What it is:
The Thermotex Platinum Therapy System produces infrared heating to help provide deep, penetrating warmth for temporary relief of acute and chronic pain. Not your ordinary heating pad, this convenient therapy system helps treat the source of your pain, not just the symptoms. It can be used at home, in the office, while driving (using a power inverter) or on vacation to help provide temporary pain relief whenever you need it.

Who it is for:
The Platinum Therapy System is ideal for those who want temporary relief from minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness, joint pain associated with arthritis, muscle spasms, minor strains and sprains, and minor muscular back pain. It can be used by almost anyone, anywhere and on any part of the body.

What it does:
The Platinum Therapy System is used to help treat muscle and joint pain with deep penetrating heat that safely and gently heats the muscle tissue layer from the inside out. The three element design allows for "wrappability" around a limb, or flat use on the back or stomach area. The infrared pads help deliver a superior amount of infrared light to the treatment area. Your body's natural response to this increased temperature is to maintain a condition of homeostasis—a balanced environment or state of equilibrium throughout the body. To do this, your body responds with an increase in blood flow to the treated area, thanks to the absorption of infrared thermal energy. The depth of penetration is measured as approximately 6cm/2.3 inches after just 20 minutes of use. Traditional heating pads provide conductive heat that only penetrates 2-3mm, which can also burn and dehydrate the skin

Did not work for me

The heating element did not heat up for me - warm was about as good as it got. NO DEEP HEAT - I am returning it

Great therapeutic system

By Cheryl

from Toronto

Silver Reviewer

My Anesthetist Pain Management Dr. recommended me this for my back pain caused by herniated discs with nerve impingement in my lumbar spine.

After using this platinum infrared heating pad my MRI results were much improved.

I have been using this pad for 6 years and would never use a heating pad as this pad doesn't burn your skin yet penetrates almost 2-1/2" into the muscles and nerves to provide increase circulation and pain relief. The platinum is flexible and wraps around back or knee or arm. The gold pad is rigid but just as effective. Great buy!Thanks Thermotex

Thank you Thermotex!

By Triple7

from Toronto

I used to have to go to therapy for my neck and shoulders every week. Since I bought this product I don't have to go anymore. I use it as soon as I start to feel some tension, but sometimes even the night before I know I will be doing heavy physical activity. It works wonders for me, and I can' live without it!

Use every day

By DJ

from Cochrane, On

Bronze Reviewer

I use my heating unit every evening and it is very helpful with my condition (pelvic congestion syndrome). Not a miracle cure but helps more than a normal heating pad did. It is a expensive product and glad I bought it on sale, but does what I wanted and expected it to.

Didn't work for me

By Bayla1957

from Montreal, Quebec

I bought this based on the positive comments this apparatus received because as one reviewer stated, when you have pain you'll try anything to get rid of it. Unfortu ately, the Thermotex Platinum System did not work for me. I used it several times a day as outlined in their manual over a 3 week period and got no relief whatsoever. It felt good while it was on my arm, though it is very bulky and stiff, but the second I turned it off, the pain was still there. And you would think that for the price it would have a timer and perhaps an automatic turn off option. Happy to say I sent it back to TSC yesterday.

Did nothing for my problem

By Lorraine

from Red Deer, AB

Silver Reviewer

I got this hoping it would help chronic pain in my hip and thigh. But I get more relief from my hot water bottle. I found it did not get very warm and I would forget to turn the dial to the lower setting. It would be better if it had an auto shut off, then you could use it when napping or sleeping. It did not work for me but I would urge others with chronic pain to give it a try.

Hopes not realized...again

By Ginger

from Victoria

I'd like to be among those who have testified in the affirmative about the efficacy of this product. I've used it often hoping that it could be an answer to pain and stiffness, of muscle tension or of inflammation, but to no avail. I receive more relief using a regular heating pad, and for the price of the Thermotex, I could have purchased enough of those for back, bottom, and one for each arm and leg. And they would have been flexible enough to be easily wrapped around the offending part. The things we fall for in search of pain relief!

Fantastic product!!!

By Tigars

from sherbrooke, Quebec

I purchased the Thermotex Platinum a little while ago and found it helped immediatly. I use it on my lower back from a fall a few years ago ( I am using it as I writing this at my desk)I also use it on a bad left knee and on my hands for arthritis pain. I have used regular heat pads and this product is not even in the same league. I have recommended it to friends and are ordering it or will in the near future after trying mine. Would not live without it. Thanks for offering it.

NOT FOR ME

By Karen

from Toronto

I'm one of those people who will try anything for pain management. Unfortunately this product did not do it for me. I found the pad uncomfortable, because it was firm it actually felt like it was creating more discomfort. The heating element did not heat up, warm was about as good as it got. NO DEEP HEAT HERE!! For myself I find warm to hot baths work way better for my pain. Overall I think it's great that it's helping others, but not this girl.. I returned it. Sorry TSC, this product was a BOMB for me.
