The Theratherm digital moist heat pack – Large (14″ x 27″) provides intense, moist heat therapy for much needed relief from pain associated with arthritis, muscles spasms (such as back spasms), tension, and sub-acute sprains and strains.
Its flannel cover draws moisture from the air and as the pack’s temperature rises, the moist heat is released onto your skin, giving soothing relief to the aggravated area. Its unique, easy-to-use digital control is convenient and safe.
The application of moist heat is a routinely prescribed therapy in today’s medical field. The body’s physiological response to moist heat is dilation of the blood vessels, causing an increase in the blood flow to the area under treatment. Increased local circulation enhances recovery by flushing away the waste products and bringing in fresh blood cells to the treatment area. Moist heat is exceptionally useful in treating back pain caused by muscle spasms from strain and tension. The pain of arthritic and musculoskeletal conditions can be temporarily alleviated with the use of
moist heat therapy. The increased blood flow can help relax muscles in spasm and help maintain joint and muscle
flexibility. Along with rest, the Theratherm Digital Moist Heating Pad will gradually relieve pain by relaxing a muscle in
spasm. Theratherm treatment is also efficient in relieving pain caused by muscle spasm or inflammation after a day of
recreation, gardening, jogging or household activities.
The Theratherm Digital Moist Heating Pad produces moist heat automatically. There is no water to add, no water to boil,
no dripping packs and no towels to prepare. Moisture is drawn from the humidity in the air and retained in the outer
flannel cover. When the hot pack is turned on, the rapid heat rise forces the moisture out of the flannel cover onto the
patient’s skin. The moisture acts only as a means to transmit heat more deeply into the tissue, so only a small amount
The Theratherm Digital Moist Heating Pad is more effective than other electric heating pads on the market because it
delivers intense moist heat therapy. The moist heating pad expands the size of the blood vessels, increasing blood flow.
The temperature of the heating pad is controlled by the patient with a digital controller that can be turned on and off.
The digital controller is also used to set the treatment time and features a lock-out mode to guard against remiss
touching of the controls during treatment.
