Polar's easy-to-use cooling systems improve efficiency and increase worker safety and comfort.

|Acute injuries are usually the result a single, traumatic episode. Overuse injuries (chronic pain) are more subtle and usually occur over time. These injuries will more often stem from the stress that the athlete puts on the body.
A good rule of thumb is cold therapy for acute pain, moist heat or heat for chronic pain. Often, moist heat therapy is used prior to an activity to loosen up muscles and cold therapy afterward.
