What are the benefits of Heat Therapy?

  • Heat therapy dilates the blood vessels of the muscles . This process increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, helping to heal the damaged tissue and increase the elimination of carbon dioxide and metabolic waste.
  • Heat stimulates the sensory receptors in the skin, which means that applying heat to any part of the body, on both people and animals, will decrease transmissions of pain signals to the brain and partially relieve discomfort.
  • Heat therapy will decrease stiffness, increase flexibility and improve overall feeling of comfort. Especially around the saddle and poll area on horses and lower back and shoulders on people
  • The Heat Pad is excellent at aiding relaxation and reducing stress

What is the Heat Pad made from?

The Heat Pad has been made from a light weight super soft leatherette fabric combined with heat resistant insulation wadding to trap and reflect the heat back onto the muscles to sooth and relax them.

What does the Heat Pad Package include?

  • The Heat Pad (33cm*45cm)
  • A tough 600D polyester protective bag
  • 170 cm long neoprene waist belt (can be cut down or folded to size)
  • An elastic strap (surcingle)
  • If you wish to share with your horse adjust for yourself and/or your dog/cat.
  • A 12 volt smart lithium ion battery with four temperature settings
  • A charger

Is it safe to use?

Safety is paramount, the battery has a special built in thermostat to prevent it from over heating. If the battery becomes too warm then the battery itself will turn off automatically. The battery pack is mobile and can be moved from the heat pad onto the neoprene waist belt.

Temperature Guide:

Temperature will vary due to environmental conditions it is used in,

1. Red LED (47°c-49°c)-use on horses and animals with a thick coat. Peoples knees and other joints to provide pain relief (especially arthritis) - Approx lasts 2 hours

2. Orange LED (44°c-46°c)-use on peoples backs (consider using it over a thin t-shirt if you have sensitive skin to heat but can be used directly on the skin, just turn down if it feels too warm) and clipped out horses if red is too warm for them - Approx lasts 2.5 hours

4. Green LED (41°c-43°c)- use on peoples back and if a person wishes to lay down on the pad - Approx lasts 3.5 hours

5. Flashing Green LED (37°c-40°c)-same as green above just slightly cooler - Approx lasts 6 hours

This is just a rough guide, if used on yourself drop down a setting if too warm, if used on animals make sure they aren’t too warm by carrying out regular checks, never leave the pad unsupervised.
