Coldtub designs and manufactures cold water therapy products. (aka cryotherapy, cold water immersion, balneotherapy, hydrotherapy) Our flagship product, the PolarPool™ cold tub was inspired by Don DelNegro, head Athletic Trainer for the Boston Bruins hockey team, as he searched for a better alternative to common steel whirlpools for his athletes. Don, like many other trainers, was concerned about the safety, sanitization, size, chemical maintenance, and set up time required by traditional cold water tanks.
Our paths crossed and visions joined to create the solution. The PolarPool™ cold tub was created and has now exploded onto the professional and collegiate athletic training scene. Since the Boston Bruins hockey team purchased the first PolarPool™ cold tub, many other organizations have followed suit; the San Jose Sharks, the University of Florida Gators, Yale hockey, Penn State hockey, Bowdoin College, the Universtiy of Massachusetts, Utah State University, the Atlanta Thrashers, the University of Portland, Springfield College, Gustavus Adolphus College, the Rochester Institute of Technology, and more every day.
The PolorPool™ cold tub is rapidly becoming the must-have piece of equipment for competitive sport organizations. Enhancing performance with cold-water therapy is not a new technique. However, the unique way this modality is delivered by ColdTub™ and PolarPool™ is.
The incredible benefits can be realized by anybody who seeks high levels of physical performance, faster recovery, and rapid rehabilitation. So far, professional sport teams, college sport departments, physical therapists, sports medicine facilities, hospital-based rehab clinics, and military training facilities are utilizing the PolarPool™ cold tub, or some type of ice bath, cryotherapy tub, or cold water immersion tank.
The extremely compact size and portability make it suitable even for recreational athletes who simply want to recover rapidly from their sport so they can get back out there doing what they love faster, healthier, and with less pain.
