The application of prolonged heat to the affected area is a simple and rapid form of treatment. Heat promotes healing by the:
Promotion of increased blood flow, which facilitates the removal of cellular debris.
Provides light but firm compression to counteract tissue swelling.
Promotion of optimal muscle function; at 1Â°C higher than the body's normal resting temperature.
Increases elasticity and reactivity of the muscle, so after its application the collagen fibres become more extensible and capable of rehabilitation exercises. Thermoskin has been clinically tested to increase skin and subcutaneous (below the skin) temperature by up to 1.8Â°C.
Provides temporary relief from pain/soreness associated with sports injuries, arthritis and RSI.
Proprioception (support); implies perception of correct body position.
Allows your skin to ventilate and remain well oxygenated for extended periods.
