Benefits and Features of the Active Ice® 3.0 Cold Therapy System

People Using the Active Ice 3.0 Cold Therapy Systems

The Design:

  • Specifically designed to deliver drug-free pain relief after injury or post-surgery, when serious pain relief is required!
  • Whisper-quiet, high-efficiency pump circulates cold water throughout the therapy pad.
  • Customize your cold therapy on and off cycles with the patent-pending programmable digital timer.
  • Our cooling reservoirs will hold more ice or frozen water bottles than competitors, which will lengthen the duration of cold therapy before needing to add more ice or swapping out your frozen water bottles. With twice the reservoir size allowing for twice the ice/frozen water bottle capacity as our biggest competitors, Active Ice® will get you through the night!
  • Try frozen water bottles instead of ice! Our large cooling reservoirs allow for the use of frozen water bottles which is an easy and convenient alternative to ice. They are reusable and can be easily swapped out with an extra set from the freezer once thawed, eliminating the need to drain melted water. This is also a big help for the caregiver. The 9-quart cooling reservoir holds up to six (6) 500 ml frozen water bottles and the 16-quart cooling reservoir holds up to twelve (12) 500 ml frozen water bottles.
  • Convenient on/off button on the programmable digital timer eliminates any potential danger from fumbling in the dark to plug-in or unplug your system.
  • The cooler lid on the system is hinged and snaps in place, keeping it properly sealed. No mess!
  • The therapy pad is optimized to provide comfortable cold therapy to the desired body part while providing gentle compression. The insulated outer fabric directs maximum cold therapy to the target area.
  • Comfortable and easy to reuse time and time again; simply add ice and water to the cooler!
  • High-flow, dry, quick-disconnect couplings allow for freedom of movement, if needed.

The Timer:

A critical safety feature! The patent-pending programmable digital timer allows the system to be set specifically per your healthcare providers' recommendation. The user can set custom "on" and "off" times. Examples include (but are not limited to) setting our system to cycle throughout the night with 20 minutes on and then 40 minutes off, or on for just 30 minutes and then shut off. For instructions on how to use the programmable digital timer, please refer to your Active Ice® 3.0 Cold Therapy System instruction manual
Digital Programmable Timer & Temperature Flow Control

"It is now post-surgery and the device is my ever-present helper, I also love that I can set the on off sequence by 10-minute increments to virtually anything I would want. 30 on 30 off is one of the recommendations on the web but I have typically used 10 on 10 off although I love that I can change it as pain either increases or decreases. 1 1/2 weeks after surgery I'm using more like 10 on and 20 off since the pain has begun to subside. Absolutely fantastic customer service, this is a great product and terrific company" - Bill in Arizona

"Great product"

on 1/11/2023 11:10:42 AM

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star

Details: What a great product. My wife had a foot operation and needed to ice it a lot to keep the swelling down. It is a pain to keep freezing gel packs. This eliminates that. Freeze a few water bottles, put them in the ice chest with water and you are good to go. I rated it a 5 but it's clearly a 10 for us.

"Cooling But No Air Compression"

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Full Star

Details: This product does a great job of providing cold therapy to the body but does not provide air compression. If you are looking for something to deliver cold therapy, this is your product. If you are looking for something to deliver cold therapy and air compression simultaneously, this isn't it.

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star

Details: I purchased the polar unit with the foot therapy pad, but my doctor said that I wouldn’t feel the cold because she is putting a partial cast on the foot. She said instead to get a "bladder.” I showed her all the therapy pads available from your company and she selected the one I just ordered this morning. Thank goodness. I don’t know how I’d get through recovery without my Polar cooling machine. I put the Polar through a test run (my surgery is scheduled for 11/14) and am very impressed with h... More details

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Full Star

Details: I purchased the foot cold therapy system after I had surgery to repair a broken heel on my left foot. For anyone who is planning to have this same surgery, I'd caution that you may not be able to use this system until after your post-surgery splint and heavy wrap are removed. I can only get my foot in the therapy boot with a light ankle wrap and a thin sock to protect my toes. The people at Polar Products had warned me about the opening of the boot, so they seem aware of this also. However, this... More details

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star

Details: This product and all the accessories I bought (b/c I did not know what to buy!) are exception and have truly helped me as I recover from 3 surgery procedures at one time on one foot. Digital timer is EXCELLENT. Small compact. Very quiet operation. The only concern I had (past tense) was the foot bladder seemed to leak a bit. Called customer service. Not only are they sending a replacement, but also gave me a quick tip on how to cut/make the foot bladder more effective!

Details: I am having major foot surgery on March 1st and asked my doctor if I can bring the foot bladder with me. I know from experience of my son’s foot surgery that you want the bladder under the layers of ace bandages to be most effective. I did this for a hand surgery and my recovery time was remarkable. I have had many surgeries, feet, back, hand and hip and using the Polar Ice machine gives me added comfort to speed my recovery each time. I put a thick wash cloth under the motor to make it quieter ... More details

Details: I just had a bunion removal this morning. I bought the regular size boot. I wear a size 9-1/2 shoe, and can fit my foot into boot just fine with bandage wrap and sock. It has worked great all day! A little trick from a friend: freeze 4 water bottles, and use two at a time in the cooler with water. Change out as needed. No messy fuss with ice cubes.

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star

Details: I bought this with the entire system for icing my foot after foot surgery (bunionectomy, big toe fusion, and second metatarsal remodeling). I was concerned that the universal bladder wouldn't work well for the foot. While I haven't tried the universal bladder for my foot, this bladder does work well for the toe region of the foot and I believe would be stellar for the ankle portion (even more so). I bought the large but didn't really need it - it is a little big for my purpose but oh well. The e... More details
