Far Infrared Technology – More than 15 years of experience in the field of carbon materials have led to the development of Cabric®, a carbon fiber fabric with the ability to emit FIR (far infrared) energy. Thermedic’s state of the art production facilities in combination with highest quality standards make this fabric a unique base material for a variety of different applications, including medical and hot and cold therapy.
Compared to conventional heating pads which only produce “surface heat”, the Thermedic Far Infrared product line uses the superior far infrared (FIR) technology. FIR is a scientifically proven form of heat therapy that works more efficiently and effectively than traditional heating techniques. Whether you have a sports injury or chronic pain, our pads and braces are more effective than others. Far infrared is a completely safe form of thermal radiation, as it does not emit harmful Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMF) like most other electronic heating products. Unlike conventional heating technology which uses metal wires as heating elements, the unique Thermedic heat therapy technology uses Cabric®, a carbon fiber fabric which in itself is electrically conductive and therefore does not use any wires. The fabric naturally emits infrared energy which supports various therapeutic applications. No matter if you are suffering from acute or chronic pain or just use it for preventive therapy, Thermedic’s extensive product line of hot and cold therapy braces and pads is the right choice.
How does it work?
FIR is absorbed by the human body through “resonance absorption”. FIR energy occurs within the same wavelengths as
the molecules of the human body. Therefore it corresponds with the human body at the same resonance level. FIR energy travels in straight lines and is easily absorbed by the human body, reaching as far as 4-7 cm into muscle tissue. FIR heat reaches inside the body, not just on the surface. Due to this effective healing of sports injuries, our hot and cold therapy product is known as the “professional triple cold hot protector” for some swimmers.
FIR energy improves blood circulation in the affected area. This improves your body’s ability to remove waste, such as dormant cells and lactic acid, from muscle fibers, significantly improving your ability to recover from a sports injury. Upon entering the human body FIR energy causes a warming effect by activating molecules and body cells. FIR energy activates the cells, increases blood vessel resilience and promotes cellular functioning. Best of all, FIR energy provides fast, effective pain relief to sore muscles and joints.
