    "I purchased a Kool Max® Torso Vest and it is working soooooo good. I am an amputee and this is keeping my body temperature stable to help with my blood pressure. The torso vest has been a God send."

    Arthritis
    "My husband and I began using Thera-temp® Moist Heat Wraps due to pains in our joints caused by arthritis, poor circulation, and sciatic nerve conditions. I first purchased Polar's 9" x 18" moist heat pack with an elastic, Velcro ready belt. I find this product to be effective at providing relief for my husband and I. These Polar Moist Heat wraps are superior to heating pads in providing relief." 
    - Beverly in Akron, Ohio

    Polar's Note: In fact, Beverly liked our products so much she has recently purchased 8 additional moist heat wraps to give to friends as Christmas gifts!

     Cancer
      "I'm a food server in a beautiful restaurant. I take tamoxifen for breast cancer. I wear the black vest to work instead of my uniform vest and its amazing. I feel refreshed and ready to go all day and night. I wish more people knew this product was available. I tell everybody and highly recommend it."
    - Laura in New Jersey

      "I am a maintenance supervisor in San Antonio, Texas who is battling Multiple Myeloma Cancer. This [Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest] is keeping my core temperature down when I am outside so I can continue working. It is comfortable to wear. I love it!"
    - Diana L. in San Antonio, Texas
      "I use these [Soft Ice® Mitts] during my chemo treatment to help ward off neuropathy damage to my fingernails. They keep the hands extremely cold and have pockets so that the ice packs can be switched out during my treatments. Very happy to have found these. They work great."

       Back Pain
       "I love my Polar Products lumber wrap [Lumbar Compression Wrap], its *AWESOME*. It allows me to move freely while I'm icing my back and keeps the ice in place while I'm driving my car. It's easy to use so I'm applying ice more frequently than if I had to lie on my back each time; this flexibility aids my recovery."

       Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
      "I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and it causes me to not be able to control my body temperature or handle the heat. The [Kool Max® Zipper Front] vest has been a big help. It really makes a difference when I go shopping or run errands. It gives me peace of mind. Thank you!"

      Down Syndrome
     
    "My son was born with Down Syndrome and has a hard time regulating his own body temperature. With this vest we have been able to play outside without the constant worry of him overheating. His safety means everything to us and this vest certainly helps my husband and I worry a little less. The vest is easy to use, easy to clean, and it really does only take 20 minutes in ice water to recharge. We also opted for the extra ice packs which admittedly come in handy more than I originally thought. I highly recommend getting them if you plan to be out in the heat for more than a couple hours. On a side note: The vest is super cute on my little man! We got the light blue one thinking it would not absorb as much heat as the darker ones. I could not be happier with this product!"

        Dysautonomia (POTS)
       "Hi!! I ordered my [Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest] in July. I was diagnosed with POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) last June. It's been one year since my diagnosis. I struggle daily to live a normal life. I have severe heat intolerance due to my syndrome due to my autonomic system failure. I wanted to be able to enjoy outdoor activities again and found your product. I went to the beach this month and wore it and was able to enjoy myself. This product is amazing! I have told all my fellow POTS sufferers!!"
    - Lacey in West Monroe, Louisiana
       "I bought the cooling vest and two sets of ice packs for my teenager. This vest works great! My daughter has POTS and we have highly suggested this vest to our peers."
    - Linda in Pennsylvania
      "I bought this Cool Comfort® Hidden Vest for work. I work in an aquatic center and my uniform shirt is 100% polyester. Since it's started hitting the 60s outside, I've been miserable (I have dysautonomia). This vest does a good job of keeping me cooler. I also like that i can wear it my undershirt and work polo and no one can tell it's there."
    - Ashton in Virginia
       "I bought this vest for my husband, who is 6'3" and wears a 3XL. He has dysautonomia, chronic migraines, and fibromyalgia. He does not handle hot weather well. He is also an automotive technician, so he works in a hot shop and often times over a hot engine. He has only been wearing the Kool Max® vest for a week now, but he is absolutely in love with it. It fits him well, is comfortable to wear at work and he is much cooler with his vest." 
    - Barb K. in Wisconsin
       "We are huge fans of the Children's Cooling Vest! My 10 year old son has POTS and Exercise Induced Anaphylaxis...and the vest has been a way he can participate in fun activities again. He wore this one in a variety show and his friends wore costumes to make it military themed"

      Fibromyalgia
      "This is to let you know how much I appreciate and thank you for helping me to find relief from pain caused by arthritis and Fibromyalgia. I recommend the Roller Ice massage tool. I used this wonderful new devise and it brought an instant relief to my sore and crippling body parts. It isn't heavy or awkward to hold and takes 15 minutes at the most to be mobile once again." 
    - Jan in Akron, Ohio
      "My good friends has joint pain due to her Fibromyalgia, so I gave her a Soft Ice® Foot and Ankle Wrap. She just loves it! It conforms to the body, which gives much relief to her pain." 
    - Mo in Akron, Ohio
      "My daughter has Fibromyalgia and has a very hard time with hot weather. She LOVES the [Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest] and wears it all the time! It's a great investment for her."

      Hot Flashes
     
    "My 65-year-old mother, who is experiencing hot flashes, came to visit me here in Houston in the early summer. I knew it would be too hot for her to endure so I ordered her a Kool Max® Cooling Vest and an extra set of packs for her to have upon her arrival. Needless to say, she absolutely loves her vest and told me it was the BEST gift I ever gave her!." 
    - Pamela in Houston, Texas
      "I was surprised at the effectiveness of the Soft Ice® Cooling Pillow Case, even at room temperature. A great product, thank you!"

       Ichthyosis
       "This is a true lifesaver for my daughter, she has a skin condition called Ichthyosis that prevents her from sweating and regulating her body temperature. With this [Cool Kids® Toddler Cooling Vest] she is able to attend recess and PE with her friends at school and participate in other outdoor activities. The ice packs stay cool for a long time in 80 degree weather, we haven't tested it out in very hot weather yet."

       Knee Pain
      "For me, it's net worth is at about a million dollars. I used the velcro® strap to secure it [Soft Ice® Deluxe Knee Wrap] in place on my knee while I slept overnight. It took my tenderness and pinched nerve pain away after just 2 nights of using it. I had frozen the packs and even though they thawed out over night they were still a bit cooler then the room temp. I love the comfort of the gel-like substance that made it easy to sleep with. It stabilized my leg while I tossed and turned, which I tend to do a lot of when I sleep. I can't thank you enough and just wanted to let you know it worked out great!"
    -Crystal M. in Florida 
      "This device [Active Ice® Therapy System] has made life important again when in pain! I can wrap the area of the knee or hip and in 30 minutes able to go back to doing things with out the use of drugs!

      Lupus
      "I am really enjoying the Kool Max® vest in the dog days of August and September in hot, humid southwest Georgia. I have had trouble all summer with Lupus flares due to the intense heat and humidity. The vest has allowed me to spend time with my horses even on very hot days without having to spend the next day in bed."

      Migraines
      "There is no doubt that the [Cool Flow®] headache cap helps in the management of migraines/headaches. On a couple of occasions I was able to abort the headache by wearing the cap. Yesterday, I had a bad headache, so I took my prescription drugs in mid afternoon, knowing that I would have to follow it up with more stronger prescription drugs in the evening. Instead I wore the cap for an extended period while I watched television. I was able to almost completely annihilate the headache and did not take a second dose of prescription drugs " a definite success."
    - Marc in Phoenix, Arizona
      "[My Son] has had a continuous headache now for two years and the Doctors have no idea how to help him. I started looking up your products after one night when his headache was high he rode from work with his head out the window and it was cold out. The cold air made him feel better. Further at work he has been taking breaks standing in the freezer or outside (it's gotten cold up here). In his room he has an air conditioner we used during the summer to cool his room which helps him sleep. He continued to use it as it got cold so we built for him a vent from the outside which blows cold air directly across his head and this has helped immensely. 

    [My son] has found the [Cool Flow® Head Cap] very helpful and we have used it quite a bit in our home. While it does take quite a bit of ice to keep it cold we have found we can substitute snow (which we seem to have an abundance of) and this has helped tremendously. [He] uses ice packs a lot but these tend to only last a short time whereas the head piece can be used for hours. Another bonus has been while travelling over the holidays we were able to run the unit in the vehicle again keeping him nice and comfortable. 
    - Mark in Canada
     
     absolutely love this product[Cool Flow® Head Cap] and would recommend it to anyone suffering from frequent migraines, it has made a world of difference.

       Mitochondrial Disease 
       "This is my daughter's 2nd Kool Max vest, as she out grew the 1st (which lasted 4+ years of daily use). Due to her Mitochondrial Disease, she is unable to regulate her body temperature. This vest has given her the freedom to go outside when it is over 75 degrees. THANK YOU for this precious gift, and the freedom to go places and still maintain a safe core temp."

      Myasthenia Gravis
      "Thank you so much for the Kool Max® Vest. I'm now able to take long walks and work in my yard without getting heat exhaustion induced by my Myasthenia Gravis disease. I feel like my old self again." 
    - J. in Austin, Texas
       "I love my Polar Kool Max® vest! I am 69 years old and was diagnosed with MG in 2000. There are approximately 14 Myasthenics in every 100,000 of the population. A primary aggravating factor in the Myasthenic, as in the MS patient, is heat and humidity, and the raising of one's core body temperature. Once I received the support of my neurologist I was able to obtain a cooling vest from Polar. This wonderful cooling vest has made my MG so much more manageable! I enthusiastically recommend the Polar Products Cooling Vest to any and all MS or MG patients."

       Night Sweats
       "I Love the pillowcase. Great for hot heads like me! Got much better, longer sleep last night. Didn't have to flip the pillow every 10 minutes before sleep and it stayed cool a very long time into the night. Don't hesitate to buy it if the relationship between you and your pillow have been heating up lately!!"

    Patrick C. in Seattle, Washington
       "I bought the Soft Ice® Cooling Pillowcase. I am 48 and have a heat tolerance issue. I sweat very bad at night and would wake up 2 or 3 times in the night so hot I could not sleep. I bought the Soft Ice Pillowcase and it made me cool all night. I don't wake up like I used to. If you have night sweats buy this it will change the way you sleep."

      Post-Surgery
      "Just completed total knee replacement surgery. This is the ice pack I could find that would fit around total knee except under the knee. Works great."
    - Fred C. in Trinity, Florida
      "I just had knee surgery and the Active Ice® System was a lifesaver! It worked wonderfully well! I would recommend it to anyone having surgery!" 
    - John
      "I recently had knee surgery and have swelling from my thigh to my ankle. I am using the Active Ice® System and it has been very helpful in keeping the swelling down and pain to a minimum. This is a very excellent product. Even the instructions were easy to understand. Thank you very much!" 
    - Lawrence in Longwood, Florida

    "My recovery from dual knee surgeries would have taken considerably longer without this unit [AIST-D]. This is indispensable for anyone recovering from this type of trauma. If you can manage the inflammation, you can better manage your recovery."
    - Steven in Ohio
      "Following knee replacement surgery I developed an MRSA infection. The doctor recommended I get a circulating cold water system. After research I purchased the Polar AIS unit. This has been an excellent purchase! The Polar AIS helped keep the swelling down and reduce site inflammation The doctor said it helped get me back on my feet 2 months earlier than expected."
    - Ken in Ohio
      "My knee has a defect that has been lifelong, although I ski raced in college, volunteer ski patrol now and am very active I recently had ligament reconstruction surgery to correct the issue. I could not have made it this far with range of motion, swelling reduction and overall comfort without your Active Ice® therapy system. I want to thank all of your employees and let you know how much this system has helped me."
    - Paulette in Pennsylvania
      "This is the second machine[Polar AIS] I've purchased for post surgery cold therapy. Years ago I used one for my knee and this time for post hernia surgery. It let me be independent and not need someone to get me ice every hour."
    - Jeffrey in Ohio
      "Thank you so much!!!!!! I got my ice pack cooler [Polar AIS]for post rotator cuff surgery. My only wish is that it made it's own ice, lol. I am a therapist but haven't worked with rehab in years. This little gem is my fave thing ever! lol. I am telling everyone about it! I love the timer too. Helps when I have slept during icing my shoulder. You are all great! Thank you for a fantastic product! "
    - Lori L
      "Order the Shoulder Wrap before I had Rotator Cuff Surgery and used it before the surgery to cut down on swelling. After surgery it worked great to reduce swelling. I had 3 tendons re-attached to the rotator cuff and swelling was minimal due to the ice pack. I would also recommend getting two additional ice pack inserts so you can swap when needed"

      Pregnancy
      "I just wanted to say thank you to Polar for getting me through the hot days of summer. I am 8 1/2 months pregnant and the [Kool Max® Ankle & Foot Wraps][Kool Max® Cooling Neck and Head Wrap] and [Kool Max® Poncho Vest] KMV have all been life savers in keeping me cool as well as reducing swelling. I highly recommend all of these products for expectant mothers or anyone who suffers from heat or swelling of the extremities. Keep up the great work!" 
    - S. in Akron, Ohio
      "I cannot believe [Kool Max® Deluxe Cooling Neck Ties] are not on "must-have" lists for pregnant women. It seriously saved me from feeling like I was going to die of heat at least 3 times this week (despite the fact that it's the middle of winter)... Its best feature is its flexibility. It doesn't have to just go around your neck. Sometimes I wrap it around my head. Other times I put it under my breasts. Sometimes I just hold it... I can't imagine going through pregnancy without it."

We ordered your Kool Max® Cooling Ankle & Foot Wraps almost two months ago now and it really does wonders for helping control her pain while she is out of the house. I can't rave enough on how much of a difference these ice packs have made!"

I have the fashion vest, I have the scarf, the neck and upper spine wrap- ALL KOOL MAX® PRODUCTS from you guys, which OMG, have changed my life! I actually lent my neck wrap to my cousin who works on the summer beaches as a Marine Patrol Officer (both land and sea) and now he is ordering from your company as well. Your vest is amazing. I added a Medic Alert Charm to the zipper pull as I have to explain to everyone why I am wearing a vest in the summer."

        Epilepsy
      "As if having epilepsy and an extremely rare brain disorder were not enough to overcome in life, Kaylee doesn't sweat due to a combination of her epilepsy medications and brain disorder. This makes even being in a hot room too much for her, placing her at risk of overheating and reducing her seizure threshold. Imagine Disney in June! Well, thanks to the Cool Kids Toddler Cooling Vest from Polar Products we not only imagined, we conquered. Whether it was meeting some of her favorite princesses, hanging out with her family, or even riding roller coasters, her cooling vest was there! Easy refreezing with only ice and water made keeping her cool a piece of cake! Armed with an extra set of ice packs and the amazing flexibility to provide free ice water at Disney, we came, we saw, and we did everything that other peers her age can do! Thanks so much for such an awesome product!!"
    - Geri in KY

       "This is my 2 year old epileptic Harmonie. She would have to enjoy her summers indoors or cooler evening if she didn't get this wonderful cooling vest. She is able to play outside without a care in the world. Thank you so much for your extremely fast shipping and the amazing and kind service!"
