Thermophore Automatic Moist Heat PackThermophore produces intense, moist heat for faster relief
The application of moist heat is a commonly prescribed therapy in medical practice today, and the Thermophore Moist Heat Pack is the method physicians' recommend most often. Moist heat increases circulation and speeds recovery by bringing in fresh blood cells and taking away the wastes, which may hinder healing. These beneficial results continue for several hours after treatment. The application of moist heat, known as fomentation, is especially useful in treating back pain caused by muscle spasms from strain and tension. The Thermophore Moist Heat Pack and rest will gradually relax the muscle in spasm, restoring its normal length and relieving pain. The moisture produced by the Thermophore Moist Heat Pack transfers the high heat deeper into tissues than an ordinary dry heat pad. Arthritic and rheumatic pain is often temporarily relieved with the use of moist heat. The increased blood flow can relieve the inflamed joints and help maintain flexibility.
No water needed. Thermophore produces its own moisture. The Thermophore Moist Heat Pack produces moist heat automatically by drawing moisture from humidity in the air and retaining it in the hot pack's outer flannel cover. The rapid heat rise occurring when the hot pack is turned on forces the moisture out of the flannel onto the patient's skin, speeding temporary relief to the treated area.
Intense, moist heat makes Thermophore better. The Thermophore Moist Heat Pack is more effective than other electric heating pads on the market because it delivers very intense, moist heat. The patient controls the temperature of the hot pack with the momentary switch (powered when held down) for better heat control. The hand-held momentary switch, turns the hot pack on and off, and allows the user to maintain the highest temperature possible. Thermophore Moist Heat Packs should be used at the first sign of muscle spasm or joint pain. A Thermophore Moist Heat Pack treatment is especially useful to help temporarily relieve pain caused by muscle spasm or inflammation after a day of recreation, gardening, jogging or household chores. The max temperature goes up to 180 Degrees Fahrenheit (Unit only has one temperature setting). Comes with a 1 year warranty.

This one has the toggle that has to be held down. My relative hates it. It also is uneven with the heat. It is back in the box stored away. Try BodyMed heating pads for one with a timer and exact temperature settings.
