Brand/Manufacturer: POLAR PRODUCTS, INC.


Authorized Retailer Badge

Polar Active Ice Cold Therapy System with 9 Quart Cooler is specially designed for post-surgery and drug-free pain relief. This Cold Therapy System uses a motorized pump to circulate cold water from cooler to the desired body area, delivering localized cold therapy to users either at home or during hospital stays. The panel mount right angle coupling keeps the pump motor tighter to the cooler walls. This will stop the motor from flopping around in the cooler when emptying it.

Significance Of Timer in Polar Active Ice System

Timer allows only 30 minutes session before it requires resetting. This helps the user to check the skin before resetting. Several times it is required to wait before resetting the timer because the skin gets very cold. The cases of people being hurt due to overuse of cold therapy are very common. This makes timer an essential safety feature.

    How to Set Up Active Ice 3.0 Cold Therapy System?

    1. Always begin with power supply unplugged. Do not turn on the system until all connections are complete and the hose from the cooler to the therapy bladder is free from bends or restrictions, as this will restrict water flow through the system.
    2. Open the reservoir and fill with ice to near the top of the cooler. Fill the reservoir with large blocks of ice for an extended cooling time. For example: freeze water in milk cartons, then tear away the carton.
    3. Add cold tap water to the fill line, approximately 1.5 to 2 quarts. Always ensure the water covers the pump. Do not overfill. Never operate the unit without water! This can cause pump failure.
    4. Connect the therapy bladder hose to the cooler hose. Depress tabs on couplings before connecting. Couplings “click” when they are properly locked together.
    5. Plug power supply into the unit and into a wall outlet. If using a battery pack, follow instructions with the pack.
    6. Adjust the temperature control to “Coldest” and turn the timer knob clockwise to turn the unit on. Allow the unit to run a few minutes for the temperature to stabilize before using the system. Always ensure that there is water flowing through the top return tube to the cooling reservoir.
    7. Use the enclosed elastic belt with hook and loop tabs to hold the universal bladder comfortably on the targeted body part. Always use an insulation barrier such as Webril, Kerlix, cast padding, or elastic bandage between the therapy bladder and the skin.
    8. Adjust the temperature control to the desired level. When the temperature has risen above the desired temperature, refill the reservoir with ice. Drain water if necessary.
    9. Confirm that water is flowing through the return flow tube at the top of the cooler when the system is on.

    How to Use Universal Therapy Bladder?

    1. Do not turn the system on until all connections are complete and the hose from the cooler to the wrap is free from bends or restrictions.
    2. Place the bladder over the targeted area with the smooth side toward the skin. Always use this bladder with a protective layer of fabric between the bladder and the skin.
    3. Use the elastic belt, tab or compression wrap to comfortably hold the bladder in place. Place the bladder on the target body part and hold in place with the elastic strap.
    4. Connect the bladder tubes to the Active Ice Cold Therapy System tubes with the quick connect couplings. Depress the tab on the female coupling first, then press the system coupling into the bladder coupling until you hear a “click” sound. This click is the sound of the couplings connecting and locking into place.
    5. Be sure the hoses are not restricted or bent, as this will restrict water flow through the entire system.

    Any compression provided with our system is manually applied when attaching the wrap to the body. There is no on/off option, but the user can secure the wrap as loosely, or tightly as is comfortable or recommended to apply compression.
