Great Unit
I had a smaller unit and was constantly filling it with ice. The Breg Glacier will last 8+ hours and that is super especially at night! The unit is solid and I am sure I will be lending it out for years.

Great investment
I read extensively reviews and summaries of cold therapy machines prior to my TKR. I settled on the Breg Polar Care Glacier Unit to help with my rehab. This unit was appealing in that I could crank up the cold if needed or reduce the cold flowing through the knee pad. I use it 4 or more times daily and will no doubt use it after outpatient PT. I need to have another knee, hip, & eventually a shoulder replaced so this unit appears reliable enough to help me through those rehabs.

Breg Polar Care Glacial Cold Therapy
Fantastic product that I’ve used for more than a decade. I’ve had 14 spine surgeries and use it nightly to reduce the swelling in my lower back. Without it I can’t sleep. I travel with this unit and it’s never been a problem with TSA or airline agents. I bought an inexpensive strap to secure the unit & prevent the top from unlocking. One suggestion to users, make sure to use a folded towel between your body and the “cold wrap”. Even with the lightest setting, the unit can be quite cold.

Runs well, control of temp is useful
We have had a Polar Cube for over twelve years and it has worked well for over 15 surgeries. The pump finally started to weaken so we replaced it with the Polar Care Glacier. We love how quiet it runs and the to be able to control the coldness level is a definite plus.

excellent service and advise
I have used the Breg polar care therapy unit for at least 5 years due to various ailments. It works great and the pads apply the soothing relief that is necessary. I have used this on my knees, shoulder, back, and feet. The cooler lasts for about 8 hours, so you can get through the night without replacing the ice. My only complaint is that the Breg cooler works usually for about a year and then the motor quits. You cannot buy just the motor part, so you end up buying a new machine. I use it every day so maybe that's to be expected, but it would seem to me that there should be some cheaper solution to the defective part. DME-Direct delivered fast and on time and their pricing is always excellent. I would highly recommend them.

Excellent addition
Breg coolers do the job for me. The cooler works a full 8 hours without any problems.
DME-Direct was great to work with. The cooler price was fair, the customer service great and the delivery on time. I couldn't ask for anything more. Great job.

Excellent choice
I have used the Breg Polar Care before. It works excellent and lasts at least 8-10 hours. DME Direct is a pleasure to work with. Ordering was easy, the price was great and the delivery was as advertised. I would highly recommend them.

SOOOO glad I had this after my surgery!
I had surgery for frozen shoulder, bicep tear, rotor cuff tear, ac joint removal, etc.etc...., we bought 20lb bags of ice and split them up into basically 5 lb. bags. My husband only needed to fill once every other day or once every day to keep the ice and cold water circulating. Well worth not having to worry or get up to do bags of ice all the time! I found the universal shoulder wrap fit all the areas I needed. The only problem I had was the straps (#2 and 3) were not long enough to get under my surgery arm and velcro on correctly. Despite that, I have been using the wrap and #1 strap fine. I use #3 strap to basically make a cape over the shoulder/arm area. Works very well. I love the adjustable switch to regulate the coldness. Very nice!

Excellent product
Very pleased with the Breg Polar Care Glacier cold therapy unit. We had borrowed an older unit from a friend for my husband's injured leg and decided we needed our own. My husband has back problems too so we know we will use it a lot. It really has helped with his leg injury. This newer unit runs quieter and colder! Very pleased.

Very glad to own this model
This is an updated model from the one I had 10 years ago which I have appreciated and used many times. When my old one finally started to leak (probably because I let it drop on the hard floor and yanked on the hose a bit over the years), I bought this model to replace it. I like the large ice chest, electric pump, and the thermostat temp control. This is a must-have therapeutic device in our house - we've learned to use it both for knee and/or ankle injuries. Now I know to treat it with a little more respect, less dropping, and I hope it will last another long time.

Great design
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.

A+ product and company.
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!

A well-designed system that provides a convenient way to apply constant-temperature cold.
Provides very convenient way to apply constant-temperature cold to the area being treated. The system is well designed and sturdy. It would be nice to be able to know the actual temperature of the water passing through the sleeve, for a given dial setting, but that might be more information than is either useful or easily provided.

Excellent service
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.

Performs as promised!
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.

Essential for pain relief and acceleration of healing
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.

This product was great
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.

Great product
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!

Good device after surgery
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!

Easy To Use
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!
