PolarCap® System is intended to reduce exercise induced elevated brain temperature to prevent or limit long term cognitive impairment after brain trauma.
Each year millions of athletes sustain concussive impacts to the head during sports. The consequences of these impacts often lead to prolonged and in many cases even persistent, chronic symptoms. Repetitive hits to the head can impair central nervous system function that lead to memory dysfunction, learning difficulties, balance disturbance, headache and sleeping problems. It is well known that elevated body temperature in combination with brain trauma leads to higher risk of serious and long-term brain damage as well as poorer cognitive results.
Physical activity can elevate the bodies temperature up to 38.5 - 41°C
During physical activity the brain’s metabolism, i.e. demand for oxygen and glucose, increases and decreases by 6- 10% for each °C change in body temperature
At time of elevated body and thus brain temperature a head impact may lead to an exacerbated brain injury, in comparison if the injury is sustained at normal brain temperature.
Brain cooling has been shown to reduce many negative consequences involved with brain trauma in combination with elevated brain temperature.

HOW DOES POLARCAP®
PolarCap® System is a portable cooling system with a patented silicone-based HeadCap. It should be used for a minimum of 45 minutes directly after a diagnosed concussion.
PolarCap® System is a portable cooling device with a patened silicone-based headcap. It should be used for a minimum of 45 minutes in the acute phase after a brain injury.
Clinical studies with PolarCap® System have shown that treated players have an almost 80% reduction in the risk of long-term absence (3 weeks or more), a statisticially significant effect.
