Doctors and physical therapists know that the intense, penetrating moist heat of Thermophore brand products is a convenient, effective way to give patients hours of soothing relief. Having a Thermophore of your own, to use at the first sign of pain, muscle spasm or stiffness, can often let you treat a minor problem before it has a chance to worsen and require professional attention.
While most Thermophore products are assembled it the USA, this model is made in China
To make the Thermophore Heating Pads more efficient, we have positioned weights to cause the Thermophore® packs to conform to body contours. This reduces air spaces between the Thermophore® hot pack and body, so more heat is transmitted to the body tissues. Ordinary stiff plastic heating pads leave air pockets, which result in an uneven transfer of heat.
Why not just buy an ordinary heating pad, instead of a Thermophore?
An ordinary heating pad is not hot enough to provide the same level of comfort and pain relief as the Thermophore®. Thermophore® Heat Packs are hot fomentation products and are viewed as a medical device by medical professionals.
An ordinary heating pad will keep you warm and help you begin to relax, but it will not penetrate deeply into tissue and will not be as effective as a Thermophore® Pack. If you suffer from pain that interferes with your life or keeps you from getting a good night's rest, you will be grateful that you invested in the comfort, pain relief and relaxation of a genuine Battle Creek® Thermophore® product
Why Moist Heat?
Moist heat tends to penetrate better because the water molds to the body and provides better heat transfer to the body. Moist heat has been shown to penetrate 27 times better than dry heat.
