THERMOTEX SYSTEMS

FDA-CLEARED INTENSE INFRARED HEAT THERAPY
FOR SUFFERERS OF MUSCLE AND JOINT PAIN

THEMOTEX SYSTEM

Thermotex™ is a convenient, portable therapy system that you can use at home, in the office, while driving or on vacation to provide effective temporary pain relief wherever and whenever you need it. Thermotex™ produces infrared heating to provide deep penetrating warmth for temporary relief of acute and chronic pain.

The Far Infrared light waves that Thermotex Therapy Systems produce are invisible. The energy produced is radiant (like visible light) and has been shown to be absorbed by the body up to 2.36 inches, raising body temperature resulting in an increased blood flow through vasodilation. The increased blood flow helps reduce inflammation and delivers an analgesic effect, resulting in pain relief.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THERMOTEX™?
What does Infrared do?
Through the absorption of infrared thermal energy, tissues are safely and gently heated increasing blood flow within the treated area. Your body’s natural response to this increased temperature is to try to maintain a condition of homeostasis—a balanced environment or state of equilibrium throughout the body. To do this, your body responds with a rapid increase in blood flow to the area.
Thermotex™ is the natural approach to effective pain relief

Comparisons
Conventional heating pads
Thermotex™ is a registered medical device with the US Food and Drug Administration, and has a Canadian Medical Device License (No. 33115).

Equine studies have shown therapy applications with thermal energy penetration of up to 2.36 inches. Heating pads, which provide topical conductive heat, only penetrate 2 - 3 mm. Depth of penetration substantiated in a study done by Dr. Ronald J. Riegel entitled "Thermotex Therapy System Infrared heating pad versus conventional heating pad and hot towel."

Thermotex™ infrared operates at temperatures of between 40C - 45C, versus heating pads that are often in excess of 55C. Our products will not burn or dehydrate the skin.

Pain medication therapy
Most pain medications simply disrupt the body's pain signals to the brain, masking the body's ability to recognize pain, rather than removing the source or cause of that pain. The effectiveness of Thermotex™ in reducing and controlling your pain will in most cases allow you to reduce your pain medication intake. Thermotex™ provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief with no side effects.
