IceMan Cold Therapy Unit for TKR

Posted , 5 users are following.

How many of you used the Iceman Cold Therapy Unit after your TKR? It is made by DJO and not covered by insurance. It combines focused compression with cold therapy. I did not use it.....I just alternated ice packs when needed.

    I was given a similar unit for home use when I left the hospital.  Love it.  It is now 13 weeks post TKR and I still use it.

    I was supplied a similar unit called Polar Pack. It was great and I still use it....plus my insurance covered the cost for it too!

    I did not but my sister did. Her recovery was much faster than mine has been. I used ice packs every hour for 4 weeks. She loved the machine. I don't know if that made the difference but I am still struggling 6 weeks out tkr. She went back to work at 6 weeks. It's exhausting for me to get myself ready for pt.
