Why a Moist Heat Pack and not a heating pad? Moist heat is more effective in deeper tissue heating and penetrates more than dry heat at the same temperature. Ready for use after less than an hour in either the stove, microwave or other heating unit. Ideal for use in recovery post-injury and post-workout with a material that conforms to any body part and is pliable when heated. Highly recommended by physiotherapists, physicians, chiropractors, athletic trainers and kinesiologists. Moist Heat Packs are safe for adults and children and are easy to travel with. The heat packs are Latex-free.
Moist heat changes tissue temperature rapidly. Patients often report quicker relief from moist heat and moist heat has been proven to speed recovery by increasing blood flow to a specific area. The heat pack delivers up to 30 minutes of hot, moist, therapeutic relief. Once heated and ready to use, handle the pack by the corner tab. Be sure to wrap the heated pack in a towel or covering before use. Offering multiple benefits, they are ideal to help treat acute and chronic pain, relieve aches and ease soreness and stiffness. Relief Pak® Moist Heat Packs are designed for use at home or in multi-user environments like clinics, spas, gyms and training rooms.
Expected usage will dictate how to care and store the heat pack. If it’s expected the pack is going to be used for regular or frequent treatments, it should be kept in water, either in the heating unit or in a covered pot on the stove. If the pack is expected to be idle and stored for an extended period, it should be kept moist and cold. In those instances, place the wet pack in a plastic bag, seal it and store it in the freezer.
Relief Pak moist heat packs and covers are a simple and effective method of applying moist heat. The moist heat packs provides 30 minutes of therapeutic moist heat to soothe discomfort from stiff neck, backache, arthritis, sprains and bruises. The pack can be heated in water on a stove, in a microwave or in a heating unit. When treatment is complete, the pack can be stored for future use. Always apply moist heat pack with a Relief Pak cover or a heavy towel completely wrapped around the pack.
