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, and not just the symptoms. It can be used at home, in the office, while driving (using a power inverter, not included) 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, minor muscular back pain, muscular relaxation and the temporary increase of local circulation where applied. 

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. This three-element pad is ideal for treating any part of the body. This 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 FAR infrared light to the treatment area. Through the absorption of infrared thermal energy, tissues are safely and gently heated, resulting in increased blood flow within 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. Thermotex therapy pads produce a radiant light wave that is absorbed deeply into the body resulting in stimulation of blood flow.

• Thermotex is a proudly Canadian brand
• This product is top rated by The Shopping Channel customers
• It is used by professional athletes and Olympians for prevention and recovery of injury

Could Be Better

By Crystal

from FORT ERIE

All Star Reviewer

I previously bought the Gold Edition, and I like it except that it doesn't bend. Well, the Platinum does sort of bend, but the heating surface area of each pad is really small, and the temperature doesn't get as warm. I'm not sure if it is defective or if the temperature is lower by design. Only the middle of each of the three elements gets any heat, but it is still better than nothing. I use both pads together, one on my back and one up higher for the neck and shoulder area. I'm sure they have kept me from seizing up with all the snow shovelling I've been doing in spite of chronic pain in these areas. Anything that keeps me moving is a help and this product helps a lot.
The company stands behind their product from my experience. There was a problem with the switch on the Gold pad and the company was excellent to deal with. They even sent e refund for the postage I paid to send it for repair.

I love this!

By Antelope

from Vancouver, BC

I bought 4 of these at Christmas. One for me and the others for my son's and my friend. We all have problems that these have helped. My friend has chronic lower back pain that he says is not a problem anymore. He sits at a computer all day at work and then comes home to sit at one. He now wants to buy another to keep at work. I have lower back pain that this has helped.

did not help at all

By Nelly

from Toronto

Gold Reviewer

Followed the directions I have fibromyagia and chronic pain everywhere. I taped and watched over and over before using. Another product for not a severe did-ease but rather for those minor aches and pain. I have terrible pain on my toe and knees and this did not even roll properly so to distribute the heat. So stiff and not ergonomical to manurve I give up don't have a money tree but so desparate to find help with some pain relief
Two stars because its a great heat pad and that is it Did not help with lower back injury nor with frozen shoulder nor with surgery on toe. i would recommend for those parents who have young todlers or children as the heat is somewhat relaxing if fighting flu or cold. I wrap my cocker on his back to give relief to his back when he chases balls for hours. what a world..people forget karma

I so wanted to love this!

By TSC Shopper

from Regina

Bronze Reviewer

I used this product for about 10 days. My main disappointment was the heat didn't seem consistent. It was either scorching on high or barely warm on low. I just felt it wasn't heating properly at all. After a trial period it just wasn't good enough for the money and I had no pain relief whatsoever. The product does look well made and I liked the flexibility and how it could conform to different body areas. If the heat aspect would have been better I think it could be a winner.

Lifesaver

By Courtenay-Dawn

from Tisdale Saskatchewan

I bought the Thermotex very sceptically last winter. I suffer from Chronic pain in my shoulder. I have had 4 surgeries and am in line for my 5th surgery on the same shoulder. I am 37 and the mother of 5 plus i work full time. My pain is so life consuming that there are days I literally cannot get out of bed without a large dose or narcotics. When i bought the heating pad i was pleasantly surprised at how it works. IT heats up quickly and the heat is so wonderful. I literally sleep on this pad every night with it wrapped around my arm or under my shoulder. I take it to work where i pass it around to anyone with an ache, it warms you to the core and the relief is so wonderful. You can feel the heat in your whole body. Such a wonderful comfort. I literally have used the heat pad every single day since i bought it. I still use my pain meds but not as many and I find this extremely helpful. Thank you!

By Kingsley

from Burnaby, BC

I purchased this last year for myself and love it! I have used it for my back, hips, legs, ankle, arms, etc. It heats quickly and does a great job of relaxing sore muscles. I'm buying one for my Mother this time around.

Great product

By MARIA

from SCARBOROUGH

Helpful Reviewer

I purchased my Thermotex 1.5 year ago. One of the unit did not heat up; therefore I called the company. Next day I received a new one sent by express mail. The director of the company called for follow up if I received it. She told me that I don't have to rush to return the other one just when I feel better because I fight cancer. What a great customer service. I suffer from lot of pain due to chemotherapy and other pain caused by cancer. This is an excellent product to reduce the pain naturally. Also, I read an article from a Japanese doctor that 20 years ago he had 4 stage cancer and he used infrared pad to fight his cancer. Today, he is still alive. I use my pad every day. Thank you Thermorex.

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
