Hot Pack Terry Covers

Hot Pack Terry Covers

When using hot packs after part of rehabilitation or a fitness session or others, it’s important to protect the client from the very hot heat packs  or moist heat packs, if using it incorrectly can lead to burns. What physical therapists do is to completely wrap around moist hot pack in several layers of towel we call it terry cover. The hot pack is then applied directly on the exposed area that needs treatment. Generally speaking, hot pack can be covered with a normal heavy towel when in use, however towel simply absorbs the heat, while our terry covers allow for heat to transfer when using moist heat packs. This obviously can add protection and with greater comfort and sanitation. Therefore, using a tailor made hot pack terry cover is highly recommended.

When hot pack is removed from the tank (Hydrocollator Unit), this is put into a terry cover and places on the patient. The treatment will progress much faster with this great way to deliver moist heat to arm, neck, upper shoulder, back, knee, ankle or other position of the body to soothe pain or discomfort like – stiff neck, backache, arthritis, sprains or bruises.
