Tear open pouch when ready to use.
Peel away paper to reveal adhesive tabs. Using adhesive is optional if you have sensitive skin or have body hair around the knees or elbow area. If 55 and older, wear over a towel or cloth such as a washcloth, not directly against your skin. It may take up to 30 minutes to reach therapeutic temperature. Do not place heat cells on the back of the knee or inside the bend of the arm. Bend knee/elbow slightly and place opening over kneecap/elbow. Secure tabs to skin (optional). Wrap straps around knee/elbow and fasten. Adjust for comfort. Do not over-tighten. Wear up to 12 hours. Do not wear for more than 12 hours in any 24 hour period. Place wrap flat. Do not fold or bunch as your risk of burn increases.
Stop use and ask a doctor if pain worsens or persists for more than 7 days. If you experience any discomfort, burning, swelling, rash or other changes in your skin that persist where the wrap is worn. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Each heat cell contains iron (2 grams): Can be harmful if ingested. If ingested, rinse mouth with water and call a poison control center immediately. If heat cell contents come into contact with your skin or eyes, remove wrap and rinse affected area right away with water.
