Product Description

The Thatcher Digital Moist Heating Pad, as opposed to dry forms of heat, draws moisture directly from the air. There is no water to add, no water to boil, no dripping packs and no towels to prepare. Moisture is drawn from the humidity in the air and retained in a specially designed 100% cotton cover. When the hot pack is turned on, the retained moisture is rapidly heated by high-grade ceramics, forcing the moisture out of the flannel cover onto the patient's skin, allowing deeper penetration of heat into the body's tissue. The moisture acts only as a means to transmit heat more deeply into the tissue, so only a small amount is needed. Thatcher, unlike all competitive products on the market, has a digital hand control allowing the operator to program the following parameters: treatment temperature, treatment time and on/off. Competitive units, including Thermosphere, require the operator to make continual contact with a single-loaded switch to generate and maintain heat from the pad. This is positioned as a safety feature. Thatcher has a conventional on/off control switch. Lockout mode protects against accidental changing of the control settings.

I purchased this pad because it was the only one that was compared in reviews in various places to professional therapeutic oven-heated pads.

The reviews were not exaggerating. I don't entirely understand how this pad does what it does, but the deep moist heat penetration is exactly what I have experienced from heated pads at the therapist. Nearly every time I have used this pad it has relaxed a nasty trouble spot within 20 minutes. My VERY WORST back spasm required two 30 minute sessions. Phenomenal.

The controls are wonderfully logical and idiot proof, the workmanship and design first-rate. AND IT WORKS.

No more buying semi-effective pads from department stores, pads that never really get the job done and fail in a year or so.

This is the ultimate pad, and I've tried quite a few.

I bought a Theratherm Moist Heat Pack for my wife, at the recommendation of a Physical Therapist friend, for her back pain. When it says "Moist Heat", it really means it. She can set it for a 30 minute session, and it really delivers moist heat, just like the moist heat packs in a Physical Therapy or Chiropractor's clinic. The moist heat really sooths her back pain, and now we have two! I had to get my own.

I have had major back problems for several years. So, needless to say, I know all about lower back pain.

I have tried other heating pads,some with dreadful results- Burns and blisters from pads that cook your skin.

The TheraTherm Digital Moist Heating Pad is the best heating pad I have ever experienced. The temperature control lets you raise the temperature two degrees at a time, as opposed to a pad which only has a low, medium or high setting. A couple degrees can be the difference between too cold and medium-well done!

The timer prevents overexposure if you happen to fall asleep,lose track of time or happen to walk away and leave it on. It can be set at up to sixty minutes, and then it turns itself off. That is a wonderful safety feature!

I like this heating pad so well, not only do I have one at home for "my spot" on the couch, I bought a second one for my desk chair at work.

This could possibly be one of the best investments I have ever made. I am 100% pleased with this product!

I suffer from chronic neck and shoulder pain and after extensive research purchased the Theratherm Digital Moist Heating Pad. This product is a little on the expensive side for heating pads but worth every penny. This is not your typical light weight heating pad that you would find at the discount outlets, in other words you get what you pay for. I purchased the model that is shaped to go around your neck and shoulders and so far am more than pleased with the way it gives me releif from nagging pain.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone that doesn't mind spending a little more to get a product that not only is well made but works as advertised.

If you're looking for a low/medium heating pad that you can fall asleep on without fear of burning, this is the pad for you. If you're looking for fast-acting, therapeutic HIGH heat, buy a Thermophore instead. I have both heating pads and prefer the Thermophore by far. The drawback to the the Thermophore is that it has only one setting: on or off. You need to hold onto a small switch to keep the heating pad turned on. The benefit of this system is that you directly control the heat. When you press the button, the Thermophore quickly turns hot. When it feels too hot, you let go of the button and it begins to cool down. In a few minutes, you press the button and get a second burst of high heat. This is called infusion heat therapy and is said to be the most therapeutic kind of heat. In my experience, this is definitely true. I bought the Theratherm because I thought it would be simpler. It advertises the same maximum heat as the Thermaphore with the convenience of digital control (simply set it to the temperature you want, and then set the timer for up to 60 minutes.) The problem is that the thermostat isn't accurate. It reaches peak heat very quickly and automatically turns itself off, never feeling hot for more than a minute. (Instead, it emits a low-level heat for up to one hour). So, consider your goals and make your choice accordingly. For me, I choose the Thermaphore (which is also sold on Amazon.com).

Make no mistake, this is a great pad. In the past four years I have purchased three of these. As much as I like the pad, this time I purchased a Thermophore Arthritis pad because this last one only lasted 8 months before it began to fail. Apparently there must be a design flaw in that after using the pad for awhile, it seems to develop a short where the cord is fastened inside to the pad. I do use my pad every day so this gets a good workout but nevertheless, I feel that something that costs this much should last longer. The one prior to this one lasted exactly 14 months which was just after the warranty expired. This one is still under warranty but it is going to be expensive to ship back and forth for replacement and I am just not sure if the hassle is worth it.

When this is new, it is great because you can set the time/temperature for up to an hour. I fall asleep most nights with it on my lower back which is my problem area. The relief is incredible and like their advertisement says, no drug store pad or cheap heating pad is even in the same league with this one. The moist heat it produces provides immediate and lasting relief. However, they do need to correct this design flaw since the last two have failed the same way. When it begins to fail, the digital display on the control will flash on and off. It will then work for a few days and do it again. In a very short time it gets to the point that you have to push and pull the cord and actually fold the pad over to press down on the inside wiring to get it to heat up. If this had not happened so quickly to the last two of mine, I would think it was just an anomoly. But this last one failed even more quickly than the one before so I am convinced it is a design flaw.
