A Fireactiv thermal elbow support needs no batteries, has no wires and can be used time and time again by harnessing the natural power of nature. The support uses inbuilt technology in the form of bio ceramic particles. These particles reflect back the natural infrared heat from your body back into the muscle and joint beneath one of the special Fireactiv pads that you place into your support.
So how does it work?
Your elbow support is supplied with a fast acting red pad and a white slow release pad. These can be interchanged to suit your requirements.
During the manufacture of your support, special bio-ceramic particles are fused into the fibres of the pads. When worn against the skin the long wave infrared radiation is reflected back into your elbow and surrounding ligaments, tendons and muscles to create heat. This natural heat helps to reduce pain, particularly helpful with the pain of arthritis, tennis and golfers elbow and additionally helps speed up the natural healing processes within your body by increasing blood supply and thus oxygen to the affected area since the infrared heat helps to dilate your blood vessels.
Do Fireactiv supports really work though?
This is a question I have been asked in my clinic many times, mainly I think because there are no wires, batteries or microwaves to be seen!
Well the simple answer is a resounding YES! The red pads actually get really hot and the heat lasts a good while after the pad is removed too! That is why your support also comes with a white pad that still delivers deep tissue warmth but with less intense heat than the red pad.
As with all my products I will not sell them unless they do what they say they will and pass the test of actually being used by me before I bring them to you on the website or in my clinics. And I can honestly say I was very impressed at how effective they are.
Former England and Lions rugby flanker Lewis Moody says "Strangely it gets hot but when you actually touch the pad it's cool. It's bizarre but this is genuinely something I wish I had when I was playing"
