On opening, the Robax HeatWrap with ThermaCare Technology reaches therapeutic temperature in 30 minutes or less – about 3º C above body temperature.
Apply Robax HeatWraps at the first stages of pain—early treatment can help keep the pain from interfering with your life.
HeatWraps can be used on various types of pain, including:
- Back aches
- Sore and tight muscles
- Sprains and strains
Note: Heat should not be used on areas of swelling and bruising. (If swelling occurs, use ice, and then apply heat after the swelling has gone away at least 48 hours.) Do not use for more than 8 hours in any 24-hour period. For best results, use as directed for the full 8 hours.
Ingredients: Activated charcoal, iron powder, sodium chloride, sodium thiosulfate, sodium polyacrolate, and water.
Warnings: This product can cause burns and skin irritation. Your risk of burning increases as you age. If you are 55 years of age or older, wear HeatWraps over a layer of clothing and not directly against your skin. Check skin frequently during use for signs of skin irritation or burns. Each heat cell contains iron (~2 grams), which can be harmful if ingested. If ingested, rinse mouth with water and call a poison control centre right away. If heat cell contents come in contact with your skin or eyes, rinse right away with water. Never heat product in microwave or attempt to reheat as heat wrap could catch fire. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
Stop use and ask a physician if you experience any discomfort, burning, swelling, rash, or other changes in your skin that persist where the wrap is worn. If after 7 days your pain gets worse or remains unchanged, this may be a sign of a more serious condition.
Ask a physician before use if you have DIABETES, poor circulation or heart disease, or rheumatoid arthritis, or you are pregnant.
