The Christmas of 1985, my mother-in-law gave us a 14" x 27" Thermophore. It saw much use ...
The built in hand held switch guarantees you will get penetrating moist heat as long as you want it while you depress the switch. The safety factor in this is simple but it works! Great localized heat, right where you want it.
Consumer Notice: this model requires the user to hold the switch down in order for the heating pad to operate.
Hold button down to start moist heat. Let go and it turns off.
Designed for smaller areas such as a shoulder, knee or part of the abdomen. Also great for back or hip of some of our smaller, more petite users, and many customers prefer this size to take along when they travel.
Original Thermophore Automatic Moist Heat Pack is designed with a special hand-held switch. Just press for heat, release to cool and alternate as often as you like. If you happen to doze off and your hand relaxes, the unit will cool as a safety feature.Battle Creek Equipment
