The “regular” heating pad for back pain that you can get from your local pharmacy uses thin metal wires or carbon fibre wires to create heat. This type of heat penetrates a mere 2-3 mm and basically only warms your skin (and in many cases burns it). The heat never reaches deep into your muscles, tissues or organs. This is exactly why any pain relief you feel disappears the minute your pad is shut off.
On the other hand, our Infrared heating pad uses a high-performance Polymeric rubber to emit infrared rays, which penetrate much deeper into your body (50mm) – all the way to your muscles, nerves and bones.
Our products can be run from a mobile phone charger or a 5v powerbank for on the move. Running costs are a fraction of Electric wired pads and will provide over 200 hours of safe penetrating heat for under 15pence. When far infrared waves penetrate through the skin it turns from light energy into heat energy. Using a far infrared heating pad for about 30 minutes can get you up to 6 hours (!!) of back pain relief – without any medication. Plus, the deep penetrating infrared rays do not only relieve your pain, they actually increase blood circulation in your muscles and help your body HEAL the injured area – faster.
