Guide to Using the Hand & Wrist Pad for the Breg Cube Supply Physical Therapy

In a recent training video, Steve and Michelle from Supply have taken the time to demystify the process of using the wrist pad for the Breg Polar Care Cube, specifically focusing on the hand and wrist pad. This comprehensive guide is a boon for anyone looking to alleviate pain and swelling effectively and safely.

The Importance of Correct Pad Selection

One of the key takeaways from their training is the emphasis on selecting the correct pad and part number. Michelle points out that this crucial step is often overlooked, but it's essential for ensuring effective treatment. She advises viewers to check the part number on the pad's label, ensuring compatibility with their specific needs.

Skin Safety During Cold Therapy

Another significant aspect highlighted by Michelle is skin safety. Cold therapy, while beneficial, can be harmful if not administered correctly. She stresses the importance of never placing the cold pad directly on the skin to avoid damage or frostbite. To aid in this, they offer sterile dressings for each cold therapy pad on their website, which can be used as a protective layer between the skin and the pad.

Step-by-Step Application Process

The video shines in its step-by-step demonstration of applying the hand and wrist dressing. Viewers are guided through opening the sealed package, preparing the dressing, and attaching it securely to the body part. This detailed walkthrough is particularly helpful for those new to cold therapy, ensuring they can apply the pad correctly for maximum benefit.

A Handy Tip for Enhanced Convenience

Adding to the practicality of the session, Michelle shares a valuable tip to make the cold therapy experience more manageable. She introduces the concept of using freeze bags in the cooler, which can be rotated to maintain a consistent cold temperature. This tip is especially useful for individuals managing their therapy independently, simplifying the process and reducing the need for constant ice replenishment.

This training video by Steve and Michelle is a must-watch for anyone who uses or plans to use the Breg Polar Care Cube. It's an excellent blend of practical advice, safety tips, and user-friendly guidance, all aimed at making cold therapy a hassle-free and beneficial experience.
