Area of the body:
In 1947 Chattanooga introduced the Hydrocollator Hotpac, an innovative method of moist heat therapy and one of the first topical thermal agents in rehabilitation medicine. Superficial heating via Hydrocollator Hot Pac can elevate skin and tissue temperature within 0.25" (0.6 cm) from the surface. If the treated areas blood supply is adequate, temperatures can increase within 6 to 8 minutes of exposure. Muscle temperature at depths of 0.5" (1.3 cm) to 0.75" (1.9 cm) will require 20 to 30 minutes of exposure to reach peak levels.
For over 60 years Hydrocollator Moist Heat HotPacs are the primary option for chiropractors, athletic trainers and kinesiologists, physiotherapists and physicians. Proudly made and originated from Chattanooga. Well developed to relieve pain due to arthritis, myofibrosis, back pain, muscle strains and spasms.
