love this product
my husband works out in the weather and his joints will hurt in the cold this is first thing he get when he gets home
Best heating pad ever!
This pad was bought for low back pain. It is the BEST! I can sit in my chair and this pad lays perfectly and covers from shoulders to buttocks. It is so flexible that it conforms to your body. The extra large size enables you to avoid having to constantly adjust it to cover. I especially like the screw-in connector on a corner of the pad. It cannot pull out.
so far seems great
I actually bought this because of its size to use on my Dressage horse. So far it has worked beautifully. I put it his back 20 min before I ride and he is nice a relaxed though his back.
I have recommended this to several friends already !!!
Terrific Heating Pad
Just took this heating pad on a trip and used it every night! I love the size and that it warmed me up from head to toe!
I would buy this product again and again
You can use it all day
Broke after 15 Months
Im a middle aged woman with frequent back aches and pains. I found this pad extremely helpful given its large size and the heat was very effective. The pad was gently used but quit heating altogether after 15 months. Neither the seller nor the manufacturer would help since the warranty was only 12 months. Yes, it worked well while it worked. The way I see it, the price was high on a per month basis given the pads 15 month life. I liked the pad so much that Im tempted to buy another anyway with the expectation that it would have a short life.
I will buy again
I has back problem - I use to heat up the back ob the bed. It helps me a lot
"just what the Dr ordered"
It gives long lasting re leaf from aches and pains.
Great for my Neck
I was having a lot of neck pain from too many hours at a desk. The infrared heat really helped my neck muscles relax.
This product works wonders!
I sleep on this every night. My arthritis is tons better. It does what the anti-inflammatory medication does. My hip feels better than it has in years. This works!
Like the koolest thing ever!
Removes the pain
Great Infrared Heating Pad
I have had four back surgeries and this product is very
useful. I love it.
Best heating pad!
I use this heating pad for all my aches & pains. I have fibromyalgia and arthritis and osteoporosis. Broke my back severely 6 years ago and have nerve damage as a result. My back hurts all the time, and this makes it tolerable. Relieves the muscle spasms. The warmth is penetrating and long-lasting. Was introduced to this pad by my daughter. She let me use it when we were sharing a cabin on vacation. When I came home, I ordered myself one right away. Worth every penny if you have chronic pain problems.
I love this product!
I love the size of this product and it is very soft and comfortable.
A better heating pad
Covers lower back and shoulders
I quite often have severe pain in my back, hips and legs. It seems that heat is the only solution to the problem and this Sharper Image pad is a good solution to my problem.
It is light weigh , covers entire back. The heat feels good. Felt real good the next day after 20 minutes of use.
Best Heating Pad, Most Relief from Pain
I have sciatica pain and this heating pad provides the best relief from that pain. It works great in the morning to ease tight muscles, during the day to warm up the area before stretching exercises and in the evening to loosen muscles and relieve pain before going to bed. It is comfortable to lay over the top of the area, but also very comfortable to lay on or lean against. There are no lumps or hard places and it is rated for use under the body. This is the best heating pad I have ever used.
Greatest heating pad EVER!!
Having arthritis throughout my spine, sometimes even a traditional heating pad doesnt help. This heating pad - which is more like a heating blanket - is absolutely wonderful. No hot spots, and even on high it is not uncomfortably hot. Best investment Ive made in a LONG time.
Infrared Heating Pad.....
I had a bad fall and tore my left PCL and now have severe back pain. I use the infrared heating pad several times a day and it does take the edge off the pain while using it to watch tv or in my computer chair.
A Real Hot Item?
This heating pad, being infrared heat, does not heat up on the outside. Is this normal, or should it feel warm on the outside of the pad?
Oh my back!
I have had back problems most of my life. The typical heating pad would burn my skin and had to always lower the temp and then the effect was lowered. This is a blanket that heats my aching areas without burning. It is a soft blanket like material with no wires inside so you can lay on it comfortably and it does not burn. The size is perfect for me, 50,it covers from my neck to my hips, giving warm relief everywhere I need. The pad does not get hot, but my muscles feel the radiant heat and I feel better in no time. Folds up small, packs easy, which allows me to get relief wherever I am. Love it!
Wonderful for pain management. Though it was a bit overpriced, I would recommend it to friends and buy it again for myself.
I love this heating pad
Heats large sections of body at one time
I get terrible cramps and this heating pad is like a cure all. I also feel really good about not getting any of the negative electromagnetic aspects of the conventional heating pad.
Purchased as a gift now I want one!
This was a gift for my dad. He had a stroke last year and is now has limited mobility on his right arm. Was advised by physical therapist to apply heating pads to area to help him. With the stiffness of his arm. So I did my research and found that this one was the best, especially because of the infrared heat actually helps penetrate to the muscles quicker. He stated that hes been using it every single day! He is in love with it. I tried it and I think I just fell in love too! I want one for myself!
Great Infrared pad!
I really like this pad! Its large size can cover a lot of the body at one time.
I was surprised
I really enjoyed this product. It was bigger than I was thought it was going to be. My back is better and I am planning to buy another one soon for my dad. It was delivered quickly. I had no issues at all thank you
Its really helping my back! extra light
I have constant back pain.This is really helping me after any work that exacerbates the pain.
awesome heating pad
Very easy to use,You can lay on pad or sit on it for relief on different parts of the body at the same time.Lightweight and easy to use.
Soothes and relaxes
Have really enjoyed the penetrating benefits of FIR heat therapy. It soothes and relaxes my joints and muscles. I love its large size and lightness and the fact that it is 24v.
infared heating pad worth the money
After being on my feet all day I look forward to coming home and putting the infared heating pad on my back.Its large enough to cover my entire back and makes sleeping much easier WITH LESS STIFFNESS
Feels great, such a great surface area.
Seems like a really great heating pad. I would recommend purchasing this.
Very nice to hangout with on cool evenings.
This heat pad is wonderful
I use this product along with my chi machine and the combination is proving to be the absolute best...I use the heat pad for an hour and the chi along with for 20 min twice a day and have to make myself get off and do something....wonderful....recommend it to every-one
Only the Best
The pad is the perfect size. Large enough to cover each areas of my body, ie, entire back, legs, shoulder and neck, and torso. The pad feels great next to the skin it is flexible and comfortable. Plus it looks nice. The black pad cover is attractive. You can easily control the temperature and it turns it self off automatically.
A wonderful device. I am glad I got one.
Love it but it needs a timer shut off
Does not have a travel adaptor for the car.
IT WORKS!! LOVE IT!!
This is arguably the first heating pad that works amazingly well for my knees and lower back. I have recommended this item to friends and coworkers. I have taken less painkillers ever since I started using this infrared heating pad.
I use it a lot on my back i love it
It feels great on a cold evenint
The heat is very gentle and takes the chill out of a cold night.
Infrared Heating Pad
My wifes shoulder really hurts and demands intense heat that only a water bottle could provide but heat would not last long enough.
This I was skeptical about the infrared but really works well.
As for durability we will see.
I would buy this product again.
I use it at bedtime. I love that I can leave it on all night. I sleep so much better with it. It is soothing to my whole body.
I had low back pain and received so much relief from this lightweight heating blanket.
It comes in a plastic case for storing to keep it clean and ready for the next time you need to use it.
Bought it as a gift. The wife loves it
Excellent deep relaxation and warming
Use it on low setting to sleep. And it does the job. Warms me to the bone, relaxes muscles, and lulls me to sleep. Wish it turned off after 30 minutes as stated in catalogue. Sharper Image has offered me a $10 coupon for writing this. Hope theres no expiration date.
Warms you right down to the bones!
I have had lowerback pain episodes for years. Everytime Id have a flair up, it was a week of bed rest, pain relievers, and muscle relaxers. Recently I found out that I had a herniated disc and a buldging disc with a compressed nerve root---- but the neurosurgeon just wants to use pain management! In researching different pain relieving methods, I read about Sharper Images FIR Infrared heating pad. The theory of the deep penetrating heat made perfect sense to me. Furthermore, I read every single comment that had been written on the site about this product. Most impressive were comments from folks with the same type of back problems that reported much improvement. Most nights I sleep on the heating pad on my back....and my pain is steadily improving.I love the warmth that this puts out-unlike any heating device you may have tried.And when I get up, and turn the pad off, within a minute or so, my black cat Spook is right on top, soaking up the residual heat like he was in cat heaven!
Everything I thought it would be
Great for my bad back
Light weight and take to anywhere I go.
Reduced my pain killer medicines.
Protected my liver and stomach
Ive recommended this to others
I like this product enough that I bought one for a family member and have recommended it to my sister and a friend. Each of them bought one.
Not hot enough
My husband wanted to use this as a heating pad for an arthritic back, but it did not get hot enough. It gets only slightly warm. There are heated throws that get warmer than this pad, and it certainly doesnt heat enough to be a heating pad. It would be a good lap robe for an elderly person though. It is well made and attractive. We returned it because it did not suit our purpose; we wanted a heating pad. We returned it.
Nice Heating Pad
Bought as Xmas gift. Girlfriend loves it. Hope it lasts.
This really works great
I use this at night while I sleep. It has given my Sciatica Relief. The only thing that has relieved and reduced my daily pain. I have been going thru pain management but with this I dont need that any more. No more shooting pains down my leg and the numbness is almost gone. It was expensive but cheaper and better than pain management. Works best for me when I sleep. First time I have slept all night in a long time.
Serves its purpose
I like the fact that it is compact and can be folded up. While it seems durable, the instructions made it feel like it was fragile.
Great all over pain relief
Used it over my chair - even though it says not too but was able to get lower, mid back, shoulders and neck all at once!
Soft and Warm
Good for Chronic Pain
Do not purchase it.
I had purchased this product to use in my Massage Therapy Practice. I was so excited when I opened the product, hooked all the components together, turned it a to see the tiny light come on. In time for my next client, I excitedly told her "you are the first one to benefit for the new heating pad". Ugh, how embracing that it bearly heated up on high, she couldnt feel a thing. What a disappointment.
So now looking at the return instructions (which contains two different instructions) there is no guarntee Ill recieve my money back and to top it off, a slap in my face, I am stuck with the cost of return shipping. I expect a full refund for the defective product.
Worth every penny!
I use this product to relieve pain and stiffness. My first one was defective, but the company was very accommodating and replaced it in a very short time. I have used it a lot since I have received it.
must have gotten a defective one
it stopped working the 2nd time I used it. Customer Service is closed now but Im gonna call them on Monday...
Sleep time relief
It has gotten so bad sleeping through the night. I couldnt even change positions without pain. So I thought of heat and found this pad. I have a more comfortable sleep and less pain. Just good ol arthritus that makes one feel so old. So the warmth helps in the night and less pain and stiffness in the morning just by getting out of bed. Plus it stays on all night. I can bring it on my travels. So at home I place it under my fitted sheet and no shifting.
Appear to work as described
Is easy to use. Havent used it enough to know whether or not it works better than a heating pad. Instructions need to be updated; it states that when first turned on your controller will start on the Maximum Heat setting. It starts on the medium setting.
Infrared Heating pad
The pad is huge and what I was looking for. It does not get as hot as other pads but the size makes up for that issue.
infrared is just great for Colorado winter..or just warming the feet, or laying on top of it..or underneath..i am most pleased with this product, and have already purchased 3 more as gifts for friends..thank you.
Power levels provide perfect level of heat
Heat the malaise away!
I use this product mainly with a purpose of rejuvenation and healing for the whole body. Everything is great about this product. A full body pad would be even better.
Deep penetrating heat
Deep heat. Easy to wrap around arm or leg.
Love this heating pad!
Received this and used it that night. I love the size, the heat settings, the size and the flexibility of the material.
I would buy this product again and again
Me and my wife use the Infrared Heating Pad at least 3 times a week. It really help relieved pains especially after a heavy work out.
Heating Pad Review
The person who recieved this item felt that it was a worthwhile purchase. It provided a good amount of heat. The pad is oversized so one does not have to reposition frequently.
Infra Red Heating Pad
When ever I am able to sit or lay down.
It is very convenient.
It is not warm enough.
I use it at night while watching TV and in bed. It is comforting and healing. Morning aches and pains are much less since using.
I have degeneratve disc disease, arth. from lumbar to neck as well as spinal & cervical stenosis. It REALLY nice to relieve the entire back all at once.
It does take a while to heat up though then the auto time feature shuts it off. I just turn it back on, NOT a big deal. I didnt give 5 stars because the thing is expensive.
great product everything and more
It is so lightwieght no cords in middle so no disco fom laying on it . It seems towork better than the usaul ones
I love this product!
I use this product everyday when checking my email at night. The power cord is long and thin giving it unique connections within the house. The fact that it in infrared leads me to believe I am getting increased health benefit from it even when setting it at only a medium temperature.
Helps with muscle pain
Great for pain relief
I am very hard to please when it comes to aids for my health. I have been offered a standard heating pad, but do not find it as efficient as the infrared pad. I like the fact that I can get heat to my neck at the same time as my back.
Better than regular heating pad for back pain relief and I like the size.
Very flexible to wrap around any part of your body.
All heating pads should be this size.
Covers large area
I bought this heating pad because I suffer from fibromyalgia. I like the large coverage area. The lettering on the control is difficult to see, but once I found the appropriate setting, I just look for the colored light to determine my ideal setting.
Love its size, weight and easy to use
This was a gift to myself and I love it.
Will use it more and more the closer we get to winter here in Nebraska.
Well worth the price.
Great size and easy to use but does not have the 30 minute auto shut off as indicated. Returning only for that reason. Was told must of received a defective one but others have listed same issue. Not risking it for the price.
Got this for my wife who suffers from fibromyalgia and arthritis. She had been using normal size heating pads and has to be positioned in just the right spot. I wanted to give it as a Christmas gift, but she was experiencing pain the day it was delivered so I unboxed it and set it up right away. She laid down on it and immediately noticed a difference with more coverage. I may get her another one for the office!
Great gift for senior with joint pain
This will be a mothers day gift.
Best of its kind
Great for lower/mid back pain.
Extremely happy with this product
We have found that this heating pad is excellent in providing deep heat where we need it. Its large size covers areas much better than other products we have tried.
It is as expected.
The Best Heating Pad Ever
After spinal fracture in November I received the pad as a Christmas gift. Just love the warmth and size. I covers my entire back and does not bunch up like other pad do. Its the best gift of the year!!!!
Works great, deep relief soothing "FIR" heat.
Perfect size for the back of a chair or laying flat and providing relief from the neck to the upper thigh. Penetrating soothing warmth better and more subtle then a regular heating pad.
Infared heating pad deep warmth
First off I was surprised that you could not feel much heat off of the pad, I could feel the heat in my leg where I had placed the pad. I used the med. setting and laid under the pad for 20 min. as recommended. Next day I did notice an improvement to my knees (I had torn the meniscus in one of them).
Second I was wishing it came with a removable cover or in another color...black is difficult to keep clean looking.
I love my infrared heating pad!
I use it everday for my back and even sleep with it on low. Just perfect!
I had been using one of those seed filled pads that you put into the microwave. I dont do that any more. This feels better lasts as long as I want and makes my muscles feel better.
Best heating pad ever!
My husband bought for me and it is the best i have ever used!
worked just for a few months.
I have RA. It was wonderful for the even low comforting heat. But it gave out in 9 months. (Only used at night) the replacement item lasted less than 30 days. I was disappointed.
Infrared heating pad
Very nice and soft. Love the big size.
Great for arthritis!!
Used over several painful areas in my neck, shoulder and lower back - great relief!!
Great product - Reasonable price.
It helps to relieve back pain.
Good product, my wife has gotten relief from her aches and pains.
Much better than a standard heating pad
Good distribution of heat
Best investment Ive ever purchased
I have had back pain for over 10yrs , more effective than moist heat or heating pad
Its comes in a great plastic cover , makes it easy to travel
The suggestion to sleep on it for 2 nights worked great
Best investment I could have made to control pain
Best heating pad ever
Works great. Doesnt make you sweat, but the heat reaches your bones.id like a different color, because cats love to sleep on it. Hence cat hair all over it.
infrared heating pad
ordered the infrared heating pad as my husband has chronic back pain which gets worse during the colder and rainy winter weather - i used it myself as well as i have sciatica - it works like a dream - easy to regulate - the heat is soothing and the pad itself is soft and pliable - the product was received quickly and the instructions are extremely easy to follow. all in all a great product.
Much more soothing than plain electric pad. Love the size! I can heat all of my back from neck to hips, which is more efficient than regular heating pads. I wasnt sure if the "infared" would make much difference, but its a deeper heat,more even, doesnt get "hot spots" like other pads. I like the soft material. The controls are easy, but my 63 year old mom couldnt read the settings without her glasses (super tiny print). My only concern is the hefty price! I think the highest price it should be is $100.
Just ordered one for my daughter, too.
I have had a lot of heating pads, none compare to this. It is comfortable, no hard wires, the heat is better than regular ones. The heat does not automatically turn off. The outer cover is very comfortable and I love its larger size. I live on it. Just purchased one for my daughter and told my son to get one for his wife for Valentines Day.
Im using this to help with the cold weather and my fibro pain, and it feels good and works well.
solved back issue
This item has gone a long way in dealing with my Mothers back issues. She felt better after the first use. She uses it a couple of times a day and the pain flareups are fewer. She is quite satisified.
My feet are cold when I go to bed and this pad lets me warm them so I can get to sleep. It alse drapes on shoulder and back for aches. Wish an auto turn-off was dependable--it sometimes is off after Ive turned it onto high and sometimes not. ?? Generally, its a useful product and I hope it holds up for long use.
Cant sleep without it
I have ruptured discs in my neck and lumbar spine, and resulting degenerative arthritis causing me extreme chronic pain and muscle spasms. I am amazed at how sleeping on this pad every night provides a deep relaxing heat that loosens and relaxes the spasms. It used to take a strong pain pill first thing in the morning and then lying in bed about 45 minutes waiting for it to take effect before I could get up to start my day. The very first night I slept on this pad I woke up with minimal pain and NO spasms in my back! It covers from my neck to my buttocks and even helps with my sciatica. I have been using it now for a few months and it continues to give me great relief. I tried going without it one night recently to see if it made a difference, and I awoke in pain and spasm Ike before I discovered this wonderful modality. I take it with me when traveling and it even makes cheap hotel beds a non-issue for my back. It works better than muscle relaxers without the side effects. I ordered a second one for a ba
Infra red heatng pad
An infra red heating pad was suggested by my accupunturist for my back pain. It is a large pad area that covers my entire back and shoulders. Great productt.
I had been looking at an infrared pad for a long time but was put off by the "coins" that so many of them had, and the expense.
This pad is comfortable, uses gentle heat, and absolutely relaxes tense muscles and states of body. I absolutely love this pad. If this company ever makes a bigger one, I will buy it.
Best Heating Pad Ever!
This heating pad is my "go too cure" for my aches and pains! The best heating pad I have ever owned and I highly recommend it. Id buy it again and again and again!
Good product, slow shipping
I ordered this because my old, smaller, electric heating pad was wearing out. This looked good, not only for the infrared heat, but the larger size to cover my whole back. I have had prior surgeries, arthritis, and a lot of back problems. I love this pad and even sleep with it at night. If there is an auto shut-off, it does not seem to work, so be sure to leave it on low if you fall asleep. The shipping took forever....I had to write again and ask where it was.
Very Soothing treatment. Effective.
In the evenings while reading and winding down.
I do need to sew a cover that will come off for cleaning.
Helped ease ongoing pain - LOVE!
I bought one for my mom and my father-in-law who both have ongoing pain. My mom uses hers at night to sleep on in bed - it eases her sciatic nerve pain in her hip and down her leg. She loves it so much she takes it on vacation also. She used to warm up rice bed buddies in the microwave throughout the night, now she keeps this pad plugged in and doesnt have to get up through the night. My father-in-law uses it in his easy chair for his back pain. They both raved about how much it helps to ease their pain. This pad is very low voltage so that you dont have to worry about burns while using it.
Worth the investment!!!
I bought this for my wife to replace an old, worn out heating pad. She was so amazed with it the first time she used it, I had to try it out.
This pad covers my entire back from the top of my glutes to my neck (I am 6, 250# and broad shouldered). The heating is consistent throughout and the pad molds great to my body.
I am planning on buying another one for me!
The Best Heating Pad
I purchased this heating pad for my brother as a gift. He suffers from CRPS/RSD which is a neurological syndrome. His entire body aches and he has been miserable using a standard heating pad. He has raved about this infrared heating pad and thanked my profusely for finding it. He has recommended anyone else suffering from this same disease to purchase this item. He says that it never gets hot to the touch like a standard heating pad and the size of it makes it incredibly helpful to cover larger portions of his body.
Well made and light weight
I use this infared heating pad in the evening watching TV super cosy and relaxing
Plus gets rid of aches and pains
Take anywhere I go
I can not wash like a electrical blanket.
Water proof cover must be sold.
Great product - nice size too
Great pad. Bought it help relieve ongoing back pain. It does help. The heat is warm and soothing and doesnt burn your skin. It seems to penetrate deep in the muscle tissue. Very happy with this purchase.
Love this oversized heating pad. I have chronic pain and I am able to get relief from my neck to lower back and hips. It is overpriced, but this is the first time I have purchased an infrared heating pad. It does get hot enough for pain relief. The dark fabric does bleed onto adjacent fabrics, but it did wash out of my white sheets with some stain treatment. WARNING: I would not use on my fabric chair or sofa. A better price point would be $99.00 and offer sales and coupons. Love it though and would recommend!
I bought this for my husband as a gift. He has worked as a farrier for over 25 years. He is always very sore. Hes an old man before his time! We have tried everything from hot tubs to all sorts of ointments, chiropractor, massage and acupuncture. This pad is the first thing that has actually helped him! Every time he uses it he gets better. He can do things he hasnt been able to do in years. I highly recommend this pad to anyone who has chronic pain.
Infrared Heating pad
Use in bed
Perfect heating pad
This heating pad can cover a very large area and so at night it will cover sore knees and a sore hip at the same time. Sometimes, I use it on my back while watching tv and it covers the entire back. Temperature is adjustable to comfort level. Would recommend to anyone that finds heat soothing.
Infrared is the way to go!
I use this product while I sleep to help keep my tendons looser as they are tightening. I also have a problem with my neck and have a shoulder one also which I use whenever I have a chance, it does soothe my neck and upper shoulders.
I have used several heating pads, I like the size, length and the time this pad stays on. The temp. choices are great. The heat does not burn my skin it just sinks into my muscles and tendons. The pad is very lightweight. The 1st setting is a low setting that is just right for overnight use, I put it under or over the sheet. The 2nd and 3rd are increased heat as expected. The 4th is a nice heat for a shorter period of time. The pad heats up quickly. This is my second one... The first I had to have fixed and had a problem with Venture Heat - it took a long time to get it back. This one is made more stable, it is a little thicker and the cord seems more stable. I am hoping that this one is improved. I would recomend this to you only if you understand that you can only count
The heating pad is quite large and as such can be used for a wide variety of applications. However, the controls are difficult to use. I also think that some people will be surprised that it doesnt get as hot as standard heating pads, although the infrared heat is better than high surface heat.
Lastly, when I ordered this product I was advised that I would be receiving a $30 credit toward another Sharper Image purchase and I have still not received this credit.
This really does provide the deep heat. Takes the ache out very well. Boyfriend wants one now...
Infrared heating pad
I use it on my back after I shower in the evening.
Infrared Heating Pad
Purchased as a gift. Have not heard how they like it.
Use in chair. It is so long I can almost sit on it and it goes up my neck. It also has an inch or two on each side so has great coverage. The heat is good but I only use it on low as I get too hot.
I use this for my upper and lower back pain. Heat controls are easy to use. The heat is even and very comfortable. It is very light weight just like a small blanket that can be laid on or used to cover over the body part. Just a very nice and comfortable heating pad. Really like the fir for pain relief as it goes deeper and relieves pain and relaxes muscles quicker. No dislikes at this time.
this unit can be codidered a 10 .
This keeps my wife more or less happy as she is a great cluts....If there is a way to bruise herself she will....Now she has a place to go when that happens....Works fine as wine in the summer time....The husband.
