Please take a moment to read the following Contraindications and Cautions

It is always recommended to consult with your physician before using the Biomat.

 

***Remember to stay hydrated while using the Biomat.

 

Contraindications:

 

Organ Transplants
Recipients of any type of organ transplant (Kidney, Heart, Liver, etc.) should not use the Biomat. After an organ transplant, patients will need to take immunosuppressant (anti-rejection) drugs to help prevent their immune system from attacking, or rejecting, the new organ. The use of the Biomat’s far infrared rays increases immune system function, which will tell your body to attack the new organ.

 

External Pacemaker
We recommend anyone who uses an external pacemaker that they should not use the Biomat.

 

Use with Caution:

Medications
We recommend anyone who is currently taking medications to consult their physician before the use of the Biomat. The use of the Biomat’s far infrared rays may interfere with certain medications.

 

Fever
We recommend anyone experiencing a high fever to use the Biomat with no heat and negative ions only.

 

Joint Injuries
We recommend anyone with recent (acute) joint injuries to use the Biomat with no heat and negative ions only. Injuries should not be heated within the first 48 hours, as joints that are hot or swollen may respond poorly to heat.

 

Insensitivity to Heat
We recommend anyone with diseases associated with a reduced ability to sweat or insensitivity to heat to use the Biomat with no heat and negative ions only.

 

Immobility
We recommend anyone with difficulty moving or changing positions while seated or in bed to use the Biomat with low heat only (95F-104F) or negative ions only, for no more than 8 hours per day. Persons with generally poor health or weakness, paralysis, injuries or illnesses that requires bed rest or wheelchair use, sedation, or coma are more at risk for bedsores (pressure sores) or possible low heat burn.

 

Internal Pacemaker / Defibrillator
We recommend anyone who uses an internal pace maker and/or defibrillator to consult their physician before the use of the Biomat. In general, infrared heating pads have not been shown to interfere or damage pacemakers/defibrillators. However, there may be a small chance of causing interference occasionally. We recommend anyone who uses a pacemaker and/or defibrillator to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). The use of the Biomat increases circulation of the blood, which can cause an increase in heart beat. Some people who use a pacemaker, experience discomfort since their heart beat is being controlled. If you are experiencing continued discomfort, discontinue use immediately and seek medical attention. For persons with a defibrillator, do not lay the Biomat directly over your device.

 

Certain Ailments
We recommend anyone with the following ailments to use the Biomat on low heat (95F – 113F) or negative ions only. It is inadvisable to raise the core temperature to high levels of persons with the following conditions: Adrenal Suppression Disorders, Addison’s Disease, Adrenal Insufficiency, Systematic Lupus Erythematosus, and Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

 

Brain Tumour
We recommend anyone with a brain tumour to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F).

Bypass Surgery
We recommend anyone who has undergone bypass surgery to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). The use of the Biomat increases circulation of the blood, which can cause normal blood vessels to expand. Some people who have gone through bypass surgery, experience discomfort since their blood vessels can’t expand.

 

Diabetics
We recommend anyone with Diabetes to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). Diabetics’ skin is weak, which can cause low heat burn from the use of the Biomat. Once the skin is damaged, it may be difficult to recover.

 

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
We recommend people with chronically high blood pressure (hypertension) to use the Biomat with caution before and after use, and on low heat only (95F-113F). Sudden changes in body temperature and/or weather temperature may cause an increase in blood pressure.

 

Newborn Babies
We recommend parents with newborns to wait until their baby is at least 6 months
