Surgeons and their staff are staying comfortable during procedures in hot operating rooms thanks to cooling vests made specifically for surgeons by Akron’s Polar Products, Inc. The Ohio company has developed a new heavy-duty vest style for their popular Cool Flow™ System, specifically designed for wear beneath lead aprons.
Polar Products, Inc., a family-owned business with manufacturing based in Akron, OH, has increased production and expanded the vest selection of their Cool Flow™ System due to high demand from hospitals across the country. The vest is just one of many specialty O.R. cooling products manufactured and distributed by Polar.
The Cool Flow™ Vest System provides cooling comfort during long surgeries. Ice water continuously circulates from a 15 quart cooling reservoir through insulated tubing sewn within the vest. High flow, quick-disconnect couplings allow freedom of movement as needed.
The Heavy-Duty Cool Flow™ Vest is made with extra strength tubing compared to other styles of surgical cooling vests. Its higher flow rate and tougher walled tubing allow it to endure heavier wear, such as beneath lead aprons or under protective clothing.
This year, Polar launched CoolOR, a complete line of cost-effective surgical products for the entire surgical team. In addition to the Cool Flow™ System, the company manufactures non-tethered vests and neck wraps, which use water-based cooling packs that require a freezer to be activated as well as phase
change packs that can be recharged in a refrigerator or ice water. Polar offers a free 30-day trial program to hospitals for all cooling vest systems.
