Additional Info

More Details

* Requires no laundering. Wipe over with an antiseptic solution or a mild detergent

Note (regarding the use of an electric blanket / heating pad under the gel pad)
* Action Products advised that the heating pad be placed under the pad and pre-warm it. You must be extremely careful that the pad does not get too hot or develop hot spots as this will carry through the Akton pad and the patient could get burned. They should not take it above 103 degree F as this could cause burns to the patient. If the patient has no feeling then someone must check the patient at all times to prevent burns caused by the heating pad. The Action pad merely will transfer the heat as the heating pad produces it.
* Follow the manufacturer's directions when using a heating pad / electric blanket.
