Therabeads moist heat
no soaking! no boiling!
Patented process draws moisture from the air. Soft, form-fitting shapes -- comfortable, snug fit. Therabeads products stay warm for about 15-20 minutes.
Therabeads moist heat products consist of tiny hydroscopic beads mixed with a proprietary fluid that enhances their ability to capture moisture.
When heated in a clean microwave oven, Therabeads release their retained moisture to provide pain-relieving therapeutic moist heat. Therabeads rejuvenate themselves by recovering moisture from ambient air. (For best results, Therabeads need a 2-hour rest period between heatings.) With proper care, Therabeads can be used indefinitely. NOTE: Be sure your microwave is thoroughly clean! Food residues or spilled liquids can contaminate your Therabeads product, causing it to develop hot spots.
NOTE: Persons with diabetic or circulatory condition should take particular care to test temperature of the Therabeads product before use. For serious acute pain or persistent chronic pain, it is always best to consult a physician.
