Thermal-Aid is a revolutionary, 100% natural therapeutic heating/cooling treatment pack specifically designed for the medical field, to reduce swelling and relieve pain.
Their researchers worked closely with milling engineers from the largest agribusiness companies in the world to create a line of products, using a unique process which allows a specialized corn to hold temperatures for long periods of time. This process removes the germ from the kernel, thus removing virtually all the moisture and preventing mold or fungi from forming. The entire process hardens the corn segments, causing an even temperature in each segment, and creating extended temperature retainment (hot and cold). This also extends the life of the corn beyond that of the material it’s sewn into!
Indications: Arthritis, back pain, muscle soreness, menstrual cramps, neck pain, carpal tunnel, headaches, and migraines, sprains/strains, sunburn, fever, stomach aches and flu symptoms, bug bites, lactation, babies with colic (under adult supervision), multiple sclerosis and growing pains.
Ingredients: Natural Cotton and a heating/cooling element composed of a specially engineered corn.
*Do not use by individuals with corn allergies.
Thermal-Aid recently sent us their 100% Natural Heating and Cooling Medium Sectional Pack and Bear to try out for ourselves. Right away, I put them both in the freeze to see how long they would take to get cold.
The Thermal-Aid Medium Sectional Pack was completely cold and ready to use within 5 hours and stayed cold for a few hours after being removed from the freezer. This was so impressive to me, as many other cold packs I have purchased in the past, would only stay cold for about an hour.
We loved that it is large enough to cover areas like shoulders, backs, and hips, giving the full coverage needed when sore. My husband is always pulling muscles at work, and he really enjoyed the comfort of the 'corn elements' inside, as he was able to lay his shoulder on the pack without it feeling like he was laying on a rock.
Heating the Thermal-Aid Medium Sectional Pack was a breeze. It microwaves quickly for a warm and comforting relief, without having cords continually getting in the way.
I was also impressed with the Medium Sectional as it is the only green heating and cooling pack that you can clean with soap and water, and it won’t form mold or fungi. Which means it will last much longer than other products, and we won't have to worry about that 'smell' most heating and cooling products end up developing over time.
The Thermal-Aid 100% Natural Heating and Cooling Bear, recommended for ages 3+, was also completely cold within 5 hours, and stayed cold for about 2 hours. My daughter loved how soft and cuddly the bear was, and liked the idea of the bear being the ice pack, as other ice packs are 'too hard' for her.
I really liked that microwaving the bear only takes about a minute (use under close watch with children), which will be great should she need relief from earaches or growing pains. But I think most of all, I love that the bear is also washable. Kids spread germs to the things they touch, and knowing that I can just wash the germs right off for continual use, just proves to me that Thermal-Aid really thought about their products while creating them. The Heating and Cooling Bears are available in many colors, so each child can have their own special bear to cuddle.
So if you're looking for 100% natural heating and cooling products, that can be cleaned easily and work wonderfully, I completely recommend Thermal-Aid. They truly understand what we are looking for and provide products with today's consumer in mind.
