The Polar Care Kodiak Cold Therapy Unit

Posted by Roman Torn at

Although the application of cold has been used for centuries to treat pain and swelling, it is the method of application that has recently made it more safe, effective and patient friendly. The easy to use Kodiak cold therapy system optimizes the application of cold to the treatment area through its temperature regulated intelli-flo pads, delivering deep penetrating moderated cold safely to the affected joint or body region. With its safety features, the Kodiak Cold therapy system can be used continuously for many hours unlike ice or other cold therapy systems that do not control temperature effectively and can potentially cause skin injury.

Main improvements over conventional cold application methods

Kodiak Cold Therapy

  • The Kodiak Cold Therapy Unit quietly delivers continuous moderated cold water through limb specific cooling Intelli-flo pads. These easy to apply pads are clinically optimized to function at safe temperatures for prolonged periods of time allowing for cold to deeply penetrate the application area. The Kodiak Cold Therapy Unit will typically maintain its cold between 6-8 hours between ice changes allowing for easy and effective use without the inconveniences of traditional ice methods.

Compromises of Conventional Ice, gel packs

  • Ice, gel packs and frozen vegetables generally are a challenge to hold in place and administer intense cold over a small superficial area while only sustaining cold temperatures for a short period of time requiring frequent replacement trips to the freezer. The intense low temperatures of these options can also cause ice burn to sensitive skin, incision sites and areas that have compromised blood flow.

Patients choose the Kodiak Cold Therapy Unit for many potential benefits which include:

  • improved pain control / pain relief
  • improved inflammation/swelling suppression
