Default medical chest ice device

I am looking for a device where one places ice and water in a small ice chest A motor in the ice chest then pumps ice water thru tubes to a cooling blanket that has been applied to such areas as knees, hips, the back or in my case a shoulder. bjwdk1@embarqmail.com

Have you asked a physical therapist? My son's doctor rigged one of these things up back in the '90s when he tore his ACL playing football in high school. I have heard that you can now buy them, but I don't know what they are called. I would think a PT would know, though. Good luck, I hope you find one. It really helped our son.

Google therapy ice unit, or therapy ice box. These units are excellent. I suggest that if a strap with velcro doesn't come with the one you order, buy one somewhere to hold the ice pad in place.

I rented one from OrthoCare (located inside Lake Centre for Rehab in Lake Sumter Landing) when I had my shoulder surgery. It cost me $60 for 2 weeks.

A friend just had a knee replacement and brought one home from the hospital. What a great device.

His is made by a company called Breg. Breg, Inc. – Remarkably Easy
It’s a blue plastic cube. He puts frozen water bottles in it with cold water. Stays cold for hours.

You may need a prescription from the doctor to rent one here. I did.
