Thermophore Moist Heat Pack Units are one of the most popular sources of therapeutic heat in the home. These hot packs are moist, safe, convenient, and are available in various sizes. Moist heat is more effective than dry heat because moisture transmits heat better than air. The Thermophore Hot Pack has an outer fleece blend cover that draws humidity from the air and retains it. Then when the heat is turned on, the moisture is forced out of the fleece blend and onto the treated area. 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.
Original Thermophore Automatic Moist Heat Pack is designed with a special hand-held switch. Just press for heat, release to cool and alternate as often as you like. If you happen to doze off and your hand relaxes, the unit will cool as a safety feature.
