recovery from arthroscopic knee surgery. But a recommendation from a mother whose son was using it convinced me to make the purchase. When used properly, my Iceman provides hours of "icing" that just can't compare to ice packs. Only drawback is that it's bit heavy when fully loaded with ice and water -- so it helps to have someone around to prep and place it when you are first convalescing.
This is a great product.
Very reasonably priced, easy to set up and use. I purchased this product for my daughter to use on her injured ankle. She loves it and it isn't messy. It's not too big and bulky so can be transported easily as well. No complaints.
Works perfect
Before and after major shoulder surgery this is the way to go.
Fast delivery. Iceman machine works awesome. I play sports .. have a knee injury I ordered the universal wrap - works great on all parts of body that need ice down.
Couldn't be happier with DME.
Nice machine
Great little machine. I like the way it maintains constant temperature opposed to moving ice bags around with temperatures changing. Pump is a bit noisy but no big deal. An on/off switch would be nice instead of having to plug and unplug machine. Hip pad is a little awkward to velcro to leg, but works great once in place. Instructions are easy to follow as well.
Outstanding product
I am using this for my recovery from hip replacement surgery. I have also used one for my knee surgery. The hours of constant coolness helps reduce the inflammation. I also used a lot less pain medication. Anyone with chronic pain or going to have surgery most definitely should own an Iceman.
Iceman is well worth it
This Iceman is a wonderful product for anyone needing cold therapy. It is professional grade, and does the job perfectly. Shipping and the overall sales process were superb.
Works well, could be a little quieter
The Iceman design is good, but would be better if it were a little quieter. But all in all it has made my recovery much easier.
Donjoy Iceman
I had shoulder surgery and this machine is a MUST!!! It arrived quickly (even with the holiday (x-mas) crunch!! Easy to use, cools down quickly, half a bag of ice was used for 2 days. Yes the ice melted but the container keep the water cold enough to get 2 days of use!! The pad for the shoulder was a bit challenging to put on at first, but it delivered results. A must have for post surgeries!!
Very happy we purchased the Donjoy Iceman
My wife had extensive knee surgery and this product was recommend to us by the surgeon and friends who have gone through similar surgeries. The unit is EASY to set up and the instructions for operation were simple as well. The device requires quite a bit of ice, so I highly recommend getting bags of ice form the store. Our refrigerator ice machine could not keep up with the demand. For the first two days after surgery, we were using three to four bags of ice per day. Two things that can be improved is an on/off switch and an audible indication noise that lets you know the ice has melted and needs to be replaced.
Love my machine
I love this machine. I had meniscus surgery and lost 80% of my ACL. I stayed on the machine for four days and returned to the surgeon. Minimum swelling and was able to get off the pain meds in two days. It is easy to use and stays cold for about 6 hours. The motor is a little noisy but you get used to it. My machine arrived in one day and is one of the best investments I have made. Thank you for your product and fast service.
Very pleased!
I previously had had shoulder surgery. My wife borrowed a Donjoy Iceman from her boss for me to use. It was awesome. I am scheduled to have two knee replacements shortly and I made sure I was able to get one of these. I will be very happy just like before. Thanks for such a great product!
Definitely recommend to someone after surgery!
I had shoulder surgery a year ago and used this item. My wife borrowed one from her boss for me to use. It worked awesome. I am scheduled for two knee replacements in early 2014. Its just nice to know that you have something to help you out after your surgery. I would strongly recommend this product to people having surgeries.
Excellent product - wonderful pain relief
Thank you so much for making this product - I bought the Iceman with the regular shoulder pad for use after shoulder surgery. I wish I'd purchased it long ago when I first broke my shoulder in March 2013. I highly recommend this to anyone who has shoulder issues where ice would be beneficial. So much easier to use and far more comfortable than ice packs. Best purchase this year to help my shoulder along.
Outstanding product!
This was a lifesaver for my son who had broken his ankle. He could prop his foot and not have to worry about hobbling around changing ice packs. Easy to assemble & easy to work. The different settings were wonderful, too. Excellent therapeutic value. It also arrived very quickly which was an added bonus. I would definitely recommend this product (I used the advice of the reviewer who suggested freezing water bottles partially filled and that worked great as opposed to having to replenish ice. I would suggest taking off the labels first as they tend to disintegrate & get into the water system.)
Cool product must have
Very important to have for pain relief. Iceman allowed me to begin passive exercises the day after surgery with minimal pain. It doesn't seem to stay cold for more than 6 to 7 hours...needs to be refilled often. The hose connections from cooler to the pad are tight and do not leak, but are difficult to manage with one hand. Have lots of ice cubes on hand and help with the device for the first few days of use.
Easy to use and effective
In 1991 I had bone spurs removed from my right knee and the doctor recommended using a Iceman type unit to help reduce the swelling after surgery. Recently, I had a complete knee joint replacement and purchased this unit to help with post surgery cold therapy to help with reducing the swelling after surgery and before and after therapy. This unit is very easy to put together and prepare for use. The knee pad applies the cold therapy evenly and helps reduced swelling more effectively than just using an ice bag.
Outstanding Tool For My After Surgery or Injury Therapy
My first experience with a Donjoy Icman Cold Therapy Unit was in 1998. It was invaluable for my therapy. My second experience was in 2002 and it proved even more valuable this go round. It made it so much easier for those that were assisting me with my therapy and also provided longer lasting relief from pain and swelling than simple ice packs. I have now begun my third experience with the device (a newer version, but almost identical and just as easy and simple to use) and again am extremely pleased with the device. For me each time I've needed the therapy the Iceman has reduced the need for pain medications and speeded up my recovery immensely. Nothing else that I've seen or been exposed to provided near the assistance the Iceman has. I hope I never need to use it again, but if I do you can bet I won't hesitate to ask for the Donjoy Iceman.
Excellent device to manage swelling & inflammation
My surgeon recommended the Iceman before my knee surgery. I used it as soon as I got home and regularly after that. The results were amazing. When I took the bandages off there was no swelling at all. I had no pain after the surgery. My recovery was unbelievably quick. I believe a lot of the credit goes to this icing machine which allowed me to keep the knee cool for extended periods. Exactly what my doctor wanted.
It is very good.
Customer service on the phone and with delivery were excellent. This product is effective in mitigating pain and providing comfort when most needed.
Iceman Cold Therapy Unit is a MUST!
I recently ordered/received my Iceman Cold Therapy Unit. I was going to have an orthoscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus (2 places) and repair whatever was possible in the cartilage, tendon, bursa areas. It was only possible to repair the meniscus in both places and my torn cartilage in 1 place. (The remainder will fall under "fixed & stable" criteria.) I was in a great deal of pain, requiring an Oxycodone Every 4 hrs. for days. On day 3, my Unit arrived and was eagerly applied. The way it works is wonderful, and the need for Oxycodone/pain relief almost completely disappeared when I was able to use the unit. I do not like to take prescription drugs if at all possible, so this unit has allowed me to follow my conscience. I totally recommend the Iceman Cold Therapy Unit to anyone in need of applying cold to an injury/surgery site. But, please be careful & prudent. Follow the directions. If you don't, you risk the chance of doing harm to a site you wish to heal!
Love my Iceman
Thank you so much for developing this product! I had shoulder surgery in 2001 & 2002 & now 2013. This recovery is going much better because of your product. I've been using it for 5 weeks now about 12 times a day and I hardly need any painkillers. Thank you for helping me through this surgery. I would definitely recommend this little cooler to a friend!
Impressive customer service
I ordered on line after the close of the business day and called the next day to make sure I would have it by my surgery date. My order went out the next day, Thursday, and it arrived on Friday!
Great machine
Product delivered on time and as described. Not noisy, works well. Best post surgical rehab tool around.
Best product on the market
I had knee sugery when I came home from Iraq. I use one of the ice therapy machines back in 2010. I rented it from the hospital where I had my surgery. I came home from Afghanistan and had shoulder surgery from an injury there. When I didn't get to rent an ice machine I looked online until I came across one like I had before in 2010. After surgery it is the best possible product to help with the healing process. It helps with the pain and with the swelling. I would recommend it to everyone. Best buy and product on the market.
Would recomend
The Iceman really dose work. It's much better than ice packs. The only thing I do different is I get small water bottles and fill them 3/4 with water and freeze them. You use 3 or 4 of them instead of Ice. That saves you from dumping the water all the time. It's a great product.

Could not live without it!
This thing is a miracle machine. We have raved about this Iceman unit for years. This was our third Iceman. We gave our first one, purchased years ago, to our son for his back. We now each have our own and could not live without them. We first found out about it after my husband's knee surgery. it was provided to help with his recovery. It cannot be beat for ice therapy. My husband even uses it for long drives and it keeps his back from tightening up. We will always have at least one of these units in our home so please don't ever go out of business!
The Iceman is AWESOME!
This product is great. Made my recovery much easier.
Excellent Product
This product does exactly what it says it will do. The cold pack on my lower back felt as though I was getting a constant temp on my back. I would keep the same temp for around 5 hours. (I tried to stay at a therapeutic temp of 50 degrees. (Faren). This really is a well built product.
Valuable tool in my recovery
I used the iceman upon the recommendation of a friend. It was worth every penny. I purchased the hip pad to pinpoint the location of my surgery, and iced every day, sometimes twice, to keep swelling to a minimum. The pump really delivers a comforting cold pulse without placing weight on the site. I wish I had had one of these when I was running. It is compact and well thought out. I also liked the thermostat.
I had shoulder surgery and am using this cold therapy unit following the procedure. It is easy to assemble, put on pad and run unit (although initially help is needed to put the shoulder pad on). The circulating pump is a little loud, particularly at night. But the benefits from the continual cold therapy greatly outweighs that. Not only does it offer decreased swelling and sight discomfort, but also, diminished general pain and discomfort. I would highly recommend.
Arrived promptly in good condition
Haven't used this one one yet, but I have purchased one a couple of years ago and know they work great. I would recommend this to anyone.
Great product
Highly recommended - working great right after my surgery.
MUCH better than any icepack!
I rented a similar product for my first foot surgery and knew I wanted one for my second. I decided to buy this time because I knew it would be much more helpful than a simple icepack and would continue to be useful after I start running again. HIGHLY recommend this machine for anyone recovering from surgery, or anyone who may need more than an icepack for sports injuries. I love that you can control the temperature to keep it just right for your situation and that it's very easy to use.
Great unit, Great buying experience
Extremely helpful & knowledgeable staff made sure I got the correct configuration. Unit works perfectly, and the range of wrap-on pads is comprehensive.
Iceman Machine For Shoulder
This product has been great after my surgery, and the shoulder pad keeps my entire shoulder cold and pain free. The price is great. Thank you.
Easy to use.
I use my Iceman most of the day for pain and swelling after knee surgery. Went out of town without it for a couple of days and forgot to bring it along. Now I know what a difference it makes. The ice and water lasts me about 7 hours before I need to refill it. The temperature gauge is also pretty accurate as well.
My doctor asked me to get one a week before my surgery so I ordered it online from another place which said they had it in stock - they didn't. I called them up 2 days before my surgery and was told they dropship the product through Donjoy which was responsible for the delay. I called and ordered it here...unfortunately next day to get it in time, but got it as promised. Thank-you for actually stocking the product!
Great after surgery
I had a ACL reconstruction done 2 weeks ago and have been using my Donjoy Iceman every day. It lasts me about 6 hours before I have to refill it with ice. You can adjust the temperature control knob easily for the temperature you're shooting for. Mine arrived completely sealed so I didn't have to worry about it having been previously used and then returned back to the company. So I didn't have to worry about getting an infection. Great device.
Great ice machine
For years I've been dealing with chronic knee pain and always told I needed to have an operation in order to cure my problem. When I was at the hospital post surgery, I was given one of these units and absolutely fell in love. What a great item to replace traditional ice packs!! Got home, ordered one myself and couldn't be any happier with the product. DME DIRECT had great staff that knew exactly what I needed. Super friendly, CHEAPEST PRICES, and SUPER FAST SHIPPING! Thanks a bunch!

Q&A for Donjoy Iceman CLASSIC Cold Therapy Unit

  • From DJ
    • Q: I filled the tub, plugged it in and nothing happened. The transformer got warm but the motor did not start. Is there something I can troubleshoot?
    • A: With this device if it's not circulating water out to the pad and back to the cooler then the pump is shot. The pump/motor is completely contained inside the unit and is not patient accessible to prevent "tinkering" with. The product makes a quiet hum and, because it's quiet, you'll need to get a new working unit.

  • From gman
    • Q: I have two Iceman units from different surgerys but have misplaced both power cords. Does anyone know what volt these run with so I can replace them?
    • A: We sell the replacement transformer specifically designed and manufactured for the Iceman - it is a genuine Donjoy transformer. The transformer is not a typical voltage as commonly searched for at various electronic stores such as Radio Shack, etc. We receive calls weekly from people who purchase non-Donjoy brand 3 prong transformers from wholesale electronics stores only to see them burn out the device's motor instead of going with an authentic replacement part.

  • From Bill
    • Q: I can't seem to get the machine to cool consistently. I have tried using crushed ice and then filled with water and then removed everything and filled with water and frozen ice containers. It does cool but then seems to shut down. I am trying to get a constant 55 degree flow temp. Can I run the machine constantly or must it shut down for periods? What can we possibly be doing wrong?
    • A: Hi Bill,

      You'll always be able to achieve colder temperatures by using regular - large size ice cubes over crushed ice. As for the device not achieving a cold temperature, the thermostat control is designed to speed up the flow of water out to the pad to make it colder so if you're not getting a cold enough temperature out at the thermostat, after switching out the crushed for larger size ice cubes, then perhaps there's an issue with the pump. Also, the device does not need to be shut down...ever... to essentially "reboot" the temperature, so again, it sounds like you may be using a cooler with a lot of miles on it and the pump may finally be on its last legs.Please check with the facility who provided you the device originally for further trouble shooting.

  • From Frank
    • Q: Is the hose included in the purchase of the cooler? What is the length of the hose?
    • A: Hi Frank,

      The hose is attached to the cooler itself and is included in the price. The cooler outlet hose is approximately 60" in length.

  • From Paula
    • Q: My husband had shoulder replacement surgery and we borrowed an Iceman from a friend of ours who is a physical therapist. It was awesome and we are going to purchase one of our own - I'm having both knees replaced. Before we return his Iceman, we would like to clean it - it has a musty smell. Can you add vinegar or something to the water to freshen it up a little?
    • A: Hi Paula,

      The best way to clean the Iceman is to run 1/2 cup of vinegar through the machine and pad for half an hour. Then let the machine and pad both air dry.
