The Relief Pak® HotSpot® Moist Heat Pack and cover is 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. You can heat the pack in water on a stove, in a microwave or in a heating unit such as a Hydrocollator. When treatment is complete, you can store the pack for future use.
Moist heat provides deeper tissue penetration than dry heat at comparable temperatures. It also produces a more rapid increase in tissue temperatures and will elicit a more powerful response from the body’s temperature receptors.
To protect the skin from scalding, always apply moist heat pack with a Relief Pak® cover or after wrapping a heavy towel completely around the pack.
